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.

regards
Graeme

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.

What is the Specs for Digital starsound 12" ssw-f1-1242?

- 700rms
- stamped slim steel basket

Not that good of quality speakers. You would be lucky if they lasted a couple months pushing 700 watts rms.

I have a 10.2 Orion Hcca subwoofer 4 ohm and wanted to know if I can put each coil to each channel its a Brutus 1200 watt 2 channel amp model 1210d is it safe for my woofer and how much rms wattage I'm...


You would need to know what power your amplifier supplies at 4 ohms. In reality, you would be better off bridging the amplifer and wiring your sub in parallel to a 2 ohm load. This would allow you to pull the most power out of the amplifier. It would be safe to do a voice coil to each channel on a 2 channel amp. However, if you happen to have a 4 voice coil sub and attempted to put two 2 channel amps to it, you would have to make sure your amps are leveled. No easy feat. The variance you could have with that could damage the voice coils. But luckily, that's not your case.

My Orion d-5000 amp which is wired to an Orion hcca 12.2 sub cuts out at high volumes , it's wired with 0 guage wires


Your speaker is a dual 2ohm sub. If you have both voice coils wired Parallel that will drop the ohm load to 1, which the amp can not handle. You need to wire the voice coils in series. Treat each voice coil as a speaker.

How to wire 2 dvc subs to a orion 2150sx ? dont know the wire colors or how to hook um to my amp.


what impedence are the voicecoils?
Dual 4 - Dual 2 - Dual 1 ??

Orion SX / GS / HCCA amp Wiring guide:

Orange = Right Positive
Black/ Orange = Right Negative
Yellow = Left Positive
Black/ Yellow = Left Negative
Blue = 1+1

Bridging of SX or HCCA Amps:
1. Use the Orange wire for Positive.
2 Use the Black/ Yellow wire for Negative
3. Push "in" the Mono Button
That amplifier is only 4ohm mono stable - so assuming the subs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils...

First wire both in Parallel Independently So each subwoofer is now a 2 ohm load. (combine + and + - and- on both subwoofers)

Now Take a positive on one voicecoil of sub #1 and attach to amplifier+(orange)

Take a - on that same subwoofer and attach it to a + on the OTHER subwoofer.

Finally, take a - from the second woofer to the amplifier -(black/yellow)

Now you have a 4 ohm load on your bridged channels.


Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!
