Search in the area for a shop that recones speakers, you should be able to get the surround (rubber part) replaced.

Where are you located? Perhaps I can direct you to such a place.

How to replace rv roof ac?


I will assume that you are aware of the fact that both upper ( unit on roof ) and lower control unit ( inside at ceiling ) will need to be replaced. That obviously adds to cost, instead of just replacing upper unit with same as what's there. Be sure to shut power off at breaker panel to start with. There is only 4 bolts, usually 1/4" with either 3/8" or 7/16" head, That holds the upper to lower. Once you remove them, and any extra screws that may go into ceiling from lower unit, the 2 pieces are separate. Disconnect any wiring ( mark wires if thermostatically operated) from lower unit, and if it's not ducted in the ceiling there will be ducting attached from upper to lower unit usually with flanges that have screws in them. 3 Philips screws where it attaches at base of upper unit, and that should drop down. That should be it. Now just lift unit on roof up and off. May take a bit off effort as some stick pretty good. Be sure to watch if you have a rubber roof that the rubber isn't ripping. I have had some that the person who installed it used some sealant at gasket surface, and had to very carefully lift and pry it apart, but as I said, if you find same, watch rubber for ripping. No need to apply anything to gasket if roof is clean, just set new one down over hole, even it up and draw down from inside with new ceiling assembly and bolts equally. Only compress gasket to approx 1/2 it's original thickness when tightening down, do not squish it.

I have a blown Diaphram, and want to replace with new one. How do i gain access/open the enclosure. Its the cabinet with that hammertex material.


Almost all of these speakers now are accessed the same way... through the front.

You will USUALLY find a few small screws through the metal grille work. There MAY be some at the midway point of top to bottom as well. The grilles OFTEN "tuck" into grooves at the sides. With the screws out you usually have to pry out the grilles. Often there are rubber channels over the edges... note how they go on for reassembly. Pry out the grille at the center of the top OR use a hook with a handle to distort the grille outward so the edges come out of the grooves.

You will have some frustration getting the grille in and out... I do on mine...

Sound went limp i think it the crossover


Define limp. No highs or no volume?

Logically, what one thing would affect both speakers? Logically, how would a crossover failure mute anything but the tweeter?

So, what happened just BEFORE this problem appeared?

I'd look at the electronics.

Repairing BOSE 901 IV series speakers


The grille will come off if you try to pry it off. Then, unscrew the bad driver. Sort of new ones are sold on E-Bay for not a lot of money. Install the new driver, secure it with screws, and snap the grille back into place.
