Carver Speaker Discussions and Questions
Not saying It was wrong for the last owner to do what he did, but kinda crappy not telling you about his little patch job.
Being in construction for 30 yrs I've seen some of the wildest things done with caulk and duct tape........
One thing, after its all said and done YOU will have the satisfaction of knowing it was YOU that brought them
back from caulking hell and restored them to "Original"
Good luck Art.....keep us posted.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
richP is a lying POS

the cone shifted on the spider.....and caused the voice coil to rub and make unwanted noise (sometimes a lot)
..... mechanically "off loading the cone" from the rear will stop this noise........
....THIS IS NO FIX AT ALL...the peformance, and peramiters of the driver is eliminated.
- recone the driver
- replace it

Backyard mechanic? Not. Try common shyster. Putting sawdust in a noisy transmission is an old trick of crooked used car/truck sellers! He was not trying to "fix it"; just mask the noise until he could unload it...
