Hey guys,

I have an EP125 that is making some not so nice crackling noises.

I've uploaded a video so you can hear what I mean..

This was running a Subwoofer test and the volume dial was at 1/4 on the sub. Crossover at 150 and Phase to 0.

I took the woofer out and gave it a quick glance and couldn't see what was making the noise so I figured I would ask here before I give Axiom a call..

Yes, It happens during normal playback as well. I just used the Subwoofer test for the video as you can really hear the crackling then.

If it just started recently I would give Axiom a call at the 800 # at the top of the website they usually answer on Saturdays, good luck..

Had a bit more free time today So I completely removed the 8" Driver from the enclosure.

When I shake it a bit I can hear something loose in there, sounds like its hitting the dust cap internally. Pretty sure this is what is vibrating in there causing the rattle.

Axiom sent me a new driver and my EP125 is alive again! No more crackling sounds!
