I'm not familiar with this particular model but this appears to be the filter inductor in a class D amp. If I had to guess, the white smoke is from the filter capacitors connected to this inductor.

You should check with Boss to see if it's available. If it's not, you can re-wind it. You'll need to measure the diameter of the wire to determine its gauge.

If the filter caps vented, you'll have to replace those also.

if the wiring to the sub is correct, then you have something wrong with the amp itself... something is power surging to the subs which is causing them to blow

BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS SE950 Car Audio Amplifier: I have a SE950 boss amp, hooked to 2 audiobahn 12"...


Sounds like you are over working this amp for sure.. Upgrading your power wire & battery might help, check your gain level on your amp to. This is not the volume for the amp. Its to get both amp and the cd player on the same page... And most of all if your subs are wired up to .5 ohm stable, see if your amp do the same... My answer to this ?? Upgrade your amp, Boss audio was never a good company to me, but that is my opinon. Audiobahn set up all the way..

I have a boss class-d mono bloch 3000d When i turn the volume nub on the amp up it make noise throught the speaker


This is just a thought, what gauge wire are you running to your amp? The more current that passes through a wire the higher it's resistance becomes therefore dropping voltage across the wire and ultimatley not allowing your amp to perform as it should.

Amp Will Not Stop Overheating


You say you have 2 p312d2 subs. Ok so the d2 stands for dual 2homs (2 X 2homs voice coils per sub) , conecting in parallel the 2 voice coils of only one sub will create 1hom load to the amp, and if your amp is 2homs stable per chanel that means you are lowering too much your homs causing the overhwating to it.
