You most likely have too much power pushing the speaker.

When you start it revs up and then almost stalls repeatedly puffing white smoke

Any sort of smoke from an engine indicates it is getting too much of something and broadly speaking too much fuel is black smoke and too much oil is grey smoke and if it is a car then white smoke (steam) would indicate water in the cylinder as if the head gasket was leaking big-time.

Broadly speaking means it is assuming the smoke is the result of the engine actually trying to burn something and not quite being able to manage it. Sometimes an engine gets such a lot of something it has no hope of burning it and it is pushed out of the cylinder in very much the same raw state as when it entered except the pounding of the piston and valves have made it into a fine mist or almost a vapour and almost regardless of whether fuel or oil it appears as white smoke.

This doesn't solve your problem but it could provide clues where to start looking.

Good luck!

Smells like smoke

Quit smoking. Put a shallow pan filled with ammonia in the vehicle and leave it in the sun for a couple of days.

My srm 450 dont automatically turn off when its not being used. Yesterday that same one started to smell burned and smoke coming out of it even though nothing was being played

Generally speaking this is a common issue with SRM-450 and it's due to opamp burned out inside electronic pcb, let me know further to improve help.

Hi My AVR 100 just started to smoke and then the sound went completely, think this sounds major it ?

Oh yeah, re-apply power ONLY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Get it to a competent tech to evaluate it.

Generally speaking, an amp smokes or tries to protect itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Speakers inop. on kenwood reciever

The speaker protection circuit sounds to be engaged. This protects you speakers form damage if a fault condition occurs inside the amp. Generally speaking, unless you have good experience at fault finding electronics, then this may be a job for a repair guy. If you want to know more about diagnosing the problem, get back to me here. Good luck :)

No need to buy a new speaker,
Inside the speaker box there is one TRANSFORMAR with 4 or 2 Diods & capasitor will be there that will connected to your Power cord & another line will go to Speaker ,

If you able to replace that your speaker will start work fine
