Default How do you take apart a Kicker L5?


Hi all, new here. Finally got my account working!

Anyway, I want to ask some of you subwoofer guys, if you know how to take apart a 10" Kicker L5. You know, one of those square speakers kicker has. Somehow, mine threw two of it's wires off, inside of it. I could easily re-attach them, if only I could get to them. I can see them there dangling. And the speaker sounds horrible now, of course. Unfortunately, they speaker is out of warranty as I bought it in 2005. But when it was working, it sounded great! I have been looking over the speaker, and I can see no way to get it apart without damaging it. Anyone know how to do this? Is there some special way?

whelp there is no way to get it apart with out cutting stuff and that would be pointless try using a solider gun solider of course and some needle nose pliers or something and solider it back together thats if you ar talking about the wire on the spider

Ok. Well do yall think that some regular old solder would work on the amount of movement and vibration that the speaker is going to put out? I mean, would the repair last under that kind of strain?

are you talking Electronics solder or Plumbing solder? the plumming deffinatly will not work you could possably do direct leads which is regular speaker wire hooked to the leads only problem with that is that the wire might make a tapping noise if it hits the spider or cone

Hmm. Ok I will be sure to use electronics solder then. However, are yall absolutely sure that the speaker can not be disassembled? Is it pressed on or something? How does Kicker fix them when they are sent back for warranty work?

It isn't worth fixing to be honest.


More then likely when they take it all apart, by tearing it apart and breaking stuff, they just put all new basket and soft parts on the motor.

they are glue on but kicker probably just trashes them and gives you a new one

Yeah you are probly right. They probly just rip off anything still good (or still worth anything) and just trash all the rest. Then recycle the old into the new, and send you some other speaker that they pulled off the shelf.

But er, as for being worth it... hmm. I am kind of on a budget right now as I am still in school and am drawing unemployment. So I think I should figure out a way to fix it. I was just hoping there was someone here who had done it before.

the reason u broke the leads is over excursion and if u just resolder them back on then they going to be even shorter now and will break off easlier then before i would do as nick stated and do direct leads and shrink wrap the solder joints and then wire tie it to the basket to keep them from smacking
