Default Driver sag Worries?

Hey all,

Been a while since I read and posted on here,

My question / Situation:

I live in a place now, for about the last year and I hardly play music or use any real subbage cause im just not aloud too, My sub is nearly 3 years old and in its first 2 years off life it was played hard! constantly but within its limts.

My question is will not using my subwoofer as much for this length of time (1 year) cause a some sag in the suspension? ...my sub is front firing and the subwoofers are alpine 12" type R's

If you need a pic just search "Dominator" I just dont want my sub to have any problems for a long time, it hasn't now just checking

Like might I have to rotate them around fully for the same amount of time? or isn't it an issue with front firing?

Thanks Cya

Sagging is always a problem (over time).
My 15" are also front firing, so I turn then 180 degrees once a year.
I have earlier turned some of my older big drivers 45 degrees every three month.
I'm not sure which method is best............

I wouldnt worry too much.
The suspensions are very light to keep the mass down.

If you really feel you need to change them then I would go for a 180 degree change once per year.

I wouldn't worry about it.
