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..

It's not hitting hard at all


Signal getting to and from the Amp is problematic, if you do not have the correct wiring that will carry the necessary power then you are never going to get the sound you are looking for. Start with testing the AMP and then Wires....

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.

My sony 10's sound great and produce deep bass but if I hit them real hard the cones chatter. Help


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

Blown?


Typically you will hear a popping sound when the bass hits, or you may not have any sound at all.......If the sub sounds good then your ok.

On a side note, pulling on the cone while the sub is in operation can damage the unit because it cannot move freely under load

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.

Sony XS-GT - Burrrrrrrr Noise


It's likely that the cone is damaged, which isn't repairable. However, another problem I've seen with Sony speakers comes when the tweeter pod becomes loose on its mount. To check this, look at the bottom of the speaker magnet. In the center of the back plate, there should be a small screw. It might be hiding under a sticker. Try tightening the screw, if possible.

One hits harder then other


Check the Polarity on the subs, you might have to invert one. Best way i know of to test is get a BASS CD -=download a bass test cd...legally of course=- and check for a test that will just flutter the speakers in and out and see if they both go in and out in the same way, if one is in and the other is out that could be your problem

Enclosure type


Sealed box and somewhat large if they are 12's I usually try to get 3 cubic feet overall internal dimensions and generally the inside dimensions will be 13" tall 32" wide and 13"-14" inches deep. with no divider and make sure the box is sealed. Personally I like to phase the speakers backwards. Gives the bass a little more rumble.
