Question about Car Audio & Video
Sorry to burst your bubble, but you CAN'T rebuild the coil, for a multitude of reasons. It's THEORRETICALLY possible, but pragmatically IMpossible. Trust me, I know. Yes, your speaker is glued together (with VERY strong glues. When you dismantle a speaker you have to replace many parts including the surround and spider...). With that said.... There ARE shops that can repair speakers (and, no, they generally don't handwind coils...), but they are far and few and pretty expensive. A base model sub like that would't be economical to repair. I don't know where you're at, but the only one I know of is "The Circuit Shop" in Grand Rapids, MI. feel free to google them and call for a quote.

I live outside the us, and we sometimes rebuild our subs when they are blown. what you need is a solvent like accetone to soak the glue holding the outer suspention to the frame and the outer side of the spider. after the solvent does its stuff, the glue will soften an you can gently pull at the edge of the suspention and spider lifting it away from the frame. you will need a hot soldering iron to desolder the pigtail wires that connect to the terminal. and then just lift out the whole cone/coil assembly! but as far as rewinding the coil is concerned you have to observe the impedience of the winding you are puting on, and you have to get some type of glue that can hold the windings in place under the heat produced during playing of the sub, also glues to reattach the spider and suspention to the fraim. in conclusion, it isnt imposiable to diy but it will take some effort in finding the right adhesives and prob isnt worth the trouble for a low end subwoofer!
