    The guy at audiosource that repaired my amp told me that my subwoofer is also probably bad. Is there a better way to test this than by pushing on the cone? I'm not sure what I was listening for... He said if I hooked up a blown sub to the amp it could mess the amp up again. Any suggestions?

    If pushing the cone with equal pressure on all sides doesn’t get a rubbing or scrapping sound, the speaker is fine.
