Question about Rockford Fosgate Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I have an RFP-1208 that needs a recone kit, whats a good place to get a kit?

I melted the voice coil on my poor old RFP-1208 8, and would like to replace it as I liked how it sounded. I also wanted to do the replacement myself for a hobby project. What are some good resources for the enthusiast re-builder?

You say you have refilled the ink carts. Have you reset the chip on the cartridges? If not the chip will still report the printer that the carts are empty.

SOURCE: power supply replacment

Yes you can replaced the power supply but just make sure that unplug all power cord connected to ac power. When you removed the old power supply you must mark the connection with pencil so that when you install the new replacement power supply there is no mistake that cause you more trouble. Bring the old power supply when you buy because the size is important and also the wattages of power supply.

SOURCE: voice coil

I'm sorry to tell you but it sounds like you may have put to much bass at a decent power rating through them and there not designed to be replaced. The whole speaker needs to be replaced. Do not use it as you are running a risk of shorting the circuitry in your radio or amp if the impedence is off from the blown speakers and can burn it up also.

yes you can do it yourself no special tools are need just a couple good flathead screwdrivers and a lot of patiance be sure to put all the new washers and bearing back on in the same order the old ones came off putting the C clip on can be a little tricky but take you time and it can be done you may hvw to use the flat head to pry on the trans. shaft to get the clip in the groove then use a pair of chanell locks or pliers to snap it on if you get a new style bearing it may not look like the one you take off and not have all he washers just snap the small plastic pice onto the bearing put it on the the pulley the most of the time just the thin washe then the C clip the dust cover put belt back on the test machine

for the amount it'll cost for reconing alone its cheaper to just buy new ones. Reconing is really only used for professional PA line array style speakers because theyre a couple grand a piece. My advice is to just buy new ones

WHEN YOU PUSH DOWN EVENLY ON THE SPEAKER ITSELF...IT JUST SUDDENLY GIVES-WAY, WITH A KIND OF POP. DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE WOOFER IS BLOWN??? AND IF SO IS IT POSSIBLE TO REPAIR THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM? ...


The first thing to do is to check the resistance of the voice coil. Get an ohm meter & place one lead on each of the speaker terminals. If a value of 0 ohms results, or no reading at all, the voice coil is blown.

If you are pressing in, and suddenly gives way, my guess would be that the excursion of the speaker was too grand (common with car stereo, everyone loves bass) and the wires that wrap around the voice coil of the speaker were broken from the speaker inputs.

It is possible to recone the speaker, but by the time you track down a recone kit (highly unlikely that it is even available) you would be rather deep into the project.

Long story short:
check the speaker terminals with an ohm meter. If you get a resistance, they should work with free woofer movement. No resistance = blown woofer.

What is the best box for a rfp 3812 sub


Hello hondacd_750,

The RFP3812 is an older model of sub. It has an 8 ohm voice coil and according to the original specs, is rated to handle from 50-200 watts RMS.

The recommended sealed enclosure needs 1.25 CuFt of internal volume. Ported should have 2.0 CuFt.

The full specifications are here.

Hope this helps.

The orange circle around the speaker seems to be dry rotted. But the speaker works fine,except on heavy bass tones. M40 speakers


If these are Cerwin Vega speakers or any other for that matter thay need to be refoamed. See a local speaker repair shop about refoaming. Dont use them till you get them refoamed. It is like the speakers suspension and stops the driver from going to far in its excursion.

I have 15" subzero earthquake and i need to reconed


Usually the voice coil is bad on these subs...if your surround is rotted or torn - EXTENDING YOUR FINGERS PUSH DOWN GENTLY ON THE MIDDLE OF THE SUB AND RELEASE...Is it free? If not, forget the rebuild...If you need a kit for rebuilding the Earthquake...try Googling "Lesco Distibuting" in Orange City, FL and ask them who their closest Earthquake dealer is.
Good Luck

Can i put a new voice coil in the woofer of my JBL 4410?


It is possible to recone this speaker. Get a recone kit from JBL. It takes a little practice, but reconing can be done. I have done hundreds over the years. Make sure that you get the kit from JBL. If you feel that you don't want to take a chance on this there are reconing shops around the country.
