    KLH Marlboro speakers from about 1975.
    Worked great until recently: the tweeter in one buzzes/crackles a bit, especially with high orchestral sounds.

You have to give the tweeter a good old juicy **** and it will go back to normal.

No sound from one tweeter


Could be an open capacitor in the cross-over, unconnected wire to the tweeter (not likely) or a blown (open) voicecoil in the tweeter. Remove the tweeter and with a 9 volt battery (even run down but not dead will work) quickly touch it to the connections to the tweeter - it should pop and crackle. No static, the tweeter has sung it's last song.

I have a problem with the tweeter sound in one of my VR975 Boston speakers. The highs seem to come and go. It is definitely limited to one of the speakers because I can switch cable connections in the...

A loose or intermittent cable contact on the OUTSIDE would affect ALL speaker output, not just the high frequencies, and it would probably produce speaker-threatening crackles.

That loose tweeter connection the other guys found isn't fixed. Go back and make them fix it right.

What are your present speaker connection ends if NOT bare wire?

See if you can isolate the buzz to one woofer or tweeter. If a woofer, gently and evenly move the cone in and release to feel / listen for scraping. If you notice any scraping, the voice coil could be shot - a small bobbin of copper wire may have deformed andis now rubbing. Occasionally if a speaker is dropped, the magnet can shift, which will then rub the coil.

In any case, if there is coil rub that causes the buzz, you need to replace that driver.

If the buzz is electronic in nature, assuming these are the powered versions, a qualified service tech will have to diagnose and repair.

Hello there i have a mackie srm 450 speaker system and im not getting any high end tweeter sounds just bass only what coule be the problem manay thanks Paulie


The most common cause of this is a blown horn. A replacement can be ordered from Mackie directly. Remove the screws that hold the plastic horn in place. At the rear of this part will be the tweeter assembly that unscrews from the horn. This needs to be replaced.

Another possibility is that the tweeter driver has broken from the horn itself and is inside the cabinet. Remove the horn and you may find that the aluminum part has broken. Replace the horn which comes with that part and you should be fine.

Hi i am looking for some motorola tweeters for dj speakers do you still do these


If you're looking for new tweeters, I'd start at e-bay, see if there's any that are matched with yours.

If not, look for (I presume) compression drivers, with the correct sensitivity (sound output at 1 watt) to your woofers. You may need to purchase an adaptor to make the new ones fit the horn.

Also, try to match impedance - if the old ones were 8 ohm, look for new ones that are 8 ohm. Use something different, and the crossover point won't be what's intended. It will either come in an octave too low (the tweeter would die) or too high (big hole in the frequency response).

Outta phase? if a tweeter is out will make sub distort?


A Tweeter being out of phase should not have any effect on the sub.

If one tweeter is out of phase with the other there will still be sound in the room as due to the high frequency the unequal time to your ear will mean you won't get perfect destructive interference and the signals won't cancel. Also the two tweeter signals convey much less information in common than a subwoofer or bass speaker.

Tweeters & Midrange Speakers


If you have a Ohm Meter, check the resistance to the speakers. If it is very high, the speakers are burned, (or the crossover is (just capacitors, and resisters...cheap)). If it is close to 4 ohms check the wiring and connectors..to and at the speakers, most likly the receiver/amp is not blown.
