Wow, were the holidays busy. sorry for not coming back before now.
I pulled the sub away from the wall today and started my troubleshooting. I put on a demanding LFE track and slowly turned it up until I heard the bottoming out sound.
The good news? The amp is not clipping.
The bad news? The rubber around one of the woofers is ripped right where the cone meets.
Upon further inspection both woofers show signs of cracking; both where the cone and rubber meets and where the rubber meets the frame. The one has about a 3 inch rip right along the joining.
Wow, so what now? I am not sure. ;-/
The sub gets about two to three movies per weekend, hardly under a huge load. Purchased in Aug 2011.
I guess I will try to reach Seaton Sound directly. Any other suggestions?
Hi Gordon, You should already have a response to the e-mail you sent this weekend. It sounds like a problem might have developed with 1 driver which then left the other flapping without both drivers loading the box. A rather rare occurrence, but certainly possible. We'll handle replacement of the woofers by e-mail and have you back up and running quickly.
