Re: Sony XS-GT - Burrrrrrrr Noise

It's likely that the cone is damaged, which isn't repairable. However, another problem I've seen with Sony speakers comes when the tweeter pod becomes loose on its mount. To check this, look at the bottom of the speaker magnet. In the center of the back plate, there should be a small screw. It might be hiding under a sticker. Try tightening the screw, if possible.

How to fix a speaker

I assumes that the speaker of your car audio system has been burned out and posts this solution. Youcan buy the speaker cone paper along with it voice coil, ready to fit on, from any electonic spare part selling shops at your town. Never think that you can get the quality of sound as it was before. Because,there are so many calculations and fitting technique for making speakers. You can hear it. That is all. OK.

I have a subwoofer in my truck. 2 speakers in a box with an amp. One of the subs blew to a song that just came on. the volume was high. Sounds distorted. Any way to fix?

Sounds like the voice coil of that woofer overheated and melted while it was turned up too far. Now that area rubs on the magnet or pole piece internally and makes noise.

No you generally can't fix that except for a few high end woofer brands that have field replaceable voice coils that you can buy. Most subwoofers physically bottom out and sounds really bad before experiencing thermal damage like that. Sounding bad is a warning sign that it's being overloaded.

Note that woofers have 2 different types of overload conditions that can cause damage.
1. Over excursion from deep bass that moves the woofer cone too far and damages the suspension. This is clearly audible. Proper box design and user knowledge will prevent this.

2. Thermal limit. This is the published power rating that the voice coil can absorb without damage. Things can melt or fail entirely if this is exceeded.

Either of those issues can cause the noise you are hearing. Without a more detailed description of what happened or how it sounds before, during and after this is much detail as I can provide. But.. move the woofer some by hand, do it evenly pushing straight down evenly on both sides, not too far, go about half way through it's normal movement. If it clearly rubs and makes noise internally then the voice coil is damaged or if has some debris stuck in there. Most woofer are not serviceable.

There are many other factors that affect the longevity of the woofer, such as
  • Ambient temperature too high
  • Limited air flow has inadequate woofer cooling
  • UV exposure can make the surround material brittle
  • Proper enclosure design is needed to acoustically and physically supports the woofer to prevent bottoming out, particularly at the system resonant frequency.
  • Amplifier distortion can kill speakers even when rated far below the woofers max wattage.

2 sony XS-L102P5 subs, sound great with deep bass but cones chatter when I hit them real hard

There is a possibility that you may be overpowering or under-powering your speakers with the amp you are currently using or are playing notes below the specified range of "Hz" of the subwoofer causing the sub to sound distorted or as you would call it "chattering".
If the speakers range is 130hz-45hz and your playing notes at 30hz and dont have it tuned at the crossover either on the amp or the stereo to suit the subwoofer, the speaker will try and play the note regardless and will cause the cones to move beyond its range and may cause it to slap the magnet which can damage the subwoofer if consistently played that way. Please let me know if this solved your problem..

Bass speaker start up noise

Hello anne845,

It sounds like the installer wired the amp remote turn-on terminal to an "accessory" lead in your vehicle. Many stock radios do not have a dedicated amp turn-or lead and the alternative is to connect the amp to a switched power source (ignition or accessory). This means the amp turns on whenever you turn on the vehicle ignition, often resulting in a thumping from the subs. It is a perfectly satisfactory alternative, and will not damage either the amp or the sub. But it's irritating.

If the thumping is objectionable, have your installer wire a SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) toggle switch inline with the turn-on wire. The switch should be mounted so it is accessible by the driver, and whenever you turn on the radio, turn on the toggle switch.

Hope this helps.

Sony XS-V1342A Coaxial Car Speaker

You amp has a low pass filter turned on. There should be a switch to turn it off on the amp, otherwise you need a different amp. Be careful, 600 watts is WAY over the v1342a's rated power of 45 watts rms. If you turn it up too loud, that amp will easily blow your speakers.

One hits harder then other

Check the Polarity on the subs, you might have to invert one. Best way i know of to test is get a BASS CD -=download a bass test cd...legally of course=- and check for a test that will just flutter the speakers in and out and see if they both go in and out in the same way, if one is in and the other is out that could be your problem

Enclosure type

Sealed box and somewhat large if they are 12's I usually try to get 3 cubic feet overall internal dimensions and generally the inside dimensions will be 13" tall 32" wide and 13"-14" inches deep. with no divider and make sure the box is sealed. Personally I like to phase the speakers backwards. Gives the bass a little more rumble.
