SOURCE: Dented front speaker grills.

Take a good size paper clip, make it into an L shape and stick it in one of the holes at the dent, be careful not to hit the speaker. Turn the lower end of the L so it is flat, up against the grill and put gently to straighten out the grill. the other solution is to take the whole speaker apart and push from the inside.

SOURCE: How do I remove the cloth grill cover from the front of speaker?

Some speaker manufacturers design their boxes with non-removable front grills. Be thankful that you can remove the back because I've seen these sealed as well. Once inside, the speakers should be mounted from the inside (mounting screws on inside) compared to front mounted. IF they are not then either you're not using the proper method to remove the grill OR it's glued in place and will require breaking the glue bond to release the grill. One note to remember...non-removable grills can mean the manufacturer has something to hide.

# 1991 peavey classic chours 2x12 scorpion speakers one speaker makes a buzz noise only on a high e note only sometimes -if i want to replace the speaker do the front grill come off to remove spekaer

Normally on older Peavey amps the grill is on a frame attached to the face held on with velcro. I suspect you have something vibrating against the speaker if it's only one frequency. Once the grill is off it may be apparent.
Also on old Scorpions and Black Widows Peavy has a piece of foam in the hole in the magnet to keep junk from getting in the speaker. Over time it crumbles and opens that hole, but even worse can get it the gap and freeze the voice coil. I always suggest cleaning it out while the speaker is out of the cab.

Yes, but you need to replace the entire speaker. The 1505 and 1508 use a different magnet though they look similar..

How to remove the magnet from the tweeter horn in the PR15 Speakers so I can get to the 3 screws

Removing a magnet from a tweeter is oftten fatal to the voice coil or element in piezo drivers. If you can see the screws, often a right-angle driver may be able to remove them.

How do I go about disassembling my peavey 6150+112 combo guitar amp to the point where I can replace the 12" driiver for a better one.

Most Peavey speakers you will have to just remove the grille in front of the speaker. These usually are held by Velcro like fasteners that you must carefully pry the grille out. That will give you access too the screws holding the speaker rim. Be aware that there are different sizes of speaker rims and mountings for the "same" listed size speaker. Also use the same impedance speaker as the original one or you MAY find you have less power OR blow your amp out.

The amplifier keeps burning the tweeters in the speakers after replacement

Please check the wattage of the replaced speakers, now check the cross over in the speakers, if the capacitors are short the voltage might flow into the tweeter coils to burnt them out. Also you can try and reduce the high frequency and also see if the tweeters heat up . If so use high wattage super cooled tweeters.
Check finally for fault in the amplifier output- high voltage/current.

1983 mercedes300SD, how do I remove the front speakers?

I fit my MB Quart DKG110s in the front with no modification. You may not find this an ideal solution though because:

1)The grill actually touches the shield for the tweeter--it doesn't clear by about 1mm or so. However, I was able to put the grill back on and screw it in place. It bulges ever so slightly in the middle and you can't notice it. If you wanted to fix it, all you'd have to do is take a dremel tool and thin the middle of the grill in the center where the tweeter is. I will do this but haven't gotten around to it yet. There is no effect on the sound because the grill is only touching the shield and not the speaker itself.

2)I didn't screw the speaker in either. I think you'd have to cut off one or two of the corners of the speaker mount to get the holes to line up. I don't remember but since the situation above is true anyway, the grill holds the speaker in place and the screws won't be necessary until I dremel out the grill.

Crutchfield has all the aspects on most cars and speaker specs I suggest visiting there or the 12 volt . com to get a more precise answer.

Hope this at least helps

Horns don't work on sp2 speakers

I've got Peavey SP2's and SP4XT's and they have one common problem. The 22XT Driver needs replacing from time to time. It could be a power spike, overdriving from amp, over heating or dirt/water in horn. The driver is very easy to replace and costs about $40.00. Remove the horn, carefully lift the horn and disconnect black and red wires. Remember red is always +. Remove driver from horn with socket wrench or socket screwdriver, clean the circular gap on horn with masking tape to remove dirt, hand tighten driver screws, connect red and black wires, carefully set horn back in SP2 enclosure and slowly bring up the power. Also be sure to be very careful when setting the new driver/ coil in the horn. You don't want to damage the coils on the new driver at all!

Replacement tweeters for Eyris 1

If any new readers are seeking the same advice, then as at Feb 2016, replacements are available from Real Electronics in the UK, 08452 307 747 - this info from the service line at Tannoy. £63.21 + VAT + delivery. Part no 7900 0621

Much of the advice above is not applicable to the Eyris, folks seem to be posting generic solutions.

Unbolt the hex bolts at the rear of the tweeter assembly. With a screwdriver or similar, push the threaded rods forward to move the front portion of the tweeter housing free from the cabinet. The amount of flexibility in the cables may vary, and some users may have to remove the terminal block (hex bolts again) on the rear, and remove the acoustic wadding to gain flex in the cables.

There are three terminals on the tweeter, with push-fit spade connections. Green for Earth, red/black for signal. Disconnect these, pull tweeter forward, remove threaded rods.

Reassembly is the reversal of removal. Ensure all cables go in same places, etc. etc.
