Just because a speaker is blown or making popping sounds, does not necessarily mean that it should be junked. Many common speaker problems can be fixed with a speaker repair kit very inexpensively. For all intents and purposes the only damage which is not repairable is if an audio driver is dropped causing the basket to bend or the magnet itself to break. Careful inspection will be required. If one or both of these pieces are damaged, do not waste any more time on the unit. Also, if the speakers are of the quality normally found in the home theater in a box (HTIB) and inexpensive, it is recommended to just discard the speakers and replace them as it would most likely not be economical to affect repairs.

Like Elvis, Johnny Cash began recording for Sun Records at the Memphis Recording Service studios (both the studio and Sun Records were owned and run by Sam Phillips) in 1954.
