Changing a subwoofer on a party speaker.

Hey guys. So my subwoofer has recently started making that horrible crackling noise on my LG OM5560. It may seem like a silly question but would it be possible to just change the subwoofer out for a better one, or would I be better doing somthing else. Any suggestions will be welcome. Thanks.

Many systems build the Amplifier, and Power Supply, into the Subwoofer. If that were the case, then the answer is no.

If the amplifier is elsewhere is elsewhere, then all you have to do is to match the Impedance

Okay thanks for the answers.

It matters not if the amp is built into the subwoofer opr not. A faulty speaker can always be replaced if the replacement is the same physical size, power handling capacity and impedance.

Allanwood is, in essence, correct.

However modern speaker cabinets are not necessarily designed for easy access and the Speaker Mounts may be specific to the speaker itself which may not be available on the open market
