Question about Visonik Car Audio & Video
To be absolutely sure of which terminal is positive and which is negative, we will use a 1.5 v
battery to have the speaker react as though it is playing music.
* special note * do not use any more than 1.5 v as it may damage the speaker coil
As we know, batteries are marked positive, negative, or both ... we
will use this to our advantage when hooking up the battery to our
In our example, we used standard speaker wire which is "polarized" (one wire is made of copper and the other is made from tin .. interestingly, this serves no electrical purpose)

Once you have connected the wire to your speaker, proceed to
briefly touch the free ends of
the wire to the battery terminals (as shown below). In some cases, extended contact with the battery has
caused cancer of more clarification on the original question sub co - speaker_hookup.gif. blown speaker)

It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

sounds like maybe the wiring from the cone to the magnet is ripped or broken.... which is why when you push the cone in it works because it pushes it far enough to make the wires touch just barely, but when you let it go the wires seperate and you get no sound.
Your wire is built with slack, so when the cone goes in and out during a song, the wire can move with it and not get broken. but when you cone moves too in or too far out, then that wire can snap or become disconnected.
I have fixed this by soldering the copper wire, but you may lose some power because your copper wire might be a bit shorter(it will probly break again)... or you can lengthen it, but it is not easy to solder... some places will fix it for you but the cost may be more than what it is worth.
This is just a guess, take your speaker outta the box, and look to see if these wires are broken, lose, or frayed.

Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.
