Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

My alpine e10 stopped working unless i pushed down on the cone and then it would only work for a few seconds. i took it out of the box and all the wires are fine. The coil seems to be alright but im thinking the driver might be beat. I would appreciate an experts opinion...thankyou

SOURCE: wire to cone connection

try using quick setting epoxy glue. just put pressure on the same spot while holding the epoxy with an old spoon lined with clear plastic wrap. after epoxy sets, remove the spoon and trim away the plastic film with a new razor blade. to be sure the connection is being made, turn sound on just so you can barely hear it before performing this so that the cone vibrations do not interfere with the setting epoxy.

SOURCE: 1 subwoofer stopped working in a box for 2

Hello mccanello55,

You need to remove the subs from the box in order to check the internal box wiring. First, make sure that the wire going from the nonworking sub terminals to the enclosure terminals is OK. Then check the "braided" leads on the back of the terminals going to the speaker cone. If the wiring all looks OK, remove the wires from the sub terminals, and use a multimeter set to the lowest ohm range and check the resistance across the subs terminals. You should read somewhere between 3-4 ohms. If the meter reads infinity (that is no reading at all), then the voice coil is open. If it "pegs" (reads "0"), the coil is shorted.

Either open or shorted means the voice coil is no longer working.

I could not find any replacement parts on Sony's support page, so it's most likely that they don't even repair these. They probably just replace the sub if it's under warranty, and if it's not under warranty, they probably recommend that you buy a new one.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: sub works when i push on it

the woven leads between the terminal posts and voice coil go bad. they may appear intact, but they can still go bad. I unsoldered them, clipped a lil off the ends, and re-soldered them. works great.

SOURCE: Sub stopped working, unless i push on it?

sounds like maybe the wiring from the cone to the magnet is ripped or broken.... which is why when you push the cone in it works because it pushes it far enough to make the wires touch just barely, but when you let it go the wires seperate and you get no sound.

Your wire is built with slack, so when the cone goes in and out during a song, the wire can move with it and not get broken. but when you cone moves too in or too far out, then that wire can snap or become disconnected.

I have fixed this by soldering the copper wire, but you may lose some power because your copper wire might be a bit shorter(it will probly break again)... or you can lengthen it, but it is not easy to solder... some places will fix it for you but the cost may be more than what it is worth.

This is just a guess, take your speaker outta the box, and look to see if these wires are broken, lose, or frayed.

good luck.

I have an Eagle 5000 air purifier. Stopped working


Just went thru this Tues. Get the top of screen in place and then push the plastic in on safety switch. I was having it push down and then slide screen in. That plastic piece is split like when you push it in, it hits 2 different heights. Instead of pushing it down get top in and push the plastic in, easy. Turned on then. Already had the switch on so it fired up soon as I pushed it in.

Alpine mrp-m650 amp cutting out


Some AMPs have a thermal cutout, that switches the amp off if it gets too HOT.

But this sounds like your amp or sub is screwed, either there is to much resistance in your sub, eg: Burnt voice coil, carbon builds up on the coil stopping the sub from moving freely. Push on the cone of the sub & listen for a scrapeing sound.
or test this by continuity testing the sub terminals & pushing the cone if the BUZZER on the MultiMeter cuts in & out as you push & release then your sub is screwed. ( a certain amount of repeatative pushing it may free up the voice coil.)

or your Amp may have blown a internal fault that will have to be sent of for repair.

Or you have a incorrectly rated fuse for your system,

or the battery cant kope with the power surges???
THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU AS YOU HAVE A POWER-CAP!!!
