  • Clipping or rattling in stationary speaker Wurlitzer 4573

    when I use certain tabs like the tibias or certain high notes or close harmonic intervals there is a clipping or buzzing or rattling from the stationary speakers. No rattle from pedals, Orbit synth, or Spectra Tone. Anybody have similar problems or have any ideas for me?

    It sounds like the speaker surrounds may need to be replaced. You can usually tell just by looking at the driver. There’s other possibilities, but I think that’s the place to start.

        Just google "speaker driver." It's the business end of the speaker, containing an electromagnet that moves a paper or plastic cone attached to a metal frame. The surround is usually made of foam, but some are made of other materials. It's the part that connects between the cone and the metal frame of the driver. You can get replacement kits from simply speakers, parts express, or some other website like that. It's not hard to do, but it is time consuming.
