Hi all - 

 

Noticed that one of the woofers on my beloved Academy has a rattle to it - looks like this is no longer made any chance anyone has a "Spare" they might be willing to sell?? 

 

Thanks! James

Hi. Just a quick thought—did you check if the dust cap was 100% sealed and seated? Sometimes all it takes is a little inconspicuous section to become unglued and hover just proud of the woofer, creating a rattle noise during excursion.

Great tip - I had that happen on my Forte's years ago and didn't remember that until you mention it. I will definitely take a look and see! Wouldnt that be great if that were it!

GREAT NEWS! the dust cap on the offending woofer was hanging on by a thread - I took it out today cleaned it up and re-glued will wait 24 hours to test but looks promising. The other woofer dust cap was also starting in one spot to come off so I carefully took an exacto and took that one off and glued that one as well.

Thanks  again everyone for the tips - the glue has set and it’s working perfectly! Gave the walnut a refresh while it was disconnected and added the badge to match the Chorus2 in my setup.
