I just got a pair of used Monitor 5s in today. Great cosmetic condition and they had been listed as tested and fully functioning. Apparently a reliable ebay seller....even though the speakers were wrapped in newspaper and burlap bags....my cat loves the burlap. I was anxious to report on the differences between a series one and series two 5, but the midrange on one of the speakers is not functioning properly. There is a small amount of sound coming from it, but not much. The tweeter seems fine (until I pulled the fuse) to make sure the mid was producing some sound.
I thought someone posted a question about fixing a mid, but I can't find any. Suggestions please. This could be my first speaker surgery.
