Substitute for Woofer p/n 141760

I have a set of Pioneer SpeAkers Model CS-G201WAll and the woofers have dry rotted Foam around the Cone. Should I replace the Foam or both the Foam and Cone. Also, I have called Pioneer Corp. to see if they have a replacement Woofer for p/n 141760 and they said "no longer Available."

I checked for compatiable speaker sets and they listed model CSG201/CSB5000D. It doesn't say what the watts, ohms and frequency ranges are for this particluar item. Can you help me see if they are interchangeable?
Thank, Jeff

Hi there

Replace the foam for sure. It is always better than looking for another original driver to fit to the box, as they often have foam deterioration happening as well(spares are the same age as the originals) . A great idea(once repaired) is to use an artists paintbrush to apply "Armoural" a polyvinyl protectant to the foam. It will extend the life of it by at least double. They rot in hot humidity and heat environments and there is not alot that works better than that foam. I have done hundreds of speakers here in Queensland Australia. If you live in a hot humid area, there is probably a HiFi shop near you that does repairs to surrounds also. Good Luck

Do you have a source and knowledge for replacement of foam surrounds. holler back and I can help:)

regards
Graeme

What is the wattage breakdown for each speaker on my pair of Pioneer CS-N575 3 way speaker towers (I know the total max power combined output is 150 Watts)?


It's the woofer that will use almost all from this 150 W so if you replace woofer take one of 8 ohm which can handle 150 W and you done

I have a pair of custom made bookshelf size speakers that I love. They are older speakers that use french made Focal 7" dual voice coil drivers. One mid-bass 7" driver and one tweeter per...


Hi,
Well, fortunately it was the woofer that blew out. The reason I say that is because woofer material should have little to do with accurate reproduction in that frequency range. Since I don't know the model number of the speaker that was discontinued, I can suggest to you what can be done to get a satisfactory result.
1st If you have the model number on the Bass Driver AND Focal has the specifications. Go ahead and match the characteristics using THEIR data. The most important characteristics, besides the size of the driver would be the efficiency of the driver in terms of dB out. And the resonance frequency.
If these two are matched up closely, you should be good to go.
Focal is known to make good drivers, however, if you have to go to another manufacturer and you match the specs as above, then you should still do well.
If you get a newer Driver from focal, some of the characteristics may have been improved upon over the older driver. Such as transient response. If that were improved upon, It wouldn't sound really different, but it would seem tighter in the bass range.
One other thing I suggest. If you do as I suggest above and are pleased with the result, Go ahead and replace the woofer in the other speaker.
One additional point worth mentioning. Many of the foam surround speakers used in the old days in audio have failed because the foam has literally rotted away, as may be the case with your woofer. I know, as I have re-foamed enough of them. If you find a satisfactory woofer with a butyl rubber surround, it will never rot.
That would be the best replacement, as it would be permanent (if you don't badly overdrive it)
I've been an audiophile for most of my life, and I love music. I REALLY feel for you. I think that you will come out this just fine.
I hope this helps you,
Best,
Mark

THE WOOFER RATTLES REALLY BAD WHEN ANY MUSIC OR VOCAL IS RUN THROUGH IT, WE HAD THIS PROBLEM A FEW YEARS AGO AND REPLACED THE WOOFERS IN THE FRONT OF HOUSE MAIN PA SYSTEM, THE VOICE COIL WAS BAD.


you can have the woofer reconed, refoamed or replaced. if the voice coil is bad then you can only refoam or replace. if the problem is that the poly foam surround has dry rotted, then it can be refoamed or you can purchase a DIY refoam kit. there are also many replacement woofer options.

Seals around speakers are broekn and gone!


Hello kagato_morri,

While it's certainly possible to replace the surrounds, whether it's economical to do so is another question. For very high-end speakers, there are often "repair kits" available to replace spiders, cones, surrounds and for some, even the voice coils. But such parts are usually not available for your run-of-the-mill speakers.

If the speakers are otherwise in good condition, and you are willing to spend some time with them, you can use an adhesive foam to construct a new surround. A product called "shoe goo" makes a good permanent bond. It's a super strong rubber cement and will hold up under the stresses of the moving speaker cone.

Hope this helps.

It is called "dry-rot" and it happens with age to paper cone speakers. I am not aware of any products made to help prevent this problem. But you can always replace the woofers with new one's or find a place that "recones" speakers and that would solve your problem for a long time. If you have rubber surround on the cones, it would take much longer to have any type of dry-rot problems. The "foam" type of surround on the cones is the worst for this problem. Most new woofers have polypropelyne surround of the cones and it would probably outlast you, so replacement with a good quality woofer really is a good option.
