    Onkyo skf-540c speaker failure

    While watching tv today I heard some lovely distortion and then my center dropped volume by about 50%. I pulled it apart and found that one of the woofers is misaligned because if I move one quadrant of the cone about 1mm in I can get the driver to start functioning again. Anybody have any clue who OEM's Onkyo's speakers? My choices for repair are either buy a random center that is close to this center, or try and find any of the front speakers and swap out the drivers into my center.


    Thoughts or other ideas?

    i have a punched in tweet and woofer (ah a child's touch) on my Onkyo HT and called their parts dept and replacements were like $11 and $18 or something. basically not much more than any other drivers. i looked online for a while and even asked them who or where i could buy replacements and they said i would have to go through them. probably so they make the money on the sale, but those prices aren't too bad.
    i should really stay off of forums after a few drinks.

    Can you pull the driver and look for any model or part numbers?

    I yanked it apart and found a model number. Ordered a replacement woofer from Find Part: Appliance Parts, TV Part, Electronics Parts, Computer Parts Store.. We will see how that works out. What looked like what happened is when i was moving I must have dropped the center channel and the force of impact physically bent the woofers frame. I was able to straighten it with a claw hammer (talk about a macgyver move). It seems to be working now, but I am sure it will give out soon.

    Anyone else order anything from partstore.com? Reviews weren't too bad for it, just that it can take quite awhile to get stuff.

    I ordered 2 pair of Alpine SPX-17Pro tweeters from them a couple of years ago when they were available.I also ordered I believe some tweeter mounting parts for a different set.Good communication and service IMO.Great prices-I think I paid $18.00 a piece for the SPX tweeters.
