Hi oddone

You may have a problem with either blown tweeters, or a faulty cross over, or both. If you have a multimeter, you can remove the tweeter, and check it DC resistance. They normally have their impedance marked on the back of the magnet. If not, you can assume they should measure 8 ohms. If they measure open circuit (high resistance), then they have failed.
A good speaker repair guy can often fix an open circuit tweeter as they often break where the very fine wires attach from the voice coil to the terminal. you can take a turn of the voice coil and reterminate to solve this problem. If the voice coils are burnt, they will need to be replaced.
If the tweeter meters ok, then you may have a problem with the crossover capacitors going dry. Generally they are 2.2uf to 6.8uf in value, the smallest cap in the crossover. If the plastic coating on them is split, or they look a different colour to the rest of the caps, replace them, if they sound "hollow" replace em, if you are not sure, replace em. other than that there is not alot more to look for with a speaker box tweeter Good luck and happy listening.

If you have any dramas, get back to me here and we can talk more about it.

regards
Graeme

I have just bought a technics sc-dv290 hi-fi off of my cousin and found out the mid range and the tweeters have blown does anyone know where i could get replacent tweeters and mid-range speakers for it if...


As you probably know, these are the individual model numbers:

SC-DV290 the base unit
SB-DV290 speaker set

Front SB-DV290
Center SB-PC95
Surround SB-PS95

I'd scour Google or eBay for any or all of those models. Orphan speakers appear periodically.

Just the tweeter is playing and not the mid


It's a midrange component speaker. Possibly your midrange speaker is blown. Check your wiring.

You hear the tweeters i am assuming because the vehicle has tweeter component speakers that are separate from the midrange and low components.

Testing this item


Depends on the mid-woofers you're using. I'd use the cross-over with the mids too first. Exparimenting won't hurt, just make sure the tweeters are run through the cross-overs or you'll smoke them quick.

Can't find specs/maker of klh 900b tweeter


KLH 900B tweeter specifications: 6 ohm, 40 watts. By the way, KLH's QC for speakers could be improved. One of my 900B tweeters quit because the spacing for the voice coil was way off reasonable tolerance and the body of the speaker coil base pillar (ie: magnitized part) was off-center - and cauesd the coil to ware and short. I contacted KLH but they did not respond.

Tweeters & Midrange Speakers


If you have a Ohm Meter, check the resistance to the speakers. If it is very high, the speakers are burned, (or the crossover is (just capacitors, and resisters...cheap)). If it is close to 4 ohms check the wiring and connectors..to and at the speakers, most likly the receiver/amp is not blown.

Installation Help


This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.
