    Glad i'm not the only one that's noticed that over the years. Excursion is the only thing that would make any sorta sense.

    that's def not an issue with excursion that's where something impacted the surround during play, be careful doing that it can cause the VC to rub in the gap and short out after the epoxy coating is damaged.

    I don't know my 10's are fine and I blew the surrounds off the baskets.
