Re: my tweeter in my atlantic 500 isnt working.

If you did not hear any sound from the tweeter, but you did on the new one, the old one is bad my friend. I tried to find an original replacement for you but I could not find it. I did however speak to someone on your behalf about your problem. I was informed that if you call them at 1-877-732-5374 and give them the dimensions, they can get you a nice not too pricey replacement that should sound good to you. I was told they go for about 70 to 100 bucks. Good Luck

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.

The top part of the mackie speaker isnt working. all that is working is the big bottom part, and the sound sounds like the bass is the only thing coming out.

The typical cause of this is a blown tweeter or the tweeter has broken off of the horn and fallen inside the cabinet. Remove the screws from the horn and carefully remove the assembly. Try the speaker at low volumes to see if you hear any sound at all. Next, remove one of the wires and using a 9Volt battery quickly touch the 2 leads on the tweeter. If you don't hear a click, the tweeter needs to be replaced. Contact Mackie service for a replacement.

If you hear a click, then the problem is in the crossover or amp and further investigation willbe required.

I have wharfdale atlantic 400se. The tweeter is no longer working. How do i work out if it is a cross over or the tweeter

If there was a traumatic high-volume event that preceded this problem, I'd guess the tweeter died.

If you can access the connections on the tweeter and you have an ohmmeter, you could disconnect the tweeter and measure across the the terminals. A shorted or open voice coil = dead tweeter. A measurement near the stated impedance is probably ok.

If you have NO ohmmeter, you could carefully connect the output of one amplifier channel directly to the tweeter and just scooch the volume upward slightly from silence while playing something with very little bass in it. If you hear it, the tweeter is alive.

Quite new speakers 9.1 but the sound is very dull - sounds like tweeters are not working can these be repaired

You didn't answer if they ever worked right.

One doesn't usually judge tweeter function visually. They don't actually move much.

Take a cylindrical tube (like from a paper towel) and place it over the tweeter to isolate it from the room sound and the woofer, then place your ear at the other end. Anything? Nothing?

What sort of signal are you feeding them? Let's look (or listen) to the source and how its audio gets to the speakers. Define the electronics, pathing and setup.

Maybe some history. Have you ever tried to blow them up in your enthusiasm for the new rig? If the tweeters are dead, that may have happened. Microphone use and feedback = dead tweeters.

Mackie SRM-450 tweeter distorts sound

I'd just order a new diaphragm and see if that's the problem before any other dismantling. If that's not the problem, I'd take it to a certified repair shop. The fact that it's still working but not producing certain frqs,tells me you won't be able to see the problem with the naked eye.

Subwoofer rattle

Try filling the inside of the enclosure with insulation [roof insulation will work ] or a small pillow just to see if its the box or the driver rattling if its the driver you might have to secure it to the enclosure with screws or something ,

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.
