Re: audiomobile evo needing repair
How old is it and why bother? most speakers now are quite cheap, but poor quality. most people will not notice this unless you are an audiophile. my suggestion: throw them out, keep the magnets, they are good to have around. get a new pair or a surplus pair. and, if you really like them, how did they go? if they went by playing your music too loud and you perforated the surrounds or blew the coils.... sorry buddy, your fault.

If the coil on the inside is looking ripped, it must be rubbing against the inner walls of the magnet. check of failure of continuity of the coil. if open and rubbing then you will need to replace the coil. I shall guide you through this job. carefully disconnect the coil lines to the frame, then using a good sharp tool remove the side suspension and the inner spider that suspends the coil. now you can remove the whole assmebly. if the coil is damaged then slowly cut out the coil, get a replacement of the same diameter from the spare parts shop. if not available you will need to have some experience to wind the coil in the same diameter with the same SWG. Once you get the coil fix it carrefully to the speaker diaphragm centrally, then centrally place into the speaker mountings with the coil just in the gap, not rubbing against the magnets. now you can glue out the spider and suspensions. there you are. Good luck .
Well actually you can repair it your self with geat ease i may add,,
actuall all that can go in the speaker is the coil.. Yep the coil thats all
You will need a coil for it, a dust cap and the cone.
1.) using a knife, cut the cone off
2.) ulsolder the coil from the speaker
3.) resolder the new coil
4.) firmly fit and glue the coil to the new cone
5.) glue the cone to the metal edges of the speaker
6.) glue on the dust cap..
7.) have a beer your done..
You can get the parts at any local electronisc shop, I'd recommend you cut the cone and the coil off and take it with you when buying parts.
HI. Your assessment is correct. This is , indeed, the result of a damaged voice coil. There may be a local audio store in your area, that may have a in house tech. This tech should be able to repair this type of coil damage, in house. If this is not an option, I recommend to contact the manufacture for a repair ticket.

Generally speaking if the voice coil is actually 'blown' (accepted too much power therefore reads as a short when connected to an ohmmeter) It would be cheaper to purchase a new sub woofer.
90% of the speaker manufacturing price is in the voice coil. The cage, driver and dustcap as well as the surround are inexpensive components.
I would suggest testing the voice coil with an ohmmeter first before you decide what to do. If the meter doesn't read a short then its likely a TV repair shop can reconnect the lead that attaches the terminal to the voice coil.
You dont want to do any repair to that sub... take it to a trusted alpine dealer and see if it qualifies for warranty repair... unless you get a high end sub like orion hcca's or others of that quality you cannot repair them and should never attempt to... any repair you do to them will make them distort unless you have the proper tools and know-how to do it
you have to send it to JL to have them replace the whole voice coil, surround and motor structure assembly. I can sell you a new sub with full JL factory warranty for about 475$ shipped to your door straight from their warehouse.
