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.

The foam coil came apart the rim of the frame...how do you glue that back togather?


If its the foam around the lip then you can use apoxy glue or something of that nature. Just remember you want the glue to be rubber type glue and not hard glue. I've used the sealant you buy for transmission pan gaskets before and its still holding.

My 12 L7 the rubber came off the cone and doesnt hit as hard what kind of glue would fix my problem


Hi, Jr.

I'm sorry, but glue will not fix this problem. When the rubber or foam edge of a speaker breaks down or deteriorates because of age, it becomes almost like dust, which is why it cracks and then breaks apart and falls away from the speaker. The only way to fix it (besides replacing the speaker) is to replace the edge, or "surround". At this link, http://www.simplyspeakers.com/All-Foam-Kits_c_118-1-3.html, you will find a kit that you can buy to repair your speaker for about $30. The standard 12" repair kit will work if you have an 'angle cone edge attach' type speaker (see the bottom of the page for a picture of what this means). This page, http://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-repair-foam-edge-replacement-instructions.html, will show you step by step how to use the kit to repair your speaker.

Good luck, and please remember to rate my help.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

Hey type x blew the cone off of it and reattached with glue sub plays fine but ugly. no warranty how much to recone through alpine??


You don't have to buy a recone through alpine. You can, but it will be cheaper to go to the website Fixmyspeaker.com. Go to service request and full that out info. They can make a exact cone and you wish. To go through alpine you have to go to their website.

Subwoofer swr 1221d the Santroprene material from around the inner cone (not the basket) is letting go and i need an adhesive to stick it any idea on the type of adhesive which would work. i am thinking...


I have repaired speakers and surrounds with a good quality silicone sealant available from any hardware store, just make sure to let it dry for a couple of days. Rubber cement works okay too.

Hole in subwoofer


Hello colinomalley,

You can repair the hole using a flexible permanent adhesive. If all of the cone is still there, I wouldn't use a patch. I'd just put the jagged edges back together. If part of the cone is actually missing, you will need to patch it. Thin fiberglass cloth works pretty well. Use painters tape that will remove easily and cover the hole from the rear of the speaker. Cut the fiberglass cloth about 1/4" larger than the hole and attach it using a silicone based flexible adhesive. Allow it 24 hours to set up completely and then remove the tape from the rear.

A product called "shoe goo" works very well for speaker repairs. It's strong, flexible, and permanent.

Hope this helps.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you CAN'T rebuild the coil, for a multitude of reasons. It's THEORRETICALLY possible, but pragmatically IMpossible. Trust me, I know. Yes, your speaker is glued together (with VERY strong glues. When you dismantle a speaker you have to replace many parts including the surround and spider...). With that said.... There ARE shops that can repair speakers (and, no, they generally don't handwind coils...), but they are far and few and pretty expensive. A base model sub like that would't be economical to repair. I don't know where you're at, but the only one I know of is "The Circuit Shop" in Grand Rapids, MI. feel free to google them and call for a quote.
