I'd meant to send Jeff a thank-you email, but since he is now responding on this thread I thought I'd post it here.
Thanks, Jeff! And thanks to the folks in your service department!
Good morning all.
Jeff i have a HGS18B6 and a HGS15B6 both are giving me a 60hz buzz/hum to the woofer with the power cable being the only thing pluged in.. I'm looking to get the HGS 18 fixed.
please let me know if you think it is something thats needs to be shipped in or if its something that i can fix with velodyne provided me the needed parts. im currently looking to know what it will cost me. My wife is pregnant and incharge of the finaces...... so im guessing i will have to sale some of my audio toys to pay for this.
Thanks for your time.
I am the owner of CHT-10R subwoofer. Since some time now it has been producing wierd noise during playing especially when movie with low level frequency bass is on. I don't know what english word use to discribe the noise properly but "farting" is what I hear ;-).
I checked the biggest polish audio video forum and find some information about cables that can went loose inside and touch the speaker. I tried to open the sub but after removing the metal plate with amplifier I found "plastic case' which looks as if it couldn't be removed. Can anyone help me with this? Is it a way to get inside, behind the plastic thing? The noise I am talking about is getting out from behind that plastic thing inside the wooden cabinet.
Please see picture and forgive my English if it is not precise enough.
Servo 1200, manufactured 10/13/89. It's been a great unit all these years, until a few months ago it suddenly distorted severely (haven't used it since). The cone's edge has a tear of about 3 inches; I assume that's likely the issue. Is it worth having the cone re-edged? There seem to be quite a few stories about servo going out in these units, and no replacements available, so just want to make sure this unit isn't so old that it doesn't make sense investing in it. Can't complain... not too many things that last 20 years!
Thanks- Mike Jacoubowsky
Greetings all! New guy here. Had a question that I hope someone here can answer. Trying to find out if I need to look for a new place to take some gear to be serviced.
I had a Velodyne F-1200 since 1996-1997 time frame. Worked very well for me up until about a year ago. The problem was sound cutting out, and coming back in. You could hear it going out, and when you messed with the volume dial on the back, it was static-y, and eventually output went down to nothing. It was hooked up to the rca input/outputs to perfectly working pre-amp/amp set up.
I took it to a (somewhat) local audio shop who I had bought some B&W bookshelfs from. He had certifications to fix stuff and said he could take a look at it for me. After opening it up, he said that there was nothing he could do to fix it, and said he would dispose of it for me. The shop is over an hour away, so I let him do with it whatever he was gonna do.
Does this sound like a reasonable outcome, considering the symptoms and age of the sub? In hindsight, I probably should have called Velodyne myself before doing anything, but the past is the past. I was just wanting to hear some thoughts before I took a few pieces of spare equipment down for servicing.
Thanks in advance for any reply's!
