New to car audio
As the title states, I don't know much about car audio, but since acquiring my Intrepid, I've wanted to upgrade the audio system. The other day I came across a sub box with two 10" drivers for $7. They said the speakers didn't work; I was skeptical. So far I've got one speaker working, but not the other.
Two questions: 1) is there any way to diagnose the speaker as completely dead vs. simple fix? I have ruled out the wiring, as the one driver that works, works in either side with either wire setup.
2) I don't have an amp, I tested the box at home on a receiver (for about 5-10 seconds at a time to limit damage). What do you recommend for an inexpensive solution to get things running?
The subs are Ultimate brand; TS1000DVC. Looks like 200W RMS, 400W peak, with dual voice coils.
Thanks in advance, I love this site!
