hey guys.
quick question.
i need help.
i have three kickers :rolleyes:
one of my kickers has a bad coil. if run with out the 2nd coil on the sub it works just fine. but the bad thing is that i have the other 2 subs that are running with all the coils hook up.. so is it bad to run with 1 coil on one sub?

AS of RMS being the same. max power been the same ?

subs are
4ohm dual.

The power going to each sub will not be the same, as the load on the damaged one will be different form the other two. It could pull twice as much (if the coils are/were in series) or half as much (if the coils were/are paralleled) as the other two. Not to mention that the TS parameters of the damaged one will differ from the other two, i.e.: will not sound the same as the other two.
