okay, so this is exactly klipsch related but i thought i could get some help here. i am awaiting moderator approval at the altec forums to be able to post the same question. I recently got some altec lansing model 14's. I'm noticing that one speaker has less output than the other and there seems to be very low bass response. so i...... checked connections checked for being out of phase ( the woofer was actually out of phase but when i switched it wasn't any louder ) switched the speaker connections going into the speakers swapped the speakers to the other side ( still sounded lower in volume ) i also switched my mono blocks to the other speaker ( still same volume) when i took out the crossover there was actually a note that appeared to be from a repair shop ( the altecs were reconed by the previous owner) that stated the the mf pot was damaged. i tested the pot and it was okay but the hf pot was actually dead. so i switched both pots with new ones but not any louder. but the hf control is working now. at this point i was going to recap them. is this the next step or should i be checking for something else? there is a protection circuit in the crossover. what it be stuck "on" and be the source of the problem? there is a push button to test for overload but neither speaker lights up when press. hope someone here has run across something similar. thanks guys!
