One speaker is working fine, one has a slight problem that needs fixing. When you press on the cone lightly with your finger, it starts playing perfectly.
Please note, there is absolutely no physical damage to the cone or speaker. This problem started due to the speaker not being used for 1 full year during lockdown.
Repairing can be done at Lamington Road for approx. Rs.750 (Mumbai Folks)
If you are ok with the price and want to see a video displaying the problem, I can send the link/WhatsApp it to you.
Very good frequency response, goes down to roughly 70hz

FedEx Ground Shipping - Rs. 500 extra

Don't want to crap your thread, but what you're experiencing points to a detached tinsel lead. This is the small braided wire that goes from the connector assembly on the speaker to the back of the cone, at which point it penetrates the cone and comes out at the front. This tinsel lead is first soldered to the voice coil wire and then glue is used to secure the whole thing. Since the voice coil lead is delicate, faulty gluing, extreme stress or old age will cause the wire to physically break at this point and cause the intermittent issue you're facing.

Depending on where the break has occured, this could be a simple fix or completely unusable. Since it is next to impossible to solder a broken voice coil wire, a new coil might be required. And then you'll have significant mismatch between the two channels. Once again, I did not want to crap your thread but both you and your buyers need to be aware of what they're dealing with. Good luck with your sale :)
