I have a pair of PSB Imagine B that I usae for HT only and 1 of the speakers has developed a buzz when there the signal goes into the lower registers, running them in large they buzz a lot, crossed over at 50hz there is some buzzing, I don't want to cross them over at 80hz as I don't have a sub cause I live in an apartment.

Who is a good reputation in repairing speakers in the Ottawa area, and should I have both speakers fixed with the new parts if it is the woofer that is defective ?

thanks for any advice

Tom

The Audio Shop is the identified PSB dealer in Ottawa. Why not give them a call. I suspect you just need to replace that woofer which, hopefully, is still available.

Twice, about 10 to 15 years ago, I had issues with Audio Shop. If you get anything less than excellent service from them, contact PSB directly.

A quick search on epay got 3 hits for the woofer. If no local support appears, you can go shopping on line and change it your self.

I found no hits on ebay, did you have a part number ? I keep getting hits on the Image series not the Imagine

I got my speaker fixed au the Audioshop on Bank st, service was quick and friendly pricing was less than I anticipated it would be. Overall I am very satisfied.

Remove the driver and check to see if a portion of the spider has lifted (broken loose) from where it`s glued to basket. Seems to be a common issue with modern PSB woofers.

There are a number of qualified people who list their skills on Kijiji for this type of work. Seek them out for references in the Ottawa area.
