    Has anyone been able to diagnose and fix a cone buzz by themselves? I have a Peavey T-Max 250 with the original cabinet, and some frequencies cause a light buzz that seems to emanate out of the hole in the back.

    Is there any easy way to diagnose and eliminate this? Thanks.
  2. The last one turned out to be a small pebble wedged in the back of the cone/surround. Have a looksee. You can also push the cone in gently to feel for the coil rubbing.

    Put your hand down, around the cabinet, and see what vibrates. Then some woofer cones vibrate from poor seating in the magnet when the surround was glued to.
