I recently acquired a set of Polk Monitor 7(C?) speakers. When they arrived
I noticed a thud in one of the speakers. I removed the bass radiator and
found the SL2000 tweeter magnet in the bottom of the speaker cabinet.
I inspected both the tweeter magnet and the crossover. There appears to
be no visable damage and thank God the driver and radiator cones are not
damaged. I tried reattaching the tweeter magnet to the housing, but can't
get it centered because of the magnetic force. After hooking up the speakers
I noticed this tweeter is muted and does not sound nearly as
"bright" as the undamaged one. Is this problem fixable or should I file an
insurance claim with the shipping company?
The speakers are 24" x 14" x 10" with beveled cabinet around the grills.
They do not have an external fuse. They weigh 33 lbs. each. The tweeter
is a SL2000 dated April 8, 1988. Serial no's. are 7 48299 and 7 48229.
They have a rosewood plastic laminate finish. Are these speakers Monitor
Monitor 7 or 7C?
If I do have to replace the tweeter is the part still available from Polk?
If I have to replace this one should both be replaced?
Any sugguestions on how to reattach the tweeter magnet correctly?
How do I go about testing the speaker for additional actual damage?
How would you procced?
