I just bought a pair of mirage v2s and was waiting for my receiver to ship out to me. Like a complete moron I wanted to see what the new material on the tweeter dome head felt like. Haveing no idea (due to the latest in speker technology and materials) how delicate they were I pushed in the tweeter cone. Now that your done screaming at me how dumb I am(mind you I have not even heard one note of delicious music come out of them yet...Idiot I am) Heres the fix.
Tried a magnet no good
Tried a small pin to penetrate it and the pull it out but didnt have the heart to poke a hole in it.

THIS WORKED THOUGH== Wrapped a pencil in electrical tape. (Warmed it in my hands a liitle first to make it a little stickier and to make it not stick to much) placed the taped pencil point on the damaged part of the speaker ,rolled it ever so gently to get it to stick and gave a quick but controled tug then pulled it very slowly to get it the rest of the way out. Whallllaaa it worked. Only a very small indent was left from where I tried with the pin. Stilll havent as of this writing heard them yet. Cant wait.

How can replace the speaker the bass sound is broken


Dear Rob,
Really Thankful for the detailed description for the Speaker Repair.
It really helped me a lot. I have a unusual situation here with me. I have dissected the whole console and found the outer band of the speaker has just come off....have attached photos to make it clear. does the outer speaker cone will make a difference or i will have to replace the speakers itself.....when i checked pressing the speaker down and played the distortion had gone....but while playing without holding the distortion would come back....Hope you can help me in this situation....Thanks in Advance..... 714812a0-935e-4f95-922e-50c6ba281b9c.jpg 36e62701-6370-491a-a317-a11c69cc9525.jpg

I can't remove the speaker


Remove the protecting grill in front. Check if the cone is still connected to the rubber band. If not, remove the screws around the speaker. Open the casing itself. Do not forget the screw in the middle of the battery compartment. Remove the bottom cover. Disconnect the 2 wires on the speaker and take out the speaker. It will come out with the plastic protection around it. Looking at the cone now, push up the Carton cone and keep it in place by putting some tissue paper or small cloth underneath. Clean the cone first. Use some rubber cement on the outer edges of the cone and press the rubber back on the cone. Let it dry for an hour and then remove the tissue / cloth, so the cone goes back to its normal position.You can use some extra rubber (those pre-glued strips that you would use to fix a bicycle tire) to make it extra strong. Remount everything back in place and voila....it works again!If your cone is not damaged, the casing most probably does not seal good anymore. Tighten all screws a little more and use plastic electrical tape all around to seal all joints. The bass is produced inside the casing itself and pushed out via a horn. If it is not closed off well, your bass sounds grumpy.

I have a 1000 w dual coil and a 1000 w amp do I just hook them up positive and negative just how they are both sides just how I think it would


Hello
In most speakers, either (+ve) or (-- Ve) will be mared on its soder leads. If there is no such markings, just look whether there is a red or black spot of paint. If there it is, red colour paint mark terminal side is (+ve) and black marked terminal side is (-- ve). If there is no such markings also, take a torch cell [ a new one], contact its positive side to one terminal of the speaker, and its negative to other terminal win a piece of wire. Just touch once. Look the movement of the cone paper. For one side connection the cone paper will push out and for the reverse it will be drawn in. Note the position when the cone paper pushes out. Now note which terminal is connected with battery positive. This terminal is the positive connection terminal of the speaker. OK

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.

The speaker part is pushed inside


you can use a vacuum to **** out or use a pin to puncture cone and push out slowly, your best option is something with suction to pull cone out.

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.

Blown sub, butIdon't know why


if you use a right channel on one coil and a left on the other different frequencies are going in different directions in each channel thus blowing a coil or badly damaging it-z

LCW-0120 Labtec speaker polarity


I am assuming that you already know which wires go to which speaker and all you need to know is which one is negative and which one is positive. Here is one way to find out. If you can access the speakers at all or at least see the cones, it will be easy.
Take a small 1.5v battery and connect it to the wires in question, connect one end to the positive(+) and the other to the negative (-) side of the battery, don't do it for a long time, just enough to observe movement on the speaker cones. Observe the cones of the speakers, if the cones get pushed or moves out, take note of the polarity of the battery because now you know which is which. Now if the cones, move inward or it gets sucked in when you apply voltage, then it's backwards.

Kef Q Series iQ1 problem


You may have broken the cross over, which is fixable by an service agent, or you may have damaged the voice coil in the mid driver. you can check this by sofly pushing the main driver in, making sure that you done push the cone, if there is a lot of resistance then you have damaged the voice coil, and you will need to replace the driver.
