I think the woofer is blown...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Yep, I think the woofer to my Onix Ref1s may be blown. I first thought it was the crossovers (since whoever owned it before me got Skiing Ninja crossover upgrades) but the more I inspect, the more I think its the woofer.

  1. The bass is much weaker compared to my other speaker. It doesn't extend as far, nor does it go as deep.
  2. There is buzzing coming from the woofer especially when I'm playing R&B and heavier kinds of music.
  3. If I press on the cone, it rattles inside.
  4. I have already tightened to hex screws around the cone. Rattling still persists.

Before I purchase a replacement, I just want to make sure its the woofer and not the crossovers.

I had the same issue with a pair of speakers and it ended up being the crossovers.

The only way to tell would require you to open both speakers and swap the crossovers.

I think it is easier to swap the drivers. Ugh either way, I have some soldering to do (which I hate). The only reason why I think it's the woofer and not the crossovers is that I hear a scratching noise when I press in the cone.

I think it's because the voice coil melted or is burnt.
