Question about Yamaha NS-A327 Speaker

1 Answer

Speaker act more like tweeter only, not mid range + tweeter

These speakers (Yamah NS-A327) were sold to me as being stereo speakers covering mid range and tweeter function and should be used in conjunction with a subwoofer. They act more like tweeters only and, when checking the resistance of the voice coil it looks like there is a capacitor in series with the voice coil. Can anyone tell me what these speakers are really supposed to be - or provide the Yamaha specifications for them?

Hi,i hear alot about bi wireing could someone explain what it actually is used for and what's it meant to do could I'm thinking bout trying it on my speakers?

It's a big job, but the results are great. Bi amp-ing is where the tweeters and mid range speakers are separated and connected to separate amplifiers. You'll need to have the correct gear before messing inside your speakers. You'll need to have another amplifier. Not knowing what amp you have now, getting a stereo signal into the second amp may be a problem since you'll need a line level signal into the second amp. An external crossover is best. Technically, you could use the ones in the speakers, since you'll be removing them anyway. Now for the speaker mods: On the panel where the posts for the speaker wires are you'll need to install another set of binding posts. We're assuming you have separate subs. Open the speakers and remove the cross over. The wires from the original posts should now connect to the mid range speaker. Add wires from the second set of posts and wire it to the tweeters. Now connect the output of the amp to the removed cross over and wire the mid range out on the cross over to the posts that connect to the mid range speaker. Do the same for the tweeters.If you have three way speakers, you'll have to run a 3rd set of wires from the crossover to the woofers in the cabinet using another set of binding posts. Controlling the volume on the second amp will be difficult since you'll have to adjust it manually. Remote control volume level will be lost on the second amp.

Choosing Bookshelf Speakers

If you are shopping for a quality pair of stereo speakers for music listening not only should you trust your ears but have a look at the individual components that makeup the speaker. The cabinet of the speaker should always be solid, knock on it with your knuckles and see how it resonates the sound. Preferable it will sound dead and solid; we want the drivers moving not the cabinet!

The tweeter: The tweeter is responsible for the upper range and should be made from a rigid yet light material that does not deform when moving quickly, aluminum, titanium and ceramic are excellent. Paper, silk, cloth and plastic are not good for replicating notes in this range.

The woofer, much like the tweeter the woofer must be made from a rigid light material. Yet the woofer reacts differently since it produces a lower frequency range. Paper aka pulp fiber and other fiber composites work very well, as does aluminum and to a lesser extent plastic.

What is the wattage breakdown for each speaker on my pair of Pioneer CS-N575 3 way speaker towers (I know the total max power combined output is 150 Watts)?

It's the woofer that will use almost all from this 150 W so if you replace woofer take one of 8 ohm which can handle 150 W and you done

The sub on the left speaker don t play and the light went off but the mid and tweeter have sound coming out

The amplifier that drives the built in subwoofer has stopped working. The first thing to do is check that the power cord is plugged in to a live power outlet. Next, replace the fuse which you'll find on the large black metal plate on the back of the speaker. Use only the size and type fuse specified. If that does not work contact Definitive customer service at (800) 228-7148.

Only bass driver working on the pair. tweeter and mid range cones not working.

check the tweeter and mid range. its coil may become faulty.
for checking the speakers carefully remove the speakers one by one, remove its connections.
and check the speakers with a AAA cell. is it producing cracking sound. if not the speakers coils are burned.

The tweeter and upper mid-range speaker quit working in one of my JBL s412p speakers. All wires are connected. Would this be a cross-over assembly problem? If so, where can I purchase a replacement?

Remove the speaker wire from your amplifier. Using a 1.5v battery place the wire on both ends of the battery. Observe if you can hear a cracking sound on the tweeter and the mid-range. If there is no sound., your speaker is busted and needs to be rewind or replaced.

The tweeters in my yamaha NS-515F have blown. Any ideas where i can purchase suitable replacements? is a popular source for loudspeaker components.

Also, are you sure the tweeter's blown, and not a crossover component? carries many electronic components that could be used in crossovers.

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.
