Hi tiffleiffle

I use and recommend the specialist glue for speaker repairs that you can purchase online from here. Great for refixing spider wires,dust caps, foam surrounds. Also get just about any other speaker bit or spre part you could think of. Get your speaker bits from speakerbits

HOW TO GLUE SPEAKER BACK TO BASKET


It sounds like your speaker surround blew away and separated from the speaker cone and/or housing. I'm in the process of fixing one my speakers by replacing the surround.

Generally, when this happens, you'll want to completely replace the speaker surround (the outer ring that allows the speaker coil and cone to travel in and out, usually made of rubber or foam rubber). This isn't necessarily super difficult, it just takes some time, skill and patience, if you want to avoid messing up the speaker and sound from it.


Inspect and repair your existing speaker:


1) Measure:


a) the diameter of your speaker cone (outer edge of the angled piece that goes inward toward the center coil) and the


b) diameter of the speaker housing (the metal "frame" part the speaker surround glues to, which is usually where the speaker mounting holes are located).


Note
whether the area on the speaker cone where the surround connects to is flat or angled.


2) Ordering: You'll want to purchase the new speaker surround to match the similar material you've already got, as close as possible to the exact dimensions you measured in either flat or angled for mounting to the speaker cone.


SpeakerWorks.com tends to be a bit more expensive than others than can be found online, and they will normally have what you need. Their speaker surround repair kits normally come with instructions, surround, glue and a little brush. I found hunting around can save 50% or more.


3) Gluing: Get yourself some Aleene's Tacky Glue (online or in craft stores), and make sure you don't use too much or too little, applying in a uniform coat on one surface, then applying gentle pressure to get the surfaces to stick, and allow it to dry completely for 24 hours.


IMPORTANT: This can be tricky, so be patient, or you're buying a new speaker. If you don't feel comfortable, take it to be repaired properly.


Typically, you'll want to start gluing the new speaker surround to the outer portion of the speaker cone, either on the underside or inside, as it was with the prior surround. Make sure it's centered, applying just enough glue with a brush to insure it holds and you can still slide everything around slightly into proper position. Gently move the speaker in and out to make sure nothing is rubbing. Allow this to dry for a full 24 hours, and do NOT attempt to glue the surround to the housing until after the cone glue is completely dry.


Now, it's at least 24 hours later, you can do the same thing by applying an even layer of glue to the surround (or onto the frame) to complete the new surround replacement. Apply light pressure to make sure it's centered, again gently moving the speaker in and out to make sure nothing is rubbing. Allow this to dry for 24 hours, just like before.


I know, impatience makes this difficult, but then you don't want to be doing this all over again by trying to move too quickly. Worse yet, you can end up completely destroying your speaker cone.


The nice thing about that tacky glue is is holds well and allows you to position things for a while before it sets. Just remember to allow the proper drying time, which is always way longer than the dry glue you can see.


Remember to defer to a professional repairman if you do not feel comfortable doing these repairs yourself.

I hope this helps!

I have a rubbermaid glue-gun. I'd like to know how to insert a new glue stick. I tried and it doesn't seem to 'click-in' properly.


im not sure what model rubbermaid glue gun you have, for most there is a hole in the back and you just slide the glue stick in

Missing cone cover for floor standing infinity speakers


Those cone covers are important because they distribute the audio of the driver over a wider range. The defect will not cause further troubles nor will it get worse. Most people are capable of repairing them yourself. If you lost the old cone a replacement is necessary. You will need preferably the part number off the back of the speaker to get a replacement. Carefully measuring the diameter of the cone according to where the old glue shows it was attached will also get you the part. Just use Elmer's White glue to reattach. It get's tacky after a few minutes and the cone should sit there and dry for a few hours after replacement. Check for speaker repair parts online. You will find bunches of suppliers.

How do u disassemble the jl 12w7, the cone is stuck


if the cone is stuck, it is possible because the voice coil over-heated. There is really no way to disassemble the speaker without re-coning it. The thing you can do is manipulate the cone with your fingers gently, and it might release. Be careful. hope this helps.

When I push my subwoofer cone its work and when i release it stops working. how can i fix this speaker? the make of this is 12'' 1210 Watts Infinity sub.


Looks like a broken copper braid that links the speaker terminal to the cone (from there on it goes to the coil which is underneath the cone).

Check the speaker connection terminals (near the magnet), you will notice that each terminal has a copper braid wire going from that terminal to the speaker cone.

Inspect both braid wires carefully at each end (near the speaker terminal and near the speaker cone), there will either be some damage to the braid at one or more of these four locations or the braid could be actually broken at any of these spots.

The braid can actually be resoldered at the point where it's damaged or broken - this task will require good soldering skills, mainly because this kind of braid wires are difficuld to solder (they are a bit difficult to clean because of their structure and solder won't attach itself well to oxydized copper), but also because some speaker cones are made of plastic which may melt if you overheat it with a soldering iron.

Besides that, when resoldering is being done, only a very short portion of the braid should be wetted with solder because the solder point will become rigid when the solder cools down, and the braid needs to remain very flexible when the speaker operates (if it's too rigid or too short, damage to the speaker cone could occur or the braid could get broken again when the speaker will be playing at a loud volume).

Hope you can have it repaired, it can be done at home, but there are also speaker repair shops where you can get it done (i'm not sure about the prices though).

Anyway, the alternative is to replace the speaker itself.

I need picture or instruction on how to take apart a Alpine 12 inch type X subwoofer?


First pry off the rubber gasket. Then take a razor and cut out the cone, cut as close to the outer edge of the surround as you can. Then snip the tinsel leads connecting the cone to the spider. Then take your knife and cut out the spider. The cone and voice coil should now slide out. The rest of the speaker can be takin apart with a screwdriver and hammer.

Now hide from the owner of the speaker, he will probably want to hurt you.
