I just installed a new Pioneer ts-w307d2 and everytime I crank it up loud I get the wierd smell comming from the sub.  I'm am using a Kenwood amp that is rated at 460 x 2 RMS amp and the sub is rated at 400 watt RMS.  The gain on the amp it a little less that 3/4 the way up.  It sound great  and everything but I'm just woried about the smell.  Could this be because its new?

Sounds like the sub is over-driven.
Prepare your future. It wasn't the lack of stones that killed the stone age.

Is your amp rated at 460 watts times 2 channels?  Or is it rated at 460 watts into 2 ohms?

The only time I have smelled a burning smell coming from a woofer enclosure was when the woofers were being severely overdriven.  As already stated.
