Not sure who it was, who mentioned they had been 
in their Argonaut II recently, but upon closer inspection 
the entire top deck of these rigs is hinged, and 
swings up. (I am so disappointed with myself that I did 
not see this). As you face the rig with the skins off, 
you remove two 
screws on the right, and the deck is hinged on 
the left, and the entire deck will swing up and allow 
access to the screws 
that hold the speaker plate in place. Quick and simple 
swap out, so I did.

I replaced the speaker with another, and it seems to 
work FB now. I put the old one on a meter and it 
reads 4 ohms (as labeled, impedance-wise) but I did not 
try moving the coil to  see if I could induce some 
sort of short based on position of the voice coil. Still not 
sure what the failure mechanism was on the the original.
