Hey AudioQue Owneres!! and everyone else


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say today was the first day i smelled the coil of my AQ sdc2.5 15". I was pushing it firther than i have before (with a little clip)then came the smell.

so if anyone else ever had AudioQue SDC 2.5s before. can you tell me how hard you pushed them. and if you killed them. how?

If by pushing it further than before, you mean clipping it...don't do it and you won't smell coil burning, lol.

If it's smelling it's time to turn it down a bit.

How are your gains set?

How do you know it's only a little clipping?

i pulled out my dick in class many of times and had it shown. get over it bitch...stupid open legged hairy beavered bitch...

going over rms = smaller box, under rms = bigger box...

Low voltage doesn't blow amps. That's a myth.

A router that does the sub holes makes rounded edges also?

How much power are you putting to it?

900 rms (via SoundStream DTR1.400)

Brother had two on a aq1200. Never hard clipped and subsonic exactly at box tuning. If it played 1hz below tuning you could smell the coils. They never actually got hot and even after we took them out if the box the coils looked brand new. Think it's just the subs being so stiff.

Yah as soon as it started smelling it i turned it way down

My level input is set to the preamp volt on my head unit and my bass boost is around 65-70%

and the bass did not sound distorted in any way so im just gussing that it was probly clipping a little.

and yes i know i need to o scope it to make shure.

People in orlando with a o scope. i need your help!
