What would make a easy home repair fix for the outer foam on a woofer speaker


Repairing a speaker surround is not difficult. There are ebay sellers such as Loonytunes or Orange County Speaker who sell complete kits for maybe $20 or so for a pair of speakers. Get the kind with white glue--it's easier to work with. Be SURE to get the ones for YOUR SPECIFIC SPEAKERS!
Here's a store with lots of kits http://www.ebay.com/usr/thespeakerclinic?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
This seller does not use shims and new dust caps but has an excellent reputation: http://stores.ebay.com/looneytune2001
Forums such as AudioKarma are good resources. You can also find Youtube videos that show how to do it. Re-foaming is not hard but there is no "quick fix." You have to completely remove the old foam, clean the mounting surfaces, cut off the dust cap and shim the voice coil, install the new surround then install a new dust cap.
Or send the drivers to Millersound.

Subwoofer output distorted


Check to see if the speaker foam surrounds have disintegrated on your subwoofer. I bet it is. If so the speaker will sound like it is distorting or vibrating. Electrically it should be fine. My 2000 Avalon has this same problem with the 8" JBL subwoofer. It is a common problem and an easy fix. Go online to ebay or Amazon and purchase a speaker foam surround replacement kit (Ranges from $18.00 to $25). Youtube also has "How To" videos on how to repair this on your own. I just ordered my foam kit and awaiting the parts. Here is one for $23 but you can shop around for other deals.

The foam on my kfc w3000 is destroyed


There are kits available to repair speaker surrounds (aka foam). Here's a link to one of them:

Just a side note: repaired speakers will never sound the same. I repaired my subs a few years ago and was unhappy with the resultant sound so I purchased new ones. Personal experience.

The foam surround on my subs are cracked and torn. I need them repaired. Would it be more ideal to buy new subs or get these w7's repaired?


wow i won't throw them away or anything like that. You can always go down to your local JL Audio dealer to see how much to refoam the subs. Lot cheaper then buy new ones..... That's the way i would go.. Hope this was helpfull

I need a replacement sub due to torn foam. any


The cheapest option for you would be to have the foam surround replaced. Anyone that recones speakers can do this for you. This is a relatively simple repair for an experienced shop. Figure a cost in the $40 range for parts and labor.

I have a little rip on the subs ring


The little rip on the foam surround can be repaired easily with some pure silcone from a harware store. Make sure it's pure silicone, because the silicone mixtures may deteriorate the foam prematurely. Also, all you're really doing is plugging the hole that the rip makes so that air doesn't leak out and further damage the surround and also affect your sub's performance. You'll need to apply a thin to moderate coat of silicone to the rip, and make sure that some gets into the rip. Do NOT use globs or big lumps. You should apply some silicone to your finger, and carefully apply it to the area. Try not to get too much on the inside/backside of the rip. If you'd rather just get a replacement sub, you should be able to find the raw driver on eBay or at a local MTX dealer.
