I think something is wrong on one of the M80. The twitter stops and then i tap or slowly rock the speaker, i can hear the sound from twitter...

There have been no accidents with the speaker..so surprised..

What do i do?? call Noreen or any suggestions before i do so.

As always..help appreciated.

If you call Axiom 800 tech support, the first thing they will probably have you do is remove the front tweeter in question and see if all the wire connections are secure and not loose. Noreen would not be the one to call, you would call the 800 number and get Brent, JC, Alan, or whoever is on call at that time.

Yup, sounds like perhaps a loose connection.

finally worked with tech support.
The connections are intact, so they are shipping me a pair of twitters. Hope it will fix it.

BUT, while i was doing the listening test, me 2 yr old pushed the dome on the mid-range \:\(
Can somebody point me to the masking tape trick on how to fix the issue. Tech said it doesnot cause any issue to sound but its bugging me

Google gave these..makes me nervous

Instructions

Step 1
Place a cardboard tube on top of the dome and suck the dent out with your mouth. This is a good method for very soft cones which could be damaged by the methods below.

Step 2
Stick a piece of masking tape onto the dent and gently pull up on it. Try to pull the dent out with the tape. You can also try using duct tape, but it may leave a sticky residue on the speaker dome.

Step 3
Place a shop vac hose or a hose attached to a normal house vacuum directly over the vent. Turn on the vacuum. As soon as the dent pops out, turn off the vacuum. Do not attempt to pull it off the speaker dome while it is turned on! This is similar to the method in step 1, but more powerful. Try the first method first, since this can rip some thin silk or plastic speaker domes.

Step 4
Bend a small pin at a right angle and poke it through the center of the dent. Turn the pin so that the bent part is perpendicular to the dent and pull it straight up. When the dent pulls out, turn the pin again so that it slides out of the speaker dome.

Step 5
Glue the end of a dowel or a block of wood onto the dent with hot glue. Hold it still until the glue dries and cools (about 20 seconds). Then, pull the dent out by pulling the piece of wood away from it. Once you have pulled the dent out, peel off the glue.

The best method for fixing a dented dust cap is to learn to live with it. Any method you use to pull it out risks separating the dusk cap from the cone. So unless it’s become partially separated in which case you’ll likely hear buzzing at certain frequencies I’d leave it alone.

I think these will work about as well.

Step 6
Wiggle something small on a thin stick in front of it where a cat that still has it's claws can see it.

Step 7
Apply paste to the end of a toddlers finger and tell him/her to poke at it.

Step 8
Hold a lighted match in front of it really close and hope that it will heat up and expand the air inside of it.

Here is the video that axiom put together:

I've always wanted to know if it was that easy but never wanted to go push in on one to test it.

The masking tape works if the dent is recent. Otherwise, I've had to go with the vacuum.

I've used a vacuum attachment with no issues. Start a distance away and gradually move towards the cone.
