Question about Orion Cobalt 73CX Car Speaker
Can i purchase a new voice coil
Hello. I recone speakers and your speaker should be fixable. As allready mentioned, it may be cheaper to find a mate on ebay all though it can be hit and miss. The coil's demensions can vary greatly as there are thousands of different parts produced over the years. There is expensive tooling involved in the successful construction of a voice coil as tolerances have to be within a few thousands of an inch. I have wound coils before and now try to purchase due to time restraints. I have found Precision Econowind to have the highest quality and most reliable product to date but they only deal in quantity. Getting back to your speaker you should confirm the coil is the problem and not leed wires, shifted magnet, ripped suspension, cone fracture, or glue failure. If the speaker stinks like burnt bandaids than the coil is definitely fried. On some speaker models I have been suscessfull in reusing the OEM parts so the speaker still looks original if it is an issue and drops the cost somewhat. If the parts are knifed than they must be replaced.

Hello, It is possable for you to get a voice coil replacement if you really are that attached to the speaker. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy new speakers instead, but anyway I'm here to help. I have some subs that needed voice coils, I bought them from E-Bay cheap and ordered new voice coils for them or the place will custom wind your voice coil. The site, it's the one I use and have fixed all the subs I bought and made them better, more wattage cuz some of my subs were dual voice coil and I had them turned into one voice coil subs, but you have to becareful cuz of the thickness of the coil wire and thickness between the speakers magnet pole and outer magnet wall. Thats only if you want to upgrade your speakers. I just tried it once and it works great. Anyway enough of my story were not here for stories, I just thought I'd give you some insight that might be helpful. The site I speak of is www.mwaspeakerparts.com. They are very helpful and will custom wind a voice coil for you. You can give the dimensions or it's better just to send them the voice coil if possable, sometimes they are really fried but maybe enough left for them to figure it out. Also you can send them the whole speaker I think, don;t know for sure, but probably could for them to test fit before sending back to you. Hope this helps, It did for me.

No. You would have to find a vendor of the wire used in voice coils and wind them yourself, which also means you have to pull the cone out without damaging the surround or spider , and be able to put is all back together too . Your best bet with an older sub is to find a good deal on ebay.
