Cross-posting an issue here also from the Denon 2014 Atmos receiver page -
I have a 7.1 Veritas system - 2.3, 2.2, 2.0r, 2.0c - and really like them. Got a new Denon X5200W receiver and was excited to run Audyssey on the system - and it failed. wouldn't even go beyond the sub test. I thought the receiver was bad because the speaker it failed on - a 2.3 - was emitting the test tones correctly, but Audyssey reported that there was no speaker. Denon said to return the receiver... I started reading in this thread and found that my series of Veritas speakers is prone to the "dead woofer" syndrome - and that's what that speaker has - two dead woofers.
So I put the 2.3s in the back and moved the 2.2s on stands to the front - and Audyssey is reporting a phase reversal issue with one of them, and it plays the test tones at about 1/4 volume. Tried reversing the cable, but no dice.
Are these also prone to crossover issues?
Also, is there anywhere that can repair these speaker drivers and crossovers? I'm in the Los Angeles area. I really like the Veritas sound and look... I think they're worth fixing if possible.
