    subs work like engines...you can tell when something is wrong...and you can definitely tell when you blew something up :D

    what does it sound like?

    i looked this up

    1 If a speaker is blown or partially blown it will distort. This may produce a static-like sound or a fuzzy distortion. If the speaker is completely blown it most likely will not emit any sound other than distortion, and if it is partially blown it will distort at loud levels.



    2 Test by touch. This is usually only helpful on woofers, but if you can lightly touch the cone of the speaker, you may be able to tell if it is out. Speakers, especially woofers, vibrate and displace air. So if you touch it and it is not moving even when the volume is turned up, it is probably blown or partially blown.


    3 Isolate the problem speaker. Most car stereos have fade and balance controls. Use these to discover which speaker has blown. If you do not have fade and balance controls, you can place your ear near each individual speaker to find the problem one.


    4 Take it to a professional. If you cannot find the problem, let a professional caraudio technician look at the speakers.

    99% of the time on a blown sub you can pull it out of the box and smell it, you'll know it if its blown

    Not sure I understand the logic here. Clearly there's a problem or you wouldn't have posted. How does it being an older model fix it? If I said, "Hey, I think my car is broken." and then followed it up with, "Nope, false alarm it's just an older model."

    WTF....have I stepped into another dimension?
