Can a blown sub be repaired?
« on: January 25, 2007, 12:58:30 AM »

I killed a subwoofer in my car because it was poorly labelled.   said 300 rms 600 max   wrapped around and there was something covering thre 300 and the max so i assumed it was 600 rms and blow that sucker up.    Is there any way i can repair it?  It is a dual voice coil subwoofer, one of the voice coils is shorted out, the other still works.   the sub makes a grinding noise when you push it in and out now.   

Any ideas?

Don't know anything about it, but I can pretty much bet if there was a way, it'd cost more than the woofer itself.

if it was the rubber surround, there are ways to have it repaired. its just absolutely not feasable to repair a voice coil. i've blown enough subs. the best thing to do is get an extended warranty when you buy the speaker(s).

on the bright side you have a huge, awesomely strong magnet.
