Re: Blown 6x9 subwoofer???

Any speaker will work. It's better if you put in the same kind, but if it's just a stock system it shouldn't matter.

The bass in my Sony 3-way 6X9 speakers wont work

if these speakers are several years old, chances are that the left one is just blown. could be a loose wire, but if not, it would be cheaper to get new speakers than to get that one fixed

My subwoofer distorts/rattles. the amp isnt the problem and the wiring was done correctly. maybe the sub is blown? can anyone help me? does anyone know how to fix it? if so can the walk me through it or...

If it distorts and rattles, chances are high that the woofer has blown, which usually means the wiring around the cone overheated or the cone itself hyper-extended. In either case, it would have caused irrepairable damage.

To my knowledge, it cannot be repaired. In this case, I hope I'm wrong...

Best of luck!

No sound from speakers has a fuse blown

If fuse has been blown means power capacity of the subwoofers exceeded the actual power transmitted.Subwoofers capacity cant hold on to the actual power transmitted.If you replace a new fuse check first if internal circuit was not damaged .When a fuse blown out its an indication that something wrong happened within the circuit.Check first subwoofer line if there was short circuit using a tester.Select OHMS mode and try to check both lines.If no movement it means you have it check to a service technician to fix.

Can a kicker cvr be fixed if it is blown if so how

Speaker lesson here. For space and time, I'll not get into certain nomenclature. Working from top to bottom, you have the cone, rubber surround, basket, spider, voic coil former, voice coil, and the magnet. The binding posts are connected to the tensil leads which connect to the spider and the voice coil. As the woofer is positively + and negatively - charged, it creates a magnetic field which moves the woofer up and down. There is a small gap between the magnet and the voice coil and former that's called a magnetic gap. This gap is what helps the speaker to move up and down, and creates the Xmax. The Xmax of the woofer is the maximum linear excursion the woofer can travel without causing permanent damage. With a blown speaker, normally the voice coil and voice coil former have been pushed out of the correct magnetic gap, usually around the top of the magnet. That means that the only way to fix it is to take the woofer completely apart. My suggestion is to just go and spend the money. A blown speaker is a sign of abuse, and voids warranties from the majority of companies out there to include Kicker.

Typically you will hear a popping sound when the bass hits, or you may not have any sound at all.......If the sub sounds good then your ok.

On a side note, pulling on the cone while the sub is in operation can damage the unit because it cannot move freely under load

Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
