If you check ohms with speaker disconnected it usually shows a little less than rated, so a 4ohm coil might show 3.7 ohms. It will change if you move the cone, and you can't check them hooked up to an amp.

Yes I would check meter or connections first as that would be pretty strange if sub is just sitting there. If you can look up the full specs on the sub it should tell you what actual ohms are.
