I lose pressure in the brake peddle after i stop.

The push rod rubber ( oil seal ) on your brake cylinder was worn out or tear or melt or with small hole,located at the back of the hydro back. In your wheel there are rubber (oil seal) inside the piston that usually worn out long term use. Once you replace the rubber you need 2 person to adjust the pressure. First engine Start, 1 is in the Driver seat pump the brake and then the other 1 releasing the air in the fitting.

My 12 L7 the rubber came off the cone and doesnt hit as hard what kind of glue would fix my problem

Hi, Jr.

I'm sorry, but glue will not fix this problem. When the rubber or foam edge of a speaker breaks down or deteriorates because of age, it becomes almost like dust, which is why it cracks and then breaks apart and falls away from the speaker. The only way to fix it (besides replacing the speaker) is to replace the edge, or "surround". At this link,, you will find a kit that you can buy to repair your speaker for about $30. The standard 12" repair kit will work if you have an 'angle cone edge attach' type speaker (see the bottom of the page for a picture of what this means). This page,, will show you step by step how to use the kit to repair your speaker.

Good luck, and please remember to rate my help.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

I have a 13w7 and i am wondering if its possible to find the replacement foam around the top of the speaker. mine has a tear in it and i find it hard to believe that the speaker would be wasted because of...

The foam is molded, you can not remold / repair
If it is a small tear you can repair with a bit of rubber cement. Eventuly it will fail and more will tear causing the sub to sound very bad

Contact MMats Pro Audio at 561-842-0600. They can re-cone it for you, or sell you the re-cone kit. If that does not work for you, contact MWA Speaker Parts in Tuscon - 520-647-7193. They can sell you a re-cone kit, or they can direct you to a speaker repair center near you. A third option would be to contact Sundown Audio in Troutman, NC. They may be able to re-cone it for you.

Fixing the middle piece of the sub

Hello stoge52,

Many people do their own speaker repairs and it is many times perfectly satisfactory. The folks who do a lot of it are musicians who seem to bang their equipment around quite frequently.

The problem with your JL sounds like the dust cover and not the cone itself, so you are lucky in that respect. Repairing the cone is more involved and it's rather tricky to duplicate the thickness, rigidity, and original elasticity of the cone. It's usually best to simply replace the cone, a process called "reconing". But gluing the dust cover is perfectly acceptable and not much of a job at all. Don't try super glue. It won't work. I'm not sure about rubber cement, though, but I've never heard of anyone using it. Many pros use silicone sealant. Either black or clear looks best for speaker repair. A somewhat better product is a tennis shoe repair product called "Shoe Goo". It's a little lighter and remains more pliable than silicone sealant, making it a better choice for lighter speakers. You can usually find "Shoe Goo" at larger sporting goods stores. If you want to use something that is made especially for gluing speakers, here's a link to a product called "Prosound Loudspeaker Recone Adhesive" and is advertised as the same black adhesive as that used by many major speaker manufacturers. It's $19.99 for 8 fl oz, more expensive than silicone sealant. Is it better? I don't know. But if it were MY JL, I'd probably spring for it.

You may want to gently remove the dust cover entirely from the speaker and make sure that there are not any tears in the cone itself. If there are, you should repair them first.

Also, when you reglue the dust cover, wait a MINIMUM of 24 hours for the glue/sealant to set up and cure properly. If you start the sub thumping before the glue has fully cured, you'll have the same problem again. One other thing, use just enough glue/sealant to do the job. Don't think that more is better. A consistent thin layer on the entire surfaces being joined is best. A gob here and there will not hold for very long.

The alternative is to send it out for repair. And since it is a JL, I would not send it anywhere but JL. Be advised that is not going to be cheap. And it's going to be time consuming. Probably at least 25-50% of the cost of a new sub and probably a minimum of 3-4 weeks, sometimes longer. And don't forget, you'll pay shipping both ways.

Hope this helps.

L7 sub

There are places online that do speaker repair. This is one example of a place that does it. You might try calling around to your local stereo shops and ask if they repair or know anyone that does. Keep in mind, not all speakers are repairable and if they are, there's a good chance the repair will cost more than a new speaker (a new 10" L7 runs about $150 online).
