I know the problem is a bad speaker it's warped, I was wanting to find a contact to purchase a new speaker. Not the whole housing but the speaker itself.

Kicker solo baric l7 12" has distortion at low volume. What could cause this?


It sounds like the cone is distorted. If it's a paper cone, it may have gotten wet. If it's a poly cone, it may have been exposed to too much heat (sunlight?).

Also check the wiring; anything loose may make a rattling sound.

Last, the problem may not be in the speaker at all - it may be a problem with the amp.

How can replace the speaker the bass sound is broken


Dear Rob,
Really Thankful for the detailed description for the Speaker Repair.
It really helped me a lot. I have a unusual situation here with me. I have dissected the whole console and found the outer band of the speaker has just come off....have attached photos to make it clear. does the outer speaker cone will make a difference or i will have to replace the speakers itself.....when i checked pressing the speaker down and played the distortion had gone....but while playing without holding the distortion would come back....Hope you can help me in this situation....Thanks in Advance..... 714812a0-935e-4f95-922e-50c6ba281b9c.jpg 36e62701-6370-491a-a317-a11c69cc9525.jpg

It is rip in to little piecies


It may not be worth the expense, but if the cone or surround are torn, they can be replaced by a speaker repair shop. I just had a pair of JL 10W6's re-edged (the foam surround around the cone deteriorated after 11 years), and the repair cost $100 for the pair, including parts.

Hercules XPS 210 sub problem. distorted sound


I think you've just answered your own question. It sounds as if you've coned the sub woofer. Meaning you've fractured the bond between the edge of the speaker body with the speaker cone. Or overheated the voice coil and it's distorted and not getting free movement. Excuse the Pun but it "sounds" like you need a new speaker as a replacement. If it's a particularly expensive speaker it can be reconed. A check of the Net for someone close to you will find a company who recones them. If it's a cheaper one then a replacement would be in order.

My basslink worked great, son blew fuse, replaced, now sounds lik


If the speaker has been overdriven, it may have damaged the cone surround or damaged the speaker coil, causing it to 'rub' inside the magnet. To check for rubbing, you need to move the speaker cone backwards and forwards by hand and listen where the speaker coil/cone goes into the magnet. It should be silent if ok. If you can heara rubbing or grating noise, then the speaker is damaged. If the output driver on the amp is damaged it can give a distorted sound, which could easily happen if it tries to provide too much current.

Hum in TEAC EX-M3 radio


(1) Is the hum out of both speakers?? (2) Is the sound distorted out of any of the speakers?? If the answer is yes to 1 and no to 2 then it sounds like one of the smoothing blocks or capacitors have gone down and requires replacement. If no to 1 then you probably have blown the output chip or taken one side of it out, check all connections to the speakers, try not to use tape joints which are unreliable. If you do have to piece the cable, solder the connections. Then replace the chip, Ian

Is there anyway to fix a blown Bose Speaker (201)?


The only 2 solutions are: 1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful). Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.
