Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an orion hcca 10d.2 subwoofer, and one of the sets of two ohm voice coils seems to be blown. I am trying to find someone who can fix his sub with the quality parts it was originally built with. The sub looks brand new, and has very little play time on it. Orion wont repair it, and the service department didnt recomend anyone.
A good spekaer repair guy could at least pull the cone out of he basket and have a look to see why the voice coil went open circuit. Sometimes they can be repaired. sometimes the entire voice coil can be replaced. Spider wires fatiguing are often the main culprit that make drivers with long extension to fail. Sometimes they are secured to the cone with contact adhesive, that it itself can corrode the braided spider wire causing it to go open.
I am sorry mate, but the only contacts I have in New Mexico that I found through your yellow pages, and because I know little about them, I cannot offer you a reliable refferal. I suggest you go(ring) to a decent proper HiFi store in your area. They will most certainly know of a specialist bloke that can do the work for you.
I know I cannot fix you problem over the internet(if you lived in Brisbane, Australia I would do it personally:)) but a FixYa rating would be great for my time to evaluate your problem and offer advice. Ring around a bit... I am sure you will find someone to repair the original driver. Good luck.

Your speaker probably has no replacement parts available, Depends on how old it is.Chances are that it was made overseas. The older Orions that were made in the states were repairable.The off shore stuff is not, because there are no parts available. I wish it was as simple as cutting out the cone, but it isn`t. We have to re-use the old cone/surround because there are no new surrounds available with the same dimensions.Chances are the spider is not available either. Add to that fact that if the surround is rubber, not foam, the adhesives cannot be disolved with M.E.K..I`ve been reconing for 25 years, but without parts, we have nothing to rebuild. Sorry.
