Hi. If you have an digital multimeter to hand you could always drop the drive unit (the metalwork with the paper cone) out from the enclosure and make sure the resistance of the voice coil is between 4-16 ohms. If there is no reading then the voice coil could be open circuit and the whole drive unit will need to be replaced. If the others rattle check the mounting screws are not slackened off. Especially if you have been driving them hard!

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.

Wharfedale Modus one six - one woofer cone is cracked. It still plays, but needs to be replaced. Where can I buy a replacement, or is it possible to repair the cone?


Yes, you can bring it to electronic repair shop to rewind the coil. or buy it in the electronic shop. if they don't have same brand you can replaced it with other brand same size and same watts of speakers. thanks

Is the tweeter a stand alone 8 ohm speaker?


yes, but it is attached to circuitry that allows only the high frequecies into it. You can replace the speaker with any 8 ohm tweeter without any difficulty, but if there is a capacitor across or in series with the speaker, make sure you put it on you new speaker the same way.

Ok..... I have some Wharfedale Modus 8s. My question is, is that the base speaker is crackling a bit. typically when you don't have enough power the tweeters will clip first and go out. perhaps i did...


Dunno how old they are, but I just had an 11-year old pair of woofers re-edged because the foam surround and the adhesive had deteriorated. Upon close inspection the foam surround was noticeably pulled away from the cone in a few spots. Unfortunately, if there is an age-related issue with materials beneath the surface that you can't see, you'd have to pull the driver to check it out.

It wasn't until I turned my bass up loud that anything sounded wrong, which precipitated looking for the culprit (quickly found).

Modus One Six spare parts


You may want to check ebay, they sometimes have drivers for sale. Additionally, I would contact IAG (International Audio Group). They are the distributor for Wharfedale here in the states and may be able to help you. I also have the modus one-sixes, modus-two's, and modus center and was albe to get replacement parts from IAG, never needed a driver though. How did you blow it anyhow, these speakers can take a beating, are you using a quality amp? Underpowering the speakers and trying to drive them loudly = demise for your speakers.

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

Tweeters only works when touched!


This is not a solution, but I have the same problem. Obviously, the problem is with the tweeter not the crossover. I can't find a replacement tweeter so i am about to take it to my local stereo repair store and see if they can fix it. If you find a replacement tweeter, let me know.
