Cerwin vega at-100 crossover failed on one bass tone

My speakers sound different from one another. one of them is not as bassy as the other one . ive swapped the woofers around with the speaker boxes , and to my surprise the woofer with the other speaker box which wasnt as bassy became very bassy as it shud be. and the other woofer which was very bassy in the other speaker box lost some of it bass. which means the woofers are ok to me theres something wrong in the cross over

The problem is that the foam is affected by the ozone in the pollution we breath, it causes the foam to break down. It is less likely to happen with newer speakers since a minor change in formulation was made to prevent this from happening.
Solutions to your problem, there are two. First there are foam replacement kits that you can get. You remove the old foam and glue on a new replacement. The issue here is that there could be unseen damage to the voice coil, so it could be a short term replacement.
Second option is to replace the speakers, finding the exact Cerwin Vega replacement would be hard at best since the specific driver hasn't been made on 20 years. So you are left with finding a good replacement, that is where I come in, I have a universal 12" driver patterned after the Cerwin Vega woofer, so you will be able to retain the look of the speaker. Better though is that the speaker I have is a much better performer than the standard CV 12" woofer, and it will work in a 4 or 8 ohm system. You can read more about the product at http://www.mavin.com
Now the only true drawback you have is that being over seas, postage is going to drive up the price, and also you should always replace your drivers in pairs, so buy two. Given the age of your speakers if one is still working, it will go bad shortlyt due to the break down of the foam. Further when you change speakers in stereo pairs, both speakers should still sound the same since they contain the same components.

SOURCE: i have a set of cerwin vega ls-12 3way woofer works but tweeters

There is an old cheap way to test any speaker. If you have a multi-meter, set it on OHMS. Then, while holding one lead against one speaker terminal, tap the other meter lead to the other speaker terminal. If the speaker is good, you will hear faint crackles. If you do not have a meter do not despair, you can do the same test using an AA or AAA battery with leads held to the battery.
Good luck! P.S. Nice speakers.

Pull speaker so you can get to the terminals in back. Take an ohm meter and check the ohms of speake, a 4ohm speaker could measure up to 5ohms and still be good. If the reading is way off then it is blown. If speaker is good, then check the cross over thats in the speaker, some models put fuses on the units for protection, but mostley on the high frequency of the cross over, not the low.

I want to replace the capacitors on my Cerwin vega D5 speakers but have never done it before. I could help with parts and procedures. Thank you for your time, Rob


Well it is not an easy task to tweak crossover.If you just change capacitors,it could bring some advantages put probably will bring in the same time more unpleasant sound.If the old capacitor is MKT one then the new one should be MKT as well - if not you might get some frequences very loud and so unpleasant sound.MKP capacitoprs have very low resistance but mind the fact that the whole crossover was projected to use MKT capacitors.The same is for bas area - change electrolityc c with the same type but of good quolity - Mundorf maybe

VE-15 3-way floor standing speaker. Why does one of the midranges produce little or no sound?


Definitely the crossover. Follow the wiring back to see where it connects and see what is on the board.

Replacement woofers for Cerwin Vega HED 3way 12. Can I use woofers from the LS Series?


Absolutely, as long as they are the same impedance.
If you are unsure, use an ohmmeter to check the static impedance of the replacement speakers, and be sure that it is with in 2-3 ohms of the listed impedance of the speakers you are replacing (otherwise, your crossover points will be wrong).

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

No sound coming out of speakers on my cerwin vega


spurdoggg,
It will be easy to pin point the problem. If your satellite speakers have been connect through the sub's in and output speaker connectors, disconnect them and connect them directly to the source of sound. If the speakers work its the crossover inside the sub enclosure. If the speakers do not work the speakers are blown.

Only voice from tweeter is coming, nothing from the mid-range and woofers. on cerwin vega v10f


bhurajiv,
Well it's a good thing that you are getting sound from the tweeter from the speaker cabinet with the problem, that eliminates one of the possible problems; your wires are connected!

If your other speaker sounds fine, the first thing to try is to swap your speaker wires with the one that sounds fine. If the problem speaker cabinet still only produces sound from the tweeter, the problem is within the speaker. If the problem goes away, the problem is from your electronics.

If the problem is within your speaker and it is still under warranty, find a authorized repair location (http://www.cerwinvega.com/service_center.php).

Problems within the speaker can only be one or more of the following: 1) The drivers not producing sound have been blown; played with either too much power and/or distortion. Distortion is created when you play your music too loud with a amp not able to reproduce what you are looking for in sound, the speaker itself can hear it before you can.
2) The speaker cabinet has a crossover inside which directs the proper sounds to the proper driver. This crossover can have components that have been broken be either #1 or from exsessive vibration.
3) There are wires inside of the speaker cabinet that have been disconnected. This can happen over time or if someone reaches inside of the cabinet through the port and pulls on the wires; like a young child or pet such as cats.

If the drivers in question just one day stopped producing sound, start with the easiest solution, #3 then #1 if you can suspect anyone could have played your speakers other than you.

To diagnose the problem, you first start by removing the woofer and confirm that all of the wires are connected and in good condition. While the woofer is removed, to eliminate that there is a problem with the speakers, temporarily connect the mid-range and woofer, one at a time, directly to the wire coming from your electontics, if they produce sound the problem is within the crossover network, if they do not produce sound, the problem is with the driver itself. Replacement parts should only be purchased directly from Cerwin Vega directly (http://www.cerwinvega.com/contact_us.php)

Cerwin Vega V-10S Subwoofer doesn´t sounds good


dear "rai17"

This, to me, is most likely the voice coil inside the driver rubbung against the yolk plate, or possibly the spyder slapping the metal plate underneath it, or the amp-(if it has one?) getting tired. this can occur from poor build quality, or playing the subwoofer too loud. depending on how much it cost you, you may want to get it repaired(voice coil re-alignment or something or new amp). But the way it seems, it is probably the driver itself. subwoofers get looser as they break in. This one may have been over-broken....sorry

I hope this helped clarify what is happening!
