Question about Alesis M1-Active MkII Main / Stereo Speaker
Hi, my speakers are out of warranty and both stopped working roughly a month apart. I do push them pretty hard (but not so they are distorted)!
Interestingly, when i physically push the cones back the bass kicks in for a split second... I was wondering if this could be a physical problem with the driver itself or whether something has blown on the main board so that there is not enough current to drive them properly?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated :)
Your problem is a damaged voice coil, you will have to replace the drivers, or the voice coil. I suggest personally replace the drivers as it's a lot cheaper then getting the voice coil repaired. The reason for this is pushing it hard, it seems like the coil came out of the magnet a lot and when it does that it gets heated up extremely hot and the chance for the coil to burn is high.

Check the condition of the surround(foam or rubber) of the driver, if it is deteriate,or crack, you have the replaced the drivers(woofer cone),I have that happened to my NHTs one time, after I replaced it, it sounded like it was new, depend on the drivers price, it might be better for you to replaced the whole speaker.For me, it was worth it, because the new drivers have rubber surrounds, instead of foam, which will last me a long time.
