Depending on the particular series, there are small differences in the ideal sealed box size for these three subwoofer options. Add to that, the JL Audio 12W3 and Wetsounds Revo 12 will have slightly...

Bypass the crossover and directly measure the impedance of the horn tweeter across the tweeter terminals with a handheld multimeter. If it is 'open' it's the tweeter that's bad. Don't pop a tweeter...

Bulging midbass drivers on a hot day. But only with sealed midbass drivers and really good airtight pods, like the Kickers featured. Not usually an issue on proaxials with a center horn because the...

If the pods are cast, then this is fairly common, even in inland fresh water areas. Plus, Asian coatings, if that's the case, usually aren't the best. Once fully stripped, and prior to a replacement...
