Except the baffle is plastic and the cabinet is mdf....

I've repaired one of these so experience (probably) trumps guesswork....

If it's a plastic baffle, I'm sure epoxy is just right. :D

Good to see more Pompey boys here. :cool:

Lol - I didn't try to remove the baffle - I just epoxied it where it was! :eek:

At least you now have a good excuse for an upgrade :D

repairing Mission 701 baffle rattle
 
2 Attachment(s)
I was given a set of Mission 701's with the baffle rattle. The drivers are perfect; if you "hug" the speaker during low frequency rattles, the rattles stop.

A t-15 Torx wrench removes the 4 screws holding each driver in place. The wire clips on the drivers are colour coded- Blue for the Woofer and Red for the tweeter-and the + and - connections are different sizes. In theory, it's impossible to reconnect them wrong, but I label them all anyway.

A razor knife down 2 edges of the box separates one of the wood side panels nice and clean. Take your time, and repeatedly run the razor knife along the edges, and apply a bit of pressure to pull the box apart. Once the wood panel is off, the black plastic baffle was clearly loose and slid right out.

A small flat head screw driver is perfect for cleaning the old glue out of the wood panel channels.

I used LaPage 100% contact cement (for all plastics and wood), to secure the baffle to the box, then used Elmer's wood glue to replace the wood side panel. Be patient- glue the baffle back in, wait 24 hours, then glue the panel back in place.

Yes, the box edge is no longer perfect, but they sound terrific.
