Default Tannoy System 800 "rattling"

Hey guys.

So, the problem is that whenever I play som bass heavy tunes, one of the woffers starts to rattle. I seems like its rubbing against the tweeter horn!

Any ideas?

I had this effect on a System 600.
The coils of the crossover network are fixed by cable ties which get brittle over time and eventually break. In my case the lf coil had come loose and ratteled.

This topic should be in Multi-Way, not Full Range, it will have more exposure there.
