Orion subwoofer repair

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.

I need to wire 3 woofers but 2 are dual voice coil and one is single voice coil

sure, if you wish to wire them all together, wire the first dual voice coil subs first voice coil negative to 2nd voice coil positive, second voice coil negative to single voice coil sub positive, and single voice coil negative to 2nd dual voice coil subs 1st voice coil positve (again with the second dual voice coil sub, run the first voice coil negative to the 2nd voice coil positve) your speaker leads will be attatched to first dual voice coils 1st voice coil positive, and 2nd dual voice coils 2nd voice coil negative)

I have a pair of headphones that are approximately 26 years old. They are absolutley awesome headphones. One side has stopped working. Do you know if it can be repaired?

hi...seems you really it...hope this help..
since the other one is working check the defective one for a cut or open wire..
try to unscrew, and check for loose connection in the voice coil terminal
if none...using a multi tester check the coil if it has 400-500 ohms reading
if none it means it need to be replace...
replacing the coil will make it work again and still have the original appearance..
please rate and vote..good day

My Teac AG-10D switches itself off after a couple of seconds of me turning it on. Is this a thermal protect? if so, how can i fix it? if not, any ideas what the problem is?

The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video2_bing.gif Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

I have a technics sa-ax7 receiver and have sudenly lost sound on the right hand speakers.can they still be repaired. What could be the problem. Thanks

1). Look for a blown fuse on back - or inside. I had this similar problem with a Technics SA 5060 (vintage) receiver, and there were 2 separate fuses for left and right channels. One may be blown.
2). Try switching speakers (physically switch the left and right input plugs in their jacks - or wires if no jacks. If the left speaker doesn't work now, there is an issue with the speaker that has no sound. Run an ohm meter on these speakers as well to check them. There should be 8 ohms approximately. If no reading, then your apeaker is probably blown. If you can see a short on ohm meter 0 ohms) then you have a short circuit in your speaker.

No sound from Sub Pre-out on Onkyo TX-SR606

Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^
