    Default Polk Monitor 5's have a problem

    I have been enjoying my Monitor 5's for a few months now and have noticed that they were making a strange sound on even low and medium listening levels that gets worse as the volume is increased.

    If I put a little pressure on the cone while playing, the rattling sound subsides and almost disappears.

    I took the 6 1/2 inch driver out to see if I could find the source of the offensive sound, and noticed that the cone not attached to the spider.

    I was wondering if this could be repaired, and if so, how do I, A NOVICE, repair such a problem.

    Would a simple glueing of the cone and spider together solve the problem?

    I love my Monitor 5's and will not get rid of them in any event.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Don't waste your time trying to glue it. Check out ebay for a nice used replacement driver. What model # driver is it MW65_ _?
