Those cone covers are important because they distribute the audio of the driver over a wider range. The defect will not cause further troubles nor will it get worse. Most people are capable of repairing them yourself. If you lost the old cone a replacement is necessary. You will need preferably the part number off the back of the speaker to get a replacement. Carefully measuring the diameter of the cone according to where the old glue shows it was attached will also get you the part. Just use Elmer's White glue to reattach. It get's tacky after a few minutes and the cone should sit there and dry for a few hours after replacement. Check for speaker repair parts online. You will find bunches of suppliers.
Attaching speakers to an under-powered amp won't DRAW too much power. And we're not talking about an amp here, we're talking about a PC which can
only provide enough juice for headphones. All it provides is Line Level (millivolts) output for an external amp to process.
The speakers are NOT self amplified. If they were they'd have batteries or wall power cords and RCA style input connectors.
What you will need is a replacement for the dead Sanyo electronics that can handle 4-ohm speaker loads. Then you can draw the output of your soundcard into IT with RCA cables..
hello, first off you bought a sub designed for musicians not for use at home. tons of issues pop up how many ohms is the driver does it have a crossover what frequency is is tuned for etc...? too many issues .
if you are determined to make it work
first thing you will need a MONO amplifier or a stereo amp that can be BRIDGED to mono
then you will probably have to replace the phone jacks with speaker terminals they are available at radio shack or most car stereo installation shops.
Personally I would not mess with it chalk it up to a "life lesson" and purchase a sub with an onboard amplifier that is designed to connect to a home receiver.
Depends what your hooking it up to, if its a home stereo or something with RCAs you will have to get an adapter the speakers only take 1/4" (like a e. guitar cord) or XLR (microphone cables) as inputs. You can get RCA to 1/4" adapter at radio shack for like $6.00 http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103851&cp=&sr=1&kw=rca+to+1%2F4&origkw=rca+to+1%2F4&parentPage=search Hook the rca part to your home stereo then the 1/4" into the speaker, plug it in and turn it on.
