Most of you have probably already upgraded from the old RC-35 center speaker(or the old reference series altogether, for that matter). But for those of you who still have the old RC-35 and have trouble with the sound quality I.E. muddy, scrapy, bad sound, I have found the error.(I don't know if the problem exists on the RS-35 or whatever they were called, the floorstanding one's in the same series.) After putting up with the terrible sound for way too long I opened up the speaker.(8 torx screws on the front) And what I found was that every spade-contact to the speaker elements was loose. It seems that the wire spade plugs are made of a material that is too soft, so it will create intermittant contact to the speaker element spade terminal when the speaker is vibrating. On my speaker some of them almost fell off when I pulled them. Solution: Unplug, turn off etc. amplifier etc before attempting this. Pull off each spade plug, and using a flat nose plier, gently tighten the plug before attaching it again. You could also cut the spade plug and mount a better one if you have the tools for it. After doing this a year ago I actually needed to do it again yesterday, so new spade plugs would probably be the best option. Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for anyone destroying their speaker, amplifier, loosing the warranty, killing the cat or whatever by following my instructions, but if you are capable of doing such a task as described above, you might get a better sounding speaker.
