check Amazon for replacement speaker foam kits. Just type in your speaker model followed by repair kit and some should pop up. I replaced my infinity foam a few weeks back with no problems.

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

if you cant see a physical cut or **** in the rubber surround or anywere else you can try to check the wires going from the plug to the actualy speaker itself on the back of the speaker if those are fine then its probably blown if its not that old you can try and contact jl and see if they will replace them i know kicker has some kind of replacement system in play not sure of jl

Dust cover came off of cone on a older JL W3.now it blows alot of air.


The dust cover does not need the flexibility needed at the outer edges of the cone. Clear nail polish often works well for dust covers.

How can i make my jl audio 12w3-d6 into a 4 ohms


it depends if the amp is mono or stereo and if it is bridged. if it is bridged the amp cant handle the speaker the best way is to lower the level on the amp or connect it to only one channel. also you might want to check your ground cable use a thick one and make sure its making good contact with the chassis. this happened to me. luck

Blown subwoofer


"Is there any way to repair voice coil?"

the simple answer is no.

the long answer is you could try contacting the mfg of the sub and see if you can order a new foam ring, cone and voice coil to replace the one you will have to destroy to take it out.
