FXiA6 Speakers wont play below 1000 Hz

I have a pair of FXiA6 Polk Audio. Was running REW and noticed that the pair of speakers won't play below 1000 Hz, the dB is around 80 at 1000 Hz and is down below the soundstage of 60 dB around 900 Hz.


I'm assuming the mid/woofer is done. Don't know the transition from Mid/Woofer to tweeter.


Is this something that is fixable?

I checked in the bipole and dipole configuration. Then I unplugged them and plugged in a set of T15 and it played sound in the 100 Hz to 1000 Hz range. So it is something wrong with the speakers.

    I would say given the age, the crossover is probably no longer functioning properly

    The woofer isn't playing if that's all you are getting.

    Check to see if both tweeters are playing. The toggle switch or something might have an issue that is preventing the signal from reaching the face with the woofer on it. It would be rare to have a defective woofer without a defective tweeter. Woofers in and of themselves have very low failure rates, even with age.

    I was thinking they were older but I'd still check the crossover first
