i got a cab on ebay with two jbl e120's for a very nice price. I've been playing it out of low volume amps for a couple months and now I finally had a chance to crank it up with a twin and I believe I'm getting cone cry. Well... if what i'm hearing is cone cry... Certain notes kinda like squeal and make a terrible noise like something isnt vibrating properly.
the front loading clips that came with the cab look like they might be the cause of this sound (in which case I know it wouldnt be cone cry) but what do you guys think about these pics? The clips are pushing the cork somewhat into the outer layer of the surround.
Unforunately I dont have an amp loud enough to do a video clip of this clean- i can push my amp to distort and get some examples of this nasty sound
any input is appreciated- do you think these speaker clips could be the source of my sound problems with these jbl's?
Also- how difficult is replacing the dust caps on these?
