First pick it up and shake it, to see if something is loose inside it!
Sometimes the speaker cone can become damaged. If you can get at it, gently press it so it moves up & down. Don't press it from the side, just apply force all over. It should just move without scraping. If it doesn't the cone is damaged.

I have AIWA NSX-RV85. The sub-woofer surround tore leaving just the cone. When I play, The woofer just makes a rattling sound coming out of vibrating cone.Any advise on how to fix my speakers.Thanks


Refit the rubber, you can find itbon eBay, its called reconing actually in this case the cone is the inlybpart wich you dont want to replace... The rattling is beingproducer due to the fact the rubber normally holds the cone ibto positionering over the coils. This rattling is not good can defect your cone. So dont play it roll you got a new rubber fitted!

Hello. My mirage sub just started to make a fuzzy noise when playing the bass...it happened after a party that played music on the sub very loud. I don't know what to do....help!


You have damaged the sub by playing it too loud.
Its either the map or speaker that has gone.
You should send it off to get repaired.

Sounds like your sub is overextending itself, and possibly losing contact at the voice coil. Overextending will make a weird rattling sound, losing contact at the voice coil will make a popping sound.

Subwoofer rattling.


Make sure your sub is securely screwed to your box, boot build, whatever you have it sitting in. Remember subs are made to vibrate when working, check your screws are tight.

Rattling at higher volumes


Hi,

If you play original DVD/CD, you will not face this issue. Else set the central speaker volume to low when starting with movie.
