    Hi Calu,



    Have you looked at your speaker cones to check if they require reconeing?

    You need to look for any tears in the cone or if it has a foam surround see if this is perished.

An ohm meter can determine only if the coil is open. For an 8 ohm speaker (impedence), the resistance measurement will be around 6 ohms. Why do you think these need reconing? Are they noisy?

I have a pair of bose901 speakers early model maybe 1970 right speaker just stopped working and there is a small buzz coming out? Help


bose 901s have 9 drivers at .75 ohms each wired in series, one of the drivers probably went south, and if one fails they all don't work. open the box and remove the drivers marking the wires for polarity(VERY IMPORTAINT) check with multimeter which driver (speaker) is open or over 1 ohm resistance, that's your culprit. take it to a recone shop for repair or order the replacement driver from bose. also check the condition of the surrounds, as after 30+ years they all probably need replacement. any competent speaker repair shop should be able to help at a cost of around $25 per driver. Also make sure you ALWAYS use the bose eq with these speakers.

Level 9 Sound Designs MH-500 Computer Speakers buzzing


I think after reading your question that your speakers cable may be short or join another line. As a result, it become earthing & create noise. So you can test it by a Multimeter. The multimeter indicator point place on X10 or X100. Then you can understand where the problem in your speakers line. thanks

Hi Thanks for your help, One year old Sony mini


sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....


the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative..
measure-speaker-impedance-1.1-800x800.jpg Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics) Insert the probes of a digital multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain about which one to use.

  • 2 Select the range for the multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance outside of that range.
  • 3 Touch one probe to each of the speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the multimeter.

    Hercules XPS 210 sub problem. distorted sound


    I think you've just answered your own question. It sounds as if you've coned the sub woofer. Meaning you've fractured the bond between the edge of the speaker body with the speaker cone. Or overheated the voice coil and it's distorted and not getting free movement. Excuse the Pun but it "sounds" like you need a new speaker as a replacement. If it's a particularly expensive speaker it can be reconed. A check of the Net for someone close to you will find a company who recones them. If it's a cheaper one then a replacement would be in order.

    One pair goes to bigger speaker (woofer) and other pair for smaller speakers in box, to get full frequency response, you need to hook both cables.

    SX-315 Suddenly Shuts Off


    Hi Pete7591

    It is more likely to be an output stage problem. The unit will be shutting down as a result if a DC offset in a faulty channel. You will need to isolate the problem somewhat to diagnose what is going on. Do you have a multimeter and a decent knowledge of electronics? If so, then I can talk you throiugh some things to check. If you dont think you are up to it, I would take it to a HiFi repair guy for a look.

    It may be more worth your while to buy a refurbished unit here for $132.

    I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :)

    Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
