You might think repairing car speakers is pointless, but you can potentially salvage them. However, it’s important to know when it’s worth it to make the repairs and when it’s time to simply replace them. It comes down to cost versus benefit, and that’s a decision our team can help you with.
How to Tell Your Speakers Are Damaged
Fuzzing, hissing, static … these are all signs your speakers aren’t what they used to be. Rattling, popping or lack of vibration are also evidence your speakers have blown or become disconnected. If you’re having difficulty diagnosing which speaker or speakers are causing problems, bring your car to our shop and we can help.
How it Happens
Maybe the speaker received more power than it was capable of handling and wires or internal components burned or melted. Maybe the cone has moved out of position. Maybe speaker failed simply due to age.
When to Re-cone
Repairing is also known as re-coning. This process involves removing the voice coil, surround and cone and replacing them.
It’s possible to buy a kit and do the work yourself, but in many cases, it requires in-depth knowledge of a car’s electrical system. Most professionals recommend against DIY work for this type of job, especially if the speakers are vintage or expensive.
