The voice coil can be properly checked with a voltmeter. Disconnect the speaker and use the OHM setting on the meter to check to see if it measures around 4 ohms. Is this speaker a subwoofer? Some subwoofers will be rated at 2 ohms. Either way, any speaker should have a sticker or stamp on it telling what the impedence is. Typically, most speakers will be either a 2ohm or 4ohm measurement. If the coil is bad, you will either get no reading or one that is much higher than the 2ohm or 4ohm. Hope this information is helpful.

My jbl eon 15 g2 smell like burnt and everything works but the big speaker


The voice coil in the big speaker could have been damaged if driven to loud. See if the burnt smell is strongest near the center of the big speaker. If the voice coil is fried, you may be able to still find a replacement as there is a part number for the voice coil (V/C Assy, EON-G2220-27005-00) and the cone (EONG2
Cone Repl. C2REON15P-2)

How do I get sound from my subwoofer


Need more info, is it powered or passive, is audio making it to the speaker cabinet? Make sure by hooking the wires or cable to another speaker. If you have done that already then it is time to see if if the voice coil is burnt(indicating the sub was played too loud too long). Access the speaker and gently push on the cone. Any resistance or scratchy sound would indicate a burnt VC. Time to replace the woofer. Any other problems you would need to be much more descriptive. Make, model, how you were using the sub when it failed, etc.

WHEN YOU PUSH DOWN EVENLY ON THE SPEAKER ITSELF...IT JUST SUDDENLY GIVES-WAY, WITH A KIND OF POP. DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE WOOFER IS BLOWN??? AND IF SO IS IT POSSIBLE TO REPAIR THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM? ...


The first thing to do is to check the resistance of the voice coil. Get an ohm meter & place one lead on each of the speaker terminals. If a value of 0 ohms results, or no reading at all, the voice coil is blown.

If you are pressing in, and suddenly gives way, my guess would be that the excursion of the speaker was too grand (common with car stereo, everyone loves bass) and the wires that wrap around the voice coil of the speaker were broken from the speaker inputs.

It is possible to recone the speaker, but by the time you track down a recone kit (highly unlikely that it is even available) you would be rather deep into the project.

Long story short:
check the speaker terminals with an ohm meter. If you get a resistance, they should work with free woofer movement. No resistance = blown woofer.

Volfenhag ZX4725 i am buying this subwoofer and


No the LOWER the resistance the MORE Output or Draw, If say it is 100 Watts into 4 Ohms, if you used a 2 ohm speaker it would draw 200 watts.(only if capable of delivering that amount of power) The LOWER the Resistance, the HIGHER the Current Draw. WATTS = AMPS x VOLTS. (This is not strictly true with amplifiers output though, as it is an AC Current, and a "Reactive" load, it has, Inductance, Capacitance and Resistance, all in one.and is worked out via a Formula) see below. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_power

http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volume_1_1/v1n1spk.html

Now with Dual Voice Coils, Essentially, you can think of these speakers as TWO speakers in ONE enclosure. As such, They are basically TWO Speakers. Please see the website below it explains everything for you. http://www.diyaudioandvideo.com/FAQ/Wiring/
Everything is a function of Resistance and Ohms law.
Current (I) = Voltage (E) divided by Resistance(R).
Voltage = Current Multiplied by Resistance.
Resistance = Voltage divides by Current.

I BLEW MY AUDIOBAHN AW1208T SUBWOOFER AND WANT TO KNOW IF IT CAN GET FIXED I THE THINK ITS JUST DUAL VOICE NOT SURE THOUGH


is the rubber surround blown out.. look at voice coil itself .. it could be repaired but maybe not worth it. can u actuate the speaker down and up.. if you can then the voice coil is fused.. and if u can and u hear or feel resistance then there is work to be done to the voice coil and spider. Could be costly.. if its just the rubber.. use silicone to re-seal it.. ol skool trick..

Stereo cutting off when volume is over 29


Twenty nine sounds pretty loud to me. A shorted voice coil in any one of your speakers will drop its resistance value so if the amplifier thinks its feeding a short circuit, will "protect" itself by shutting off. Check wiring carefully and each speaker at a little lower volume for sounds of distortion ie: shorted voice coils...

One is broken


Does it smell funny?Smell around the top of the magnet and see if it smells like burnt plastic.If it does then the voice coils are burnt.Push down in the center of the sub if it dont move at all or has a grind the the voice coils are burnt up.Look at the lead going from the wire hook ups to the speaker cone are the intact?If not thats your problem.

Broken LG audio tower speaker


do you have any more details? try to check for the speakers impedance or resistance using a multimeter. It should not go below 4 ohms or else it a 'short' or burnt voice coil.
