    Using the expert advice given in this NG I was able
    this past weekend to remove the right rear speaker
    out of the rear deck(or hat deck) of my S70 equipped
    with the SC-816 sound system.

    Upon inspection of the speaker I could find no _visible_
    maladies, but, could hear a distinct "click" when I
    gently pushed the woofer down with my fingers. Something
    the left speaker did not have. The problem, it appears,
    seems to be in the multiple circle(my best description)
    area beneath the driver.

    Curious, I did a Google search on S70 Speaker and found
    more than I thought I would from others posting to this
    NG over the years questions regarding a "blown" speaker
    or other words describing the same problem I have.

    Now, to tap the wealth of knowledge in this NG, what would
    be the best solution here? Replace it with a new OEM from
    Volvo, running the risk of a repeat with the left speaker?
    Or, go "aftermarket"? Anyone aware of the price from Volvo
    for the rear speaker(s)?

    TIA for any advice.

    Surely you just change the two rear speakers over.
    If the problem then notates to the other side its the speaker if not its
    something in the door.
