Duct tape pulleese, if the crack is small enough use a little clear nail polish this will effect a clear seal and no re-verberation.(duct tape will break loose after about 2 minutes). if the polish does not work a smattering of (gorilla glue) will do the trick.

If you can get to the back of the speaker cone you could try a little touch of duct tape over the back of the crack. Pretty strong stuff and if your lucky no one will ever know!

On the connection for my Boston Vr2 Floor Speakers there are 4 connections which are connected vertically with a brass plate which is approx 1/2 " wide. I have lost one and the speaker does not seem

You can use a piece of speaker wire to replace the missing bar. those speakers are designed to be used with the bars in place for normal use. they can be removed if you are bi-amp/bi-wireing them.

If you can remove the rear cover check to see that the speaker mounting screws or nuts are tight. If they are the speaker is blown or defective. I would contact Boston Acoustics if it may be still under warranty or can be repaired. good luck

Boston Acoustics VR 950 speaker (tweeters) have static when playing music with a lot of piano. Clean as a whistle (no problems) with acoustic (guitar), though. Are the tweeters blown, or is there...

Don't blame the speakers just yet. Check your PC's audio controls to make sure it's not modifying anything and that your speakers are defined as speakers, not headphones.

Try running UNripped music to them. Solo piano is a difficult signal to reproduce.

Nice amp, huh? I have one plus some Cubes.

I have a Boston MCS130 surround sound system, have had for about 2 yrs. Was woken up during the night with the subwoofer making feedback noise. Had to turn off to keep from making noise. Have checked...

mine had the same problem until it completely quit. unplug the sub and turn it over, press gently on the speaker cone, does it move freely, or do you hear a sort of scrapping noise? if it moves freely with no noise, its a dif problem than mine. if you do hear the scrapping noise, then theres a short in the voice coil, from what ive read you have to replace the driver (actual speaker part), its basically blown

I get a red light on the back panel labeled power. No green light. I don't think the PV 600 is working but when I run the channel check through my Pioneer THX receiver I hear sound. Any thoughts?

The PV600 and PV400 have auto-on circuitry that turns the subwoofer on when a signal is presented, and turns off if no signal is detected for 15 minutes.

Not knowing which Pioneer receiver you have I have dropped in the steps for No Sound from Subwoofer:

• Check that the subwoofer is connected properly, switched on and the volume turned up.

• If your subwoofer has a sleep function, make sure it is switched off.

• Make sure that the Subwoofer setting is YES or PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• The crossover frequency may be set too low; try setting it higher to match the characteristics of your other speakers (see Speaker Setting on page xx)

• If there is very little low frequency information in the source material, change your speaker settings to Front: SMALL / Subwoofer: YES , or Front: LARGE / Subwoofer: PLUS (see Speaker Setting on page xx).

• Check that the LFE channel is not set to -80dB , or a very quiet setting (see Bass Peak Level

on page xx).

• Check the speaker level settings (see Channel Level on page xx).

Regarding the Large vs Small assignment of speakers, what they mean isn't so much the physical size but the ability to handle real bass. Large if Yes.

Left speaker has developed a hum. Checked connections and all seems well. Sounds raspy like the speaker has blown.

This is likely due to a problem with the amplifier. You may have turned up the amp to the point of overdriving the speaker. The distortion at these high levels cause clipping and turn what was once crisp, clear sound into a muddied, garbled mess.

If the speaker is left connected to that source long enough, damage to the speaker and the amp may occur.

Without changing positions of the speakers: You can disconnect the affect Front or Rear L & R speakers and swap them (connect the L speaker to the R output of the amp and vice-versa). If the buzzing / hum "moves" to the other speaker, then the amplifier has the problem. If the buzzing / hum stays with the same speaker, the speaker has issues and is likely "blown".

Either way, it is probably not going to be a "cheap fix"

Good luck!
