small sad today

and I do mean small.   I have had my ‘Studio’ monitors for damned near 20 years now.  Today I was jamming out and kept hearing something off.   looking closer and a little digging around (by turning up, LOL)  the surround is torn on one satellite speaker:  Subwoofer is fine, the left channel is still fine (for how long,,,, dunno) its not ‘bad’, but it is making some distorted crackles when driven, it will only get worse, they don’t heal themselves,,,


amazingly I can still find this model available. (says something about the quaility of the product that they are still making it) and if I can find the model, I can find a replacement driver for it.

OOPS, spoke too damned soon. $800 from a private seller,,, Logitech doesn’t produce them anymore and apparently the replacement model is ‘lacking’ as one commenter put it. ok, my small sad just grew a notch on the belt line,, grrr.

and as long as i don’t ‘drive’ the unit, it may last longer yet.

ROFL, me? not DRIVE a system,,, ROFLMAO,,WHooo, tha’s funny right there,,,,

And now, I am thinking about building a pair of satellites from some car speakers that I have. I just need to match impedence of whats in there to keep the rest of the system in range.,,

still, 20 stinking years and I drive the hell out of it and the only issue to date is that surround starting to give way, and one replaced input line a couple years back (1/8′ phone jack, finally gave up.) I think I got my monies worth out of them. (and that subwoofer is still kicking ass, taking names, and rupturing foundations,,)
