I did open it up to take a look. Everything looks OK to me ( with my limited knowledge). I reseated what I could see but it made no difference. They cut those wires pretty short - very little room to do anything in there.
After all the hassles I had a couple of years ago with my SRX series - subs, and tops (at a lot more money don't forget) - I won't complain too much as these DSR's have already served me very well indeed.
The love affair isn't over yet - we just have to overcome a bit of a hurdle in the relationship!

JBL does get the extra point this time though for bailing me out last night .....

Did you put an ohm meter across the woofer while you had it open?

BUT, with 1 terminal disconnected.

If you leave the woofer hooked up, the meter will "see" the output of the amp-as well as the speaker. So you MUST separate them.

Maybe it's like an old carbureted Porsche - once and a while you have to put your foot in it and open 'em up to blow out the carbon!


I know, not helpful.  ;) ::)

Nope - I really don't know enough about the insides of powered speakers so I'm just goinig to leave it to the professional.

Better late than never, but a faulty woofer will often show open or short-circuit when metered.
You can also push gently on the centre of the cone (or just around the dustcap, keeping pressure even) to see if there are any scrapes. It should move smoothly.

I just got a call from the shop.
He told me he checked the woofer first and it was fine ( which I figured). Then he pushed all the switches in and out and moved the mic/line switch back and forth and all of a sudden on it came. He sprayed with some de-oxidizer and we are all good.
So, I'm really happy it wasn't something major but I wish I had moved the switches -I'd have found the problem right away. Never even thought of it. The mic/line switch has been in the same position since I purchased the speakers but it just goes to show that sometimes it is a good idea to move them back and forth....happy ending.

I'll have to add that to the PM checklist.  Thanks Debbie, good to know.
