It sounds like the voice coil is on its way out, did the box come with subs? or was a seperate purchase? Pioneer subs are great subs but are fusy about box size. For a sub that is 125 RMS and an amp that is 275 RMS doesn't matter, its all in the setup and how loud you play the sub, you could have a 125 RMS sub and a 600 RMS amp, this doesn't mean that you will get the full power of the amp unless you have the right sub combo, usally it is 275 RMS at a 2 OHM load or 1 OHM load ( 2 4 OHM subs wired in parallel will give you a 2 OHM load ) well im rambling, but I think your voice coils is going.
