I have no money to spend on the Boston Z6s right now, and nor would Robin have the time to work on doorpods for them if I did get a hold of some in time for my competition/car show on Sunday.

When you push (even lightly) on the cone of my mids, they play... when you let off, it stops playing. Both of them in my doors are like this, and I've even drove around with tape holding the cone down, but the tape keeps coming loose, lawl.

I'm just looking for a quick fix, since they're my only speakers and tweets + bass = sounds like ****.

Did anything "happen" when this started occuring? Or did it just quit one day?


PS: You look like you're 12 in that vid.

Not really sure, it could've been like this for months to be honest... I recently took out my 6x9s, so I could've just not noticed it (loud bass and 6x9s might've made up for it).

Seems as if the coil is loose?

kenny doesnt change facial expressions :fyi:

I think the motor is just knocked out of alignmentlawl

How would I go about fixing this, if at all possible? It sounds perfect when I touch the cone, on both of them. They've lasted me for over a year now...

Yea same with me. I spend lots of money on one hobby, then when I get bored I sell all the stuff and move to a new hobby.
