Blown Driver LS-50

I have LS-50 speakers and one of the drivers recently started buzzing. Does this mean the driver is blown? The speakers are a good 5 or 6 years old, and I haven't had any problem with them until now.

Should I buy a new driver from the Polk parts department, or should I take the speaker to a repair specialist?

Also, is it safe to remove the driver from the speaker in the interim and still use the speaker (it has two identical drivers, and the other one sounds fine). The buzzing is quite distracting.

    Call Polk at 1-800-377-7655 and order an MW7100 driver. Do not use speaker without the driver in place.

    I have had 2 of the 4 drivers in my pair of LS50s start buzzing and mine were bought in 1995. Is there some design flaw with these drivers? I have not abused these speakers at all. BTW I have also had to replace a tweeter that went completely dead. Love the sound of the speakers when everything is working.

    Where in SC are you at?

    I dunno about a design flaw but, you know, things wear out.
