Unhappy What happen to my sub!

Hi,

My old sub-woofer were full of dust and I use Wax to clean it up, after cleaning and let it dry, turn on my player, the subs just sound bad in high volume, it sound like the cone of the sub turn soft and want to break. But when I use my finger knock on it, it is still normal.

question is
1, what happen to my sub!
2, can wax use on sub?
3, if cannot or will spoil it, is there anywhere to fix it?

Don't get your subwoofer cone wet. I think you killed the subwoofer. Time to cry ovet the dead subwoofer. This is going to cost money. Bad idea to try to clean the sub cone with wax. Vacuuming with a soft brush would have been a better thing to do. I don't think there is anything you can do to save the subwoofer.

Sorry.

I don't know what you used to try and clean the subwoofer but most of the spray cleaner/waxes I know of soak into wood or paper. There is some kind of oil in them to add shine and it never dries totaly. My guess is that the stiffness of that driver will never be the same. Oh, maybe a couple of years from now it may get close but that's a long time to wait. If it's a plastic cone driver the oil in the spray can damage the plastic and drying will not help.

my guess is the sub is dead. i know someone else who did this years ago the sub is still dead. i know another friend who tried WD40. that sub is dead too. i feel bad when drivers die. i am usually starving for good drivers here in India.
