    I emailed Paradigm.ca yesterday, but I'm yet to have a response from them.

    Does anybody know if there's anywhere in the UK where I can replace a blown tweeter for my CC-350 centre speaker?

    It took me a while to establish what was wrong. Initially I thought it was an amp problem - It sounded fine in stereo, but muffled in surround modes, there I was thinking the processor was dicky, then the penny dropped!

    TIA

    All Paradigms were imported via Richer Sounds so have a word with them

    For how cheap CC-350s are second hand I'd forget about going down the replacement part route, Richer Sounds are notoriously slow when it comes to Paradigm due mostly in part to shipments every few months or so. You have to ask yourself is it worth waiting for perhaps more than a month for a part or just getting a second hand model, I'd choose the latter option but that's just me.

    As someone who has had 2 Paradigm setups in the last 5 years I speak from experience regarding the waiting, the last order took 7 months from initial request to picking them up I kid you not :eek:

    Yeah, the problem with a box shifter like Richer is the liklihood of them not giving the service that could be expected from Sevenoaks or similar. I know if I go to see them I'm only going to get a hard sell on an Eltax centre or something. ;) Still, I'll give them a call in the morning to see what they can do.

    I know what you mean by buying 2nd hand. I have three CC-350s, I use two as rears. I paid £40 each for them, and they've given cracking value for money. What with the Monitor 7 fronts, and the PS1000 sub I bought from you (Apocalypse) it's by far the best 'sound for the pound' speaker system I've ever owned.

    I'll place a wanted ad on the classifieds and see if my luck's in.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Didn't realise it was you with that new username, glad the sub is still ok despite it's bumpy transit ;)

    EH? You had two for sale, I sent a mate of mine who's moved to Sheffield to collect that one for me.

    It's still working well though. :)
