Extremely distorted sound

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I just took hold of a Barcrest it’s Amazing machine. Condition is fantastic however the sound from the machine is extremely distorted and not worth having on, now I understand these machines are not built with sound quality in mind but never had one sound so bad. 

My question is...  since it’s a dual speaker cabinet what’s the chances of both speakers failing?  Could it be the board itself ?  Any help on what to check would be great . The speakers are Gemmy 4ohms 15 watt but can’t find them anywhere.

The best way to rule out blown speakers is connect an external one and see if the sound is good.

Turns out both speakers are blown. I found my misses old massage chair in the garage and it has 2 4ohm speakers in it! Got them hooked up and the sound is now perfect, obviously they are not a perfect fit but made do just now. The ones in the picture I couldn’t find anywhere on google

You can use 8 ohm speakers they are more common.you cant do it other way round though it knackers the amp.
