    Default CS350 Magnet Fell Off

    I posted this over on the speaker forum, but thought this might be a better place for it.

    I unpacked my newly aquired CS350 today. It was in imaculate shape, but it appears that during shipping, the glue let go on one of the MW4850 magnets. It was loose in the box. Since the speaker rides face up, I suspect was just from some gorilla UPS handling.
    The magnet poped back in place, and I am curious if I should order a replacement, or if there is any chance it will work up to par. Should I try to reglue it, or use it for a paper weight? I have not had a chance to hook it up and see if it even works.

    Thanks!

    From the sound of it, the video shielding magnet fell off- just epoxy it back on & call it a day (but try to position it as exactly as you can)... if you put it on top of your TV and notice some discoloration, then you didn't get it placed exactly right.

    The magnet in question was around 2.5" in diameter and about 3/4" thick. It had a hole in it, and what looked like a sleeve protruding forward a bit. I could see where the little drizzle of glue was before. The magnet didn't have a lot of room when I put it back, and it's strong enough to make it tricky to gently place. Does that sound like the video shielding magnet?

    Thanks for the help!

    Yep, that's the bucking magnet and as unc2701 stated, just glue it back on.
