4x woofer issue

Recommended Posts

I needs some help from the woofer repair guru's. On one of my 4x woofers the voice coil has become separated from the spider. My plan was to push the vc back down to where it should be and then use some urethane to glue it back onto the spider but I can't get the vc to go back down. I'd rather not damage it to fix it if I don't have to. It's in good shape with original cloth surround.

Does anybody have any tricks to keep the spider up while pushing the vc down?

Thanks, Harry.

Your plan sounds fine, except for the voice coil bit. Can you tell if it's damaged?

I think the voice coil is ok. I had given the speakers to my brother and he told me it only made a slight popping sound on one bass note at high volume and a soon as he heard he turned it down. I had a listen to it when I got it home and even at high volumes it sounds fine unless it hits that one bass note.

I could just cut the surround and pull it apart but I really want to keep the cloth surround. Maybe I'll cut the dust cap off and shim the coil and then see if I can get the spider to go back to where it belongs.

Is it possible that air leak is reason for popping sound at high volume?

Kimmo,

I thought it could be something like that too but after finding the voice coil was no longer attached to the spider, I knew I was going to have to fix that first. And thanks for bringing this thread back up, I had put the driver on a shelf and basically forgot about it until seeing your post. It's seriously hot where I live today so I think I'll stay in the AC and see if I can fix this.

Thanks again, Harry
