Question about Audio Players & Recorders
One day, a tweeter on my right floor standing speaker went out. So I tested its integrity by switching my right side tweeters to my left side floor standing tweeters. Then as it was switched and turn on, i smelled burning and now both tweeters stop working. Ordered a new sets of tweeters from Polks audio for exact same model and replaced them both. It still does not work. Any solutions?

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.

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.
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

Your new speakers are BiAmped, and if a woofer is not working then it is probably a fault in the amp or connection for that woofer, or the the woofer itself has a problem. If they are brand new, I suggest you take it back to purchase point to get sorted out. There is nothing that you can do that will NOT void your warranty. If you do not have a warranty, then get back to me here and we can work through the problem. Cheers

The tweater on my Q55.2 blew as well. I went into a shop in NYC and they tried to charge me $225 for a new tweater, so I took it home and called up Kef. They sent me out a new tweater for $35 and instructions on how to solder it in.
It took all of 10 mins to replace and they are working fine. I've never soldered anything before and it was simple.
