If the speakers are rubbing against the Fabric Cover, try removing the cover to see if this fixes the sound problem. If not, there may be a mount, etc. that has come loose inside the speaker. Since it is an in-wall speaker, you will have to remove the speaker from the wall and check the internals for the cause of the rubbing. If all else fails, contact the place where you purchased the speakers to see about getting the problem speaker replaced.

I'm trying to find the age of a piano. Modern upright, bears the brand name Mahler, with a serial number RD54077. value not an issue.

The Mahler is a Lindner. Just take off the black label on the wrest plank, turn it over and it generally says Lindner!.
Mind you they are fine pianos with the wooden keys( ducks behind steel shutters and dons stab-proof kevlar)
Lindners were the most forward looking and innovative pianos of the late 20th. miles in front of anything else and were the only advance in piano design and construction since Erard's double repetition action in 1857 ( Hope I don't get a Fatwa).

Unfortunately, the materials were largely #### but the idea was fantastic and however much people moan, they were the only technician -friendly concept ever.Space the hammers- two seconds with a wide screw driver. Level the keys? turn a screw under. If some of the more pompous makers were not to snooty to take tips, they could learn much from the late, largely unlamented Lindners.

I work in a church that has 4 passive speakers across the room, 3 out of 4 of them sound super muffled and n one of them sound perfect Ive tried switching power amps, there is no processing help?

I would say from your description that the tweeters are blown.
Can you take the speaker that sounds good and swap it out with one that sounds bad. If you do that and the good one still sounds good. You have a tweeter problem. And they would need to be replaced.

How so I fix a stuck piano key

It would depend on why it's sticking. First thing to check is the key bushing felt, then see if the key has swollen and is rubbing the ajascent key. Past that, you'll need a repairman.

How can I repair roland digital piano model ep 95?

Sounds like something is on the board and is causing the problem. Try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, or spray clean it with electric contact cleaner spray. Let it dry and give it a try. Be sure to unplug the piano when you're in there working on it. Also, check for loose resistors, diodes, etc. Re-solder them if they're loose.

Hi, when I play a chord on my Casio-656 keyboard it sometimes sounds out of tune - if you hit the chord again it plays correctly. Is this a fault or a setting? It seems to be intermittent so that would...

I would check your fingering... You MAY be late in hitting a particular note and the using auto chord... this can cause the problem. Another thing is if notes are hit with different velocity that can affect the sound. Sometimes certain voices have VELOCITY switching which actually changes the voice depending on the velocity you hit a note.

The cone keeps the dust out of the voice coil, I do not see a problem with you going ahead and replacing with the newer version, the sound will keep it's original composition that you can expect from Tannoy.

My Tannoy Reveal 6D Monitors are only outputting sound from the tweeters. I'm looking for troubleshooting suggestions.

I still suggest calling Tannoy, They are usually very reasonable and will give you a fair price to service a very good product
