Blown speaker

You can either take it to an authorized kicker dealer and they will send it in but you'd be better off to buy a new one. Kicker subs can be rebuilt just as any other sub no doubt but they change styles so frequently that the cost of rebuilding the old one probably isn't much cheaper than just buying a new one all together.

If the speaker no have movement so how to repair it...

Umm, does it produce sound? Or is it seized. Because if so the coil is blown. I doubt there are any re-cones for that subwoofer, so just buy a new one.

How do I repair a blown kicker subwoofer

the only way is too used some silicone glue, like what you use on bath room tiles (the clear stuff not the white concrete looking stuff) and apply to the damaged area, also you might have to replace the magnet too

I have a kicker l7 12 and it plays sound but its stuck the speaker stays down or stays pushed out it dont move freely is there a way to fix that or can i send it someplace?

kicker gives you a credit if u ship it back to them and upgrade. i have blown several old l7s the new ones are way beter. upgrade i did and am alot happier. the 02 l7s lasted a few months the 08s still going strong with a bigger box and its been 1 1/2 years and no problems. and yes your sub is blown......

I have 2 AW1206T's how do you know when their blown?

when a sub is blown it usually makes a scratcy or grinding noise if you push the sub in but if its blow it realy wont make much of a sound so it sounds like your voice coil is going out you will want to get this looked at quick or it can get expensive...i had one were it was cheaper to buy a new sub rather than fix it. it can also just be it disorting from too much power. i would never go over the power limit when dealing with 3000 watts, that can get realy expensive quick

Infinity Entra Sub 150 no sound or power

I had the same problem. When I opened it up, the fuse was blown, and it was a pain to find the fuse it needs (3 Amp, 250 V slow-blow fuse, 5x20 mm). Also, the 2 large electrolytics (big purple things near the amp) and one small capacitor were all blown. For 4 fuses, bought seperately from, and the 2 electrolytics and 1 capacitor, it cost about $20, plus almost 20 more in shipping, which still isnt bad considering the original price of the sub. However, the tricky part is that you have to know how to use a soldering iron to take out the old components and put in the new ones.

Kicker L7 10" 2 ohms 600 watts Alpine M650 2 ohms 600 watts JVC KDG230 head unit 4 gauge wires, 60 amp fuse I've had my install done at Best Buy, broke my sub in, and everythingwas fine for several...

Best Buy is your problem! Just kidding....kind of. One thing that I would check is to see if there is by some strange reason, an air leak in your box. If there is a decent leak that will substantially bring down the sound output. Otherwise, but you could potentially be getting bad hearing or just getting use to the loudness. I have had the same thing happen to me. I work professionally at an audio shop and am an SPL competitor. There was nothing wrong with my system it just that my ears have gotten use to the beating. Let me know what you think.

Speakers Popping loudly occasionally. Died for several days. Now working again but still making sounds.

The problem is a burned transistor inside the subwoofer. It depends of country's transistor manufacturer. It is supposed to be of a low quality. It's not important for the scope. Mine is knocked down for a year. I saved the electronic schematic diagram and the transistor specs, but lost. I confirmed the cause opening the subwoofer and examine the board. The indicated transistor surrounded area is burned indeed. If anyone find the article in web, please, post here.
