Sorry for the delay, I'm in a horrible battle with Onkyo over my failure prone NR-809 AVR, Anyways...
So I just swapped the the Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the AVR, and the same one is crackling.
I also tried a few different sources and got the same results.
I took the grills off of the speaker in question, it has one large speaker and 1 smaller side firing speaker in the enclosure, I couldn't physically see anything wrong with either of them?
How to I go about diagnosing this further? Does Bose see "Rebuild" kits? Do they offer a "Repair" service? I know these speakers aren't Super Awesome or expensive, but they sounded reasonable well and I have had them for about 25+ years, they have sentimental value, thus I would like to get it fixed.
Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks.
