I switched the left speaker with the right speaker and the same speaker still has distortion. I have the speakers connected to a Pioneer sc-07 bi-amped.
Any ideas what's wrong and what repair options exist? The distortion is extremely distracting.
Thanks for the help!
Remove the mid horn and use a ohm meter on it and write down the value. Now do the same on the good speaker. Call Bob Crites and tell what you have written down and what the bad RF-62 is doing.
He will tell you what to check on the cross over to see if it is bad or you just fried a diaphragm in the horns driver. Have a party and turn them up TOO loud for too long??? If you are "LUCKY"
you just have a loose speaker wire connection. I bet it's either the cross over is going bad and or the bad cross over has hurt the diaphragm in the horn. What amp or AVR do you use on them?
