Question about Motorola Talkabout T6400 (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio
I would like to help because I have about 10 of those radios, and one by one the speakers are binding up just like yours did.
However, the speaker is built into the frame of the radio and the Manufacture does not sell replacemt parts for them. In addition, there is really not enough room to mount a replacement speaker of similar dimensions, and I am would be quite capable of doing it myself if that was possible.
I hate to face the fact that my radios have seen better days unless I want to use a speaker mic and I don't because the extra cost, size and weight are not practical to save radios that I can replace with new for just a bit more.
They were great radios, and Motorola should be ashamed that they don't make after market speakers. I'm sure they just want to sell new ones to us.
By the way there are no 'WIRES" to the speaker, it makes contact with the board terminals when you re-assemble the radio.

There are no other controls to adjust the volume or tone settings of the audio output.
On speaker replacement, most TalkAbout speakers are not difficult to replace. They are however a challenge to purchase. It might be easier to purchase an off the shelf speaker of same dimensions and construction or those of comparable brands (Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, Uniden). The only factor to be considered is if the replacement speaker will fit the confined space at the back of the front panel.
Alternately, you can just use an external speaker/microphone rather than purchase a replacement internal speaker, opening the unit up and do some minor soldering.
If even with a replacement speaker and/or an external one, the issue remains, it is possible that the unit has an internal electronic fault in the audio amp, demod, IF stage(s).
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
