    Default Are My subs blown?

    Earlier today me and a friend were seeing whose system was better i have two pioneer premier 10 inch subs and im temporarily am running a 222 watt sony explode amp. So i was listening to it and i turned the amp all the way up for more base. it played for a minute the the bae kicked in and it distorted really bad. then they wouldnt work and my amp light was not on. So when i got home i replaced every wire in the whole system. Now the subs work but when the base kicks in they distort and pop randomly. The base will work all the way up to volume 10 but after that they pop and fade in and out. So are my subs blown or is it the amp?

    First off, NEVER do this.

    You may have compromised both components due to your actions.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    Power amps aren't really intended to be turned up all the way like that. The only reason it goes up that high is so that it has some headroom.

    From the sounds of it, your speakers are probably blown. You'll be lucky if that's all you have to replace...your amplifier may be fried too.

    At least you've learned a valuable lesson about electronic equipment. It will only treat you as well as you treat it.
