Question about Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers
No idea the model number but my speakers are 7 years old, had them stored in a box in garage for a couple months. Its a 5 speaker surround sound system. Prior to that they were hooked up to my computer. Question is what makes the rattling "paper" sound in the subwoofer and how can I fix it?
See the rear cone, spider and voice coil junction at rest and when cone is manually lifted outward/forward.Then you can easily tell if the spider has separated, as there is little pressure needed to move the cone manually, in and out of the gap. Compare that pressure to your good sub. If there is a notable difference in physical pressure to move either cone, you can rest assured that the spider is not moving or providing resistance to cone manipulation. This is a sure sign of spider/coil joint failure and can easily be sees as you conduct these tests. If that is what you see then repair it or change with new one
