    Hey all,

    I have this little setup at home that I inherited, basically just two bose 201 speakers with a receiver - sounds good enough for me for movies, I'll probably go to 5.1 shortly. Yesterday I popped a new CD in the player and turned up the bass, I got about 3-4 thumps out of the left speaker then I heard a flapping sound (blew) and now it does that whenever bass/volume is too high.

    Thing is if I take the speaker and put pressure on the top and bottom of the box the sound goes away. My question is is this safe to do or is it going to stress out the actual speaker and blow that? I'm not totally cranking these things by any means - I've had them atleast 2-3 times louder in the past (years and years ago).

    I'd plan on getting some type of silicone and sealing the box again - it seems like maybe the seals just blew?

    So what do ya think?
