Default Can you recone these AK Audio subs???

I have two AK audio subs bought from a local dealer, they are dual 2 12s one has blown but id like to just redo both. I have no idea anything about these subs there was no manual when i purchased them. The guy told me they were dual 4s and i wired them up @ 0.5 ohm on a Ap 3k and blowed one channel on the amp. Amp will be audiopipe 3k, im sending it to get fixed. I need these 1500ish rms dual 2 ohm, CF dustcap, dual spiders, rather not have direct leads. Heres some pics of the woofer after i took the blown one apart.







I need a ballpark figure on what you would charge to do this plz. Thx in advance

I love how easily and cleanly the assembly came apart.

I do like the look of basket and motor.

I'm sure Dave can help you.


{sorry your new sub failed already}

He meant. Guy said they were dual 4s. Come to find out they were d2s. Accidentally wired to .5ohm and fried his amp.

Looks like it was put together with regular silicone, instead of CA glue...

I bet the spider came loose under power, which lead to the coil looking like it came out motor (which Im sure it did, lol)...

I know these woofers. They have a good motor but what I was told is the retailer (A GA,FL shop) didn't want to spend any money on good soft parts, or good glue. The build house tried to convince the retailer otherwise but clearly they didn't listen. Here is a pic that I have in case anyone is interested in seeing what it use to look like...
