In Reply to: RE: Mechanical buzz in JBL D123-question for speaker repair gurus posted by djk on June 06, 2017 at 16:37:38
Message received. Will heed advice. If I'm not lucky in finding some obvious hanging debris of some kind, is there such a thing as an unsolvable buzz? Could a good speaker tech solve this kind of problem without necessarily reconing?
A good speaker guy might be able to remove the dust-cap, clean and shim the gap, soften the spider with acetone, let it dry, test, and if OK put on a new dust-cap.
Thanks. I just tried shaking the speaker while holding it close to my ear, and I don't hear anything that could be loose or anything like particles inside. Mind you, that's not to say I would necessarily be able to hear something from shaking, but it seemed like an interesting thing to try. However, I did find some little balls of debris of some kind (maybe insulation from an old cabinet?) that stand proud on the surround on the back side. Later this evening I will get the tweezers out and remove anything I can see and try again. All advice appreciated.
