Must have been quite a party

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

I noticed that one of the speakers in our sound system was sounding terrible, so I pulled off the speaker grille, and here is what I found.

Blown woofer

I don’t know how loud the system must have been cranked to blow a woofer like that.  I’m not aware of any loud parties at our place when the kids were home alone – no complaints from the neighbours, no police reports, etc.

Oh well, I got more than 30 years out of those speakers, and they were never spectacular performers anyway.

I’ve replaced them with a set of bookshelf speakers – a lot smaller but with better sound.  I don’t know what I’ll do with these old-school monsters.
