Hi, New to the forum and I just picked up this pair of Advent 3s.

The woofer on one has a scratchy sound, like a short. I switched woofers around, so I know it's not the electronics in the speaker cabinet.

I don't see any tears or other damage to the woofer. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks for your help

Welcome Jordan!
Nice web page!
I "think" you may have a voice coil problem. You could send the woofer to Bill LeGall of Millersound. Maybe email him first. Describe the problem and see what he says. With the other nice speakers you have, these may not be worth fixing.
Or just wait for others to chime in here.
