Check Amazon for replacement speaker foam kits. Just type in your speaker model followed by repair kit and some should pop up. I replaced my infinity foam a few weeks back with no problems.

These subwoofers are dual 4 ohm voicecoils.

Parallel wiring the 2 voicecoils would net a 2 ohm mono load.

Connect both + on the sub to the + on the amp.
Connect both - on the sub to the - on the amp.

Many professionals simply jumper the 2 + and 2- on the sub.... then run 1 set of wires from one of the terminals to the amplifier.

I have a mirage ps12 180 subwoofer and the convex ring around the cone (feels like foam) has a tear in it. Can I use the Elmer's glue and tissue paper procedure to fix it?


Hi,
Do not use any glues over the foam, it makes the foam get harder and probality of further damage leading speaker replacement. If you have a masking paper tape try to stick on torn area atleast to avoid further damage. But, all this attempts will give a loss on speaker's audio response. If you are not a big audio phile , you can manage doing it.

It is rip in to little piecies


It may not be worth the expense, but if the cone or surround are torn, they can be replaced by a speaker repair shop. I just had a pair of JL 10W6's re-edged (the foam surround around the cone deteriorated after 11 years), and the repair cost $100 for the pair, including parts.

I have a 13w7 and i am wondering if its possible to find the replacement foam around the top of the speaker. mine has a tear in it and i find it hard to believe that the speaker would be wasted because of...


Hello,
The foam is molded, you can not remold / repair
If it is a small tear you can repair with a bit of rubber cement. Eventuly it will fail and more will tear causing the sub to sound very bad

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

One sub not working


Try this....the speaker that is not working, gently work the cone up and down with you fingers. Be careful not to go right thru the cone. One hand underneath(near webbing) and one hand on top over the dust cover. If you hear any kind of scratching, or noise, or it's not "breathing" freely, then the voice coil of that speaker may have overheated, or the speaker has extended above and beyond its range of movement (called excursion). And may as well be blown/dead/fried..however you want to say. I hope this is not the case for you.
