Ohm Walsh 3

    The Walsh 3 was the least sensitive of the second generation Walsh speakers. In its compact cabinet, just slightly bigger than the Walsh 2, it had deeper bass and higher treble than even the Walsh 4 (but in small to medium sized rooms only). We used real wood veneer cabinets with an Ohm logo on the upper corner and a Walsh 3 logo next to it on the next side. There were 3 controls on the bottom, one to match the bass response to your room size (down for very small rooms, up for medium rooms and in the middle for small sized rooms.) The third control was for perspective.

    The speakers should be set up so the Ohm logo is on the front of the left speaker and the Walsh 3 logo on the front of the right speaker. Placed 6 to 8 feet apart and about 1 foot from the wall give the smoothest bass and best imaging.

    Low Repair

    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.

    $300
    High Repair

    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.

    $200
    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.

    $75
    Grill

    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.

    $170 4
    Crossover

    The crossover is the electrical circuit that protects the tweeters from the low frequency energy that is reproduced by the main drivers. This can only fail, in rare instances, from overdriving the speakers.

    • The driver can be upgraded to the new the Walsh 3000 which allows for the bass to be extended down and the treble to have wider dispersion. All necessary parts can be installed with a screwdriver and hot glue gun and takes only 20 minutes. The upgrade comes with a 3 Year Limited Parts & Labor Warranty, assuring you of years of listening pleasure. You also get a 60-Day Home Trial to be certain you are satisfied with these upgrades.

      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 $1195 for the return of a complete undamaged pair of Ohm 3s toward 25% of the purchase price of new Ohm speakers.
