    Default blown speaker?

    I have an old pair of 5b's. Bought them when polk first came out. they were a new company at the time. well my problem is there is no bass or mid coming out of one of my speakers, sound is very low. could it be the crossover? i'm guessing the speaker is blown any help would be great.

    thanks, steve

    I think they have a set of fuses on the back binding post plate. Check that and see if the fuses are good. Also, check for oxidation on the fuse ends and holders.
