    Default I need some help trouble shooting a speaker.

    I have a Monitor 15C that maybe in trouble. This afternoon I was listening to music when a pop ended my enjoyment. I have an Onkyo tx nr616 as the receiver. It gave me a check your speaker wires warning. After some process of elimination I have a speaker that is giving me 3.3 to 3.7 ohms of resistance and I am fearing that is a bad sign. Is there something else that I can check? I love this speaker and am disappointed at this development.

    Can you post pics of the speakers? Did you check that no wires are not touching?

    EDIT: Are you talking about the 15C center channel? I was thinking you might had the vintage Monitor 15T's. Sorry....got excited there for a second. lol

    Seems about right to me.

    After some process of elimination
    What process was that?

    I visually checked speaker wires. Not seeing any obvious issues I began removing speakers one by one till the Center channel was found to be the source. I took the wires and checked them closely for kinks, breakage, and continuity. Once I found the wires to be correct I checked the Ohms resistance on the speaker. I have not had this speaker for more then four months. Really sucks that this has happened.

    At what volume level were you listening?

    Try hooking up one of the other speakers as the center channel and see if the problem is still there.

    I would follow F1's advice. If the issue occurs with another speaker, the pop you referred to (if it came from the area of the receiver) could have been a capacitor giving up the ghost.
    Any smell of ozone (burning electrical stuff) along with the pop?

    Thanks to ZLTFUL and F1nut. I got in touch with customer service and replaced the crossover. Great service and now I am back in 7.1 surround heaven.
