    I have a Hog 30, and now it sounds like the speaker cone is ripped, although there is no damage, and all fasteners are tight. If I turn down all EQ knobs, it lessens quite a bit. A friend said I may have "excited" the magnet, although I am sure I don't know what that means. Have any other Hog owners experienced this? If so, what is the fix? I'm not afraid to replace the speaker, although I would like to know the best replacement.
    TIA

    Disclosures:

    You didn't "excite" the magnet.

    Check the easy stuff first....cords/cables, battery in bass. Clean all the pots and jacks. If it has an effects loop, try patching a cord from the "in" to the "out". Gently press on the speaker cone a few times with your hand and listen for any scraping, scratchy sounds (with the amp shut off).

    Check around the cone and make
    sure it has not come unglued from
    the frame. If it has, just glue it back,

  5. Although not ripped, sounds like cone creasing from over-excursion
