<font color='#000000'>Old tuner and amp are great, but every so often wouldn't play the right channel. &nbsp;Tapping on the amp would 'fix' the sound. &nbsp;Friend suggests it might be the speaker relay.

So, decided to retire old amp and tuner. &nbsp;New receiver arrives. &nbsp;(Now I can hear both channels.) &nbsp;Right speaker is fuzzy, almost unintelligible. &nbsp;Hunh? &nbsp;Is it the brand new receiver? &nbsp;Nope, after swapping speaker wires bad sound is out of same speaker. &nbsp;What gives?

So, did the old amp damage the speaker? &nbsp;Did the speaker damage the old amp? &nbsp;Or, did the speaker just die a slow death?</font>

<font color='#000000'>I'm going to hazard a guess: At some point in the past you've overdriven your old speakers. &nbsp;For home listeners it's usually a case of too little power (wattage) driving speakers with a distorted signal. &nbsp;Fortunately, good speakers are increasingly inexpensive.</font>
