Spyder disconnects easily.

I work in car audio as an installer. I've gone thru 4 of these subs. unfortuneatley i'm switching. They don't actually handle the power they say they do continuously. And every single one i've had the spyder disconnects from the cone at around 600 rms.

Wear in period is somewhat of a myth. I'm a full time installer right now. And have been for 2 years. Every sub is broken in if you will and my gain is not cranked b/c any sound if distorted will blow your subs no matter how loud you have it.

Are you giving them proper "break-in" time? Also, if you have your gain set too high or especially have the LOUD on or BASS up on your head unit you will get nasty uncontrolled excursion which can tear ANY speaker up.

    i can attest that break-in time is NOT a myth. I have been an installer for 11 years, and am working on a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering and have worked closely with Engineers from companies such as Cerwin-Vega and Paradigm...
    Ayway, speakers ARE tested before they leave the plant, but it's only a 3 or 4 second sweep/warble test. So, the gleus in the spider definitely HAVE NOT had time to break-in. Think of it this way... Take a t-shirt and smear it in glue. Now bend it as fast as you can. It breaks in half, right? Now take a second glued-up shirt and slowly bend it back in forth... it becomes flexible right? Same concept. I've seen it too many times and can vouch for it's effectiveness.

Flashing Blue is not defined in the manual.

Have you tried changing the Auto Standby switch to ON?

You can prove if the sub amp will respond to a known good input by TURNING ITS VOLUME DOWN tp start and just feeding it ANY RCA output from the receiver while playing, say, FM (to keep it simple). That way you would known in which direction the problem actually lies (internal or external).

One sub works other doesn't


Disconnect the wire from the speaker and meter it out. check it for a dead short, the meter would read 1..... You can also check the action of the sub by pushing on the center lightly, moving the cone. If it's blown, it will not travel smoothly. If your meter reads ......1 then you've really done it and totally cooked the wire clean thru, thus no resistance. Hope this helps.
