I have a 5inch focal speaker it does not ohm out and wont play,it does not smell like it it fried,when a coil goes on a speaker will it smell burnt or do they just go,and how can I get a excact replacement

The voice coil in the big speaker could have been damaged if driven to loud. See if the burnt smell is strongest near the center of the big speaker. If the voice coil is fried, you may be able to still find a replacement as there is a part number for the voice coil (V/C Assy, EON-G2220-27005-00) and the cone (EONG2
Cone Repl. C2REON15P-2)
Blown speaker driver. Buy a new speaker of the same frame size and ohms (Omega character symbol) usually 4, 8 or 16 ohms. Contact the manufacturer if its an expensive name brand. Check the manufacturer's literature to determine the Ohms, it will be listed. You have turned up the speaker too loud and fried the magnet. Buy better speakers rated in watts RMS... the higher the number, the better.
how about ohmage? ensure that the speakers are the proper ohmage OR higher (at least prolly 8 ohms, 8? ) and ensure that you do not have multiple speakers hooked up to any channel, as two 8 ohm speakers in parallel on the same circuit would reduce the ohmage to 4 ohms.
also ensure that you do not have any fried vioce coils in any of your speakers (woofers, mids or tweeters). a fried voice coil could reduce the ohmage as well. if necesarry, use a multimeter to test each speakers ohmage, an 8 ohm speaker should not test any lower than 6 ohms at rest with a multimeter.
if its not an ohmage issue, and all speaker wires are verified fine, then it is the amp itself- prolly an integrated circuit chip, which are usually not repairable by the user.
ok, your amp is in protect mode. either the speaker wires are crossed and shorting out, your woofer's vioce coils are melted and the speaker is blown or the amp is dead.
to determine if the speakers voice coils are melted, and thus the speaker being blown is the reason for the "protect" light, simply push in the cone of the woofer in gently with your hand. the woofer should move a little more than an inch, without any resistance, before bottoming out. if there feels to be any resistance, like a rubbing or scratching, before the woofer bottoms out, then your voice coils are fried, and you need a new woofer.
protection mode engages when there is either a crossed/shorted speaker wire, an incompatible speaker or a blown speaker with fried voice coils.
check your wires for shorts and/or loose strands of wire, your speaker ohmage (should be single coil, 4 ohm) and your speaker's operation. if you push the speaker in about an inch or 2 and there is some resistance, like its sort of scratchy when it moves, then the speakers voice coils are fried. speakers should push in and out freely, with no scratchiness or resistance, until they bottom out at 1 to 2 1/2 inches.
if it is not the speaker or the wiring, then the amp is damaged.
the voice coils are probably fried. you may want to check your amps to see if they are putting out dc voltage. you may be abel to find a place that can fix the subs. otherwise you will need to replace them.
Sorry I do not believe that sub to be rebuildable. You can try running the sub with only 1 voice-coil but either way I think it is time for another sub unless it is a de-soldered tinsel lead (where you connect your wires to the sub).
The 2 ohm stable rating on the amp is PER channel meaning that you could effectively hook up a 2 ohm speaker or a 2 ohm load to each channel without the amp getting f"d up-butin bridged mode it will only be 4 ohm stable. to achieve a 4 ohm load with your sub the type x wire the coils in series that will get you at 4 ohms to run in bridged mono .But you will get the exact same amount of power if you wire each coil to one channel of the amp as bridged mono sees the sum of your 2 ohm channels combined-Hope that helps.
