Taking apart a JBL N24

The circuit board in the back has become loose and rattles around whenever the speaker plays a song with bass. I've got the tweeter out and can see it moving and hear the same rattle, but I cant get the speaker out. I removed all eight screws, but it seems to be stuck. Any Ideas?

I removed the tweeter and found that I could stick two fingers through the hole and touch the back of the speaker. I was afraid that if I applied to much force I would break something, but after seeing a schematic of the speaker I realized there was nothing else attached except the wires. So, I used some muscle. It took a lot of pressure, but the speaker finally popped out. I was able to tighten the one screw that held down the circuit board in the back and re-assembled the speaker. Problem fixed.

They speakers, when they hit hard they make this odd... smacking sound.. Also on just like.. eminem songs and some rock songs that I listen to whenever the subs hit the vocals get distorted, but when I...


Well it sounds like you need a mono block amplifier for the subwoofers. Subwoofers are ment for low frequency. If you try to run regular audio through the subwoofer the sound will become distorted at a high volume. If you have a crossover on the amplifier try putting it on LP. Also do not exceed the RMX rateing on the subwoofer because if you do they will also distort. If you try adding the mono block on to it and it is still doing it you may also be running to much power to the subwoofers.

JRX125...there was a rattle/noise that indicated blown driver on midrange horn...replaced drivers, noise still occurs. discovered loose 1/4 in jack to tip of plug...tightened fit, but didn't trust...


The noise MIGHT be a resonance in the cabinet. The way to find out is to sweep a frequency upward to see if something rattles at certain frequencies... Don't be surprised to find several. Within the cabinet are the usual culprits: Wires rattling against the cabinet, loose debris, grilles and the logos on them, circuit boards with crossover hardware, cabinet wood that is not glued and rattles against itself. Things like bass port tubes can rattle.
Find an audio generator and sweep the cabinet from 50Hz to 10KHz and you will be surprised. Some speakers may have resonances as well. Expect things in your room to start rattling as well.
This is really the only way to find the problem. PLEASE wear hearing protectors at levels above 90Db.

I fixed a similar problem I was having. It requires a little work.

Take out the four screws from under the broken speaker. Carefully remove the cover, separating the speaker from the base. The two are wired together so don't pull them apart with force. Then remove the single screw, which is much larger the the previous four, and separate the speaker from the top cover.

If you chose you can remove the wires from the speaker, they just snap on, but its not required.

What I found is the speaker issue is not with the wire or the power, but the speaker it's self. On the back there is a big round metal piece. On my speaker that piece was pushed towards the front of the speaker. When I looked at the good speaker, that big piece was all the way back. So I simply pulled it back and presto, instant fix!

I hope this works for you.

The l/s speaker has a terrible rattle when sound has a little bass..either something is loose or driver is making the noise.Can you remove the grille without taking the tv off the wall?


Hi, Sorry no you have to take the back off. And there are several screws. You can buy replacement speakers off E-bay. For about $10-20. Cheeper than part stores like Shop Jimmy or Encompass. Also note that the speakers in the tv are small, 2.75" in most of the Vizio sets. The 32" have 2" speakers.
So not realy made for bass,or to play loud.

Bass sound coming out whenever i move the right speaker


seems like one of the wires is loose either inside the speaker or in the cable leading to it.
best chance is to open up the right speaker ( involvs damage to the plastic , since atp3 speakers are glued and practically unopenable with out breaking)
and then trying to play with the wires `till you find the sourse of the problem.
as soon as you know where the probles is , i`m sure its gonna be easy to fix, again , the hard part is to take this speaker apart.
good luck

Bass rattling on Bose Companion 2


My Companion 2 speakers were having the same problem with the rattling on certain frequencies and I am happy to say that Steve Allison was correct in my case. The speakers don't handle surround settings very well so if you're running your speakers through a source that had that setting turned on the easiest way to stop the rattling is to just turn the surround setting off. The speakers weren't really made to handle that kind of a signal.

Intermittent Problem


One thing that comes to mind is you said the heatsink had come loose. if this was the case and it was the heatsink for the output transistors. Then this seems to be the best place to look for a broken solder joint. When either the unit heats up or vibration. One of the legs to one of the transisters opens this would case a half wave cycle drop. Do not know if I would consider the sound it would make as static. But it would become very garbled. get a bright light a slowly look over the circuit for broken solder joints use a magnifier if you have one. also wiggle the wires and tap on the circuit with something non-conductive like wood or plactic see if you can make this cause the condition. This may help narrow your search. Check as well on the top of the circuit look close at the transistor leads, because flexing back and forth can case them to break if flexed in the right place.
