Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Do you have a habbit of turning your woofer up louder than listening to "clean" music? As you turn up the volume almost to the maximum, you should notice when the "clean" sounding music turns to "not clean" sounding music. Also known as "distortion". That "distortion" is actually your amplifiers inability to play louder than that point. When you turn up the volume past the point when the music sounds like it is "unclean" sounding music, your amplifier is pushing instructions to your woofer, but the woofer can't handle all the extra instructions and is damaging your woofer. And hense, over time, you can damage your woofer beyond repair.
If you can't find a loose connection, there are only 2 other possibilities. You wore out your amp. Or, more likely, you wore out your woofer. Or......Please, no......not that.......possibly both. Amps can be sent to the manufaturer for repair, but check craigslist before you spend on repair. I would focus on the woofer possibly being the worn piece. A high end audio shop will gladly take $15-30 from you to test your woofer and amp for you.Just tell them what you hear. They can also check all your connections for you.
