Hi bertsteenrt

Can you check the resistance of the HF driver(tweeter). If it is open it will need a new diaphragm. Most of these speakers use a lamp to act as protection for the HF driver. Sometimes these lamps fail. You will need to pull the horn out of the cabinet to check, and the rear connection panel off to get access to the crossover where the lamp is located. Get back to me here and I can talk you through fault finding the speaker.

regards
Graeme

Why did my receiver lose volume on the right channel


I will assume this right channel problem is present no-matter the chosen input....radio, CD, etc. "Changed speaker wires"...did you swap ONLY the wires from left channel to right or did you also swap speakers? Defective speaker woofers (wiring and/or crossover failures) leave only the tweeter to reproduce music in that speaker, which we perceive as both a huge volume and tonal reproduction difference compared to the "other" speaker. Keep up your "process of elimination" troubleshooting techniques as this will lead you to the problem.

I bought a pair of Mordaunt Short Qviano 1 speakers from Richer Sounds 18 months ago and now find that the tweeter in both units has failed. The amplifier I am using is rated at 70 watts which is within...


Specs refer to UNdistorted sound. Send square waves to any speaker and it will die eventually, perhaps even the amp.

You are more likely to blow up speakers with an under-powered amp pushed to hard than a monster amp running well within its capacity. Distortion percentages rise vertically once the amp's useful range is exceeded. Tweeters are usually the first casualties.

It's tweeter hunting time.

Tweeters blow pretty easily. Access the back of the tweeter and touch a weak battery across it's leads. It should click if the coil isn't fried open or shorted.

These loudspeakers are being powered by a Crown 801 amplifier and constantly blow tweeter diaphragms. Can you tell me why?


Here are some possible reasons:
The amplifier has more power that the tweeters can handle.
Momentary DC or clipping at the output.
Too much high boost settings (from equalizer etc).
These are the common causes the tweeters to blow out. If you need further help, clarify me the speakers / tweeters brand / model.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

After unit is on for about 15 minutes it clicks into a buzzing noise & when turned off pops. if i leave it off for about 45 minutes it works again for about 15 minutes, but if i turn it off & back...


It seems like some component(s) become over heated by the time. It could be caused by either some faulty component(I guess Capacitor or Transistor in which case they must be replaced) or bad heat transfer(radiator, mounted on power transistors) that must be resoldered and/or screws/clips must be tightened.

Good luck

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

I have a kenwwod AX-7 home theatre systems. the right side top speaker (tweeter) on one side does not work. i'm thinking there is a fualt with the amplifier on the right side.


If the only problem is the tweeter, and the woofer is still working, you do not have a problem in the amplifier. The problem is the speaker. The tweeter is blown or you have a problem in the cross over network in the speaker.

You can always switch the speakers and connect them to the opposite channel. You can do this very easy at the back of the receiver where the speaker wires are at. Put the left speaker wires on the right speaker and the right speaker wires on the left speaker. If the same speaker still has no tweeter you know that the speaker is the problem.

The only way this could be a problem in the amplifier is if you have two different sets of inputs for each speaker, one being the low end for the woofer and the other being the high end for the mid range and tweeter. That would mean you have two sets of speaker wires going to each speaker. Each set of speaker wires would have a positive wire and a negative wire for a total of 4 wires going to each speaker. I don't remember this system being set up that way, but I could be wrong.

I hope this was helpful, you should be able to get the speaker fixed at an authorized Kenwood repair center in your area for a reasonable price. As a guide, my shop only charges $25 for the labor plus the cost of the tweeter to replace a tweeter. Any other shop should be similar. Kenwood does sell replacement drivers for almost all of their speakers.
