Question about AudioBahn AW1206T Car Subwoofer

I have 2 AW1206T's how do you know when their blown?

I have 2 AW1206T's the voice coils make a real bad noise at higher power. I ran them at exactly 1100rms but peaks did go over 3000watt. i need to know if their blown or if the coil is falling apart. Thanks

    Ok, yeah it was $90 a sub for new voice coils and installation so better than $300 a sub to buy new stuff. Apparently im not the only one who has the subs do this and it is the voice coil falling apart.

When a sub is blown it usually makes a scratcy or grinding noise if you push the sub in but if its blow it realy wont make much of a sound so it sounds like your voice coil is going out you will want to get this looked at quick or it can get expensive...i had one were it was cheaper to buy a new sub rather than fix it. it can also just be it disorting from too much power. i would never go over the power limit when dealing with 3000 watts, that can get realy expensive quick

I have two audiobahn aw1206t 12in. subs in a box hooked to a 100.1 american bass amp its 1000 watt mono block. i also ran a capacitor due to my lights dimming. but for some reason my amp keeps kicking over...


This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.

It makes a rattling sound when i turn it on


It could be the box. Boxes wear out over time and get loose. If not then its the voice coil. Theyre not blown all the way but youve done damage and burned some voice coil. I have 2 of them with bad voice coils that do that rattling. But they still hit super hard. To find out take the sub out the box and turn it up. If no noise then its the box.

My kicker 12 inch solo-baric L7 rattles real bad like something is loose but there is nothing visibly loose what could it be ?


Its blown. Maybe not completely but youve done some damage. If your sure its not hitting the box anywhere and its tight, then thats what it is. Youve burnt the voice coils a little. They regulate how far the sub goes in and out. I have two kicker L7 12s that have bad voice coils. And thats what they do. Theyre in my trunk though so its not to noticeable and they still hit super hard. -->

Also it could be the seal for the box. They wear out and boxes get leaks or weak causing flexibility in the material so when subs hit it vibrates the box really bad. Try removing she speaker from the box then turn it up and see if it makes the noise. If not then its probably the box. Let me know.

1984 dodge van has power to the coil but not from the distributer, and it doesnt start. van ran fine until the positive post came off while driving down the road, it just died and hasnt fired back up...


Does the coil produce voltage? I know it has power to it, but is it throwing voltage? if so check the coil wire at the distributor. if power is reaching the distributor but not throwing spark from any plug wires, your problem is a bad rotor and or cap. Or bad wires.

I have two jl audio 12 w6v2 running with a jl audio 1000/1 and at high volume they make a poping noise does any one know y


That popping noise is your speaker telling you to turn it down, and that your amp is too powerful for your setup. The speaker cone is moving beyond its limits of excursion and on it's way to malfunction/blown. Basically the voice coil will fry.

Breaded copper wire fried


Do you mean the voice coil is fried? Well, as it seems that you do not know how to do it, don't attempt. You need special coil winding macinary, and most importantly knowlage of voice coils. Its not just wind the coil. I'd get a professional, because its a lot more then just rewinding a coil

SPL160's with 2 blown voice coils


Downgrade to two subs.

The simple fact of the matter is these are long out of production. Nobody can get you a replacement coils/spiders at this point.

The sub could be rebuilt, but it could only be ran by itself. It would be a different sub all together and couldnt be run with the counterparts.

Bad solution for you but the only viable one.

Lanxar VW12D no sound after excess play


I'm not understanding what you mean by the "Sub doesn't even sound blown" if it doesn't play at all. One thing you can check is if you gently push in on the cone you shouldn't hear anything, if you hear a scratching noise and can feel resistance then you have a problem. If you have an OHM meter, you can check the voice coil impedance, it is a down and dirty way of checking to see if it is good or not. Measure all of the voice coils that you have and they should all read about the same, not necessarily exactly the same but pretty close. This test should tell you a lot. If it seems to test out fine there is something wrong else where. Let me know if you need more help.
