Has anyone else been blowing their HK mids in the front doors? The front right went a couple of weeks ago, and now the front left has blown as well. At a hundred a pop it is a little ridiculous. I know I listen to music loud but I don't think they should be blowing.

Is anyone else having this problem?

If u got the humming noise try putting silicone around the surround. If it works it saves you alot of money and if it doesn't your out nothing. Mine had a buzzing/crackling noise that i fixed by turning down the fader but i got tired of doin that so i just put a gob of silicone around the whole surround and it sounds like new

So are these speakers just that weak or are we pushing them too hard?

In my opinion save your money, disconnect the mids and get a decent set of 2 way components to replace the front.

The silicone idea is also good. Another similar product is Copydex. Copydex is a liquid latex which you can brush onto the foam. It actually soaks into the foam and effectively turns the surround into rubber. The big problem is that where the foam glues onto the speaker frame and cone, often the glue rots. Copydex will not be strong enough to replace that, you need contract cement or similar. Unfortunately, you willnot know whether the glue has rotted until a few "loud" weeks later when the rattling noise resumes.
