Are your prayer beads maple or rosewood?

It's a Peavey 115 TLS.<br /> There's no tears or visible damage anywhere. <br /> If I apply a bit of pressure on the edge of the speaker, while the speaker is in use, it clears right up. <br /> Any ideas for a fix or should I just replace the basket and speaker?<br /> <br /> And since they're a set of two, should I be worried about the other one going anytime soon?

If the speaker is mounted tightly (the screws are all snug and it's not the basket rattling), remove the speaker and inspect it and the inside of the cabinet for anything loose.<br /> <br /> Connect the loose speaker to a sound source and hold it by the magnet as you listen for buzzing. If it does buzz, you may have a loose voice coil that's rubbing in the magnet gap--and that means you need a re-cone. If the speaker is quiet though, it's probably something loose somewhere.<br /> <br /> Use your knuckles to rap against the speaker frame and in various places on the cabinet, and listen for buzzes and rattles. Make sure there are no dangling wires in the cab that can come in contact with the speaker basket or cone.<br /> <br />

Have a careful look at the spider.<br /> That's that sort of corrugated fabric that connects the center of the cone to the outside edge.<br /> Sometimes the glue can fail and cause the symptoms you describe.

The surround and cab itself are fine. I did loosen the speaker to get at the back, nothing was loose or otherwise damaged. I was hoping to pull it fully out and test, but wire was too short. Even with the speaker solidly anchored, it still buzzes, except when I dampen the travel with my finger. <br /> <br /> I'll check tonight on the magnet part, and I think,I need to shine a light behind it to check for any issues with the cone. BTW, does anyone around here re-cone? Can I take it to Chuck Levin's?

Many Peavey speakers have bolt on baskets/cones. You buy a cone and slap it on the old magnet....done.

Is the 15" a Black Widow?

BbendFender...I believe that the 115TLS has a Sheffield Pro 1500 plus woofer.
