Mike B Posted April 1, 2020 Report Share Posted April 1, 2020 Hi! I have been using a pair of Advent Legacy II speakers as studio monitors (I know they color everything but they look great and I like the sound :-) Just now, suddenly, both speakers lost a bunch of sound pressure and most high and low frequencies. This was not while listening, and since I am noodling around with a mixer and microphones it is possible some signal went down to them like feedback from a monitored mic or something. When I played material back through them I noticed the distortion (extra horrifying because I can not sing and was listening back to a vocal track to experiment with.) I know it was them because I swapped them around with another system and the distortion follows them. My question is, what might have happened to the both of them? I am leaning toward the crossovers blowing, but I don't know how that would happen. My other question is if it is possible, or worth it to repair them? Is there anyone good around Providence RI who would troubleshoot and/or repair them? I got a great deal on them on ebay a few years back because the seller would not ship - they are pristine like furniture and have always sounded really great until now. And I love them even more because they are the exact speakers I had way back in the 80's when I bought them for real money at the long defunct Lechmere in Deham MA! Thanks for any help!
