How do you fix a slightly blown monitor?

I got the original HR824s....one just blew. Cone appears not to be externally damaged. Is there a way to fix it without shipping it to Mackie or buying new monitors?

Either it is or it isnt.
Sometimes when you have dents in your speaker cone that arent torn, you can take a small shop vacuum and suck it out,but you must be very careful when doing that.
It also could be the power amp that drives the woofer.
Otherwise,off to the factory it goes

call em. u could replace it urself. I know krk sends the woofers out so u can replace them yourself if u would like. It would cost more to send it in, and it would be a long wait.

Yeah man, you can replace the speaker yourself.
Do a search for the blown speaker, sometimes ebay is cheaper, sometimes not.
Un skrew the speaker from the encloser, and with a soldering iron melt the solder on the wires to release them from the blown speaker.
Make sure you remeber what wires are + and -.
Resolder your replacement speaker, skrew it back in and your done.
I've done it about 4 times with my NS 10s. Not too big of a deal and you will feel like a tech wizzard!
If you can't figure it out, order the speaker and go to any electronic repair shop to get it installed.

Sending the speaker back to Mackie could take a long time.
You can get this done in a matter of days on your own.

I feel for ya,bro.
It happened with my JBL 6328s which are no picnic to replace, so I always have my trusty old Event 2020bas for backups,and you know what,I love 'them, with my Tannoy sub.

I also own the HR824s. I recently had something similar going on. One of my woovers completely stopped working, only the tweeter kept going.

I was about to get myself 2 new woovers, but then I remembered that I once had problems with the little switches at the back of the monitors.

Infact, when I switched all of them a couple of times and brought them all back to the original position, my woover came back to life.

You might want to try that before you replace your woovers?

I disagree, once I was slightly blown... happened to me while in the car driving to a dinner date. Was slowly driving up the road then low and behold our dinner hosts pull up in their beemer. We had to stop at that point as it would have looked funny me driving to a dinner date without a date in the car.
