I bought a pair of bassworx 12" subs new and broke them in but it's been 6 months and they still give off a burning plastic smell when i crank up tha volume... any advice?

It's probably just glue. Plug your nose, or install "SPL odour-blocking" febreze.

It is a promble of adjusting your gains and the design of the box....50 watts can burn a 1000 watts woofer.!!!!!
