Default I keep getting screwed.

Alright So Ive been building this box for the 2 15s, spent good money on materials and just about to pop the beauty panel on, so I pushed lightly on the cone to see if it was sealed waiting for the other sub to pop down with it. Only to find out that the cone is stiff.

I haven't even removed the old wiring setup from it from when I received it a week ago........

The motor probably shifted in shipping and is pinching the voice coil.

don't cut it up

pull the motor cover and see if the slugs shifted. if they did, you can force them back into position and it might still work.

that should mean the entire back is what shifted. {the top plate is bolted to the basket}

You can realign it and after the cone is movable, see if it ohms out ok and then see if it plays
