One of my newton mc 100 speakers distorts badly. *I have taken it apart and wonder about replacing the speaker. *Can anyone recommend a replacement*

- I assume that's the problem. *It's a 3.5 inch speaker. Or would it be easier to pick up a replacement from

eBay

TIA

Step one would be to contact Cambridge Soundworks. Their speakers come with a 10-year warranty. They used to have some of the best customer service around, so they may help you even if you are not the original owner.


Even if they will not replace the speaker, they should be able to tell you the type of driver that this older model speaker used. You can probably still find the exact driver around. I don't think that CSW uses exotic parts.


As you say though, replacing a driver may be more of a pain in the butt than just watching Ebay. Used MC-100's should be plentiful and inexpensive.

Well they weren't too helpful. Customer service said the warranty was for five years, that they could not help me with a replacement driver, and that they wanted to sell me a MC 105 for $75 +s/h. I'd really like to repair what I have. I took it apart but could not find any googleable markings on the speaker. All I can tell is it is a 3.5" square fitting speaker. Any smart folks suggest a replacement. I have had a hard time even finding 3.5" drivers online but perhaps I'm looking in all the wrong places!

TIA

Wow, I guess the old CSW customer service is a thing of the past. They were a class act at one time. Of course, I think the original company has been bought at least once.


You might post a picture of the driver here or in the DIY speaker section. People love a good mystery and some are really good at identifying components from a photo.
