    Re: My sub just stopped working!!!!

    what type of sub is it? What amp do you have pushing it.... as for figureing out what went wrong... start at your wires from the amp to the sub... then check the wires inside your box.. if everything connected correctly you can also take a 9 volt battery and put positive to positive and neg to neg and see if the sub jumps at all.. if it doesnt and you have made sure the wires goin to the sub are connected correctly then more then likely the voice coil in the sub burned up on you... there are a couple of other tests you could do.. if you want to know more let me know... but that should give you a good idea....

    Some amps have separate fuses for each output or each pair of outputs. Maybe you blew the fuse for the sub output and the fuse for the speakers is OK. Check your fuses.

    Also, if it wasn't properly secured, the extreme vibrations, could cause the wires to come loose and make a bad contact. Check everything carefully. Sometimes it's easy to miss the obvious, so double check.
