    Default Polk LS70 Woofer distorting

    I have a pair of LS70's. They sounds great except recently, I started hearing a slight (you have to listen for it) distortion in one of the woofers. I narrowed it down to the speaker, not one of the sources. It sounded a bit like inner groove distortion on a record. However, if you lightly tap the woofer, it goes away for a bit.
    Has anyone experienced this? Is this a repair or is it easier to source a new (MW8100?) woofer?

    Thanks!

    If you gently push in on the woofer do you feel and "scratchiness"?

    Yes!

    I hear and feel it when I press on it, where the same woofer on the other speaker doesn't do it.

    Yeah, it's shot. Post a WTB thread for one. Seems like a couple members might have some spares.

    I think I was the only one selling them... had 8 at one time, but they've all been sold. Sorry att, wish I had a few more stashed for you.

    No worries, I'm sure I'll source one.
