Default most money you've wasted by damaging equipment?

I think I'm in about $280...which isn't so bad...$50 was from buying a broken sub/box/amp without knowing how to test it properly...

Anyone here blown some expensive ass 18"s or something, or a high end 2k + amp?

Edit: please post prices if at all possible!

i spent a assload of money to get a custom one of a kind sub from DD and within 2 weeks i launched it so bad that the only thing holding the cone in was the surround and 1 coil lead. i cut the surround and coil lead and the cone assembly came right out.

this is what it looked like when new. i still have the cone and cap as a reminder to never do what i did again.

well, the suspension is to move the audio, hehe.

Word of advise, VERY GOOD ADVISE!-

NEVER use bolt-on air ride suspension for your vehicle if the stock suspension cannot handle the load.

Bolt-on kits are not capable of handling extra weight either.. Thanks Airlift for not clarifying after 3 blowouts.

I now recommend Slam Bag Specialties for all of us bassheads.
