There are 2 options to solve this problem.

1. You can glue the tear. In all honesty, Elmers glue works rather well. Unfortunately, car stereo subs have an extreme workload, and it will not hold up very well. This is a better fix for speakers with less excursion.

2. Refoam kits are available online. eBay is littered with them, both for new & old w6 models. Also, www.reconingspeakers.com has some available.

I have a 13w7 and i am wondering if its possible to find the replacement foam around the top of the speaker. mine has a tear in it and i find it hard to believe that the speaker would be wasted because of...


Hello,
The foam is molded, you can not remold / repair
If it is a small tear you can repair with a bit of rubber cement. Eventuly it will fail and more will tear causing the sub to sound very bad

Jl audio 1000/1 problems


Hello l_miller36,

Depending on how much you paid for the amp on eBay, and how well you like the JL product, it may very well be worth the money to get it fixed. As for the wallet damage, you'll have to ask JL or one of their dealers. But, since the Slash2's routinely sell for over $1,000, I'd estimate the cost to be pretty high.

First, I'd send an email to JL Audio tech support and see if they have a "flat-rate" repair option or if they can give you an estimate of the repair costs. My second option would be to talk to a local car audio shop that does component level repairs. In the first case, you'd get exact replacement parts and whatever warranty JL gives on repairs. Not so with the local option, but it would most likely be less expensive.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Jl 500/1 no output audio


You can send it to JL Audio and they will fix the output stage you toasted and will also perform any mods or upgrades to bring it up to spec. This will set you back $ 180.00 plus shipping cost to send it to JL. I know it's expensive but you damn near get a whole new amp to rock your world. mark..
