I got two alpine type-r's i think ive blown them but im not an expert. they still work at lower volumes but they sound sort of papery. and when i raise the volume my amp goes into protect-mode(audiobahn) are they blown or what?
might have fried your tinsel leads...i did that on an L5, it'll still hit VERY softly but sounds very....paperish...yea great word! I dont know where you got em but i'm sure if you contact Alpine they'd be happy to fix it for you, or if you have a really high end audio store around they could probably fix it.
