Hi,i hear alot about bi wireing could someone explain what it actually is used for and what's it meant to do could I'm thinking bout trying it on my speakers?


It's a big job, but the results are great. Bi amp-ing is where the tweeters and mid range speakers are separated and connected to separate amplifiers. You'll need to have the correct gear before messing inside your speakers. You'll need to have another amplifier. Not knowing what amp you have now, getting a stereo signal into the second amp may be a problem since you'll need a line level signal into the second amp. An external crossover is best. Technically, you could use the ones in the speakers, since you'll be removing them anyway. Now for the speaker mods: On the panel where the posts for the speaker wires are you'll need to install another set of binding posts. We're assuming you have separate subs. Open the speakers and remove the cross over. The wires from the original posts should now connect to the mid range speaker. Add wires from the second set of posts and wire it to the tweeters. Now connect the output of the amp to the removed cross over and wire the mid range out on the cross over to the posts that connect to the mid range speaker. Do the same for the tweeters.If you have three way speakers, you'll have to run a 3rd set of wires from the crossover to the woofers in the cabinet using another set of binding posts. Controlling the volume on the second amp will be difficult since you'll have to adjust it manually. Remote control volume level will be lost on the second amp.

Hooking up speakers


first off stock wiring for speakers,and or amp are with minimal wiring.Rewire system for better sound quality,also use noise suppresors if needed.

Tweeter wires burns up tweeter when connect to it


I'm Serge.I'm a professionnel electro-tecnicien with my diploma. Anyone who have a question,i'll answer,FREE . i have my reasons for doing this. You are getting cc or dc voltage in your tweeter and it blows.Your tweetter amps is defect.Make it fix and be carefull.That type of circuit is very very sensible and technic and double layer printed circuit.By the way check the bass amp also.Thank's Serge.

I have the MHC-GX9000 and Im not sure what settings to place my EQ levels at? The mid, the low and the high? Any kind of help here will be appreciated! I've been adjusting it for two days and I...


  • It's all by ear. Every person is different. I like to turn the low up all the way. That's the base. I turn the highs almost all the way up and the mid levels midway between the middle and all the way to the top. above midway. This makes it loud with bass and the high pitch of a tweeter so you can hear the words and instrumentals and the mid levels can be heard still. This is best served for rock and rap. Classical and jazz you want the highs all the way up and the mid levels about midway and the lows about half way between all the way and midway. this make it loud but puts the emphasis on the instrumentals.

No sound from tweeter bx5a


First of all, never connect the audio from your receiver directly to the tweeter. You can blow the tweeter instantly. The mid-bass driver can be damaged from a direct connection as well.

Since you get absolutely no sound from either driver, this seems to implicate the crossover. If the crossover has opened, no signal gets through, if it has opened early in the signal path.

But, it is also possible that a short exists, and that perhaps your amp cuts off the output having sensed a short. The short could be in the crossover or one of the drivers.

Here are some troubleshooting tips--

To prevent damage to your amp, turn it off while making or breaking any connections inside the speaker boxes.

Write down which wires get connected to which place on the drivers, so you can get them back where they belong.

With your amp turned off, connect the bad speaker to your amp. You've already verified that no sound is produced when both drivers are connected.

So, with your amp off, disconnect one wire from the tweeter in the bad box.

Briefly turn your amp on and listen for sound.

If you get sound, the tweeter is shorted.

If you get no sound, with the amp off, reconnect the tweeter in the bad box and disconnect one wire from the mid-bass driver.

Briefly turn the amp on and listen before turning the amp off.

If you get sound now, but not before, the mid-bass driver is shorted.

If you got no sound either way, check the DC resistance of the mid-bass driver (only, not the tweeter. Ohmmeters put out a small DC voltage to test resistance. That DC voltage might damage a tweeter, maybe. Don't risk it). Ohm the mid-bass driver while it is not connected to the crossover. If the driver is good, you should read some ohms--a little less than the stated impedance. An 8 ohm driver might read 6.5 ohms, for instance. If you get an open or a short (with the crossover disconnected from the mid-bass driver) you have a blown driver. Two actually, since neither the tweeter nor the mid-bass driver produced any sound in the previous tests.

