Pretty sad right now. I recently reconed 2 custom 18" hdc3 motors with some aluminum recones. So tonight since they had cured for a few days I decided to throw one in my test box (6.2 cubes @ 34) and hooked it up to an MB quart 1500 @ 1ohm
Turned the volume on 1, little bass, nice.. volume 5, more bass ... nice. Sounded perfect, no mechanical noise ( i expected some as the sub is inverted), played a few songs then turned it up, barely got the cone moving playing a Rise Against cd and the ****er started smelling, not like a voice coil cooking like Ive smelt before... and then she lets out a puff of smoke and no more bass....
I cut the amps as fast as I could but it was to late, shes cooked.
So I unbolted the sub form the box and the sub smells like arse, nothing on it is "hot" though, Only part I could feel was even slightly warm was inside the pole vent
I can still move the cone in and out, but its tough, its defientely binding on something, tight on all sides.
Since the sub was a fresh recone and I was kinda skeptical when I recieved the recones.... I dunno what to say..
Would like to hear what you guys think, Im almost scared to put the other sub with the same recone in the test box to see what it does......
