    So I was listening to music and it stopped for some reason. Upon further inspection I seem to find the problem. It seems that on the end of the subwoofer box (for a truck, with 2 12", long and narrow) the covering seems to have lost its adhesive and the cover came right off. Its the covering for the original box that covers 2 holes. First, is this the reason it stopped? 2nd, can I just get some all-purpose glue and stick it back on, and how would I get pressure on it?

    what do you mean by "cover"? You mean the carpet? That is cosmetic, and will not cause it to stop playing.

    No, it's not carpet, it's like a wood/particle board or w/e covering that seals it. With it removed, there are 2 holes to the inside of the box that has the wires coming outside to the covering , which connects from the outside of the cover (with like connecters to go to the amp.

    Yah, I read earlier about that stuff. How would you get pressure so it sticks tight and doesn't happen again, or is pressure needed that bad.

    what?

    apply liquid nails, insert, and put a book on top of it for around 20 mins. Make sure to remove the sub first... the fumes can be harmful to the cone's material.
