You could get to buy the right size and suspension material, a good one from a spare shop dealing in speaker diapharam, coils, spiders and surrounds. If you can paste the suspension without removing the coils it would be good. but if the spider had come off, remove the coil/paper carefully, fix the suspension, use a thin film inside of the coil insert to centrallise the coil between the magnets and paste the spider/ suspension after removing the film. The speaker must move without any rubbing to finalise your fixing. allow it to dry, connect the coils and test. You must take patience and time to get this right and you can. Do not park your car in open sunlight/ accumulating dust, to reduce further weathering. Good day

Subwoofer output distorted


Check to see if the speaker foam surrounds have disintegrated on your subwoofer. I bet it is. If so the speaker will sound like it is distorting or vibrating. Electrically it should be fine. My 2000 Avalon has this same problem with the 8" JBL subwoofer. It is a common problem and an easy fix. Go online to ebay or Amazon and purchase a speaker foam surround replacement kit (Ranges from $18.00 to $25). Youtube also has "How To" videos on how to repair this on your own. I just ordered my foam kit and awaiting the parts. Here is one for $23 but you can shop around for other deals.

HOW TO GLUE SPEAKER BACK TO BASKET


It sounds like your speaker surround blew away and separated from the speaker cone and/or housing. I'm in the process of fixing one my speakers by replacing the surround.

Generally, when this happens, you'll want to completely replace the speaker surround (the outer ring that allows the speaker coil and cone to travel in and out, usually made of rubber or foam rubber). This isn't necessarily super difficult, it just takes some time, skill and patience, if you want to avoid messing up the speaker and sound from it.


Inspect and repair your existing speaker:


1) Measure:


a) the diameter of your speaker cone (outer edge of the angled piece that goes inward toward the center coil) and the


b) diameter of the speaker housing (the metal "frame" part the speaker surround glues to, which is usually where the speaker mounting holes are located).


Note
whether the area on the speaker cone where the surround connects to is flat or angled.


2) Ordering: You'll want to purchase the new speaker surround to match the similar material you've already got, as close as possible to the exact dimensions you measured in either flat or angled for mounting to the speaker cone.


SpeakerWorks.com tends to be a bit more expensive than others than can be found online, and they will normally have what you need. Their speaker surround repair kits normally come with instructions, surround, glue and a little brush. I found hunting around can save 50% or more.


3) Gluing: Get yourself some Aleene's Tacky Glue (online or in craft stores), and make sure you don't use too much or too little, applying in a uniform coat on one surface, then applying gentle pressure to get the surfaces to stick, and allow it to dry completely for 24 hours.


IMPORTANT: This can be tricky, so be patient, or you're buying a new speaker. If you don't feel comfortable, take it to be repaired properly.


Typically, you'll want to start gluing the new speaker surround to the outer portion of the speaker cone, either on the underside or inside, as it was with the prior surround. Make sure it's centered, applying just enough glue with a brush to insure it holds and you can still slide everything around slightly into proper position. Gently move the speaker in and out to make sure nothing is rubbing. Allow this to dry for a full 24 hours, and do NOT attempt to glue the surround to the housing until after the cone glue is completely dry.


Now, it's at least 24 hours later, you can do the same thing by applying an even layer of glue to the surround (or onto the frame) to complete the new surround replacement. Apply light pressure to make sure it's centered, again gently moving the speaker in and out to make sure nothing is rubbing. Allow this to dry for 24 hours, just like before.


I know, impatience makes this difficult, but then you don't want to be doing this all over again by trying to move too quickly. Worse yet, you can end up completely destroying your speaker cone.


The nice thing about that tacky glue is is holds well and allows you to position things for a while before it sets. Just remember to allow the proper drying time, which is always way longer than the dry glue you can see.


Remember to defer to a professional repairman if you do not feel comfortable doing these repairs yourself.

I hope this helps!

The spongy rubber around the speaker cone has come away/disintegrated and of course they can`t be used. I also noticed the front spongy cover has disintegrated. Do I have a problem with bugs or something....


The foam surrounds degrade with the years. No bugs, just old age. If the speakers are worth it, you can have them repaired at better audio stores.

Subs quit working its not the amp they were working fine


How do you know it's not the amp?  Have you tried hooking up good speakers to the same output terminals of the amp?

Speaker failure modes: Usually they fry, the foam surround disintegrates, or there's a bad internal wire connection/solder joint that fails. Subwoofers are designed to handle a lot of power and rarely fail.

There are three possibilities: 
1) The signal isn't getting to the amp from the crossover.
2) The amp is toast.
3) The speakers are bad. 

You don't tell me whether you have a separate amp for the subs with an external crossover, or whether you have one amp with internal crossover and separate internal amps and speakers outputs for subs and standard speakers, so I can't be more specific.

What you can do is:

Check all external connections, including the power connections.

Try substituting replacements for the patch (signal) cables to see if you have a bad cable.

Beyond this, it's pretty much up to a repair technician.

How do i take midrange speaker out of dash it rattles and dash is split


Hi

You will need to take the dash cover off. Just get a #20 torx and you can do it. The speaker is attached to the underside of the panel.Due to design choices like cheap paper cones and foam surrounds, after a few years of use, midranges don't sound great and almost invariably disintegrate. Then you get awful buzzing and crackling.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

We have had a Technics stereo for 16 years and have had NO problems until the last couple weeks. If the volume gets turned up, the signal will come on that tells us that there is an OVERLOAD. We have tried...


Disconnect the speaker wires at the receiver, turn up the volume, if it goes into protection, it's an internal problem and needs service. If it does not go into protection, re connect one speaker at a time and test. If it shuts down check the speaker itself, if they are as old as the receiver, chances are good that the surrounds on the speakers themselves have disintegrated. Older speakers used foam surrounds, newer ones use rubber or plastic composite material that will not disintegrate. What will happen is dust and moisture will get into the voice coil and cause a short, even though the speaker still plays. Hope this helps. If you need more help or just advice, post a comment, and I'll help if I can

I have a set of RM300 Polk sub-sattelite speakers. Have had them for some time and still love em but.... The foam surrrounds on the bigger sattelites have disintegrated. Polk says too old cant fix. ...


Yes they can be re-surrounded. It is not that hard, it just taes some practice. How big are the speakers? Look for a local speaker repair shop. They are few, but still exist. The hardest part is finding the correct surround. As long as the remainder of the speaker is in good shape, you will find these to be good as new once done. FIrgure about 2-3 days to complete the job properly.
