SOURCE: Kef Q Series iQ1 problem

You may have broken the cross over, which is fixable by an service agent, or you may have damaged the voice coil in the mid driver. you can check this by sofly pushing the main driver in, making sure that you done push the cone, if there is a lot of resistance then you have damaged the voice coil, and you will need to replace the driver.

SOURCE: Busted cone (i think)

First try swapping the leads on your source, powering the left speaker with the right channel, and the right speaker with the left, if the problem follows, then the issue is with your source, and not the speaker.
If the cone is torn, then try to patch it, using some basic glue and several layers of tissue paper. White Glue, embed tissue paper in the glue, more glue,embed tissue paper in the glue, do this several times building up several layers. Guessing this is a standard paper cone...
Now if you are still having the issue, could be that the woofer is damaged. Look for a replacement.

SOURCE: i have a pair of TDL studio 10 speakers, both bass

I'm guessing that you have Bi-wireable binding posts on the back and your jumper straps are not installed. You'll be able to tell if they are biwireable if there are 4 sets of speaker connections vs the standard two. When you are only using one set of speaker wires you need to have metal straps installed between the upper and lower pair of connections so that all of the drivers are getting signal.

SOURCE: i Have a buzzing mordaunt short avant 916i cone

Hiya, its the cone. The former is touching the magnet inside. Realignment is really tricky and dont know many people who can do that so you may either have to live with it or see if someone can recone it in your area.

Best of luck

SOURCE: The spongy rubber around the speaker cone has come

The foam surrounds degrade with the years. No bugs, just old age. If the speakers are worth it, you can have them repaired at better audio stores.

REPAIR CONE TEAR IN 18"


If the tear is large, or the speaker cone is brittle because of age, you might be best off having the speaker completely reconed. There are companies that offer the service, or you can buy replacement cones and do it yourself.

For small tears (an inch or so long), you can glue a patch in place. I have used a piece of a paper coffee filter as a patch, and plain white Elmer's glue slightly thinned with water. Put the patch over the tear and use a small brush to spread a thin layer of glue over it. Give it a day to thoroughly dry and you should be set.

I have found this repair to be more effective on smaller speakers than on large woofers, though. The woofer cones are more mechanically active. But I patched a couple of 15-inch cones that had been punctured for a friend, and they are still playing after a year. So it can't hurt to try.

I have a pair of pioneer ts A-6987 connected through an amplifier and pioneer cd player..i noticed today that the left speaker's cone woofer stopped working whereas the its producing voice but if very low...


double check the ratings on the speakers and amp. speakers that size don't usually require an amp. compare the wattage and resistance numbers, if you haven't fried an amp, you may have blown a speaker. another possibility is a short in the channel. check wiring connections.

I have a 15'' Yamaha MSR800W powered sub speaker with a torn cone. Can I replace this myself or should I send back to be repaired?


If you have a warranty on it send it back, if you don't you can do several things. It depends on how bad the tear is. If its a small less than 2 in or so tear, a beed of hot melt glue on both sides of the cone is a sturdy but not permanent fix. If its a large tear you'll need a new cone. I looked a bit online for recone kits for that model but i couldn't find anything. So my advice would be to find a speaker service in your area, or send it back to yamaha for repair. If you want you can do a more thourough search for a recone kit, you might find something... hope you get it workin.

Radio sound with a noise


Please take out the speaker and inspect it for a torn cone. At times, humidity, amp power or just wear and tear ruins the cone. Then you can replace the speaker or re surface the old speaker with a new cone. That will save you some bucks but may not be as well as buying another speaker. Also please use the same model and Ohms of it. 8 or 16 ohms

What kinda glue do you use on a blown speaker?


A blown speaker needs the windings replaced and re-coned. If you have deteriorating foam\cardboard type edges you an use clear silicone caulk from any home improvement store to fix small tears or detererioration. Tears and such on a large scale will require re-building.
