Made some major HT changes and just discovered the woofer is dead on one of my ceilings. The SA-15R-30 is the one that fires on a 30 deg angle.
I don't know if it happened during my old setup or after setting up new.
Old setup was a pair of Legacy Focus SE mains, Paradigm C5 center, Pair of Paradigm SA-15R's for surrounds and these SA-15R-30's for rears.
AVR was Pioneer SC-05 driving all of the speakers except the mains which were driven by a Bryston 14bsst.
The Pioneer runs their MCCAC audio setup.
Mains: Seaton Cat12 self powered
Center: Seaton Cat8 self powered
Same Paradigm surrounds.
Now come to think of it, when I originally ran the Audyssey setup I do not recall the back speaker acting up.
Yesterday after doing some speaker placement tweeking, I ran Audyssey and discovered the one rear ceiling Paradigm only producing highs. The woofer is dead.
Looking into the Denon setup and looking at the specs for the SA-15R-30, the Paradigm Sigs have 4ohm rating but I had the AVR set to 8ohm. Could that have done the damage?
I went up into the attic and checked all connections... wiggled them. No sign of anything burnt out or loose.
Looks like I have to remove it and have a closer look. Unfortunately I purchased these brand new on ebay on 10-29-09 from a private individual so I don't believe warranty is an option.
Is there something on the crossover board I may have blown? Any tips on troubleshooting?
Otherwise I'll be buying a replacement unit.
