How to fix a speaker

I assumes that the speaker of your car audio system has been burned out and posts this solution. Youcan buy the speaker cone paper along with it voice coil, ready to fit on, from any electonic spare part selling shops at your town. Never think that you can get the quality of sound as it was before. Because,there are so many calculations and fitting technique for making speakers. You can hear it. That is all. OK.

When i turn the volume up to(17-20) my sound cuts out and my speakers make a cracklin noise.i have bought new speakers and rechecked all speakers are rated at 50 watts rms and my stereo pumps out...

It seems you needs more power to maintain the level of good sound.Maybe the maximum volume is 30 - then the mininum is 15 and you can't hear any cracking sound. If you exceed 15 the minimum, as you said starting 17 - 20 you hear crackling sound .Then you reach ,what they called the "cliping level"so much distortion and crackling sound,your stereo too small to accomodate .You must add a power amplifier so crackling will gone and to fit your listening pressure...

Hope it may help you;

I have a Kenwood KFC-XW1100DVC sub woofer and it sounds was working fine when i took it out of my jeep.I put it back in and it worked fine for 5 minutes the started crackling.

If you're sure that you didn't drop the subwoofer while handling it outside of your Jeep, make sure your connections are solid. Perhaps you did not connect your wires from your terminal to the voice coils solidly. Otherwise, use your best judgement and determine whether or not the subwoofer is up to par on its normal performance. Try to keep the volume down for a little bit, to give it some rest.

I cannot turn the volume down. i even removed the plastic button and turn the post but the volume will not go0 down

If it doesn't get louder when you increase the volume, then possibility that is not the volume control or the potentiometer isn't in volume adjustment mode. Try pushing the knob before you rotate it, it might switch to a different function. Other cause could be that the switch is smoked. This is possible specially with analog type rotary and slider potentiometers. With digital static switches it also happens when it's just so used up and doesn't conduct electricity at the contact surface inside the wafer casing.

Do you know if my woofer is blown?

well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck

Speaker problems

i would make sure that your speakers are wired in the correct phase.. positive and negative are correct.. if they are out of phase they will cancel each other out giving you no bass

There sould be an input level control on the main amp that drives these woofers. Adjust the input so that even iof the stereo is tuned up all the way the amp is limiting the amout af input. Before you do this and turn up the stereo, turn down the amp input control all the way then you can slowly bring it up when you turn up the stereo's volume. Good Luck
