I've apparently relied to heavily on the protection circuit and blown a bass unit in my B&W's.
They are Matrix 3 Series 2 as pictured in my Gallery photo. This is a semi music emergency as I've sold off my other speakers. I don't know how this has happened as I don't listen to bass heavy music and my amps are a 40 WPC tube amp and a 110 WPC Hafler. But there is a definate buzz that wasn't fixed by swapping tubes or swapping cables to make sure it wasn't down stream.
The driver from B&W service is 276.00. I'm hoping for a less expensive solution! Can the driver be repaired. Doesn't anyone have experience disassembling the speaker to access it?
This is my first pair of B&W's I've ever owned and one of the reasons I purchased them is because of thier reputation for reliability. They have a protection circuit built in for gosh sakes! I've never blown a pair of speakers in my life!
