Coil is fried. the copper windings arround the coil are melted or unwound and rubbing on the cone insert. Play it till it goes out completely or replace it if it's that bad.

I have a 12" d4 type r 1000 rms and a alpine 1000 amp speaker sounds great but smells like something is burning, my amp never over heats or shuts down but the smell is still coming from the sub?


Cut your gain back on the amp. It sounds like they are set too high. Check your install instructions on how to set your gain. If you have a 4 or 5 volt output head unit your will not be at half way. Im running a JL Audio 500 /1 on a skar wwv10 dvc in a ported box. My gain is set about half way & its plenty loud.I have a Alpine 9887 headunit 5 volt output on my RCAsI can take a volt meter & set my speaker output at 45amps & my gain in perfect.

What amp would be better to use with what speakers/sub? I have a KAC-7202 kenwood 920W maximum power (150wX2 RMS, 4ohms) (230wX2 RMS 2ohms) and then the other amp I have is a Alpine MRP-M500 mono power...


I'm using that Alpine right now for 2-12" subs and I have compared it to 6 or 7 other amps this month and most were 4 channel 150Watt/Channel Bridged to 300Watts x 2 and found the Alpine to be superior in both sound quality and loudness. The Alpine has also not turned off even with full volume for hours at a time, Very solid amp I was very surprised due to it's size!

What is the best box for 2 ALPINE SWR-1242D 12"SUBWOOFERS TYPE-R NEW SUB WOOFERS


Ported and tuned to around 37-40 hertz. After all displacement the box should be in the 2.2 cubic foot for sub and you will be very impressed. Build it yourself for optimum sound and output.

Popping noise on my 12" type r subs


The subs are making that sound when the bottom out + when they reach full excursion be careful if it keeps happening eventually your subs will fail because you will end up damaging the subs voice coil.

Subwoofer stopped working


Put another known working speaker in there to see if it works. If it does then the issue is with your speaker. If it also does not work your amp is to blame.

Help!!!!


I would say any decent pair of 12" or 15" (single 4 ohm voice coil) subs that can handle at least 500W rms would work. The rest is going to be based on cost, type of box, type of music, etc.
