yes its fixable its a coil, you need to find the place it came of on the board and solder it on, but you would need to see if the pads have been damaged

Check to make sure the pads are shiny metal. If they are dull green material, the pads are damaged. If they are metal, they are good.

Due to how JBL assembles this speaker, dont bother taking the board out. Just remove the front speakers (carefully using a screwdriver to disconnect the connector) and the side diaphrams. Tin the pads and the 1R5 part (called an inductor), then remove the excess solder with a wick. Use a chisel tip soldering iron to solder one side at a time, being careful not to melt the case. Hold it for like 15-30 seconds on each joint so you get a good connection: the reason it failed in the first place was that JBL had cold solder joints.
