Hope someone can pont to the answer speaker of two is producing only a distant and faint noise. I swopped them round in case it was some sort of amp prob. Still the same tinnyness from the same speaker that is weak and doesn't produce the sounds on tracks that should be coming through on it. I know that speakers are a pretty simple construct. The wiring is a white one with duo-strand and I am connecting the strand with writing and grey stripes on it to the black terminals in both the amp and back of speaker, as I think is the right thing to do. Anyone experienced this? Is there as simple solution before buying a new speaker?

The wire is buggered or your bass speaker has died one or the other.

thanks ryoko - there is ineed no bass sound coming from it. Iwill swop the wiring over and see if it is the wire. If it isn't ( which I am sure it isn't) I'll look into solving the bass part of the speaker, and if it can be repelaced cheaper than buying a new speaker.

If it's not the wiring it sounds like you may have a blown tweeter (although hard to judge not being able to hear it, is it really hissy or struggling with 'high' notes?), have you had it turned up really loud, has someone crashed into them?

no, just struggling with everything! It sounds like it is playing in a tin can 10 miles away! Turned it up really high - just the same thing except louder. No. no external damage to it at all.
