Here is one quick little way to test the speaker.
Disconnect the wires from the amp that go to the speaker and touch them to a 9 volt battery.
If the speaker moves and you hear a sound then it is NOT blown and if you hear nothing and it does not move then chances are you have a blown woofer.
There are of course other more technical ways to test it with a digital millimeter but the simple 9volt battery quick test is easiest.
If t he voice coil is shorted and blown then there is usually no way to fix that and you would have to replace the speaker. (Some speakers like JL Audio W7 series have removable voice coils that can be replaced but most speakers do not.)

Can a kicker cvr be fixed if it is blown if so how


Speaker lesson here. For space and time, I'll not get into certain nomenclature. Working from top to bottom, you have the cone, rubber surround, basket, spider, voic coil former, voice coil, and the magnet. The binding posts are connected to the tensil leads which connect to the spider and the voice coil. As the woofer is positively + and negatively - charged, it creates a magnetic field which moves the woofer up and down. There is a small gap between the magnet and the voice coil and former that's called a magnetic gap. This gap is what helps the speaker to move up and down, and creates the Xmax. The Xmax of the woofer is the maximum linear excursion the woofer can travel without causing permanent damage. With a blown speaker, normally the voice coil and voice coil former have been pushed out of the correct magnetic gap, usually around the top of the magnet. That means that the only way to fix it is to take the woofer completely apart. My suggestion is to just go and spend the money. A blown speaker is a sign of abuse, and voids warranties from the majority of companies out there to include Kicker.

off the same amp? you have two way different sounding speakers man. you can buy 2 identical speakers from the same company and brand and series and they will play differently every time. you have 2 speakers with nothing in common so you will hear a difference and maybe interference because of the different ohm levels.
