RE: Mechanical buzz in JBL D123-question for speaker repair gurus

I haven't tried it as a stereo speaker, but I'm pretty sure it's not an excessive power issue. The D123 is a well known and well regarded speaker for blues guitar (I do realize these drivers must not be over driven without undue risk) and I have only used it with 5 watt 1 x EL84 amps. Also, the buzz is audible at very modest levels (conversation level or less) even when using small amps. Still, I could probably hook it up to a stereo to try it with music. I am just about to spend a bit of time looking closely at the surround for any debris.
