Yes, you can easily check it by removing it and swapping it with your other one. If the one from the second cabinet works, then the speaker itself has died. If not, either the wiring is the problem, or the crossover in the cabinet. If you take the first speaker that wasn't working, and put it in the second cabinet and it works, then likely it's your crossover. Please rate my answer, thanks.

Connecting new woofers and tweeter, which color wire is positive and negative


Normally, the red wire will be right side sound and black/white will be left side. However, if you are hooking up power, red is positive and black will be negative.

I've just been given a Wharfedale S-990 Amplifier, Tuner CD etc tower - but without any speakers. Output is 2x50W - but the impedence isn't specified. I'm just looking for advice on what...


Anything in the neighborhood of 8-ohms will usually fly safely with standard audio amplifiers. At only 50w x 2 you want efficient speakers. Watch the volume as this amp may clip if driven too hard. THAT will kill any speaker.

This owner had Valdus 200's and was happy. But just about any quality speaker in the 100w range should work out.

Can't get wharfedale melton 2 tweeter to work. Looked inside cabinet and need advice on internal wiring please. These are very old but one works perfectly and the 12'' bass driver on the problem speaker is...


The tweeter has burned out and cannot be salvaged. I also own a pair of (ex) Melton 2s. In the beginning Wharfedale were good at supplying spares (see www.wharfedale.co.uk for contact info and advice). A few years ago after my cat destroyed the 12 inch unit in one, i invested in new insides, including state of the art 12 inch woofers, 4 inch mid range and 1inch tweeters with a good 3 way crossover. The cabinet is great so consider asking a techie friend to do this for you. Please don't just cut out and connect to amp speaker wires! You will get terrible sound and risk ruining both amp and speakers! Best regards Karl (karl@simpson.nom.fr)

I have 1 set of wharfedale speakers valdus 400 .power handling (programme) 150W .normal impedance 4-8ohms.1 of the tweeter is not working .please advise how to repair asap ,thanks


you should first try if the driver is really gone or not, maybe it's just a wiring problem, also there can be something wrong with the cross-over network. Check the tweeter with a multimeter, if you don't see something between 2-16 ohms, you need a new one (or two, you probably won't be able to find the original part, so you'll have to change both left and right channel drivers) but if you see the desired impedance on the meter, check the internal wiring, crossover solder joints, capacitors, etc. I hope this helps.

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.
See http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-speakers/4549-wharfedale-modus-one-six-crossover-pics.html
for pictures.
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
