Question about Car Speakers & Subwoofers
I bought two 10 inch P3 subs, and im powering them with a 600.1 rockford amp. I had them professional installed, and one of the subs kept blowing out. the people at the store kept getting mad at me but, i swore it was not my fault. when it blew again i finally just took things into my own hands. I took the subs out of the box and immeidiatly realized that one of the subs was a 4 ohm. i was so angry i went back to the store to show the men it was not my fault it was theirs, and maybe get my money back after buying the same sub 5 times!! but with my luck the store had gone out of business(i wonder why!). I orderd 2 new 2 ohm p3's of the internet and installed them myself. they are wired properly to my 600.1 amp and i have i very nice brand new pioneer deck. Once the system was finally hooked up correcty, it sounded better than ever! but in just 7 days one of the subs blew out! It just doesn't make sence. each sub handles 400 watts and i only have 300 going to each. Is there some other aspects that could be causing my subs to blow out. or did i just get the one malfunctioning sub when i finally got it right??? please help!
Be careful with fosgate amps. They are more powerful then what is stated on them. I found this out when I blew a 15 with a punch 260ix. These amps are made for competion use. The 600.1 does not push 600 watts as stated. I had one tested and it actually pushes close to 800 watts. Turn ur bass level and ur gain to about 3/4 power and this should solve your problem
