Question about Alpine SWR-1542D Car Subwoofer
I just got a 12in. alpine subwoofer that is in a sealed box and is powered by a 500RMS watt alpine amp. It is making a really loud knocking noise when there are low bass tones. I talked to best buy and they thought it might be in the wiring but i hooked a different sub up and it sounded fine so it is deffinitally the sub. Is the sub shot even tho it is brand new? or is it fixable?
Think as an expert... Probably from my experience repairing woofers etc... the cone (1) or the spider (2) isn't well glued onto the woofer skeleton(or both???) The woofer cone must be absolutely centered or else you will get those clicks in low frequencies(you also get them in higher frequencies but you can't hear them!) I must say that it is very difficult to repair a woofer by your own. I suggest to return it back where you bought it and take another one (i suppose that you have a guarantee ha?).
