first time user-this site looks great,from what i've seen so far!!
i hope someone can help
i just picked up a pair of used polk s-8 speakers
they sounded great at first,and are in mint cond-but
after 10 minutes of listening,i heard one of the passive
woofers distort badly
upon closer inspection,there are 2 slits in the driver-they
look like they were made with a razor,because they are barely noticable,and about 3 inches long
well,i had this brilliant idea
i removed the passive woofer,taped the slits from behind,
and then applied a liberal amount of caulking over the tape
this was all done last night,so i am now ready to test it out
(i called polk parts,and a replacement passive is 36.00)
i thought i'd try it this way first,to see if it will hold when the volume goes up for extended periods
has anyone tried this before?am i wasting my time trying to
seal the slits from behind?any help would be greatly appreciated!!
