ok so i just in stalled my systyem and i opened my trunk today to look at my subs rite after listening to them and it smelled bad, kinda like burning. im assuming i blew my subs but they still sound ok so idk. i think i might have my gains set a little too high but idk what my output voltage is from my IEC AULOC line output converter, its adjustable but idk what the maximum or minimum voltage is on it. the subs dont make any werid noises like any clipping sounds or any distortion they just smell bad and i am at most over powering them by 150 rms each. o by the way i have 2 kappa perfect 12.1s and a PG R15:0.1
also are you using a stock head unit or anything with bass knobs on there? also if your amp has a bass boost try not to set it to hi on there. i had the same problem you did with ym arsenals and the bass boost caused a lot of distortion and caused my speakers to smell to. i actually bought another amp that wouldnt distort to much. also it could be them breaking in but i wouldnt risk it. make sure the wiring is correct to. hope some of this helped
yea just got them in yesterday. but i never really pushed them as hard as i just did. But it was only for like 10 minutes. but yea it could have been glue or somthing but i really have no idea, it just smelled bad. my home stereo subwoofer used to make a similar smell when i really pushed it and eventually it completely blew so idk, im kinda worried.
