How To Remove JBL Model L46 Woofer

I have two JBL Model L46 Speakers, about 25 years old. Foam on woofers has disintegrated. The Speaker Exchange in Tampa, FL, can repair for $ 44.00 each plus shipping. I have removed foam on one speaker and have removed 4 screws, but speaker will not come out (I have been gentle !). Can you advise next steps ? Thank You. Paul Cathcart

Get a metal 1" wide thin spatula and tap it in between the speaker and the cabinet. The 117 woofer has a large flat side. Work your way around the frame and gently pry it up. Good luck. Pointblank

Find a JBL n24aw replacement speaker


Looks like the woofer is a 4" Polyplas shielded driver, part #NS-W4SS, 4 ohms. If JBL can't supply a replacement try looking at Madisound or Partsexpress. Find a 4" 4 ohm woofer or mid-bass driver with a round frame. Check the actual measurements against your driver because not all "4 inch" drivers are the same size or bolt pattern. Make sure the depth will fit. You don't need "shielded" unless the speakers will be right up against a CRT (and nobody uses CRTs these days). Get a pair and replace both because the new driver certainly won't match the old.

Take a look at the Dayton Audio RS100-4 from Parts Express (or Amazon). The Hi-Vi M4N from Madisound "may" work but it is 8 ohms. http://www.jbl.com/resources/Brands/jbl/Products/ProductRelatedDocuments/en-US/TechnicalSheet/NSP1%20SAT%20ts.pdf

Remote reset


Yes the woofer and tweeter can be replaced but the woofer needs a recone kit to repair as the whole speaker cannot be replaced without replacing half of the speaker enclosure.... call JBL pro or a service center for help.

I have a pair of JBL N24AW outdoor speakers. One of then has lost the woofer and I am only getting what the tweeter puts out. I think it's a 4" speaker. Can you get a replacement for this?...


Hello
Woofers of different types are available in the electronic sparepart market. Just open the woofer box, and screw out the present woofer, and check its impedence and size. Keep this speker with you as sample, go for a new one. You can bought it from most of the electronic sparepart shops. OK.

My sub woofer stopped working, please tell me where it is located so i can check the speaker and also check if power is going to it thank you very much joe


The JBL premium sound system has a large woofer in the bottom of each door, a small mid-range speaker next to the woofer, & tweeters next to the front door windows in the corner, & two full-range speakers near the rear seats. The woofer (not sub-woofer) handles all the low end. You can test the woofer by turning the BASS to max and TREBLE to minimum (make sure balance and fader are centered) and put your ear next to each woofer.
The woofer is usually the 1st speaker to have problems after 10 years or so. The outer edge of the woofer starts to degrade. You will usually hear a rattling sound out of the woofer when this happens.
NOTE: If no sound at all out of the woofer (tweeters are OK), you might take your car into a car stereo shop. They can put a speaker on the wires connected to the speaker and make sure your problem is not the radio.
PROBLEM: You can still hear sound out of the woofers but it is distorted
SOLUTION 1: Go to a car audio shop and have them install new woofers. These may cost $30+ each but the dealer cost is over $200 for each woofer (crazy).
SOLUTION 2: More involved but very cost effective. If you or a friend is handy, you can go to www.speakerworks.com and order a new set of speaker outer rings (on the site they are called speaker SURROUND) that will replace the damaged outer rings on the woofers (replace on both woofers). They really work great and your speakers should last for many more years.
Hope this helps.

I been having a problem with my JBL TLX CSS-SUB1, I don't have the manual. Connecting speaker wires from the JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 to the a Digital Audio/Video Control Center ( it's a reciever) I confused,...


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

Internal wiring schematic for a JBL 4311 WX-A


the conductor xxx\blk is the minus or black( from speaker) the outher is positive\red pin from speaker) the woofer is bigest speaker inside is connected on the crossover at low output, tweeter at high output, if you connect wrong you can burn speakers and crossover, you can test with very low volume on amplifier.

1st connect low to woofer, it only her low freq below 500Hz like drums and bass, if connect on med out the speaker is working as handpocket old radio audio. if connect on high the speaker is like no audio out. (the woofer take about 60-75% of amp power).

2nd connect the midrange at mid output you can listen to human voice cristal clear. if connect on high output you listem like esteric female shouting.

And connect the tweeter at the empty output

Take particular attention on polarity terminals, if you exchange the polarity you have a moofle sound traped inside of speaker, and some structered box noise who may open the box panels in future.

It is called "dry-rot" and it happens with age to paper cone speakers. I am not aware of any products made to help prevent this problem. But you can always replace the woofers with new one's or find a place that "recones" speakers and that would solve your problem for a long time. If you have rubber surround on the cones, it would take much longer to have any type of dry-rot problems. The "foam" type of surround on the cones is the worst for this problem. Most new woofers have polypropelyne surround of the cones and it would probably outlast you, so replacement with a good quality woofer really is a good option.
