Well... I think I finally killed my Shiva. I knew this would happen someday, because I put it through some pretty rough LFE tracks There is a rip in the yellow surround stuff underneath the cone, Im not sure what the proper term is. But it attaches to the cone just above the voice coil. The sub still works fine, but it makes a rattling noise whenever it is playing caused by the rip. Here's the question. I could go and buy another shiva and just drop it in, but is there anything that would give me more ouput? Im using the EBS alignment with a 300W plate amp (AVA250), and I don't quite have the resources to go ahead with a major upgrade; I would like to keep everything except the driver. So do I have any alternatives, or should I just get another shiva? Thanks in advance.
