Unhappy Just blew the voice coil on one of my Kicker CVR

well i have been driving a 1990 Nissan Stanza while im in college because they ol' 4Runner needs some work. I have had a 5 or 6 year old JL 10w3 V1 powered by a 10 or so year old amp in there for the longest time and i was tired of how puny it was.

So i decided to take the behemoth of a system that was in the 4Runner and squeeze it into the stanza! hahahahaha. It is 2 Kicker CVR 12s with Dual 2 Ohm Voice Coils and a Kicker ZX 750.1 amp. The amp came with a certificate saying it was putting out 860 watts one one channel!

Well this system sounds really good and beat the stanza to hell and back. Just recently Ive been having problems with the right sub and now i know for sure it is a blown VC

Doesn't Kicker rate there amps by the rms power? I was pretty sure that they did. So each sub is getting 860w or is the power split between the two. 860w is a lot for one of those subs over time.

does it make the cool scratch scratchy sound when you manually press it in? I've always been impressed with the cvr's

860w mono from the amp would mean the power is split between the two subs. Sucks about the vc. If you want to make sure it is blown you can read the risistance through that coil with a DMM just in case you are hearing something else rattling.

Well he could have run both sets of speaker wires to the two terminals giving him 860w to both subs. I've seen it done.

you may have just burnt one of the tinsel leads, i have seen that happen often on the kicker subs. i would check that before you deem it a blown voice coil. if its a fried tinsel lead its not too difficult to fix yourself

I suppose, as long as he wired it to 2 ohm and not .5 ohm as those would be the only two possibilities doing it that way. However, even if both were hooked up to the same channel it is still 860w TOTAL from the amp to whatever is hooked to it however it is hooked to it. In other words it is 860w to the two subs total, not each. Anyways.....

That is an interesting looking box, was it made for different subs? looks like there is some kind of adapter plate on it?

hey guys i forgot all about this thread lol. If you are talking about the leads that go from the terminal where the wires hook up to the sub, i have fixed those before haha. A couple times on that particular sub. It still pounds and works even though i think it is a blown VC.

During the week im at college so i dont really have much time to tinker with it and see if it is blow for sure or not. I have it wired up in a 2 ohm fashion, dont want to blow the amp. That would be very costly.

My father and i made the sub box and it was a ported box originally so that is why it is so wide. i did not know anything about making ported boxes and just made it how i think it would work. However it would only hit highs so i sealed off the ports. The "adapter plates" are where i accidently made the holes for the sub to big and had to put another piece of wood over the top of it to make it work lol

Here is a pic of when we were making it. I used to have Xplods...
