Hello everyone,

I have a three way speaker not a DIY but I am repairing it., I need two new surrounds on the midrange drivers. They seemed to go from okay, to gone in like a week... anyway I have the new surrounds kit coming in the mail now. So to prevent any damage to the speaker I unplugged the midrange but have continued to use the rest of the speaker. So besides the big dip in the midrange will this effect the speaker in a negative way? I don't know exactly what it would do but that's why I am asking those who build and know speakers inside and out.

No. Just ensure the leads that were going to the disconnected drivers are isolated and not touching each other or anything else.
