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!

Started buzzing sound like blown


Use an Ohm meter and test at the speaker. On the speaker magnet there will be an Ohm rating (Usually 4Ohms). The reading could be between 2-6 and you should be OK. Anything outside this range may cause problems. Another to look ta is the surround of the speaker. This the part that connects the cone to the frame. Make sure it is not torn and is still flexible. There are not any user replaceable parts, so if they are blown it is time to get some new speakers.

It is rip in to little piecies


It may not be worth the expense, but if the cone or surround are torn, they can be replaced by a speaker repair shop. I just had a pair of JL 10W6's re-edged (the foam surround around the cone deteriorated after 11 years), and the repair cost $100 for the pair, including parts.

The foam surround on my subs are cracked and torn. I need them repaired. Would it be more ideal to buy new subs or get these w7's repaired?


wow i won't throw them away or anything like that. You can always go down to your local JL Audio dealer to see how much to refoam the subs. Lot cheaper then buy new ones..... That's the way i would go.. Hope this was helpfull

Does mmats sell the rubber surround for a 12 inch procast? one of my procast needs a new rubber. Do i have to sent it in or can i fix it at home/


You can do it yourself if your handy. Lots of places out there selling them. Not too bad a job. Takes some patience gettiog the old one off.. If its really rubber and not foam, it'll come off in one peice. Have to be carefull the get the cone centered when ya glue the new one in. If you decide to tackle it get one with instructions and/or a good web search on the surround replacement.

Seals around speakers are broekn and gone!


Hello kagato_morri,

While it's certainly possible to replace the surrounds, whether it's economical to do so is another question. For very high-end speakers, there are often "repair kits" available to replace spiders, cones, surrounds and for some, even the voice coils. But such parts are usually not available for your run-of-the-mill speakers.

If the speakers are otherwise in good condition, and you are willing to spend some time with them, you can use an adhesive foam to construct a new surround. A product called "shoe goo" makes a good permanent bond. It's a super strong rubber cement and will hold up under the stresses of the moving speaker cone.

Hope this helps.

Contact MMats Pro Audio at 561-842-0600. They can re-cone it for you, or sell you the re-cone kit. If that does not work for you, contact MWA Speaker Parts in Tuscon - 520-647-7193. They can sell you a re-cone kit, or they can direct you to a speaker repair center near you. A third option would be to contact Sundown Audio in Troutman, NC. They may be able to re-cone it for you.
