JBL speaker's woofer occasionally cuts out - tweeter still works.


Your driver has a damaged voice coil, you can either find a speaker repairer to replace the voice coil or find a replacement driver to fit.

I have a pair of custom made bookshelf size speakers that I love. They are older speakers that use french made Focal 7" dual voice coil drivers. One mid-bass 7" driver and one tweeter per...


Hi,
Well, fortunately it was the woofer that blew out. The reason I say that is because woofer material should have little to do with accurate reproduction in that frequency range. Since I don't know the model number of the speaker that was discontinued, I can suggest to you what can be done to get a satisfactory result.
1st If you have the model number on the Bass Driver AND Focal has the specifications. Go ahead and match the characteristics using THEIR data. The most important characteristics, besides the size of the driver would be the efficiency of the driver in terms of dB out. And the resonance frequency.
If these two are matched up closely, you should be good to go.
Focal is known to make good drivers, however, if you have to go to another manufacturer and you match the specs as above, then you should still do well.
If you get a newer Driver from focal, some of the characteristics may have been improved upon over the older driver. Such as transient response. If that were improved upon, It wouldn't sound really different, but it would seem tighter in the bass range.
One other thing I suggest. If you do as I suggest above and are pleased with the result, Go ahead and replace the woofer in the other speaker.
One additional point worth mentioning. Many of the foam surround speakers used in the old days in audio have failed because the foam has literally rotted away, as may be the case with your woofer. I know, as I have re-foamed enough of them. If you find a satisfactory woofer with a butyl rubber surround, it will never rot.
That would be the best replacement, as it would be permanent (if you don't badly overdrive it)
I've been an audiophile for most of my life, and I love music. I REALLY feel for you. I think that you will come out this just fine.
I hope this helps you,
Best,
Mark

I bought a Behringer Eurolive B1220 Pro speaker with my PA system brand new and it sounded great at first. Now it sounds really muddy (the other 2 speakers I bought work fine) almost as if the horn has...


Bad news...you've blown the tweeters. Overdriving the mixer/amp creates distortion on the amplifier which heats up the speaker voice coils and eventually causes damage. Because of their small diameter voice coil windings the tweeters fail first (opens up like a fuse element does) followed by the woofer making a scraping sound (deformed voice coil) or not working as well. Warranty service because you blew out the tweeters? Don't get your hopes up.

1. PLEASE use enough power for the venue that you have. A high powered system will run all night at 10:00 (physical volume knob setting) than an underpowered system set for 2:00.

2. Get speakers off the ground and closer to your audience's ears. Audio from speakers on the floor must battle surfaces that actually absorb some of the sound....carpet, drapes, etc. And besides, legs can't hear that well.

Speaker was dropped - Tweeter Magnet came off - looks to have been glued on by manufacturer. What type of glue should I use? JBL EON 15 Thanks


Clean the mating surfaces very well, mark on the side of the magnet (arrow or dot) which surface of the magnet was glued (shouldn't make a bit of difference, I'm just a little anal) and then use any brand of quick setting 'super glue.' This glue will not only hold well but will also introduce the thinnest film between the magnet and 'keeper.' Too much space between mating surfaces can weaken the field and reduce the efficiency causing an imbalance in volume relative to the other tweeter. If anything else is loose, the tweeter is junk because any shift of the voice coil will cause the speaker to distort or rattle.
If you need to replace any speaker ever, replace both channels or have possibly lousy matching between channels.

My front speakers and tweeters are blown


I work at a Chrysler Jeep dealer and sell parts, and I'm sorry to tell you but this is a little problem we have run into many times with these vehicles. The factory speakers are **** and of course we have no wiring diagrams showing how to install aftermarket speakers without replacing the head unit with an aftermarket one. I just had to do this with my Mitsubishi Galant when I bought some Focal component speakers for my doors. I went with the Alpine radio and it seems very nice and I think it will do great for your speakers also. Hope this helped.

Warrenty


If it was fitted by an installer after July 1st 2007, then it's covered under warranty for 3 yrs, but if it was purchased then installed by you I'm afraid it's only one year :(

Having said that, if you are sure that the speaker blow due to faulty manufacture, Focal has a really good PR relationship with focal dealerships, and you could ask for the Focal representitive to inspect the midrange.

It's a bit of a long shot, however being Focal they like to keep the excellent reputation they have intact, and I've been able to replace a pair of Focal tweeters in the past (due to faulty manufacture) even thought they were almost 3 years old.

Unless things have changed somewhat over the last few years, they should still have a subjective approach to their warranty claims...

Well....here's hoping anyways!!!
