Hey guys. I have two 10" kicker CVRs. Had them for around 10 months now and they stopped working. At first I thought it was a connection issue somewhere and not really any kind of sub/amp issue since they would kind of cut in and out. I checked all my connections and everything was great. So today I hooked an old xplod 12 up to my amp and it worked great. I even took both the 10's out of the box and wired them right to the amp too... nothing. I just can't see both subs blowing at the same time. And why would they cut in and out? I have no idea whats wrong with them. Any input is greatly appreciated... thanks guys.

Have a volt meter? If so set the voltmeter to check continuity and apply the leads to the speaker terminals, if it reads 0, your speakers are blown.

Use a DMM (Digital Multi-Meter) to check the resistance on the coils of the CVR's. If it says Overload or 0, the coils are blown. If they read what they're supposed to (3.7 or so for 4 ohm subs) then it sounds like a wiring or amp problem. Maybe you are trying to wire the subs to too low of an ohm load for the amp and it's going into protect?

the digital multi meter will work like an earlier post said, or a simple test, doesn't always work but if you push getly on the woofer cone and move it back and forth if it has a scratchy feel to it like rought rubbing odds are your voice coil is toast.

Ya, i think the coils are taost. They're The DVC subs and the i hooked up the other side and it works. But i think the way i wired it is making the amp put too much power to the subs cuz it cuts out if i turn it up too high. But it works just fine at lower volumes.
