Question about Music
Horn and speaker combo cabinets have an electronic component called a "crossover". The horn and speaker both work off different electrical signal frequencies. If you can take off the back, or get inside by pulling the speaker, check for a small circuit board mounted inside the box or on the speaker or horn. Check for a broken wire or loose connection of the crimp connectors.
A common problem with speakers, often the cone, or paper part of the speaker will come un-glued or separated from the magnet "voice coil". This happens when played too loud, when it's commected to the wrong impedance, or if the signal was shorted and "overdriven" (usually sounds like an awful buzz that's really loud).
Always make sure your output impedance matches the impedance of the speaker. Most auto stereos are 4 Ohms. Older home stereos are typically 8 Ohms. Musical PA gear varies between 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. Peavey gear is typicall 4 Ohms, but some older models are different. The Ohm rating is the amount of the resistance in the circuit. If your speaker is 4 Ohms and you plug it into an 8 Ohm circuit, you can destroy the speaker and sometimes the crossover circuit board.
