Loudspeaker Repair or Buy New Replacement?

I have a pair of 8" loudspeakers in my home speaker system that are producing no sound. I am considering buying replacement, but they are quite expensive from the manufacturer. I see there are companies on line that will repair them for less. Any opinion on whether a repaired speaker is just as good as the original? OR, am I better off to just buy the replacement from the manufacturer at a higher cost? They are actually Martin Logan Ascents, but the Product description below would not take that info.

I have tried the repair thing before. They can be repaired the only problem is they dont seem to hold up as good or for long. I found it better just to replace speekers with new ones

My input cord is good. I get nothing more than a faint sound with everything turned up. What could be the problem?

You need to determine if the problem is the system itself. If you haven't already, try plugging in a pair of working headphones into the front Headphone port and see if the sound problem persists. If it sounds good on the headphones, than it is suspect that the problem lies with the Cord. If you have another input cord (Male-to-male) try that and see if the problem persists. If you know that the input cord is good, than it is probably a loose connection or a blown/damaged loudspeaker inside the system itself (or only in the Subwoofer).

Sounds like the voice coils are toast. Did you notice a "burned" smell inside the cabinets? If you have a AA battery around, try briefly touching the battery to the woofer terminals with some short wires. You should hear a noise when the battery touches the terminals. If no noise, check with Parts Express for replacement drivers. If you hear a noise, look for a problem on the crossover board.

Speaker wire not colour coded

You can gently tap a nine-volt battery to the side of the wire pair that will be connect to the amplifier. When you've got the loudspeaker connected in proper phase, the speaker will push out, instead of pulling in.

Speaker muffled and distorted

Don't know about the type of your hardware, but your description is very light. In order to further isolate the problem, I would do the following:

1. Replace the speaker with a working one. If this works fine, then it is really the speaker that is broken. If however the intact speaker shows the same problem when connected to the same channel, then the amplifier/equalizer has an issue.

If it is by this confirmed that the speaker is broken look at step 2:

2. Inside the speaker there is usually a frequency separation filter. Either the bass loudspeaker is damaged or the filter. Ideally you could exchange filter and loudspeaker with parts from a working speaker box and find out by this which component is defective.

3. Once you have identified the defective component, try to find out the brand and type and perform an internet search.

4. If you don't find anything, bring the whole thing to a repair service, they can order the spare part.

If you are too lazy or technically not very skilled, go directly to step 4.

Hope that helps
