Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I have a problem with no sound coming from the TWEETER of one of my Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 speaker. The overall sound is very muffled whereas the other speaker is very bright. I have swapped over left and right speakers and the problems remains with the faulty speaker. I have also reversed the connections at the back of the speaker. Neither attempt has solved the problem. Please help. Stephen.

Check the speaker/s first. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

SOURCE: Suddenly, my outdoor speakers sound kind of "muffled"

If these speakers are two or three way speakers, it is possible that the tweeter(s) are blown in them.
Try and remove cover to check.
If the sound is not distorting, but just flat and muddy its the tweeters.
Put the other ones on this channel, to make sure it is not the amp.

A loose or intermittent cable contact on the OUTSIDE would affect ALL speaker output, not just the high frequencies, and it would probably produce speaker-threatening crackles.

That loose tweeter connection the other guys found isn't fixed. Go back and make them fix it right.

What are your present speaker connection ends if NOT bare wire?

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)

Quite new speakers 9.1 but the sound is very dull - sounds like tweeters are not working can these be repaired


You didn't answer if they ever worked right.

One doesn't usually judge tweeter function visually. They don't actually move much.

Take a cylindrical tube (like from a paper towel) and place it over the tweeter to isolate it from the room sound and the woofer, then place your ear at the other end. Anything? Nothing?

What sort of signal are you feeding them? Let's look (or listen) to the source and how its audio gets to the speakers. Define the electronics, pathing and setup.

Maybe some history. Have you ever tried to blow them up in your enthusiasm for the new rig? If the tweeters are dead, that may have happened. Microphone use and feedback = dead tweeters.

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Muffled sounds from speakers suddenly on our boat


Hi airnurse

If you are using a cassette deck for a source of music, then it will have dirty heads. This can be cured by using a head cleaner cassette. Muffled sound from the loudspeakers usually points to a faulty high frequency driver(tweeter). Is the sound muffled on radio or other sources as well. If so, then you have faulty tweeter(s) to any speakers that are muffled.

Of course in saying that, you should check that someone has not just turned the treble control all the way down, or the bass control alll the way up :) Pays to check.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

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
