View Full Version : Monitor 7 speaker sounds muffled
09-04-2004, 06:16 PM
Okay, I just replaced the midrange drivers in my Monitor 7s. One speaker is beautiful - crisp, clear, wonderful sound. The other one sounds like it's under a pillow. There's no specific tone that sounds "out," but in comparison to the other it sounds distinctly muffled.
What do I need to do? Thanks in advance for your help!

Check the tweet. sounds like its shot to me...if it is you can pick up an orig sl2000 over in the FM. Just bagged a MINTY pair of Monitor 10 on ebay for 50 duckets cuz the guy said one sounded muffeld..$30 quick replacement on the tweet and sounding nice.
Before you go around buying tweets...
Switch the tweeters and if the muffled sound follows the tweeter, it is the tweeter.
However, if the muffled sound stays with the same speaker, it is the crossover.

I had a feeling that might be it. I'll go swap them between the speakers and see if I've also swapped the problem.
Thank you very much! This is a wonderful forum!

Tweeter it was. I'll call for a pair (no point replacing only one) on Tuesday.
Yep, the new Polk replacements are WORLDS better.

Free second day shipping???
Hmm. I think they forgot to tell me that part when I ordered my midrange! I got the discount okay, but the shipping bit seems to have gone by the wayside.
Thanks for the info!
