    Default Offset Magnet on Celestion V30

    I purchased a used Mesa 412 Recto through GC online and I noticed that one of the speakers is not working. I took off the back of the cab and saw that one of the magnets seems to have moved out of place. I tried to put a little pressure on the cone itself and it did not move like the others. Is there a fix to this or do I just need to bring the thing back and order another?

    If the magnet really has moved (which I've never seen happen...) the voice coil is probably seized up and I doubt it can be repaired.

    Replaced yes.

    If you got a good deal on it, see if GC will either give you, or sell at cost a V30.

    That way you get to keep the cab and everyone avoids further shipping cost.

    I've seen speakers bent off center, and they're not fixable.

    Try to get a huge discount.

    Note that Mesa V30s arent off the shelf Chinese V30s but special order UK ones. You CAN get them thru Mesa for like 160ish last I checked (which should be the number you bring to GC), or get a used one for like $65-75
