Stinky Sub - uh oh?
So I got some new speakers recently, and I was testing them out at high volumes with the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. After about 30 minutes I noticed a smell; what I would consider a burning electronics type of smell, coming from the sub. It's a Def Tech 10", about 10 years old. I've never really pushed the sub this hard before. The sub still works, but I unplugged it and want to make sure I don't damage it further (and that I don't burn my house down). Has anyone had this happen before? Do you think it just got too warm, burning off some dust? Or is the amp about to blow?
Do you think it's safe to keep using at normal volumes?
