    Hi all..hopefully someone knowledgeable on this can help me..I’m attempting to go a little out of my “refoam only” technical skills on speakers. Recently I obtained a pair of C38..they sound great EXCEPT one of the 1217-1290 drivers is very noticeably lower in sound. I switched the N1200 crossovers to eliminate them as the “culprit”, so the issue is definitely in the driver itself. Would this be a diaphragm issue, and if so, would anyone be able to tell me which one to purchase? And also, is it a somewhat easy job to replace for a “willing to try” novice? :)
    I will include pics of the meter reading I got..and also, this driver is the 8 ohm version.
    Thanks in advance!

    32 ohms is really high. Open it up and check for corrosion or a loose connector. Radian makes a good aftermarket diaphragm for a LE175.

    The problem might simply be corrosion ( or a loose wire ) on the inner terminal connection .

    Opening up the driver removes the wax seals ( unfortunately reducing the resale value of the driver ).
