Re: Kef Q Series iQ1 problem

You may have broken the cross over, which is fixable by an service agent, or you may have damaged the voice coil in the mid driver. you can check this by sofly pushing the main driver in, making sure that you done push the cone, if there is a lot of resistance then you have damaged the voice coil, and you will need to replace the driver.

Check the cabling. Check the connections. Check the audio source.
Check the extended warranty you added when you bought those $1500.00 speakers.

Morning I have a set of KEF Q 5 floor standing

I'd suspect a shorting voice coil in the woofer or a loose connection inside that vibrates and presents a wildly varying load.

Disconnect the bi-wiring jumpers and try driving each 'half' separately as a test for tripping the amp.

My JBL eon 15g2 speaker was working fine and then suddenly the lower woofer suddenly stopped. The higher tweeter still seems to work. All of the fuses are fine and all the wires seem to be properly...

the braided wires from the speaker connectors to the voice coil could be broken (from repetitive movement) or it could be the voice coil it self that could be cut open from a miss alignment of the cone (ware and tear), delicately push on the cone and feel if it rubs, a simple test is to check the IMPEDANCE of the speaker with a OHMMETER, if you have a reading (4,6,or 8 ohms) than the speaker is fine, check the rest of the wiring, if it reads OPEN than you need a new speaker...

Cant connect my q35 speaker, help please!! Theres 4 connections??

Hi, They should have a gold bar "jumper"between the two black/and the two red connectors. If not, it is missing,but the reason for that is you can use seperate amps for the woofer and the tweeter/mid.Called "Bi-amping."You can just use a extra wire to connect both inputs together. Black to black and red to red.

Midrange and tweeter driver not hit the the high range.

Are u sure u haven't messed up with the polarity of the speakers while rewiring the speakers? If all is ok and only u find that the speakers are not so vibrant as the other there cud be a possibility that the coil has shifted inside the magnet and is either scratching or not aligned. Also hav a look at the crossover

if the original KEF tweeter is no longer available there are other brand tweeters that should fit as a replacement option. just contact a repair center (us) and you can get options.

Blown kef q55.2 tweeter, is replacement possible?

The tweater on my Q55.2 blew as well. I went into a shop in NYC and they tried to charge me $225 for a new tweater, so I took it home and called up Kef. They sent me out a new tweater for $35 and instructions on how to solder it in.
It took all of 10 mins to replace and they are working fine. I've never soldered anything before and it was simple.

Replacement KEF Coda III TWEETER Type SP1087

Go here and find a nice substitute. Many to choose from and it may be better to purchase a pair of them rather than have mis-matched ones. They should be inexpensive enough for you, as low as $2 up to $480. You just need the size of the mounting hole to find a replacement though.
