Question about Cerwin Vega Audio Players & Recorders
My speakers sound different from one another. one of them is not as bassy as the other one . ive swapped the woofers around with the speaker boxes , and to my surprise the woofer with the other speaker box which wasnt as bassy became very bassy as it shud be. and the other woofer which was very bassy in the other speaker box lost some of it bass. which means the woofers are ok to me theres something wrong in the cross over

The problem is that the foam is affected by the ozone in the pollution we breath, it causes the foam to break down. It is less likely to happen with newer speakers since a minor change in formulation was made to prevent this from happening.
Solutions to your problem, there are two. First there are foam replacement kits that you can get. You remove the old foam and glue on a new replacement. The issue here is that there could be unseen damage to the voice coil, so it could be a short term replacement.
Second option is to replace the speakers, finding the exact Cerwin Vega replacement would be hard at best since the specific driver hasn't been made on 20 years. So you are left with finding a good replacement, that is where I come in, I have a universal 12" driver patterned after the Cerwin Vega woofer, so you will be able to retain the look of the speaker. Better though is that the speaker I have is a much better performer than the standard CV 12" woofer, and it will work in a 4 or 8 ohm system. You can read more about the product at http://www.mavin.com
Now the only true drawback you have is that being over seas, postage is going to drive up the price, and also you should always replace your drivers in pairs, so buy two. Given the age of your speakers if one is still working, it will go bad shortlyt due to the break down of the foam. Further when you change speakers in stereo pairs, both speakers should still sound the same since they contain the same components.

There is an old cheap way to test any speaker. If you have a multi-meter, set it on OHMS. Then, while holding one lead against one speaker terminal, tap the other meter lead to the other speaker terminal. If the speaker is good, you will hear faint crackles. If you do not have a meter do not despair, you can do the same test using an AA or AAA battery with leads held to the battery.
Good luck! P.S. Nice speakers.

Pull speaker so you can get to the terminals in back. Take an ohm meter and check the ohms of speake, a 4ohm speaker could measure up to 5ohms and still be good. If the reading is way off then it is blown. If speaker is good, then check the cross over thats in the speaker, some models put fuses on the units for protection, but mostley on the high frequency of the cross over, not the low.
