Having the foam replaced ( by a used audio store for example) or replacing them yourself with a kit is best and cheaper. Replacing the speaker woofer itself is way more expensive if you want the same frequency reponse / quality of sound. Kits can be found easily on Ebay for 30 to 40$ max. replacing the woofer for same quality is over 200$

You'll be better off searching the Internet for a company that specializes in replacing the foam surrounds. Also, Parts Express stocks the surround kits, with instructions on how to replace them. Make sure you buy the correct diameter.. But it's probably easier to replace the entire speaker (not the full version with cabinet - just the speaker) - they're not that expensive.

sub woofers are very powerful bass , with incredible sounding technology. your problem might be with the woofer wall around the circle. open the box and take the woofer out.Check if there is any tare over the corners of the cloth. sometimes there might be a crazy noise because of a little opening in the cloth caused by small tare.. if so better change it with a new 1 and make sure that the new cloth has guaranty

The subwoofer has a rattle noise, how do i fix it?


Hi Larry. From your description, it sounds like the voice coil of the woofer is damaged due to possibly overdriving the speaker, mainly playing the system very loud for an extended period. I would replace the woofer element. The woofer should be held in place with 4 screws. When removed, there will be 2 wires on spade connecters. Disconnect these and replace with the new woofer. Hope this helps you out.

The rubber around one of my woofers is torn, anyway to repair that?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The only way to fix the torn rubber is to use a rubber tape usually equipped in the box that comes from the manufacturer. This special tape is also easily available in the market. All other adhesives will effect the working of the woofer.

Best of Luck,
Concerned.

Try filling the inside of the enclosure with insulation [roof insulation will work ] or a small pillow just to see if its the box or the driver rattling if its the driver you might have to secure it to the enclosure with screws or something ,

Is it old ? Is it making a rattling noise inside ? Completely lost its sound as in completely stopped sounding like a woofer and has higher frequencys coming out of it or as in no sound at all coming out of it ? I would say it's probably the crossover, perhaps a burnt resistor.

It is called "dry-rot" and it happens with age to paper cone speakers. I am not aware of any products made to help prevent this problem. But you can always replace the woofers with new one's or find a place that "recones" speakers and that would solve your problem for a long time. If you have rubber surround on the cones, it would take much longer to have any type of dry-rot problems. The "foam" type of surround on the cones is the worst for this problem. Most new woofers have polypropelyne surround of the cones and it would probably outlast you, so replacement with a good quality woofer really is a good option.
