One (the cheaper of the two) has two large square speakers (Anyone knowing what kind these might be would be helpful), a CT7 pre-amp and an M-500 Power Amplifier. Both the CT7 and the m500 have problems- I am trying to fix them. Any suggestions would be helpful, because I really like the way they sounded before. (the problem is that the CT7 will not play any music, I turn it on and the numbers turn on but don't do anything. The M500 actually makes a very disturbing buzzing noise and smells bad.) So I am willing to fix them, but I am not sure where to bring them to be fixed.
The nice system has two speakers, using the 48 inch ribbon, so I think they are Amazing Silver... but I am not sure. They are coupled with a 4000t which runs to two "Silver Seven t" mono- amps. I also have a Carver TLM-3600 CD player, the combination is very nice, but in this case one of the ribbons is ripped.
As a college student I am not sure if I can afford to fix that, clicking around at Carveraudio I found the speaker ribbon repair, which would require sending them out and 325 to fix just one. The problem is isolated to the bottom part of the speaker ribbon, I wouldn't mind creating a temporary solution by just finding a way to make the speaker continue to work.
So if there is any advice on how to fix it myself, or if I do, how to send them out (The speaker is connected to the cross-over by wire that is sautered at both ends... should I heat the contacts up and pull the wire out? Or is there a better way to do this?)
Just getting on this site, Dave I am sure you'll read this- I have pictures of what is wrong with the speaker and am willing to send it anytime that you think you could fix them.
Also- Even though they both have 3 10 inch (Measured myself, might be wrong) woofers, the bass is minimal, due to the high fidelity audio. Is there a subwoofer that you would recommend to add to the system later?
