Your obviously passing to much current through the amplifier and its creating distortion, i suggest you check the limits of the 10's and then check what the power output rating of your amplifier.
Hitting them hard all the time will shorten the life of the sub as it wont be able to rebound as well after its been pumping in overdrive.
Please if you have anything else reply

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,


Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

If the speakers vibrate especially when the mega bass is on, does that mean that the speakers are blown on my icf-cdk50?


Real low bass is mostly vibration. Anything that has a "mega bass" 'enancement' is cutting corners to make up for bass-reproduction shortcomings. Speakers measuring 2-5/8' have no business reproducing real bass. Blown speakers would be silent. Torn cones from excessive volume might sound like unwanted vibration. Your vibration might be a resonance of the unit's own housing, mounting hardware or something nearby. Try moving it to another location.

These units are not economically repairable. If you like it and you think it's broken you might snag a whole new on on eBay with wise bidding.

When i first bought my alpine type r 12's they were perfect bass really loud but now they aren't as loud i think the cone inside messed up


If the cone messed up there would be a lot of rattling. Most likely the subs have just gotten broken in and won't sound as loud as brand new. Over time and with use a subwoofer magnet will start to weaken. When the magnet weakens it won't hit as hard anymore.

2 sony XS-L102P5 subs, sound great with deep bass but cones chatter when I hit them real hard


There is a possibility that you may be overpowering or under-powering your speakers with the amp you are currently using or are playing notes below the specified range of "Hz" of the subwoofer causing the sub to sound distorted or as you would call it "chattering".
If the speakers range is 130hz-45hz and your playing notes at 30hz and dont have it tuned at the crossover either on the amp or the stereo to suit the subwoofer, the speaker will try and play the note regardless and will cause the cones to move beyond its range and may cause it to slap the magnet which can damage the subwoofer if consistently played that way. Please let me know if this solved your problem..

Powered Subwoofer hits hard even on dialogue.


This sub doesn't have a gate (keep the sub from engaging when the source level is low) so it'll "hit" for any input signal. What it does have is an adjustable frequency low-pass filter. If it's kicking in for sounds that don't need big bass reinforcement, try turning the filter to a lower number. The sub will then only kick in for really deep sounds.

Bass sounds muddy and volume is minimum.


Hello mercedesman4,

Your setup sounds great. I had to settle for Blaupunkt in my Mercedes.

It sounds like the culprit is your enclosure. It's possible that by tweaking the settings, you could improve the sound somewhat, but having been used to the sound of a sealed enclosure, maybe not. Sealed enclosures tend to produce tighter, more accurate bass and have a flatter frequency response curve. They are also generally the enclosure of choice when looking for a SQ (sound quality) oriented setup.

Ported enclosures will produce louder bass than sealed enclosures, and maybe that's why some audio guys push them. They also allow the speaker to operate more efficiently, so you need less amp power for a given volume. Higher tuning on a ported box will get louder, but at the expense of sound quality. Lower tuning will still get louder than a sealed box, and the sound quality will be better than a box tuned higher, but still not as good as sealed. That's what I meant about tweaking the settings. You may see some improvement by setting the crossover lower, decreasing bass boost, or by turning the subsonic filter on/off. I'm no audiophile, but personally I've never been able to stand the sound of a ported enclosure, however it was tuned. Sealed just sounds better.

Hope this helps.

Sit low Bass @+3 / Mid@ 0 / Hi+10
Add SubWoofer with separate Amp and use low pass filter @78hz cuttoff.
