This crack(s) came out of no where today. Could it have been caused by my subs? My subs are definitely not capable of pressurizing my room. The inside panel wasn't damaged at all?


No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

I've seen a busted glass like that before. NO, it wasn't a sub woofer. It was a pencil jammed in the middle hinge and when the door was shut, it warped the frame enough to pressure the middle and fracture from bottom left, across the middle and then to the upper left corner.

If that means they're double glazed and only the outer is cracked then the force that caused the cracks came from outside the window, not inside.

Were you there when it happened? Definitely looks like something damaged the window from the outside. Maybe a bird hit it?

If you find out that your sub actually did break the glass, I might be in the market for the same brand. Lol

I remember when products were built to last.

That's not really all that impressive even if it was the case. Serious subs crack drywall, really serious subs crack concrete. eek.gif

The three way speakers I built with 12" Rockford Fosgate subs will give me a serious headache but they've yet to break anything. Maybe I need more power.
