I just purchased a 12"

Did you purchase your subwoofer from a retail location or online? If it was local, I would take it back. It sounds like a blown subwoofer. Pull the subwoofer out and smell it. If there is a burned smell, the coil was blown. This would also explain why the cone was not moving, just vibrating. Now the other possibility is the amplifier. Check the fuses and check where you grounded the amp. If you can use a multimeter, use it to check your ground. If it does happen to be a blown subwoofer, you should be able to exchange it (from retail), online takes more time but can be done. However, if you purchased from an individual and the equipment is used, there isn't a whole lot to help with. Good Luck.

Yes - your voicecoil is damaged.
The smell you experienced was the protective rosin around the voicecoil melting.
Fading in and out is likely the amplifier's protection when the subwoofer's coil grounds out to the polepiece.

Check the impedance of each coil using a multimeter. this will give you a definite answer if the coil is in fact blown.

disconnect it from the amp and use a digital mutimeter and check the resistance, if it's a 4 ohm sub your reading should be close to that number, if the resistance number is below 1 ohm, your sub is probibly blown

Is Sub Underrated for my Amp?

fuses wont restrict the current flow the amp is way too much for that sub. it may not have damaged that sub yet but it will. you might only need a 100 watts rms too run it.but you will need sowe where about 2000 watt sub too run off that amp
