Reminds me of when I was a kid and opened up my polaroid camera. I started poking around inside and got the crap zapped out of me! I told my dad later and he said it was probably the capacitor in there. Wow, was that strong! I thought I was safe because I had the batteries out of it.Here is a trick for you, to check the high voltage. ML sent this to me.
As a previous owner of CLSIIz, the dampening tape is a installed at the construction of the panels. It is something they determined was necessary with the evolvement of the speaker.It sounds like a mechanical noise, yes.
I am not snarky, I just want to know:
* What other kind of noises can a CLSIIz panel make besides playing music?
* Can it be the frame?
There is an area that looks like it was dampened by ML ... these panels have never been taken apart.
It seems that the vibrations are coming from that area.
Do you have an idea now of what might have caused that condition?I just had a long conversation with Roberto, and he listened to it. It seems that the diaphragm is a bit lose, and I am going to (extremely) carefully try to heat up the panel to get it to shrink just enough to get rid of the buzz.
@Brad225 You were talking about "dried out" and discoloration ... wanna tell me a bit more about it? What are the thoughts behind it?
That instruction seems to assume your multimeter is a particular impedance (ohms/volt). But if you have another speaker to do "comparison shopping", the precise voltage measurement shouldn't be critical, as long as you have one good speaker and it's the same.Here is a trick for you, to check the high voltage.
