What ohm and watt speakers can I use with a craig CM402 cd am fm player? It came without them


Speaker requirements are likely to be 8 ohm, most modern hi-fi speakers are. A few low-fi systems have used special high impedance speakers and the old hi-fi standard for valve amplifiers was 15 ohm and 3 ohm or lower has been used in televisions a lot.

4 ohm speakers are commonly used where a higher power output is desired at the cost of some quality of sound reproduction but depending on how the sound is listened to can soon overload some amplifiers primarily designed for 8 ohm as it will try and deliver more power into the lower impedance speakers and perhaps exceed the rating.

8 ohms is a safer choice. The lower the wattage rating of the speakers the more efficiently they tend to be able to reproduce sound at low volume levels so for background music in a small domestic environment the average power requirement will be in the order of half a watt so even with a high powered amplifier the volume would rarely be turned up above 1 - 2 on the typical scale of 10 and ten watt speakers would be more than adequate. It is unfortunate that it is almost impossible to obtain quality speakers rated at such an unfashionably low power rating.

With the stiffer cones of a higher power rated speakers the volume has to be turned higher before the speakers become efficient and listening at low levels can be difficult. In a domestic environment a 50 watt rating is perhaps the best compromise as if there are neighbours to consider a ten watt average power output will be sufficient even if the amplifier is capable of higher powers. Just don't turn the volume up more than necessary.

The greater the power rating the more power will be required for efficient reproduction. For electrical and mechanical safety of the speakers the rating should exceed the maximum output of the amplifier but listening at low levels with quality of sound can become virtually impossible.

It is all a matter of taste and environment.

If the speakers vibrate especially when the mega bass is on, does that mean that the speakers are blown on my icf-cdk50?


Real low bass is mostly vibration. Anything that has a "mega bass" 'enancement' is cutting corners to make up for bass-reproduction shortcomings. Speakers measuring 2-5/8' have no business reproducing real bass. Blown speakers would be silent. Torn cones from excessive volume might sound like unwanted vibration. Your vibration might be a resonance of the unit's own housing, mounting hardware or something nearby. Try moving it to another location.

These units are not economically repairable. If you like it and you think it's broken you might snag a whole new on on eBay with wise bidding.

Can't get wharfedale melton 2 tweeter to work. Looked inside cabinet and need advice on internal wiring please. These are very old, but one works perfectly and the 12'' bass driver on the problem speaker...


All the electronic parts you can see inside the speaker (usually capacitors, coils and resistors) are responsible for breaking the full audio band (bass - middle - treble) in parts (2 for your case) and feed each part to the appropriate speaker. By that I mean that you must not use your speaker without the cross-over (this is the name of the circuit) since this can harm your speakers. The sound from a speaker without crossover will be terrible for your ears too. Eventhually you can try to connect your tweeterat the amplifier's output leads, assuming that the volume level will be very low. Using this connection you can just check if the tweeter is working ok or not, so you can find where is the problem. By the way I don't think that a coil is burned out, try to see some resistor possible burned out.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

My left speaker to my Sony HCD-GX450 stereo is


Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.

Volume Knob busted


The problom with this is the volume on/off control is of low quality and does go bad. The part was discontinued in 2009 and is no longer avalible

syntoms include: no power on or off , no sound or volume control of any kind

solution: there is only one solution and it is to replace the switch, however because of the small size of the original switch it is very hard to find a suitable replacement.
