I don't know of a place in Nashville, but what kind of speaker is it? It makes a difference. There are some places up here in Massachusetts. Post the make of the speaker and I'll try to locate something closer to you.

While reconing is not a really difficult task, it takes some practice, instruction and tools to do it properly. 15" speakers are tricky to keep aligned properly if you don't have the proper tools (shims, etc.)

Please update this with the make.

Thanks,

Dan

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.

I have a pair of Cerwin Vega LS 15-series home speakers. One of the subs stopped working but still has sound coming out of the voice coil. Do i need to replace the sub?


You need to check the connections on the cross over board and also Ohm out the speaker to see if the voice coil is open. If you cannot get the same woofer, then you should replace them in pair, try http://www.parts-express.com//index.cfm?

I have a set of cerwin vega AT15's my dog decided to put his paw through the one surround and puntured the paper cone I need total 15" woofer replacements or repair. or I need replacements I can buy and...


Ebay sell Cerwin Vega Surround (rubber bit) replacements. If he has ripped the cone too, appart from replacing his back legs with wheels (joke!), contact Cerwin Vega directly and they will send you out a new "driver". These are easily fitted at home by any one with a screwdriver

My woofer makes popping noise


Depending on your configuration, it could be a loose/**** cable, or possibly digital clipping. If you're playing music (especially MP3s that weren't professionally transcoded) from your computer or player, try first turning down the volume a little from the computer SOFTWARE (in iTunes or WinAmp or whatever), or your iPod, Zune or whatever. If that solves, it, your MP3s were transcoded too hot, which is bummer because using the volume in software is never as nice as in analog.
If that doesn't solve, it, try checking/replacing your speaker wires.
These are the easy fixes. If they don't work you may have a more serious problem, like dust in the speaker or amp electronics, trouble with your crossover, or God knows.
Good luck. Poppy woofers ****.

I am running two 15 spl soundstream woofers with a soundstream 500sx amp how do I bridge them to get maximum performance


the 15 spl woofers are dual voice coil, i believe 2 ohms per voice coil.

the 500sx amp is rated 4 ohms bridged at 500 watts, it is capible of dropping to 2 ohms sterao, but no lower than 4 ohms bridged. to get maximum performance, you cannot use both voice coils of both speakers, you can only use one speaker, or both speakers, while only using one voice coil from each.

there is no point of bridging them, you can achieve maximum performance by attaching one voice coil from each speaker to each channel of the amp, while leaving one voice coil from each speaker unconnected. you could also use just one speaker, attaching one vioce coil to one channel, and the other vioce coil to the other channel. then, i would suggest getting a second, identical amp to run the second speaker.

if you are persistent on bridging to mono, then you can only use 2 voice coils (both from one speaker, or one from each speaker) and you must run the voice coils in series, that is, from the amp positive to the 1st vioce coil positive, then run a jumper wire form the 1st vioce coil negative to the 2nd vioce coil positive, then, finally, run the 2nd vioce coil negative back to the negative of the amp.

this is all assumming that each voice coil is 2 ohms and each vioce coil has seperate inputs, meaning that each speaker has 2 pairs of speaker terminals.

THE WOOFER RATTLES REALLY BAD WHEN ANY MUSIC OR VOCAL IS RUN THROUGH IT, WE HAD THIS PROBLEM A FEW YEARS AGO AND REPLACED THE WOOFERS IN THE FRONT OF HOUSE MAIN PA SYSTEM, THE VOICE COIL WAS BAD.


you can have the woofer reconed, refoamed or replaced. if the voice coil is bad then you can only refoam or replace. if the problem is that the poly foam surround has dry rotted, then it can be refoamed or you can purchase a DIY refoam kit. there are also many replacement woofer options.

Woofer,s outer ring is ripped.


To fix this problem, you will need to contact Velodyne.
They may be able to replace the surround or recone this driver.

Because this system has the "servo" control, you need to have the accelerometer conected to the amplifier. With out it, the amplifier will not operate.

Can i put a new voice coil in the woofer of my JBL 4410?


It is possible to recone this speaker. Get a recone kit from JBL. It takes a little practice, but reconing can be done. I have done hundreds over the years. Make sure that you get the kit from JBL. If you feel that you don't want to take a chance on this there are reconing shops around the country.
