Do a google on "speaker reconing" - you will find some services that can do this as well as companies that sell kits for you to do this.

I have not done this myself, but would recommend a service - unless you are quite gifted with your hands using tools.

SOURCE: I have found a Oz Audio Vector Power 15 but

On the amplifier side, I will need the wattage, and frequency of the speaker to tell you what amp you will need.

Subwoofers differ in only one way. You get an "Open Air" and a "Closed air" subwoofer, That being said, you'll have to check on your magnet which one you have to make the boxes for that sub. If it is an "Open air" Subwoofer, you should see a "wire mesh" or "grid" in the centre, at the back of the magnet. If it is a "Closed air", the magnet will be solid with no hole whatsoever.

If it is a "Open air" sub, your boxes should be sealed with silicone, and no ports are to be cut in your box.

With "Closed air" subs, you should have 2 ports below your sub and the port sizes should be around 50mm in diameter. You should start with a 100mm long piece in the one box and add 50mm increments to "tune" the port up to 250mm, depending on the frequency of bass you require.

On a 15 inch subwoofer ranging between 80Hz and 120Hz, the box size required should be around 27 liters, meaning that you will end up with a box of 16 inches high, x 16 inches wide, x 16 inches deep. Or 320mm high, x 320mm wide, x 320mm deep.
Enjoy!

How do i fix a frozen 12 inch power acoustik FUBAR-12W sub


You have a case of a blown sub. You will need a recone kit. You ca send it in to a company like fix my speaker or google recone kits for Power Acoustik FUBAR. May be cheaper just to get another sub.

I have 6 Rockford fosgate hx2 power subwoofers from when I was sponsored by them and they have all finally blown I'm trying to find parts for them voice coils spyders recone kits ect or a place that...


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

I have a 12 inch lanzer max st subwoofer, and im pretty sure its blown judging from the crunchy sound it gives. any way i could fix it, like buy a new spring for it and install it myself or something like...


Lanzar Do not make a recone kit for this subwoofer. some competition audio manufacturers do, but the baskets themselves are very expensive. For a brand like Lanzar where you can pick up a new one from $60 US it would not make sense. Im sure if you took it to a speaker repairer they could do it for you but for what it would cost you, you would be able to buy 3-4 new subs.
I hope i have helped you and please dont forget to rate me.

Have 2 blown square hifonics 12inch speakers. Was playing goos and then just stopped. Took to radio shop and they said I have 2 blown sub-woofers. How can i get them fixed.


They probably will have to be reconed. Slight chance the flex leads have broken in which they MIGHT be repairable. If this occurred during playing very loud, you probably burned up the voice coils.

Have them reconed and then use an amplifier that maxes out at MUCH less power to drive them. Also fuse the speakers to protect them.

I have new 10 inch subwoofers and they sound great but there is a rattling problem and i am not sure how to fix it....


try pulling the speaker out of the box and inspect the wire connection behind it. If that is good then look at the cone to see if it is seperated from the magnet. If so you can get a recone kit from any local audio store

Bose 901 Series IV BLOWN?


Yes, if you hear any sort of crackling sound, that means it has blown. Given the cost of these units, I would suggest repair. I would also suggest contacting Bose, as many of their products have a lifetime warranty, so you might be in luck. Although, blowing your speakers because you made your speakers go louder than they were supposed to, is no covered in the warranty.

You can approach the repair in 2 ways..
1) Send in to Bose for repair - suggested
2) Take it to a service center, and see if they will be able to recone the speakers or replace. Most service centers are familiar with the 901 series, so you should be ok. If they have no idea what your talking about, stay away.

But yes, they are worth fixing.
