    Hello all> I recently moved into a home. The previous owner left the speakers in the wall in the basement. I put in a new home theater but left the old speakers, that seamed very good. I also kept nmy old receiver. The only problem I am having is my right front speaker. It works fine most of the time but cracks when there is a lot of base. Does this mean the speaker is shot?

    It means you’re overdriving the speaker – the sound you’re hearing is the woofer hitting its limits. Yes, high levels of deep bass can cause that. You can limit the problem by reducing the volume level, or use the EQ to lower the bass level. If all else fails, go into your receiver’s menu and set the speakers for “Small.” This will roll out the bass.
