I recently bought a used pair of RS2's only to find that one of the tweets is blown. I have spent the last 60 min looking for a replacement but with no luck. Does anybody know of a good OEM parts supplier (other than Infinity of course!) that would have these or a near direct replacement??

Not sure why you would want to remove the tweeters, but if you did, then the overall impedance of the speakers would be altered. It may be higher or lower depending on the crossover network and wiring configuration. If you still have your heart set on removing the tweeters, the simplest method would be to replace the removed speaker with a resistor of the same ohms value and of an adequate power rating. This will introduce a slight bit of distortion but it will safe guard your amplifier. Cheers
Either one of the drivers (woofer, midrange, tweeter) has a short in it, or there's short in the crossover network. The drivers all need to be taken out and the DCR checked; they should be between 3.5 to 4 ohms.. if those all check OK there is a shorted part in the crossover network.
If these speakers are two or three way speakers, it is possible that the tweeter(s) are blown in them.
Try and remove cover to check.
If the sound is not distorting, but just flat and muddy its the tweeters.
Put the other ones on this channel, to make sure it is not the amp.
Got a pair of these at Damark for $72.[plus shipping] Can't think of anything bad to say about them. A basic 2-way design with a titanium tweeter and a 8" mid-woofer. Bass reflex with a rear firing port. 150 watt power handling. These little guys have guts PLUS nice tonal balance. Didn't find the tweets to be harsh as some say. Not as smooth as the EMIT-R by Infinity [my fave tweets] but still makes the high end shimmer. Sure there are better speakers in this design, but for those of us with limited resources, these were a real find. Get 'em while you can. 4 stars for performance plus 1 more for value.
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.
hi, have u first disconnected the tweeters and then checked, as if its on a cross over, the tweeter is in series with a capacitor,if u have a ohms meter or a continuety tester check the tweeter coil if its open,secondly you can have the coil replaced, check if u can get one before buying a new,let me know
