What does breakm in period have to do with a smoked voice coil, obviously he was putting way to much distortion through his sub and cooked the coil. Luckily for him Future Shop has a one year over the counter replacment on all speakers.

I can blow a 1000 watt sub with 50 watts. overpowering a sub will usualy not kill it. sending it a shittass signal will. distortion kills.

you clearly have no idea what your doing. search the fourms and learn some basic things. not trying to rag on you. I was in your same postion a few years ago but I did my research before I asked stupid questions.

and steer clear of the place selling the clarion subs. either the guy has had extremely good luck with clarion, doesnt know what hes talking about, or hes feeding you shitt. I have yet to hear of ANY subwoofer manufature having 0% of there products failing.

my buddy has 2 clarion subs that are making beutiful paperweights.

Who warranties smoked voice coils? Read the fine print on your warranty card.
