Why is my subwoofer rattling?

Created: Jul 16 2018 | Updated: Aug 24 2018

If your subwoofer is making rattling noises at all or some frequencies, it is likely that the surround (the ring that connects your woofer cone to the basket) has deteriorated or the glue has come loose.  You can check this by removing the grill and inspecting the surround visually.  If a problem is found, you can contact our support team about your specific subwoofer.

Uncompromising performance. Unflinching accuracy. Unwavering reliability. Harnessing the myriad technical advantages of electrostatic principles to recreate sound in its truest form—this is what MartinLogan is all about.
