    Blown Speaker, How to prevent.

    I just blew my first speaker today.

    Im trying to figure out what went wrong, could i be under powering them?

    Im runing Infinity Reference, thats rated up to 100W and im using a kenwood 4ch am thats rated at 60W per chanel.

    the speaker still works but clips real bad...

    I have the high pass filter set for the loud speakers.

    Any ideas so i dont kill anymore speakers.

    Or buy them at good guys with the warranty. There a lot more money that way but I had a set of Cerwin Vegas (from Best Buy) and must have blown them 6 times. Every time they took them back and gave me a new set, no questions asked. If I blow one of my infinity's I think I will buy a set from the Good Guys then return the blown ones.
