    Orignially detailed here

    A couple days ago when I was playing the buzz came back. Again today when I was playing. Started out fine, but after a bit it started up again. I decided to do a little more investigating.

    Taking off the grill and check the speakers, I've isolated the problem to the top right speaker. Light putting some pressure on the cone (dampening it) stops the buzzing. I tried the same technique on all four speaker. The other three the buzz continued, but dampening the top right stopped the buzz right away.

    Now... how do I go about solving such an issue now? What is the exact cause of the problem? Am I going to need to get this reconed?

    I'm glad I've got the problem isolated now at least. Now just to fix it.

    It sounds like you've blown your speaker. You can contact the technical group and Eden to explain your situation. They will probably suggest that you have your speaker reconed.

    If there is a tear in the cone of the speaker it can sometimes be repaired with a bit of tape.

    Make sure all the bolts that hold the speakers in are tight. I had this in a Mackie SR 1530, and tightening the allen bolts fixed 'er right up.

    One of my Eden drivers had an incorrectly glued dust cap. That may cause rattling. In fact, I am convinced that at least two of the drivers in my 4X10 XLT were refurbished (and very poorly) drivers installed as new. I am abandoning Eden as of this Sunday.

    I tried that previously.

    I didn't see any tears in the cone. Seemed to be in order. It buzzed on its own, but with a little pressure or whatever dampening it it played fine.

    A 500 watt 15 inch speaker of mine buzzed like crazy one night. I put my finger on it and the buzzing stopped at low volumes. It ended up being a 4 inch tear around the edge of the speaker. Talk about effort.
