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 think it could be time to throw them away ,unless their is any specialist type place close by that can recone them for you ,i have had some success in the past with thin rubber matting that was for repairing a dingy and cutting it round so it fitted then bonding it in with two pack araldite but it sounded a bit muffled to me but the cars owner was happy as he played it so loud he was no doubt tone death
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
I'm assuming you mean the "tinsel" lead going from the connector to the sub cone. In many cases, the wire can be soldered back on. It takes care and patience and you need to be sparing with the solder and prevent it from stiffening the tinsel lead. Otherwise it will tear out again when the sub cones moves out. If the cone itself was damaged when the lead pulled off, you can use silicone sealant to repair it. Again, be sparing with the silicone and allow it 24 hours to set up before trying to operate the sub. If the wire pulled off from the connector terminal, just solder it back on.
a flexible adhesive like clear silicone adhesive will work, just don't glop it on too heavy or it will unbalance the weight of the cone and shorten the life of the sub. Dont use an adhesive that dries to a hard state or it will actually tear the foam more. Let me know if that helped:) Thanks
The little rip on the foam surround can be repaired easily with some pure silcone from a harware store. Make sure it's pure silicone, because the silicone mixtures may deteriorate the foam prematurely. Also, all you're really doing is plugging the hole that the rip makes so that air doesn't leak out and further damage the surround and also affect your sub's performance. You'll need to apply a thin to moderate coat of silicone to the rip, and make sure that some gets into the rip. Do NOT use globs or big lumps. You should apply some silicone to your finger, and carefully apply it to the area. Try not to get too much on the inside/backside of the rip. If you'd rather just get a replacement sub, you should be able to find the raw driver on eBay or at a local MTX dealer.
hi there mate. which foam are you talking about, in the box or on the actual sub? you should be able to remove either to be able to get to the drilling holes. send some photoes if you want to firstname.lastname@example.org and i can have a further look.
