WTB: MW4850/1 for CS350

I have a CS350 center speaker with one frozen driver (I am thinking magnet shift d/t moving recently). Looking for a replacement.

Thanks,
Fudai

    If it is magnet shift, it can be repaired fairly easily. Put in an alert on the Bay if you insist on a "new" driver. Might find a whole 350 for a good price...

    Thanks. I worry that I’m not savvy enough to fix it. I’d need some detailed instructions on the repair and how to build the jig...

    Those drivers come up often in ebay. The complete center as well comes up often for good prices 75-100. Get one and have several spares. Drivers tend to sell for 40-45 bucks.... see where I'm going here?

    Keep an eye out for LSfx's as well. They use the same drivers.

    Be warned, they're usually pricey...

    LSfx's, older model. Not Lsifx. Think I paid like $75 for mine.

    The only difference is the ones in the 350 will probably have bucking magnets which are not needed anymore unless you are still running a CRT TV.
