1)Clean the heat sinks on the amp on the back of the speaker,
2) carefully remove the amp from the rear of the cabinet and look for 'crispy critters' on the circuit board. If you see 'um, either take the amp to a service center, or go to your dealer and get him to order you a new one.
3) if you're goin' thermal, either get higher powered speakers, or tune it back a bit with these. I have a set that has run years in a dance room with no problems. If you are stretching the system to cover a bigger audience, think about another pair.

Mackie SRM 450, the main speaker has stopped working but the tweeter is OK, there is nothing coming from the speaker at all, no hiss, or clicks.


It could be 2 things:

*Blown Speaker or,
*Fried power amp output stage of woofer, since this speaker operates as a bi-amplified system it has separate amps for woofer/tweeter...

Mackie SRM-450 tweeter distorts sound


I'd just order a new diaphragm and see if that's the problem before any other dismantling. If that's not the problem, I'd take it to a certified repair shop. The fact that it's still working but not producing certain frqs,tells me you won't be able to see the problem with the naked eye.
