Default a little help troubleshooting!!!

ok so today im bumpin away (alot of lows in the song)driving to work when all of the sudden one of my subs (12 RD Sonance V1 flatwind) starts playing crazy lows like never before. it was lower and louder however it seemed uncontrolled, very sloppy. then i noticed that anything above 38hz wasnt as loud as before almost like the subs werent working as efficient. I did some minor t/s in the parking lot at work but i didnt have my MM so i didnt scheck the coils. to the touch both subs seem just as firm as each other. its almost seems like the spider is torn or something. i havent gotten a chance to pull them out of the box to check. So as if that wasnt enough i play a 10hz track at pretty low volume just to watch the subs and see if they were moving the same, and the opposite sub the :good one was moving like normal and the "messed up" sub didnt seem to be moving at all. im pretty dumbfounded right now. but hopefully ill get a chance to pull them out of the box tomorrow but until then...


ANY THOUGHTS

i totally thought i blow the box open. (SEALED enclosure) im thinking maybe the fiberglass bottom broke or something. hard to say until i pull the subs out. unfortunatly i have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that its a bad coil... i didnt hear any mechanical noise or anything so we will have to see.

are you sure both subs are still working? Sounds like one stopped working and now the other is in twice the airspace with a passive radiator.
