I'm a hifi enthusiast from Scandinavia.
I have read this thread with great interest and I like to thank you all for some excellent posts.
Hopefully someone can shed some light on this:
I just bought a pair of Revel Salons from '98. After setting them up in my living room I hear this strange rattling sound from the left front tweeter and I can see the alluminium alloy dome is touching the sound dispersion thing. I tried gently to push the alloy dome back in place, but it kept moving outward. I finally find out, that the alloy dome is actually completely decoupled from the rest of the unit and I can easily pull it out with a piece of duct tape. Have anyone heard about a situation like this before? What could possibly cause this? The speakes were shipped in their original boxes, but could a hard bump during the transportation cause this?
I'd hardly recovered from the initial shock of the damaged tweeter when I realized that the right midrange woofer is completely dead. Could that be the crossover? Seven years is maybe old, but I thought Revel Salons were built to last..
How can I find out what is wrong with the dead midrange woofer?
Yyz, how much did you pay for new tweeters?
Any response is much appreciated.
