I have a '12 GT/CS with Shaker 1000 system.
Recently noticed my subs weren't hitting as hard as usual. Popped the trunk and found one sub was barely moving and the other was highly distorted. Almost like somebody blowing a raspberry on someone's stomach.
Took out the enclosure and pulled the subs to find this:
Blown Sub: Imgur Imgur Imgur
Distorted Sub: Imgur
The blown sub is fried around the paper cone area/voice coil? and the distorted sub looks perfectly fine. I have no idea how or why this happened. I've been listening at the same volume for a year now.
Does anyone now the RMS rating of the factory sub amp? I would love to drop two new 10s in the enclosure I already have and plug it into the existing amp. Just not that excited about wiring a new amp.
The after market amp I am looking is a Boss Audio from Amazon for $50.
Max Power @ 2 Ohms: 1100 Watts
RMS Power @ 4 Ohms: 250 Watts
With two Kicker 10C104 from Crutchfield.
power handling: 50-150 watts RMS
peak power handling: 300 watts
Can anyone give me any advice on the rating for the stock Shaker 1000 sub amp,
cons of using the factory enclosure/amp. Feedback on the replacements. Any ideas why I killed two speakers at the same time. Anything really. Any help is appreciated.
