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?

Thanks.

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.

    2nd Basslink, still no power-on. Please help


    this is in response to the post below:

    I just bot a basslink t and i wired it up and nothing it just keeps blowing the fues in the unit i got mine on ebay2.gif so i dont know if i can use the warranty dose anybody have an ida for me- britter623

    I got a used basslink about a month ago and had the exact same prob kept blowing fuses...found out that the voice coil had blown on the infinity...so I had a brand new dvc polk 10 sittin in the closet, I swapped them out, put the polk in the place of the infinity sub, however, the magnet is much larger, hence, dual voice coil, it would rattle sooo much from the passive radiator against the magnet, also could not turn the gain up at all due to the rattle. I got the bright idea to build a "custom fiberglas enclosure for the polk and incorporate the infinity's parts(amp/control) I finished the box finally last night and hooked it up this morning, no power, no lights, no nothing! s@#%, F&@%! ANyone had a prob w/the amp not having the lights turn on, no power??? Hope that helps about your fuse blowing issue.

    Rattle Problem w/ subwoofer


    See the rear cone, spider and voice coil junction at rest and when cone is manually lifted outward/forward.Then you can easily tell if the spider has separated, as there is little pressure needed to move the cone manually, in and out of the gap. Compare that pressure to your good sub. If there is a notable difference in physical pressure to move either cone, you can rest assured that the spider is not moving or providing resistance to cone manipulation. This is a sure sign of spider/coil joint failure and can easily be sees as you conduct these tests. If that is what you see then repair it or change with new one
