I don't think those are rebuildable. How about turn the bass down?

there is no way to rebuild a sub that I know of. your best bet is to buy a new subwoofer that can handle more wattage. also, alot of people don't know this, but if you don't put enough power to a subwoofer, you can blow it that way to. just fyi

You can rebuild subs but as far as I know you can only do that with competition subs.

For the future:

Take a sub's RMS rating (Figure.. 80-330), then give it roughly +20% to +25% more wattage then it needs. Never go below, and never go way above - pushing 1200 watts at a 340 watt sub will blow it. Peak power, dont ever go by peak power - that's what it can absolutely peak on a hard hitting song before it blows over time.

yea so i had a alpine amp that put out 300 watts rms @ 2 ohms and i had a sub rated at the same thing! and i had the amp set 2 normal! and it jus blew yesterday! and i could hear when i listened to it that it couldnot go past like 19 on the stereo. nd i never went past. nd it jus blew for no reason!
