I got the Rti12's last year when Newegg were getting rid of them. One of the speakers arrived damaged, (it vibrates at low frequencies,
can also testify to this, he apparent has the same problem as i do). Since i'm currently in the states, i decided to call Polk about the speaker and they are sending me a replacement 71/2 woofer (hopefully that's the culprit).
My problems are as follows:
1. how do i troubleshoot which of the 3 woofers has a problem without damaging the speaker further?
2. how do i safely detach the internal wires connected to the woofers?
The rep i spoke to said to bring the woofer out, connect the woofer via speaker wire to the avr at a low volume and "i'll be able to tell" which woofer is bad. I have never done this before is it really going to be that apparent?
i'll appreciate any tips/ preventive measures to take to resolve this.
