Aktiv 5140 problem

Post by clarets » 2019-12-03 19:13

I have intermittent crackling / distortion in the right channel bass unit of my 5140.
I swapped the Aktiv cards from left to right and the distortion moved to the left channel.
Conclusion I have a failed mono Aktiv bass card - correct?
Anywhere I can buy one other than fleabay?
