    So I was sitting at home fiddling with the EQ on my head with the 410 right in front of me.

    While cranking it up pretty loud, I noticed that the top two speakers weren't moving at all. The bottom two were jumping around as usual, but the top two were dead.

    The spec sheets say that the cabinet is divided into two sealed sections. I just find it odd. What would make the top two speakers stop working?

    Anyone with any ideas?

    First thing that comes to mind is bad connection(s). Here's an easy way to verify: Plug a conventional speaker cable into the cabinet input. Touch the opposite cable jack (tip / shield) to the terminals on a 9 volt battery (orientation is not important at this point). All 4 speakers should lightly pop and jump either forward or backward.
