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.

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.

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.
