Question about Wharfedale Audio Players & Recorders
I have a nice set of Wharfedale Modus Supercubes (from the late 90's I believe). They are the ones that have the tweeter mounted separately on top of the cube. We remodeled and I would now be better off if I could somehow wall mount them. There are no keyholes or threaded slots for a universal bracket to work with.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.
This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.
good luck Danny Mol

I had the same problem.
Step one: pop of the grille with a screwdriver or knife inserted from the bottom so that any marks will be hidden when you get the two halves back together.
Step two: If the speaker is held in by screws, you are lucky. Just unscrew the speaker and remove it. If the speaker isn't held into the case by screws, it is a newer model that is glued to the back cover / box. You can separate the glue with a bread knife or thin screwdriver (I used a paint scraper and thin screwdriver). Be careful to work around all four sides. Also, there is a small (about 1/4" long) plastic bump in the center of each of the four sides that clips into a matching groove in the speaker, so you will have to spring apart at least two adjacent sides at the same time to release the speaker from the cover easily.
Step 3: Once you have the speaker out, remove the acoustic sponge, and sit the bottom half on a solid table. Make sure the rubber gasket between the speakers is seated properly and note the position of the 3 notches in the hole of the bottom speaker cover. Place the top speaker cover in place and insert the white plastic 3 pronged clip though the the hole so that the prongs match the notches. Press down hard with two thumbs and it should snap into place.
Step 4: Replace the sponge and push the top speaker back into the cover. Replace the screws if you had them. Otherwise you can glue it again but the clips are quite solid if not damaged by the removal so you can save some effort the next time it happens by leaving it unglued, and just snapping the speaker into place.
Step 5: push the grille back on.

This is not a solution, but I have the same problem. Obviously, the problem is with the tweeter not the crossover. I can't find a replacement tweeter so i am about to take it to my local stereo repair store and see if they can fix it. If you find a replacement tweeter, let me know.
