Default Ripped my lead on my level 3 :(

Well A few days ago i noticed my sub noticeably quieter than normal but didn't think to check it...Then yesterday I pulled it out the box and found this violently ripped off lead...







Is there any way to fix this without sending it in? The lead is frayed too much to solder back as is, but I was wondering about buying a replacement from TeamPSI and resoldering. Is it difficult to do? and is it possible without taking the cone off? I know I would take the Dustcap off but are they just soldered in there?
Just as a BTW....I touched the lead back to the solder joint and the length seems noticeably shorter than the other one that is still intact. Like the other one has slack in it as shown in the pic but the ripped one almost runs in a straight line to the solder joint. Not saying that its anyones fault or anything but just wondering if that was more than likely the cause.

and I had to put my type argh back in
FML....

Did you even read the post?

The lead is frayed too much to solder back as is, but I was wondering about buying a replacement from TeamPSI and resoldering.

Looks like it didn't quite have enough slack. You can cut it back past the frayed area and sister some more lead onto it (solder them side by side) but don't overlap too far or it could cause the tinsel to wear out faster. I remember seeing small crimp rings designed for non-insulated wires that are about 1/8" wide. You could get one of those and crimp it onto the new leads then solder the crimp joint to give it added holding power.

Yes Mom I did read the post. From the looks of it it is repairable. Is that not what I stated? Or did I need to be more descriptive? i.e. solder small lead to tinsel lead and then solder that to the terminal.

Where could I get a small lead from? Teampsi?
And how should I go about soldering it? Just butt them together and solder?

no, that is how you get tinsel slap, and the lead wont be as strong.

OP You'll find that when you put a solder iron on that lead it will start to come together. (it will start to harden)

You can add what you need and solder from side of terminal. The felt pads that are on the cone are there to help with tinsel slap.

Silvercookie may I ask how many subs have you built? Recones? Not to sound like an ass.
