hmmm...i didn't wanna wake the nordschows, so i thought i'd throw it to you guys. for some reason or another, i'm getting this really crappy distorted sound from my metro i have no clue what it could be...there are no tears in the cones, i can push on the speaker with no resistance, tellin me that _maybe_ there is nothing wrong with the voice coil...and what are the odds of both speakers being blown at the same time? BUT, i did notice that the bulb/fuse thingy on the ?crossover? was blown...so, does blown limiter bulb=crappy distorted tone? i hope that's the problem...those things only cost a buck or two. i really don't wanna chunk out 300 bucks for new speakers. that would suck.
