A blown speaker needs the windings replaced and re-coned. If you have deteriorating foam\cardboard type edges you an use clear silicone caulk from any home improvement store to fix small tears or detererioration. Tears and such on a large scale will require re-building.

I have a Kenwood kr-v8010 and all a suddenly one channel is only working just woundering if its a easy fix?


Could be a speaker wiring issue, defective speaker or possibly a speaker protection fuse inside the unit has blown.

1. Check speaker wires for proper connection.
2. Swap left and right speakers to see if the problem follows the speaker.
3. Check for internal speaker fuse that may have blown. PLEASE proceed with caution inside the unit. With the AC cord unplugged there are still high voltages resident inside...BE CAREFUL!!

REPAIR CONE TEAR IN 18"


If the tear is large, or the speaker cone is brittle because of age, you might be best off having the speaker completely reconed. There are companies that offer the service, or you can buy replacement cones and do it yourself.

For small tears (an inch or so long), you can glue a patch in place. I have used a piece of a paper coffee filter as a patch, and plain white Elmer's glue slightly thinned with water. Put the patch over the tear and use a small brush to spread a thin layer of glue over it. Give it a day to thoroughly dry and you should be set.

I have found this repair to be more effective on smaller speakers than on large woofers, though. The woofer cones are more mechanically active. But I patched a couple of 15-inch cones that had been punctured for a friend, and they are still playing after a year. So it can't hurt to try.

Speaker wires accidentally touched.


it sounds like the cone in the centre has blown. Use a 'spare speaker' not one from the system and try it, is should work, but if it was the centre speaker cable that shorted, should you get no sound from the spare it sounds like you have blown that part of the system which will require professional repair. Sorry

Sherwood Rx4050r and right speaker has crackling noises.


Ahh, that channel is blown. Its not 100% blown. This has happened to my freind before, and from my long knowlage in audio, the channel is blown, and is not fixable. If you REALLY are attached to it, you could probably bring it to a shop that fixes receivers, but best bet is to let it go

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

Amplifier keeping blowing fuse


This almost always indicates a blown speaker. If you have an ohm meter you can use that to test the impedance on your speakers. After disconnecting the speaker - touch the red lead to one connector and the black lead to the other. If it reads something other than 8ohms that speaker is blown.
If you don't have an ohm meter you can simply disconnect one speaker at a time and run that way until the fuse blows. If the fuse never blows then you've found the suspect speaker.
Sometimes blown speaker can hide by stealth. When cold everything is normal. When things start to heat up from use the failed circuit shorts and blows the fuse on your amp.

I just bought some pioneer ts-w305c subs from some guy in canada and one of them is sounds distorted< when barely playin it buzzes can u help me?


This could be either the speaker that is blown and making the noise or part of the amplifier being smoked causing distortion that sounds like a blown speaker. WIthout taking it apart and looking at waveforms on an oscilloscope, I can't tell you which is the problem. I'd ask a local shop to test it for you or if you can, exchange the actual speakers between the two. IF the problem stays with the bad box, the problem is with the amp, if the good speaker works OK in the "bad box" then the speaker is blown.

Keep us posted.

The spider on my 12' infinity Cappa has detached from the cone. i managed to slide it back up about where it goes,but im not sure what glue or what i should use to get it to stay there


Hi tiffleiffle

I use and recommend the specialist glue for speaker repairs that you can purchase online from here. Great for refixing spider wires,dust caps, foam surrounds. Also get just about any other speaker bit or spre part you could think of. Get your speaker bits from speakerbits
