    Zane, need help with my rockford sub

    Alright, i have a rf hx2 power dvc 12". and i was listening to it the other day and i noticed a tapping sound when the bass notes would hit. So i took out the box and took out the sub, and noticed that the yellow roll spider has come off. Not completly but half way around. What do i do to fix it. Please help

    Is this break on the outside of the spider or towards the center where the cone meets the spider? If the latter is your trouble, you have likely pushed the woofer beyond its excursion limits and damaged the motor assembly. In that case, there is little to repair, Otherwise, general All-Purpose silicone works great, Usually less than $5 at any hardware store. Simply apply a thin film of the silicon to the trouble area- let cure at least 24 hours and then install and play at low volume for about an hour to break things in again. Should be good to go then, unless you do have motor assembly damage such as I indicated above.

    take it easy,

    There really isn;t any damage, just that the spider has come off at the basket, not where the cone meets, but thanks for all your help, i will address the problem right away, i really didn't want to go thru the trouble of sending it out to the company cuz that would tak eway to long and i cant survive....
    Thanks for all your help
    Your the best
