Sub repair


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.

Bought the stereo 6 months ago, now the speakers won't work!!!! Please help!


Hi, when a speaker does not work, you might need to do some troubleshooting tips to know exactly where the problem is .

First you will need to test the speaker cone if it's working properly by using an AA battery and two wires to make sure the cone is working..

Connect one of the wires to the Positive side of the speaker, and the other on the Negative side, And after that use the battery to hear if the speaker cone will make a click sound.

If it doesn't make a click, that means the speaker cone is Bad, you will need to replace the speaker cone,
But if there is click from the speaker cone, that means the speaker is Ok, and you might need to trouble shoot your stereo to be sure if the sound IC chip is Ok in the stereo..

Hope it helped..

REPAIR CONE TEAR IN 18"


If the tear is large, or the speaker cone is brittle because of age, you might be best off having the speaker completely reconed. There are companies that offer the service, or you can buy replacement cones and do it yourself.

For small tears (an inch or so long), you can glue a patch in place. I have used a piece of a paper coffee filter as a patch, and plain white Elmer's glue slightly thinned with water. Put the patch over the tear and use a small brush to spread a thin layer of glue over it. Give it a day to thoroughly dry and you should be set.

I have found this repair to be more effective on smaller speakers than on large woofers, though. The woofer cones are more mechanically active. But I patched a couple of 15-inch cones that had been punctured for a friend, and they are still playing after a year. So it can't hurt to try.

I have a pair of M3 speakers and one is distorted, it sounds like the cone is warped. What would it cost to replace just the speaker?


I know the problem is a bad speaker it's warped, I was wanting to find a contact to purchase a new speaker. Not the whole housing but the speaker itself.

I blew out my car speaker. Can I fix it?


Yes you can if you >
The term blown speaker can have several meanings. If it was not fixable I would say it was a blown speaker.

So 1st is it a Subwoofer or a midrange.
The Sub a little easier to fix you can send it Back to the maker of the sub and they will fix it ($)
If the cone is damaged then just use silicon
if the wires + - that are attached to the basket and the cone have fried .Soilder a new coper wire on
If the voice coil has ripped silicon
and if the copper coil is melted (you can see it but the cone will not move in or out Frozen) then this is a good time to replace it

You can go online and see if there are professional Repair kits

Thank You Please Rate this solution

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
