First,try switching to a different output(if this is the left speaker,switch it to the right)if it does the same thing,then we need to pull the back off the speaker.to make sure the crossover is not bad your gonna want to unplug the horn & put a signal to it from your source(do this at a low volume with the bass turned down & trble turned up)if you have sound then there is a problem with the crossover(this is the pc board in the enclosure that connects to the speakers)if not your horn is gone.hope this helps,thanx for using fix.please rate all replys

I have 3 behringer b615d and all of them the horn speaker have spot playing. do you know what could be the problem


Generally, there are two possible problems- The horn diaphragm is blown or the power amp to the horn is broken. The diaphragm being blown is more likely. Remove the driver and run a voltmeter across the terminals. If it doesn't show continuity, replace the diaphragm. If it does show continuity, take the cabinet to the repair shop.

Where can i buy a horn for a ev sx 300? how much?


You don't "buy a horn" as the horn itself is molded into the case and if the case is smashed that is fatal.

If it is the sctive element for the tweeter/mid you are after, the correct terminology is "compression driver". That should aid your search.

It is best to go directely to EV to get an exact replacement for this. Or try to find one at this site:

They vary from about $30 to $500.

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.

Horn won't work what would cause this


1 Defective horn button
2 horn froze up needs to be adjusted on the side screw
3 Fuse blown
4 horn relay bad
5. Steering wheel inner button or split ring worn out.
6. Steering wheel wireing harness worn out (Least Likely)
If you need help to check these let me know and thanks for using fix-ya

No sound from EV SH-1502 ER 15" driver


Either the 15" speaker is dead, or the passive crossover inside the unit. The simplest way to identify your problem is to remover the speaker that isn't working from the enclosure, and exchange it with the speaker that is working. If there's no sound still, it's the speaker itself that is the problem. If it works in the other cabinet, then put the "working" speaker in the cabinet you took the "bad" speaker out of, and if it doesn't work, then there's a problem with the crossover in the first cabinet. I believe you can buy a replacement crossover from EV. If it's your speaker, do a google search for "speaker re-coning" in your area - it's cheaper to re-cone the speaker than buy a new one.

Eltax speaker problems


I agree, NE Speaker is the BEST repair speaker shop in the eastern half of the USA. I have an EV 12" speaker re-built there and its better than it was before it was blown. Great job NE Speaker!!!
