Rattle Problem w/ subwoofer

No idea the model number but my speakers are 7 years old, had them stored in a box in garage for a couple months. Its a 5 speaker surround sound system. Prior to that they were hooked up to my computer. Question is what makes the rattling "paper" sound in the subwoofer and how can I fix it?

I have a Fisher home stereo with ST-845 speakers. I just replaced the foam around the subwoofers and one has a bass rattle now when the volume is turned up. I used shims when I put in the new foam. Any suggestions?

When you put the new foam, maybe the cone went off center. Get a new kit, and re-do the job with more care. Check to make sure that the spider is okay, and that the speaker coil is not warped or anything like that.

There are speaker companies the professionaly rebuild speakers. They are better equiped and have the jiggs and facilities to properly rebuild the speaker from the coil up.

If you really want your speakers, you should consider giving the complete set out for rebuilding and testing.

I have a pair of Bose 901 V speakers and I stored them and now the rubber around the speakers has rotted away.Can I replace them or should I just trash them?

SAVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Crossing fingers) mine are 26 years old and still holding up. But I know where to find a nearly endless supply of them on eBay.

Search eBay for "bose 901 surrounds", check the 'include description' box.

Around $33 for both speakers.

I am looking for an audio cable for a Sanyon ASX-3000 powered subwoofer.


I think the reason your not finding anything is that you have made an error in taking down the model number. First, I believe you meant SANYO and not SANYON. and I find very odd that your model ASX-3000 only gets very few hits on any search tool. Can you be more specific in what type of cable your talking about (from where to where) include pictures if you can.

Normally subwoofer have one RCA type input connector and SPEAKER IN type input bay, You can use either. Both wires necessary to connect to those inputs are available in dollars store and almost any hardware or electronic store.

I have the SB-HW950 subwoofer and teh SC-PT950 speakers and I just purchased a Denon Receiver to replace my DVD/ receiver player. So now I have SC-PT950 speakers playing through the Denon but for some...

Yes, the old Panasonic SC-PT950 did drive the subwoofer by its own amp, such as it was.

It's never a good idea to adapt prescribed connectors to bare speaker wire or vice versa.

Speaker Level and Line Level signals are worlds apart and equipment damage may result. Your Denon (model unknown) probably requires a POWERED SUBWOOFER, to which it would provide Line Level LFE from its Pre Out.

Read the manual where it doesn't say to convert a speaker wire to RCA.

To all experts: Hi! I have a Cerwin VegaLW15 Subwoofer for some years, now when I play music the sound rattle, first I thought the some wrong with the driver put a new 15" woofer in it does the same...

Is the rattle random or related to the source signal?

It could be excessive low frequency content or resonance. Since it's intermittent you might want to determine what conditions lead to the problem and see what changes affect it. Proximity to a turntable will almost certainly cause feedback, for example. Cables should be routed away from strong sources of magnetism or power supplies.

We have a jvc home theater surround sound system and the subwoofer just stopped working. the model number for the sub is sp-pwc30 and we want to just replace the subwoofer any ideas how to get one?

Depending of the type of Subwoofer that required your system.

A) Amplified Subwoofer. (With 110volts A.C. cord attached to the sub)
The subwoofer electronics circuit needs repair or change.
You will find a compatible subwoofer for this type of subwoofer in audio appliance stores.

B)Not amplified Subwoofer (No 110volts A.C. cord attached to the sub)

Bring your sound system to a technician to have the soldering remaked to the devices bolted on the main heatsink.
And have the Subwoofer checked too.

This type of subwoofer can mostly be buy in kit with the satellites speakers.
And need to match thee impedance of the output of your system.

Search for ( 4 ohm or 6 ohm 8 ohm ) near the Sub outlet behind your system.

Sony SA-VA 100 won't turn on

You can try a factory reset.

Push and hold down Dolby NR, stop and disc 7 buttons, then push power.

Otherwise it looks like $60 to $100 repair bill. These are not the most repair freindly units.

Good Luck.
