Wow everyones google must be broken (i'm just joking). I found this speaker, it looks like the company is located in arizona. I also contacted cobra and left a message. I'll probably go with whatever is cheaper, it will probably be this one.

Looks like all you have to do is desolder the wires and resolder them on the new speaker then plug it in.

I actually had 2 talking radar detectors go bad (esd-9860, esd-9870) so i took them apart, 9870 had a really small zener diode come lose (probably from leaving it in the sun all these years) and the other one has a completely blown speaker (doesn't make a circuit). The good speaker tested 7.7 ohms with my digital meter.

Figured i'd help you guys out

A good place to start is Mouser Electronics:

They do not have a minimum order dollar limit and have an extensive parts inventory.

You will need to remove the old one and get the wattage, ohmage (4ω, 8ω, or 16ω). Then you will need the physical dimensions to make sure the replacement speaker will fit into the space provided. The replacement speaker does not have to be brand specific, but it must be the same physical size and have the same electrical characteristics.

There are other places that may have the speaker, but most have order minimum dollar limits of $25 and up per order. In case you are interested: MCM In One Company, Digi-Key, Newark In One Company to mention a few I have dealt with in the past.

Good luck on your quest.

''I have a xrs 9730 radar detector and the speaker quit working''

Most likely the speaker simply blew due to excessive heat. This is a fairly common problem with all makes and models of radar detectors. Contact Cobra. They should either be able to send you a replacement speaker which you can install yourself, or they should issue you a RMA so that you can send in your Cobra for service.

I need a manual for a cobra xrs 757 for a radar detector any idea where i can find one

The Cobra XRS-757 is the same as the Cobra XRS-9330. The difference in model number is due to the 757 being sold at Wal-Mart stores.

Radar detector speaker busted

The best way is to call up cobra or ask them a question through their site.

This will link you to the ask page. Just ask if they will sell you a replacement speaker for the radar detector xrs 747. I just ordered one for a friend and it was $4.32 and $2.50 for shipping.
