I just got a second hand pair of wharfedales diamond 8.4
They were supposed to work perfect before I got them but today I set up the whole system and the surprise is that one of the speakers is not working. Well, actully it sounds, just the woofer, and really low and bad. I've tried plugin the bananas of the other speaker(directly the signal that the other speaker was getting) and... definitely the problem is with the speaker.
Any ideas on this? Should I try opening the cap on back (where the bananas are plugged in) and sneak around?
Besides, I'm testing the "healthy" speaker and now I've some doubts.
Of the 3 "drivers", the mid-range driver is the only one going crazy. The woofer doesn't vibrate, I don't feel mucho movement going on with it. I've changed the setting to power up the bass and down the trebble, but the woofer still doesn't vibrate. Is this normal?

Re: Problem with Diamond 8.4
No - sounds like the speaker/ cross over is faulty - I assume there are only one set of connections on the back - on some speakers you have 4 connections for dual wiring - and you usually bridge those out
Play a piece of music with some drumming in it and you should see the midrange move a lot
Just to make sure there is not a problme with the Amp - swap the speakers around - so you have a left speaker and a right speaker connected
physically move the left speaker over to the rightside and connect to right side cables - and the right speaker to the left side and connect to left cables
Now if the problem goes over to the other side - its the speaker thats fault
if it stays on the sam side - its the amp

Anything in the neighborhood of 8-ohms will usually fly safely with standard audio amplifiers. At only 50w x 2 you want efficient speakers. Watch the volume as this amp may clip if driven too hard. THAT will kill any speaker.
This owner had Valdus 200's and was happy. But just about any quality speaker in the 100w range should work out.
You have to open your watch, take out stem completely, then take out whole movement and release the stone. I you have steady hands, nimble fingers and a pair of tweezers, you will be able to refit the stone using Superglue.
The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
On the back of the speaker are six deep holes that screws the back panel to front baffle.There are six sponge plugs normally.You have to dig these out with a long standard screwdriver or however you can get them out to expose the 6 Phillips head screws below them.Remove the 6 Phillips head screws and the whole speaker comes apart,leaving just the box.Good luck.
My HTC Touch Diamond paired with BTB-200 after I installed the JETware software. When pairing make sure that your bluetooth is on and visible, and that under services only the box for "hands-free" is checked.
