Kenwood TH-F6 Speaker Replacement

posted Jul 11, 2013, 8:41 PM by Stones River
Less than one year service on this Kenwood Tri-bander and the speaker went south. Very difficult to find a replacement speaker  online. Finally a buddy had some spare parts from an older Kenwood that has a speaker that was the same small size. 1.1" x 0.2".
Lost the small connector from the old speaker and had to improvise and do a little soldering. Also when closing up the case the small speaker wires were difficult to keep from folding up onto the keypad contacts and created some problems for me. Third time is the charm. So if ya have to do simple little project like this, route those little wires so you can save opening the unit back up.
