    Default Any speaker experts around here?

    I'm sure in the vast knowledge of the people that hang around this forum, somebody has speaker knowledge.

    I have some Bose 301 series 1 speakers, I've had them for 10 years or so and they've been my only speakers for a couple years. They sound great, but a couple days ago I was listening to Iz on Pandora and noticed one speaker was rattling! Well, I can't see any rips or tears in the speaker, it seems to be the main "woofer" it only rattles on the bass. Anyway I replaced the foam on my old Marantz speakers years ago and it wasn't too hard, but I see no issues with the physical appearance of the speaker. Any other ideas?

    BTW, after hearing the rattle I searched Craigs and found some 301 series II and got them, they sound pretty good, but with both sets together!!! Wow, except for the rattle.

    One speaker that I owned in the past turned out to have some loose wires. Tie wraps that were holding the wires in place deteriorated and the wires and tie wraps buzzed against the woofer.
