SOURCE: karaoke speaker,no woofer or midrange working, only tweeter

Hi, it's probably that the 8" woofer and the midrange of the "amped" enclosure is open. One way to test is to remove just one wire from the inside of the enclosure to the woofer or midrange in question and with the use of a continuity tester (or a VOM), check for the resistance of the coil of each the 2 speakers. Both should read anywhere from 4-8 ohms, if there's no reading (VOM needle will not move) then the coil(s) are open. In the absence of a tester, a single AAA or AA battery would do (pls. some would argue that this is not a sound practice, however this should be enough for you to be able to determine the condition of the coil(s)). With the use of the battery and a single short length of electrical wire, apply power from the battery to the terminals of the speaker, if the cone moves, then chances are it is good, if they don't then you would have to replace it. Am not sure if available in your area, but there are some trained people who can rewind the coil should a replacement speaker be not readily available. Hope this be of help. Please let us know how things turn up. Regards.

SOURCE: Only tinny sound coming from the speaker MS904

The "tiny sound" may be a blown woofer you are only getting sound from your high section.

SOURCE: Hiss from the tweeter nothing from the sub

Trash. Don't run your bass through speakers not designed for it. Likewise (from personal experience) don't allow microphone feedback to get into consumer speakers. Bye-bye tweeters in either case.

My Behringer pmp2000 is now only giving an output through the tweeter horns of my speakers so the sound is very tinny. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


Your woofers are probably blown. To check plug a 1/4 inch or speakon into the speaker cabinet with the two bare wires exposed on the opposite end and touch with a 9volt flat battery if the driver doesn't move ir sound it's blown

I have a pair of Paradigm Monitor 3 V.2 High Def speakers for my front L&R home theater system. On speaker sounds very tinny with no bottom end. On inspection neither the main or tweeter loo


A few questions to help me help you: (1) Does the woofer cone move freely when you use your hands to move it (or do you feel friction)? (2) have you tried swapping the left speaker for the right to rule out the receiver as a cause?

42.1i passenger side rear has power but sound is very quiet and tinny. all 3 other speakers work fine.


It sounds like the woofer part of the speaker is bad, while the tweeter is still good. You are going to have to replace the speaker. Speakers are generally sold in pairs, so it would be best to replace both rear speakers at the same time.

No sound from the main cone mission m73


It sounds to me that there is something wrong with the crossover unit inside the speaker. These tend to use non-polar capacitors these sometimes fail, but it depends on how sophisticated the crossover is. It could use semi-conductors as well, which also fail.

I have Behinger Europort EPA900, One speaker crackles, tried swopping cables etc, but nothing helps, the problem seems to be definitely with the speaker.


Open the speaker and look for loose connections. Carefully move cone with fingers. If there is noise when doing so...rubbing type noise, speaker needs reconing or replacing. If the crackling comes from teh tweeter section, then the tweeter may need replacing.

I think one of my zx4s is blown. it sounds a bit fuzzy while the other one is clear. I could not seem to get enough volume out of my PA and my guitar pedal (which I plug into stereo channel in desk) seemed...


Yes speakers can be repaired... you need to find if it is the woofer or tweeter or both of them.... DO check that it is not the amp channel by swapping sides. Unless you connected too large an amp it should not have damaged the speaker... First isolate if it is the highs or lows that is fuzzy... also check that some debis has not been knocked loose... grilles are notorious and labels for vibrating.

I have just bought an amplifier for some old Kef speakers but the speakers sound very tinny. Does this mean they need replacing too?


It's not clear how the speakers sound with a different amp or if other speakers sound tinny with this amp. What's the source you're listening to? If it's Phono that opens up a different can of worms.

Can you certify that the electronics is faultless in this scenario? More info on that piece may be helpful.

The woofers could both be blown but I doubt it. Tweeters usally die if a speaker is overloaded. You should be able to see or feel the woofers vibrating in the presence of bass.

Output problem - i think


Based upon your description, I would suspect the speakers not the receiver. Typically, if the receiver was bad, there would be no sound at all. If the front end of the receiver was bad, this symptom could happen, but that is a rare problem. Can you try a different set of speakers? A or B won't make a difference from the receiver. Pleaes try another speaker set and update this with the results and we'll continue on from there.

Thanks,
Dan
