back speaker buzz

Mon May 30, 2011 8:57 am

I have a R1000UJ6 - upgraded version I think - that has developed a buzz from the rear speaker. It sounds like the kind of noise that resulted from the a paper cone tear on old speakers and the kind that could be repaired with shellac. I wonder if the speaker needs replacing, can be repaired or if there is some "non-mechanical" reason for the buzz. Also, what kind of screws hold the case together. They seem to be similar to Torx but for the pin in the middle?

Them there pain in the butookus screws are called Secuity Torx...
I have brand new woofers from the OEM that are the latest revision and make the R1000 sound like it use to and like a dream.
I beleive you may have debris between the voice coil and magnet from what you discribe and the woofer is not serviceable (per se).

I have the same buzz in the back speaker.

Is it necessary to replace the speaker?
Best Regards,
