I have a Jamo i300 system (2 satellite speakers+1 subwoofer+iPod dock). Recently it started making these weird rattling noises on high bass. I opened up the sub/amp unit and the foam was breaking/rotting away and getting stuck between the driver and the speaker mesh/grill cloth. So when the driver of the sub moves, it rattles against the broken pieces of foam and makes that noise.

How can I replace/fix this? And, the mesh on the speaker is fixed, so I would have to cut it open to remove the driver/cone (the screws of it are behind the mesh).

This is a common problem with old subwoofers and even with newer cheap subwoofers--foam surrounds rotting away. What you could do is remove the mesh, remove as much of the foam as you possibly can, clean the surrounding surface, and apply a new rubber surround. Just search the web for subwoofer surrounds of the diameter of your sub, order it, and it shouldn't be to hard to apply it with an adhesive. And the new rubber surround won't rot away.
