Here we go again....
Mike, try measuring the DC resistance of one of your Pro speaker elements.
It should be about 200 Ohms. If it is not, you have one of the older
versions of the Pro, and Heil will send replacement elements on request.
(You check the resistance by using an Ohmmeter across the phone
plug--ground ring to tip or middle ring.)
