If there is very little sound and it is scratchy, buzzy, or it rattles in the low frequency range, then a low repair is necessary. We must receive both speakers from you so that we can match them both to the good one.
When the system is very dull sounding but most of the sound is acceptable, it usually indicates that a high repair is necessary. Sometimes this is only noticed when one speaker is compared to another. We must receive both of your drivers so that we can match them both to the good one.
Repair/Replace Metal Can
The metal can is the protective cover enclosing the driver. This should not be removed except at the Ohm factory. If third-party repairs are attempted, the final repair cost will be higher to fix whatever additional damage is done. However, a small cosmetic dent in the area opposite the wires will have no effect on the sound. These are sold and installed only at the factory after the drivers have been tested and found to be working properly..
The grill is the cloth and frame used to cosmetically conceal the drivers without affecting the sound. Ohm now uses black grills in almost all cases. In the past, brown and brown/black mixes were used. Now they are all black. The latest style uses wood and perforated metal like the thousand series. The new ones also have no seams. They are much nicer looking than the originals.
Replace Total Driver
The total driver is the perforated metal can including all its internal parts. This option is most often used to replace lost drivers. We still need to get the other one back to make sure they are properly matched.
Upgrade to SW200.3000 / pair
You can get new drivers, new input cups, and vent adapters to bring performance past the Walsh 3000. The conversion takes about 15 minutes per speaker. You will enjoy deeper bass and wider dispersion in the treble. This upgrade should only be considered for rooms below 15’ x 25’ because the Walsh 3000 drivers are room optimized. This price includes the return of your old drivers in good condition. We send you the kit and you can use our boxes to return your old drivers. The upgrade kit comes with a 3 Year Limited Warranty on Parts & Labor.
Surround - Maintenance / pair
The original surrounds typically last 10 to 20 years while our new surrounds are projected to last up to 30 years. They give you better transition to the mid-range for smoother vocals. At the same time, we change the old dampening material on the inverted driver and re-balance the pair to ensure that they are properly matched and performing correctly.
(1) With the return of the original part for recycling within 60 days.
(2) With the return of the original part for recycling before the shipment of the new part.
(3) Recycled, repaired and tested.
(4) Per pair.
The Walsh 200 was the mid-size model of the straight sided tower Walsh speakers that replaced the truncated pyramid cabinets of the earlier Walsh speakers. It replaced both the 3XO and 4XO.
The Walsh 200 used real wood veneer cabinets with sharp 90 degree corners. They were made in matched mirror image pairs. There was an Ohm logo near one corner and a ”200” label next to it on the next side. When set up for peak performance, the Ohm logo was on the front of the left speaker and the ”200” on the front of the right speaker.
The speaker can be upgraded with Walsh 3000 driver and a vent adapter to tune the cabinet lower for deeper bass. A screwdriver is necessary for installation and takes only 10 minutes.
Note: Most Ohm upgrades require no specialized knowledge and are easily completed completed by any person. It takes less time to install your own upgrade than it does to package and return ship your speakers to the factory, therefore, we recommend you save time and money by doing this yourself. We ship the upgrade to your door with clear, easy instructions. If for any reason you prefer to have the factory complete your upgrade installation, we will be happy to do this for free, however, you will be responsible for shipping and handling costs each way.
Ohm allows up to $1895 for the return of a complete undamaged pair of Ohm 200s toward 25% of the purchase price of new Ohm speakers.
