Question about Tannoy Reveal 6D Speaker

My Tannoy 6d monitor doesn't produce any sound

My Tannoy 6d speakers are a few years old and seem to work off and on. Sometimes when I play with the switches on the back of the monitor the sound will cut back in.
So that's all I did for a while, but now, one of the monitors will not work at all. The outputs of my audio source work, the cable is fine, so I'm guessing it has to do with switches in back. What should I do? Can someone walk me through fixing this?

Thanks

Hiya, i assume for now that you mean the 16dip switch. If i remember correctly it is solder directly to board (could be wrong). If you are comfortable with doing this, it will need to be opened and resoldered probably for dry joints. If not then suggest hunting out a friend with some solder experience. A word of caution though, shorting out solder tracks etc could result in damage so only do it if you are comfortable. If the dry joints are really bad (sound like they are) you should be able to see them clearly and resolder (look for not so bright and shiny solder that looks cracked. Magnifier helps)

Hope that helps

Hmm, what killed the tweeters? Over-exuberant operation? What's going on with your amp? Is it being pushed into stress or distortion? THAT will kill a speaker faster than clean high power.

My Tannoy Reveal 5A Powered Monitors are producing a low hum. This is the case when in on or in standby mode, and is the case whether plugged in to an audio cable or not. Could you please assist with some...


Hi,low hum from monitor speakers are usually when there is not shield connected to the cables your using for connections. Also it might be from the power light,if there is no earth or ground connected before connecting the power source in that room.

So you will need to check the cabling properly and check how the (sleeve, tip and ring) are connected and also check the power outlet,if the (red,black and yellow or white) are connected properly.

after checking those if they are OK,that means the fault will be from the speaker itself.\

Just do a proper troubleshooting.

Thanks for using fixya.....

Tannoy reveal speakers have lost treble


What you need to do is connect a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker(s) terminals for a split second. Put your ear to the tweeter at the same time (you might someone to help you do this). If the tweeter "pops" it works, if not you might have blown them. The best way would (to be certain) is to remove the tweeter from the crossover inside the unit.
Tweeters are the first thing to go when the speaker has been connected to an amp that is wrong for them or they have been run at high volume.

One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.

The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).

Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.

Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.

Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.
