Question about Rockford Fosgate RFP3212 Car Subwoofer
I have had two of these subs for quite some time and have not had any problems til today. Upon re-installing my system,i could only get my right subwoofer to go. I switched the speaker wires and had the same result, which proves that the speaker wires are in working condition. I then took the non-working subwoofer out of the enclosure and checked all the connections and all appeared to be secure. Im out of ideas of how my left sub could just stop working like so.
It's surprising to see one fail after such a long time, but most likely either one of the tinsel leads (between the speaker terminals and the voice coil) has broken, or the voice coil itself has burned out. You should be able to see the tinsel leads; if one has broken away from the terminal you may be able to solder it back into place. If it's broken on the speaker cone side, it's unlikely that you'd be able to solder it without damaging the cone. A break in the voice coil won't be visible; to test for it, check for continuity between the two terminals. Unfortunately, it's probably going to be easier to replace the subs than repair them.
