Is this car speaker knackered?

Post by udaman » Sat Dec 15, 2018 8:49 pm

Hi all

Unfortunately I don't have the means to test it at the moment.... Just wondered if anyone can tell me by looking whether this speaker is dead or still usable?

Cheers

As you said without testing it there is no way you can tell if it is any use or not, although it does look like it has seen better days.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

to be fair if you used double sided tape and re stuck it down any distortion is likely to be similar to the resonance when attached to a door card or parcel shelve

No. Unless the voice coil is open circuit (meter test for continuity required) but if it 'makes sound' then it's ok - although hi-fi purists would call me a luddite.
sent from my laptop using my fingers - because we REALLY need to know where it's come from.....

Across the connections dab a supply from a normal AA battery it’s only 1.5 volts certainly the bass section you will see move and the tweeter will make a sound ! If you have no meter just a dab.
