It was immediately apparent that the driver had an issue. I hooked the speaker back up and did some additional listening just to try to confirm whether any other drivers had an issue without physically removing them from the speaker.
I took some pictures of the driver after it had been pulled out of the cabinet and before I removed the leads just so I would know which terminal was positive and which was negative.
I had never done this type of test before either, but it was pretty straightforward. The trickiest part on the 703 was removing the front rubber gasket that went around the speakers.
Thanks that makes a lot of sense, what about the internal wires? do you need any appliance to remove them or would it be like a plug and release situation.
