410$ plus shipping to have JL fix it for you or I can sell you a brand new sub with full factory warranty for about $ 475 shipped to your door

JL will replace everything but the magnet and basket and you still wouldnt have a warranty
or i can get you into something better for about 275 - 325 per sub

How do you fix a tear on a jl audio w6 12


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 2 Kenwood 12" Subs and the outer foam edge


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

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

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

My wire got pulled off my sub how can i fix it


Hello gatmanfromda,

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.

Hope this helps.

I got a lil tear on the foam under my 12' alpine sub by where the terminals are...how do i patch it up or with wut??


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

I have a little rip on the subs ring


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.

Placing sub in box


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 ajd_pimp@hotmail.com and i can have a further look.

cheers,
adam
