    Default crackling driver in 5r's


    I have a set of polk 5jr's(with radiator) that I just bought for $30. One of the speakers crackles at middle volumes. It is not the tweeter since I disconnected it to make sure. I then have another driver I put it in to make sure, it crackled also.

    Do I have two blown MW6502 drivers or could it be something else.

    It may be a bad driver or damaged crossover component. Did you try swapping parts from the other speaker?
