5 second fix is light enough and pliable enough to use on this type of repair. If nothing else. ??

I googled "speaker glue" you can get it at many sites including ebay and amazon. Or see what Home Depot has, it needs to stay flexable after it sets.

Hi, i have a beosound 2300 and ir was purchases second hand. both glass doors are detached from their metal fixing. any ideas on the best way to re-attach them so they form a strong bond and do not fall...

The best glue is the epoxy, there are various types, choose the type that will bond with the materials you are working on for maxium effect, and let it dry for a good 24 hours for desired results.

I need to get my alpine swx-1043d subwoofer vioce coils replaced were can i do this at

I would try alpine and/or do a web search for speaker repair or speaker rebuilding. In most cases vc replacement involves replacing the whole cone, vc, spyder, and maby the surround. Bassically all the moving parts in most speakers are glued toghther with high-temp epoxy glue.
If it's a type-x it's worth rebuilding. My guess is around $100
There are a few places out there that can hot-rod the rebuild with larger gauge vc wire and thicker lead in wire and other mods that will make sure this doesn't happen again. Do a thorough webb search. The more competant people out there do repairs and also custom build their own subs.

Speaker cone is rip

that sucks. Expensive sub. If its under warranty go that route.

If its not under warranty, you can repair it with epoxy.

Go to Lowe's and get a 2 part epoxy. Mix it and seal up the crack with the epoxy. Put it on thick because the sub is going to vibrate it like mad and it needs to hold up.

I poked a hole in my subs what would b the best thing to use to gurantee a permanent yet tuff seal

Cone or surround?

How big?

I did the exact same thing as-well when I worked audio installs. If you slipped with the drill and poked a hole through the rubber or foam surround then you want something flexible and strong. Silicone works great and it holds really well as long as the surface is clean and DRY when you apply the adhesive. Not to mention it comes in many different colours.

If you punched the cone then you want something similar to the cone material...light and stiff. Depending on the material I would use a small amount of polyurethane or epoxy.

hope this helps!

Seals around speakers are broekn and gone!

Hello kagato_morri,

While it's certainly possible to replace the surrounds, whether it's economical to do so is another question. For very high-end speakers, there are often "repair kits" available to replace spiders, cones, surrounds and for some, even the voice coils. But such parts are usually not available for your run-of-the-mill speakers.

If the speakers are otherwise in good condition, and you are willing to spend some time with them, you can use an adhesive foam to construct a new surround. A product called "shoe goo" makes a good permanent bond. It's a super strong rubber cement and will hold up under the stresses of the moving speaker cone.

Hope this helps.

I need picture or instruction on how to take apart a Alpine 12 inch type X subwoofer?

First pry off the rubber gasket. Then take a razor and cut out the cone, cut as close to the outer edge of the surround as you can. Then snip the tinsel leads connecting the cone to the spider. Then take your knife and cut out the spider. The cone and voice coil should now slide out. The rest of the speaker can be takin apart with a screwdriver and hammer.

Now hide from the owner of the speaker, he will probably want to hurt you.

Wire to cone connection

try using quick setting epoxy glue. just put pressure on the same spot while holding the epoxy with an old spoon lined with clear plastic wrap. after epoxy sets, remove the spoon and trim away the plastic film with a new razor blade. to be sure the connection is being made, turn sound on just so you can barely hear it before performing this so that the cone vibrations do not interfere with the setting epoxy.
