Celestion Ditton 442 broken tweeter

One of my old Celestion Ditton 442 tweeters is broken. I have sent it to be fixed but they did not do a good job: it sounds much less than the other one. Is there any way I can solve this? Is there any replacement tweeter I could use? Than you!

    Exactly the same here. If we could identify a modern replacement, maybe that would do instead.

Hi Lewsville,
Assuming after more than 6 months you still have the same problem...
The most likely explanation is that the voice coil is burnt out. This will definitely affect sound quality and will probably deteriorate over time. Cleaning won't fix this problem. You'll probably need to get the speakers re-coned by a speaker technician.

Tweeter no sound but speaker no problem


In the most general, basic sense, I would be assuming that this is just one speaker and not 2 with this problem, or 3 or more.
Only way to get the ball rolling is pull the tweeter from the cabinet, checking to make sure all wires are connected at the tweeter and inside the speaker.
If that is the case, then you would need to determine if this is the tweeters fault, or its crossover (thing that divides the sound into whats right for the woofer and what the tweeter wants).
If you have a multi-meter, you would disconnect the wires from the tweeter, set the meter to ohms and touch a probe to each speaker terminal. No action means burned out tweeter, 100% action means burned out tweeter, a reading slightly less than the rating on the back of the tweeter (for instance an 8 ohm tweeter would show anywhere from 6 to 8 ohms on the meter) means tweeter is good.
If you have no meter then take the tweeter from the good speaker and swap in place of the bad one, making sure you respect + and - connections.Its a little risky this way,since if there is something wrong in the speaker it may hurt the good tweeter..(the meter is the safer bet). If it works, then you need a replacement tweeter, if not the problem is either wire connections inside the speaker, or something is wrong with the crossover.

I had a party last weekend, and someone put their finger into the tweeter for my celestion a2.it is dented but still works. are there any shops that do spare tweeters for those speakers? i really hope...


If you have little kids the center of a tweeter is the perfect place to poke, And wow it dents just like that. Hears a tip. Get some black electrical tape and cut a piece just big enough to fit on the dent, leave a tail piece to hold on to, Then with a quick yank pull the tape directly toward you. this in most cases will pull the dent out clean. There are some cases where leaving the dent may cause distortion in the first harmonic however this is very small so the dent though ugly , presents no problem. THE GREAT OZ.

No sound from Celestion F20 subwoofer. Tweeter is OK, and so is the other speaker in the pair. Wiring OK as switched speakers around to test.


Since these can be bi-amped or bi-wired (and you don't indicate if that is the case) you need to make sure the jumpers are secure (see the last picture http://archiwumallegro.pl/celestion_f20-1062028198.html) or (if the jumpers are removed) that you have viable amplifier signals coming to each speaker within the cabinet.

The sound from my home stereo sounds muffled. I checked for loose wires but did not find any. I have Celestion 15 speakers - they are about fifteen years old.


Muffled sound? Like no treble? Wires wouldn't cause it. Could be bad tweeters.

More specific details re: electronics, source(s) might help.

Tweeter not working


Check the continuity of the removed tweeter with a VOM meter (I use an original Heatkit MM-1 available on eBay for $20) and do the 1.5 volt battery click & scratch test mentioned above.

Celestion A3 tweeters (also used in the A1 and A2 speakers) or the replacement diaphragms are no longer available from Celestion. A1 speakers show up regularly on the United Kingdom eBay website for $300 or less and are small enough to economically ship to the USA. You would also end up with a midrange spare speaker (assuming it is the same as in the A3 cabinets)

The part number for the A series 3 bar tweeter is T4969/P. The 3 bars refers to the 3 bars in the casting to protect the dome. I got this number from the box of my spare tweeter I have the earlier 1 bar castings in my A3's.

Go to www.ersatzteil-versand.at do an "artikelsuche" (article search) for the number T4969/P and something extremeley similar shows up except that they list the manufacturer as Onkyo. The part number and description are so similar to what is printed on my spare tweeter box it would be worth 81 euros to see what shows up.
I have designed an adapter plate for either a Scan-Speak Revelator Tweeter D2904/710002 4 ohm, 1" soft dome, 70 mm diameter magnet, $220 or a Vifa D27TG35-06 6 ohms, 72 mm diameter magnet, 91 db, $37.50..Both are available from:
http://www.speakercity.com/ in Burbank, CA

I only modeled the front flange of the tweeter to save time. I have not built any of these yet but the price would probably be $400 for a pair of adapter plates and speaker flange modifications. But when you are done you would have replaceable tweeter for a long time to come. The 2 protective bars are drawer handles available for $3 each.

Other possibilities are:
http://www.audioloudspeakers.co.uk/boultons.shtml voice coil rewinding in the uk

http://www.speaker-repairs.com.au/coils.htm voice coil rewinding in australia

http://www.speakerex.com/diaphragms_new.html in Florida can rebuild the woofer and replace the midrange but no longer have the 4 ohm diaphragm for the tweeter.

If you want the drawings (and 3D geometry file necessary for the machinist to make the curved edges) for the adapter plate and tweeter flange modification contact me at mercedes280se-4@yahoo.com

High buzzing sound coming from tweeter


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

Tweeters poked to death


I know this sounds silly, but I had the same problem. Your speakers have a little plastic bulb that has been pushed in, right?

If so, simply put your mouth up to the tweeter, seal with your lips and **** gently (seriously). The tweeter dome should pop back out and in to shape.

It worked for me.

Good luck.
