What wires can I use for my Theater Research TR-1500 speakers?

Unless the wires were equipped with specific connectors, ordinary speaker wire will do.

Find a JBL n24aw replacement speaker

Looks like the woofer is a 4" Polyplas shielded driver, part #NS-W4SS, 4 ohms. If JBL can't supply a replacement try looking at Madisound or Partsexpress. Find a 4" 4 ohm woofer or mid-bass driver with a round frame. Check the actual measurements against your driver because not all "4 inch" drivers are the same size or bolt pattern. Make sure the depth will fit. You don't need "shielded" unless the speakers will be right up against a CRT (and nobody uses CRTs these days). Get a pair and replace both because the new driver certainly won't match the old.

Take a look at the Dayton Audio RS100-4 from Parts Express (or Amazon). The Hi-Vi M4N from Madisound "may" work but it is 8 ohms.

  • If it were me i would go with this. $60usd not a bad deal and it looks like they throw a crossover in with it. It is actually the amp meant for your speakers.

Just bought second hand Mercury MX4-M in visibly good condition. Very little dust visible on cabinet and cones behind the grills. On closer inspection I can see one of the tweeters have oily substance...

The oily coating you see is a damping compound applied by the company to make the sound smooth and less edgy or harsh.Cheaper speakers most of the time sound bright and progressing on to a Hi Fi speakers take time getting used to.In the long run you will realize you will get lesser ear fatigue listening to good Hi Fi speakers .
One test to confirm if the tweeters are working all right is to play a blank FM channel with the FM mute released ( FM mode on Mono ). Turn up the Amplifier volume and you will hear a loud hiss ( like standing next to a waterfall ). Turn the balance control towards each speaker and see if they sound identical.
Next remove the grill and cup the dome tweeter with your hand with out touching the dome itself to block the hi frequency sound, it should sound dull. And when you remove your hand should sound hissy and sharp.Try to do this with the balance control turned towards your speaker.
Sound is very subjective and personnel like taste, don't let anybody talk you into deciding which is better for you.

No sound conning out of speakers from wharfdale mixer

Speakers are working OK otherwise?
Do you get sound from headphone jack?
It's probably some pot control not turned up.
Is MAIN OUT turned up
Are speakers connected to monitor out or main out.?
Is gain for mic turned up?
Is there a MAIN OUT switch (on/off)?
Is there a MUTE control on the board?

since it is a powered speaker, probably it just needs a sound signal which you can get from the headphone socket. please double check with someone else.
