guys i think that my drivers side woofer is not working anymore, i already check the RCAs, and the speaker wire (on the amp, crossover, and speaker)...
and i think its the driver...
it could be the wire ( some part inside the carpet) or the crossover, but i dont think so becouse the tweet is working fine, but i will check them on the weekend..
but if its the woofer what can I do??
it doesnt smell like burned, and it looks fine at first glance..
i have the SR6500

If it is the woofer, you can call up polk and order a replacement woofer. Tell them you are part of club polk forums and you'll get 20% off and free shipping (this was last time I ordered). Replacement isn't going to cost too much, but it comes bare, so save all the parts off of your old woofer.
I think you need to get a multimeter to check wire continuity to the speakers.

Polk customer service is pretty awesome. They are prompt and the ability to order each piece separately is great.

guys it wasnt the driver..
it was a problem with the crossover, but it was solved easily...
the thing is that i hit a pot hole in the road, and since I have a lowered vehicle and a rock solid suspension, the hit was actually very hard, and one of the cables on the crossover get loose or break...
I went to my local shop to check it all with a multimeter, and find the broken cable, next to the crossover..
So guys thanks a lot for all the help, I really appreciate it..
And I was so scared =( but thankfully it was only the cable..
Now I love more my SRs
