Well amazingly it was working, but I think its time to bury it.
Unless Bryce can put a new cone in it.  :D
I only found out it was like this because I change the tape drive belt.
Lucky I am, it could have led me to thinking I fried my sound chip when it died completely..

That could be it... you start coding and then the bugs make these sort of things. That is why I usually program in an emulator  :laugh:

It's a standard speaker from impedance and dimensions, used in thousands of devices. Not worth restoring.

Maybe standard cheapest speaker that you could get for 1 pence. It's this awful speaker fault that we have so many games with bad sound. Games programmed to get the best sound possible with this speaker,  instead of programmed for external hi-fi speakers. The AY could have sounded much better. Instead it used only 10% of its potential... Now where is that pinball game?

Well, that's something nice to replace... anyone knows of something better that could be used as a replacement?
