Steps to remove the cylinder speaker can

Steps to remove the cylinder speaker can

1. Remove the speaker from the cabinet

The speaker has some screws that hold it to the cabinet that you need to use the screwdrivers to unhook the screws within it. After removing the screws, displace the speaker from the cabinet using any tool or use your hands with some energy to displace it. Check if the speaker has a ring underneath since some speakers have it containing wires that you need to be keen with.

2. Remove the current foam it contains

Using acetone and a piece of cloth or cotton wool, rub the surface with the foam until it goes off. And if it fails, add more acetone, give it some time to stay on the surface, then later rub it with more energy. After removing the foam, there is a ring that you will need to remove too.

At this point, you need to use the screwdriver to take it off from the surface. While removing the ring, you get to damage the cardboard that you have to replace. After that, remove the foam below it by adding more acetone and soak, then rub it lightly.

3. Make a circle to show the new place for the foam

Ensure you draw a circle at the surface to show the new place to fix the new foam after removing the cylinder. Consider using any round tool that will guide you to make a good circle.

4. Shim the voice coil

Remove the dust cap by cutting it carefully at the center of the speaker cone with a sharp object. Ensure you are careful to avoid damaging the voice coil of the speaker. Shim, in this case, brings the label sheets that you need to get the accurate size for a fine surface for the foam when fixing back the speaker.

5. Apply glue on the speaker cone

It is good to apply glue on the surface of the speaker cone to dry, make sure the surface is clean, and stick two parts for a good period.

6. Get new foam to fix on the speaker cone

Get new foam to fix on the speaker cone

Carefully secure the new foam to fix on the surface after applying glue. When fixing the foam, ensure you are close to the surface so that you can put it right in its place such that after sticking it with the glue, you are again removing it from the place. When adjusting the position, ensure you move it carefully to maintain the uniform circle.

After fixing the foam to its exact place, tap every part of the foam to ensure the glue on the board soaks inside it. Apply some piece of masking tape on the foam after soaking the glue in it to enhance the stickiness of the foam. Apply the tape thrice on the foam until you feel that everything is tight with your hands.

7. Give the glue time to stick to the foam.

The time you will leave the glue, tape, and foam depends on the amount of glue you used in the process. If you apply more glue, you need to dry the glue more time.

8. Remove the tape from the foam.

When removing the tape, be gentle and release it carefully to avoid yanking it off, which destroys the foam’s surface. Consider peeling the tape on its side but not directly on top of the foam. Repeat the process with all the pieces of tape you applied to the foam; if you remove the tape and peel off with the foam, you need to fix a new tape so that the foam sticks.

9. Fix a new ring

Apply glue again at the edge of the speaker to fix a new ring, therefore, lift the foam gently and fix the ring. If the speaker has cardboard, you need to replace it too, but if it lacks, then you are good to go.

10. Allow the glue to dry

With this step, you need to give a whole night for the glue to dry properly such that you need to turn the speakers upside down and fix the speakers using cable ties to tighten them. After drying the glue, you can now remove the shim and reglue the dust.

11. Fix back the speaker to its place

If you are removing the ohm cylinder speaker to check for an issue, you can fix everything back in place.


The article above shows that removing the ohm super cylinder speaker can determine that there are many steps you need to follow since a speaker has several wires that connect to produce the sounds. You need to be keen on each step to avoid destroying some system parts.
