Question about Beltronics Vector 995 Radar Detector
Does anyone have any idea what the specs of the replacement speaker should be? How many Ohms/watts? I opened up the detector and it is a small plastic-like speaker labeled "AS2832-LW56 PUI China". I'd rather find the right type of speaker for about $1.00 instead of paying Beltronics $38.00 to ship me the same crappy speaker that broke in the first place.
The speaker is a 28mm diameter 32 Ohm speaker. Bel/Escort now use a newer custom PUI manufactured "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of the speaker blowing out due to high temperatures. Contact Bel/Escort using their online chat feature on their web sites. Likely they will send you a replacement speaker for a cheap price which you can solder in yourself (assuming that your RD is out of warranty).

If it helps I called Belltronics at 866-468-0322 and asked how to get a new speaker. The lady asked if I was handy enough to fix it myself and I told her yes. She then sent me one for free.
