8040A low frequency overload

Youngling Posts: 0 Join Date: 3/16/21 Recent Posts

Hey there, 

I have a pair of 8040A's. One of them I had the driver replaced but now the low-end triggers the fault overload. Too much low end information? 78db @1m.  The sensitivity is set to +12, yet it's still overloading.

I think the coil might be overheating. 

Is this a known issue, or should I have them serviced again?

What's the need for +12 db?
