Woofers Burning

Q : Why do my wooofers keep burning up?

The two main causes for burnt voice coils are a clipped signal coming from the amplifier and mechanically overdriving the speaker.

This means that in your system's current configuration, you are driving the system harder than it can safely deliver output.  There may be several areas you need to look at in order to increase your system's capability.

  • Your amplifier may not have enough supply current, battery and alternator upgrades may be necessary.
  • You may not have enough clean amplifier power.
  • You may not have enough enclosure efficiency.
  • You may not have a clean source signal.

Consulting with your local dealer can help diagnose the issues and find an upgrade path to get your system's output where you like to play it.
