Yes Eltax will sell you a replacement part. THey also sell the woofer/driver as well. Changing either is simple. You will need a Torx screwdriver to unattatch the driver from the box. Then just pull it out, and attatch the connectors to the new tweeter. Make sure you get the wiring right for polarity. Ie look at the writing on the back of the tweeter and keep the wires going to the same connections on the new one. Screw it back in...and you are done. I have a pair of these as well, and have just done the same replacing both woofers that had been pushed in my my niece and her inquisitive hands !

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 a pair of Wharfdale laser 40 speakers that each need the woofer and tweeter cones replaced. How much will this cost, is it worth it?


to recone these speakers would not be cost effective. I suggest you buy replacement speakers. a good source of high quality (even higher than the ones in your unit) is www.martinsoundproducts.com they sell many different kinds and sizes of speakers. If you want to go an easier route you could buy replacement speakers from Best Buy or Radio Shack, but they would not be of the highest quality. one last place to buy speakers is from a high end music store that caters to professional musicians and maybe has a repair dept, (where you could order the speakers you need) good luck, the Waferdale speakers are great, too bad you blew them out.

My sub woofer stopped working, please tell me where it is located so i can check the speaker and also check if power is going to it thank you very much joe


The JBL premium sound system has a large woofer in the bottom of each door, a small mid-range speaker next to the woofer, & tweeters next to the front door windows in the corner, & two full-range speakers near the rear seats. The woofer (not sub-woofer) handles all the low end. You can test the woofer by turning the BASS to max and TREBLE to minimum (make sure balance and fader are centered) and put your ear next to each woofer.
The woofer is usually the 1st speaker to have problems after 10 years or so. The outer edge of the woofer starts to degrade. You will usually hear a rattling sound out of the woofer when this happens.
NOTE: If no sound at all out of the woofer (tweeters are OK), you might take your car into a car stereo shop. They can put a speaker on the wires connected to the speaker and make sure your problem is not the radio.
PROBLEM: You can still hear sound out of the woofers but it is distorted
SOLUTION 1: Go to a car audio shop and have them install new woofers. These may cost $30+ each but the dealer cost is over $200 for each woofer (crazy).
SOLUTION 2: More involved but very cost effective. If you or a friend is handy, you can go to www.speakerworks.com and order a new set of speaker outer rings (on the site they are called speaker SURROUND) that will replace the damaged outer rings on the woofers (replace on both woofers). They really work great and your speakers should last for many more years.
Hope this helps.

Tweeter has stopped working, speaker sounds like


Before you go buying parts you might not need why don't you swap components with the other speaker that matches it?

Cuoul i replace the tweeter with any 1 inch tweeter other than acoustic research?


Providing you match the power and ohm rating of the acoustic tweeter yes. You could of course have an higher rms/watts rating than the original, but not lower. The ohm though must be the same. The only thing that might happen is that it might sound different to the other speaker, as the tweeter sound quality could be better or worse than the acoustic. Of course you could buy two and replace the other speaker one too!

I have A RXC 216 crossover and want to run 2 RTC 19 tweeters with this crossover, is there going to be anything wrong in this set up?


Yes and no. First I'll start by saying that the crossover should not be effected and the crossover frequency (meassured in Hz.) will not change either. What you will be doing is either doubling, or reducing by half, the effective impedance of your tweeter. If you wire the tweeters in parallel the impedance will be cut in half (car audio speakers are typically 4ohm), the result will be a 2ohm load. Most car amplifiers are "stable" at 2ohm, but sound quality will suffer. The other option is to wire them in series, this will double your effective impedance meaning an 8ohm load. With a higher load the amp will not put out the same wattage ( the lower wattage will most likely be undetectable). Hope this helps!

Will not produce sound through the top end of my speakers,


While this may sound strange, it is not likely the receiver that is the probem, at least at this point. Remove the "tweeters" from the speakers and measure across the two leads. You should read continuity. If not, then the tweeters need to be replaced. I believe that you may have blown the tweeters.

Outta phase? if a tweeter is out will make sub distort?


A Tweeter being out of phase should not have any effect on the sub.

If one tweeter is out of phase with the other there will still be sound in the room as due to the high frequency the unequal time to your ear will mean you won't get perfect destructive interference and the signals won't cancel. Also the two tweeter signals convey much less information in common than a subwoofer or bass speaker.

I have a kenwwod AX-7 home theatre systems. the right side top speaker (tweeter) on one side does not work. i'm thinking there is a fualt with the amplifier on the right side.


If the only problem is the tweeter, and the woofer is still working, you do not have a problem in the amplifier. The problem is the speaker. The tweeter is blown or you have a problem in the cross over network in the speaker.

You can always switch the speakers and connect them to the opposite channel. You can do this very easy at the back of the receiver where the speaker wires are at. Put the left speaker wires on the right speaker and the right speaker wires on the left speaker. If the same speaker still has no tweeter you know that the speaker is the problem.

The only way this could be a problem in the amplifier is if you have two different sets of inputs for each speaker, one being the low end for the woofer and the other being the high end for the mid range and tweeter. That would mean you have two sets of speaker wires going to each speaker. Each set of speaker wires would have a positive wire and a negative wire for a total of 4 wires going to each speaker. I don't remember this system being set up that way, but I could be wrong.

I hope this was helpful, you should be able to get the speaker fixed at an authorized Kenwood repair center in your area for a reasonable price. As a guide, my shop only charges $25 for the labor plus the cost of the tweeter to replace a tweeter. Any other shop should be similar. Kenwood does sell replacement drivers for almost all of their speakers.
