Yesterday outta nowhere one of my subs just stopped workin completley but the other one was fine. I pulled her out today and disconnected the wire from the sub and the port that runs to the clips that runs wire to the amp, and put new ends on the side connecting to the port, then put the wires back to the sub. Worked long enough for me to feel good about fixing it, then stopped working again. Any help? Speaker is not busted i checked it up and over and my testers says theres power running to the port connection inside the box.
I had the same issue with 2 Punch p1's. The wire stripping was most likely cut where the wires are saddled against 2 bare metal "C" shaped tabs before going toward the cone and coil. This was causing the wire to ground out. I cut both wires and **** connected them and bypassed the factory bracket. They work fine now. This is a poor desogn from Rockford and I can see where it might happen numerous times.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Using an ohm meter to the sub will confirm whether its bad or not. Invest in a cheap test set of 6.5" speakers.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.
well, hopefully the amplifier was wired correctly. But either way there are so many factors that can cause this problem... But the biggest one is the amplifier must have been sending some distortion to your subwoofers which a subwoofer can take a certain level of distortion and be fine but too much will blow any subwoofer even the highest of high end subs at a high volume... when your subs hit the point of blowing they will tend to just blow out one at a time... they don't just pop both right away. I'd say get the sub that isn't blown off off of the amp before it blows too... distortion is clipping most of the time... when you destroy the subs it will eventually work it's way to the next component in the system which is your amp and then you will be out an amplifier and subs. save yourself the headache.......
It sounds like you have a bad voice coil in the speaker.You can have the speaker rebuilt, but it is very expensive. People usualy only have very high end home speakers rebuilt, because then it is worth the cost. Hope this helped.
Mine recently started doing this, the reason it is occuring is because there is a short in your amplifier that is drawing too much voltage and sending incorrect feed to your subwoofers. I wouldn't advise you to use your amp until it has been serviced. If you pull out your subwoofer from the box, you should smell the back of your sub, you should smell a crisp burnt smell from the voice coil internally being fried.
