SOURCE: i think voice coil is

The voice coil can be properly checked with a voltmeter. Disconnect the speaker and use the OHM setting on the meter to check to see if it measures around 4 ohms. Is this speaker a subwoofer? Some subwoofers will be rated at 2 ohms. Either way, any speaker should have a sticker or stamp on it telling what the impedence is. Typically, most speakers will be either a 2ohm or 4ohm measurement. If the coil is bad, you will either get no reading or one that is much higher than the 2ohm or 4ohm. Hope this information is helpful.

My jbl eon 15 g2 smell like burnt and everything works but the big speaker

The voice coil in the big speaker could have been damaged if driven to loud. See if the burnt smell is strongest near the center of the big speaker. If the voice coil is fried, you may be able to still find a replacement as there is a part number for the voice coil (V/C Assy, EON-G2220-27005-00) and the cone (EONG2
Cone Repl. C2REON15P-2)

My speaker isn't working properly.

Hello sir, hi there, usually speakers are replaceable if its not working, if the value of your speakers are quite high, you may need to rewind the voice coil, or find a replacement voice coil for it, much better you need to replace the entire unit. Here are some test to confirm if your speakers are busted. 1. get a double A battery. 2. connect the negative terminal to the negative of the battery using a black wire. 3. connect the positive terminal of the speaker to the positive of the battery intermittently with a red wire. 4. you should hear clicks. no clicks it's busted. replace the driver.
test for voice coil free flow. press gently the cone, and feel the free movement, if you feel friction or scratches, replace the driver.

My subwoofer keeps making a clunking noise...How do I correct this problem?

The clunking noise could be the voice coil maxing out hitting its stop or a warped voice coil. How much power is going to the subwoofer. If it only happens when the high volume setting it and not at medium volume the subwoofer may not be able to handle the power. With your hand gently push the speaker cone back and release the cone so it can return to its rest state several times. Do you hear a scratching sound or feel any resistance? If you do your voice coil is damaged if not from physical means it could be from the voice coil overheating. If it is OK shake and rap on the subwoofer box and try to identify any loose parts which could be making noise.

My mtx 10' sub is jammed, is there anyway i can fix it by myself without costing a fortune, i believe its a burnt coil

The voice coil has overheated. If you feel confident, you might be able to purchase a re-cone kit and do it yourself. But it's an art, so to speak. Contact the manufacturer, or a speaker re-coning service.

It sounds like one of the voice coils is loose how do i get the plastic piece that connects to the spider out thanks

The "plastic piece" doesn't give any of us much to go on... there are many parts connected to the spider. Examples are the cone edge flexure and the centering flexure near the voice coil.

Most f these are held with adhesive.

If a voice coil is loose, it is undoubtedly damaged beyond repair. They rub the pole pieces and wear insulation off and short out blowing the amplifier.

Best to take it for re-coning or read up how to do it. Then you need to get a kit of the materials. There are adhesives, solvents, and new voice coil, centering flexure piece and usually the cover.

I think that one reason for a speaker to rub is due to over heating of the voice coil. This happens when power is applied to the speaker that is greater than the speaker is capable of handling. A second cause could be that the suspension and or cone is damaged or degraded causing the coil to be tilted or off center. In either case nothing short of rebuilding the speaker can be done to repair the speaker. Rebuilding would involve removing the cone and voice coil and replacing with new items. If you were talented you might be able to repair the existing cone or voice coil but the results could be iffy.

Voice coils

Hello. I do speaker reconing and amp rebuilds for a living and the L7's often suffer from tinsel leed wire breakage which can cause "poping" and "screaching" noises in the sub in various cone positions. You need to remove the sub and push straight down on the cone repeatly and determine if you can feel or hear crunching noises to make sure the voice coil and/or spider are not damaged. A faulty leed wire can usually be identified by a dark spot or obvious breakage. All of the L5 and L7 models can be successfully repaired as long as they are the older models that have a center cap in the cone. The newer capless models will have to have an upper brace cap glued to all of the cone's fingers and will have a rather ugly appearance. Leed wire overhauls usually run around $30.00 for the older models. Voice coil and spider overhauls run around $90.00.
