First I would check all connections. Then If they are ok, Check the lead wires from the voice coil to the terminals. They can often break. Then if they are ok, Push gently on the cone. Does it move at all(Freely)? If no then the lacquer on the voice coil has swollen from heat and bound the woofer. You would have to either have it replaced(Serviced) or buy a new woofer.If the coil burned out it may have shorted and possibly damaged the amp. To make sure the amp is ok you may wish to check and see if its turns on and that it doesnt go into protection. If its seems ok you can test it with another woofer at LOW volume just to insure there is no amp damage. You dont want to push the other woofer too hard until you are sure the am is ok because it may crank out straight DC voltage and cook the test woofer so be fread to shut it off fast in that case.

  • Yea, you blew the voice coil. Pressing on the cone where you are is hitting the spot that is making the coil connect again. Just like a shorted wire. Sometimes you can bend it and get a connection. You are gonna have to replace the sub.

In a sealed box ; when i press down on the cone i hear scratching. is this bad? (the speaker still plays) i have been powering it with a kenwood kac-9103D at 2 ohms 900ish watts

I could be getting a problem. If you push down on the very center it shouldn't make any scratching sounds. But if you press down off center you might be rubbing the voice coils along the magnet and thats the scratching you are hearing. When the speaker becomes hard to press down that is when its about to go.

I think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone

that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

Disc is unreadable??

Sounds like a defective disc, which are produced sometimes, you might be able to take it back and get a different disc but your probably going to have to shell out another 60$ if you want to keep playing past this.

If you would like to try and fix your disc yourself there are a few ways, search scratched disc and there are plenty of ways to fix. is a more direct link.

please post what you decide to do.