If you can't get ahold of an ohmmeter, try this--

Open the good, working speaker and place the two side by side.

Connect your amp to the bad speaker box only.

With your amp turned off, disconnect the wires from the mid-bass driver in the bad box and connect them to the mid-bass driver in the good box. Disconnect one of the wires from the "good" mid-bass driver first, so you don't have two crossovers connected to it at the same time--even if only one of them will get powered on. It keeps the confusion down to a minimum when trying to isolate your problem. Oh, and disconnect one wire from the bad tweeter, in case it is shorted.

Turn the amp on and listen briefly before turning the amp off.

If you got sound, the "bad" crossover is fine, but the "bad" mid-bass driver is blown. And, since you got no sound in the previous tests, the "bad" tweeter is blown, as well.

If you got no sound, try it the other way around. Meaning--

With the amp off, disconnect the speaker wires coming from your amp from the bad speaker box and connect them to the good speaker box.

Your amp is now connected only to the good speaker box.

With the amp still off, connect the mid-bass wires from the good box to the mid-bass driver in the bad box. Remember to disconnect one of the "bad" crossover wires from its own driver first, so only one crossover is connected to the "bad" mid-midbass driver. Remember to disconnect one wire from the "good" and "bad" tweeters, so the only sound you hear--if any--is from the "bad" mid-bass driver, powered by the "good" crossover.

If this produces sound, but the previous attempts failed, you have a crossover problem.

If you still get no sound, something went wrong and you need to retest the good speaker by itself and back up a few steps and try again.

Assuming you got sound from the "good" crossover while it was driving your "bad" mid-bass, make sure no wires have come loose inside the "bad" box. Assuming you have sound connections at each end of each wire, you now need to desolder the electrolytic capacitors from the circuit board.

Make sure you mark them first, so you can put them back where they belong.

You can remove only one at a time, if that helps.

Use an ohmmeter to check some components.

The big red coil should read pretty close to a short, maybe one ohm.

The capacitors should read open or infinite resistance, although you might see a steadily increasing resistance while the capacitor charges up from the ohmmeter. If you read a steady low resistance on a capacitor after it has been removed from the circuit board, that capacitor is bad and must be replaced. The markings on the capacitor should give you some clues as to the proper replacement.

All things considered, I suspect that your problem is a shorted electrolytic capacitor. But, I gave you all I could think of so you can narrow it down and isolate the problem, whatever it might be.

I hope this helps.

System just got hooked a couple months ago and was listing to it loud and the sub quit working no blown fuses and amp light on but no sub it did it once before and had to turn off car to get sub back on


You probably blew out the sub, the larger speakers are more at risk to distortion are high output levels. The amp can no longer maintain its true output and begins passing voltage to the sub and the cone over travels or the winding burns out. You can try gently pushing on the sub membrane to see if it moves in and out easily, it may be stuck and you can free it up. If that doesn't work, remove from system and check the coil with an ohm meter resistance. it should read a low ohm value. If high value, it's blown and you need a replacement. It is also possible you blew the network that sends the lows to the sub and the high to the mid range and tweeters, check the sub first.

Can't get wharfedale melton 2 tweeter to work. Looked inside cabinet and need advice on internal wiring please. These are very old but one works perfectly and the 12'' bass driver on the problem speaker is...


The tweeter has burned out and cannot be salvaged. I also own a pair of (ex) Melton 2s. In the beginning Wharfedale were good at supplying spares (see www.wharfedale.co.uk for contact info and advice). A few years ago after my cat destroyed the 12 inch unit in one, i invested in new insides, including state of the art 12 inch woofers, 4 inch mid range and 1inch tweeters with a good 3 way crossover. The cabinet is great so consider asking a techie friend to do this for you. Please don't just cut out and connect to amp speaker wires! You will get terrible sound and risk ruining both amp and speakers! Best regards Karl (karl@simpson.nom.fr)

My subwoofers don't perform consistantly. Sometimes they work flawlessly, other times they make a loud thumping that is not coming from the music (but it does interfere with the music). To be more...


Try turning the gain, or output level down on the amp, if that doesnt solve the problem then check the aux wires and the remote wire for shorts...
