I have AIWA NSX-RV85. The sub-woofer surround tore leaving just the cone. When I play, The woofer just makes a rattling sound coming out of vibrating cone.Any advise on how to fix my speakers.Thanks


Refit the rubber, you can find itbon eBay, its called reconing actually in this case the cone is the inlybpart wich you dont want to replace... The rattling is beingproducer due to the fact the rubber normally holds the cone ibto positionering over the coils. This rattling is not good can defect your cone. So dont play it roll you got a new rubber fitted!

Polk Audio RTi4 voice coil burned out


Order a Re-Cone kit from Polk, or have a local company re-cone it. It can be a little tricky if you haven't done a recone before.

Sub-woofer driver rattle/buzz.


Bad news! It sounds like the coil is rubbing inside the magnet of the speaker! There's no cure, when the cone is warped it it knackers it up. Had the same problem some years ago with a Wharfedale speaker. Someone told me you can hit it on the part where the cone joins the magnet -with a hammer!
Anyway it didn't make a bit of difference! And the speaker was chucked.

My sub is making a rattling sound. I dont know what it is, and I dont play my movies that loud. I also have the sub power only about 40%, I dont know whats wrong with it


First pick it up and shake it, to see if something is loose inside it!
Sometimes the speaker cone can become damaged. If you can get at it, gently press it so it moves up & down. Don't press it from the side, just apply force all over. It should just move without scraping. If it doesn't the cone is damaged.

PSW202 now has buzzing sound. Was slight, not it is loud. Saw the fuse solution. What about the 35amp capacitors?


Mine does the same, even at low volume/frequency. Let me know if you ever find out why.
