Http://www.partsexpress.com is a popular source for loudspeaker components.

Also, are you sure the tweeter's blown, and not a crossover component?

www.mouser.com carries many electronic components that could be used in crossovers.

Have 2 jbl 615 get good base and sub but neither tweeter playing


You will need to determine if it's the amplifiers or the tweeter themselves that are not working. If you open up the cabinets and check each tweeter with an ohm meter for continuity it will show if the tweeters are working, in which case the amp is the problem. if the meter shows that the tweeters are blown, you should still hook up another tweeter or speaker to the horn amp to see if it's blown and therefor took out the tweeters.
If any of this sounds complicated, you'd be best off taking the cabinets to the repair shop.

A replacement tweeter for Yamaha S215V speaker


I generally get replacements from Simply Speakers. Their site is-Replacement by Simply... Genuine Eminence Parts New
You can also just replace the diaphragm. The procedure is on YouTube here-

Be sure you check what impedence you need. If you look at the lable on the driver it will normally say, but if not ask them about your specific cabinet. For instance the 8 ohm single 15" Yamaha Club Series 4 uses a 16 ohm driver in their 8 ohm box.

You may not find an exact match, but you should be able to find a suitable replacement that is the correct size and impedance from SimplySpeakers.com :

I would recommend replacing both L & R tweeters, especially if its not an exact match replacement.

Polk rti6 tweers blown...4 speakers.....can these tweeters be repaired


It may be possible to have the tweeters repaired by Polk however if you have the skills your least expensive route would be to replace the tweeters and install them your self. I would recommend using the internet to find replacement tweeters either through Polk or possibly Ebay, or Amazon. Each tweeter has 2 wires that must be removed before uninstalling. Note the polarity and where they connect. red is + POSITIVE , BLACK IS - NEGATIVE

How do i tell if my problem if the high freq diaphram or the cross over


The crossovers in professional speakers don't fail that easily. It could be a blown tweeter. To confirm remove the metal grille-- remove the screws of the Horn Tweeter -- remove the cable connectors on the tweeter terminals ( Red and Black wire ). Now if you have a multimeter put it in Ohms range and touch the probes on the tweeter terminals-- It should show a reading betwwen 4 to 8 Ohms depending what is written on the back of the tweeter magnet. If you do not have a Multimeter you can take an ordinary cell/battery ( 1.5v ) from a TV remote and touch the terminals of the Horn Tweeter with the battery. + to the tweeter + ( a small red dot or mark will be there on the tweeter ) and -- to the tweeter -- . When you touch the terminals or give 1.5 volt supply the tweeter will make a scratching noise.
If you do not hear the scratching noise - it indicates a blown tweeter coil and will need replacement.See link below for spares:-

But if it does, you are in trouble and will need professional help from a electronic technician.
Could be blown HF Amplifier, suspect the crossover last. They seldom fail.

Need to replace 11L tweeter


the best solution I've found is this:
1. Remove all the tweeter screws.
2. Take a thing metal rod (a coat hanger should work) and lightly tap the tweeter through the top port in the rear until it is loosened and comes out. The tweeter is totally sealed so you probably won't damage it if you need to do this to a working tweeter.

This method also works for the woofer but you need to be very careful to tap the frame or magnet of the woofer and not the cone.

Wharfedale Modus One


The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.
See http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-speakers/4549-wharfedale-modus-one-six-crossover-pics.html
for pictures.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.

This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.

good luck Danny Mol
