Subwoofer smelled like smoke, fuse or voice coil blown. dunno how to open it

As in description. Anyone else had theirs blown? I was playing it at low volume when it happened too. I'm not sure how to pry open the Sub as its essentially two egg shells together.

DON'T PRY IT OPEN! EVER! Just take it to radio shack and they will be able to do a visual and possible expert evaluation for free and them tell you what they suggest. Too complex to descrive on the internet. Plus you shouldn't try to do anything by yourself even with instruction.

What is the cause when smoke appears from subwoofer


For a passive subwoofer it means you sent too much power and fried the voice coil. For an amplified (active one) likely the power amp has blown. In either case repair is required.

  • Yea, you blew the voice coil. Pressing on the cone where you are is hitting the spot that is making the coil connect again. Just like a shorted wire. Sometimes you can bend it and get a connection. You are gonna have to replace the sub.

Smoke was coming out of my subs and it was alot.


Open the sub box and see what it looks like before you go purchasing stuff with no problem for certain. You may have had wires touch and they will smoke. Also try connecting a different speaker to the amp and see if it works. this lets you know if the amp/speaker is working or not

Smoke coming out of subs


If smoke has come out of the subwoofer, the speaker itself, that means the voice coils have been heated excessively and they are damaged or in this case, I'd say completely blown. Voice coils blow because they've been driven too hard, too much power, too much distortion for too long.

If you can get access to the front of the subwoofer speakers, gently put even pressure with your fingers near the middle of the cone, just around the edge of the centre dust cap and push gently and slightly inwards. If you hear or feel a "scratchy" type sound or feel, or if they dont move in freely, they are blown. And if that's the case, your amp could be damaged as well.

Most modern car amps have circuit protection and will shut down when they detect a load greater than they are used to so the amp MAY be ok. One way to test the amp is to hook another speaker to it, any speaker as a test is ok, and see if sound comes out. Make sure all power is off when connecting and disconnecting speakers!

Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
