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

I have AIWA NSX-RV85. The sub-woofer surround tore leaving just the cone. When I play, The woofer just makes a rattling sound coming out of vibrating cone.Any advise on how to fix my speakers.Thanks


Refit the rubber, you can find itbon eBay, its called reconing actually in this case the cone is the inlybpart wich you dont want to replace... The rattling is beingproducer due to the fact the rubber normally holds the cone ibto positionering over the coils. This rattling is not good can defect your cone. So dont play it roll you got a new rubber fitted!

I need to wire 3 woofers but 2 are dual voice coil and one is single voice coil


sure, if you wish to wire them all together, wire the first dual voice coil subs first voice coil negative to 2nd voice coil positive, second voice coil negative to single voice coil sub positive, and single voice coil negative to 2nd dual voice coil subs 1st voice coil positve (again with the second dual voice coil sub, run the first voice coil negative to the 2nd voice coil positve) your speaker leads will be attatched to first dual voice coils 1st voice coil positive, and 2nd dual voice coils 2nd voice coil negative)

I have a pair of Wharfdale laser 40 speakers that each need the woofer and tweeter cones replaced. How much will this cost, is it worth it?


to recone these speakers would not be cost effective. I suggest you buy replacement speakers. a good source of high quality (even higher than the ones in your unit) is www.martinsoundproducts.com they sell many different kinds and sizes of speakers. If you want to go an easier route you could buy replacement speakers from Best Buy or Radio Shack, but they would not be of the highest quality. one last place to buy speakers is from a high end music store that caters to professional musicians and maybe has a repair dept, (where you could order the speakers you need) good luck, the Waferdale speakers are great, too bad you blew them out.

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.

Bass speaker not working. Sub woofer connection not producing current to allow Bass speaker to work.Would like to try to connect to 6 channel set up but not sure how that's done since I have the speakers...


make sure speaker voice coil are still good...continuity checks will confirm this....as far as 6 channel hook up, you need to know what the lowest impedance allowed is from your system and then wire up your speakers in series /parallel to come up with a final impedance that will very closely match the systems minimum output impedance

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.
