    Thank you. The tech support person I spoke with was not familiar with Soliloquy drivers, and thus didn't know a direct replacement. His plan was just to find a speaker that fit the hole diameter, and replace all four drivers. I would love to find a drop in replacement. Any ideas?

    I do lots of electronic repair and if MCM can't supply the direct or sub parts then i would take their suggestion on this, they are the best and most knowledgeable parts supplier i have found in the last 20 years,. their suggestion is the quickest way to get the system up and working again, it is very doubtful u will find the parts that are a direct replacement, this is 100% true on electronics from China, u just can't get parts PERIOD.

I have a pair of custom made bookshelf size speakers that I love. They are older speakers that use french made Focal 7" dual voice coil drivers. One mid-bass 7" driver and one tweeter per...


Hi,
Well, fortunately it was the woofer that blew out. The reason I say that is because woofer material should have little to do with accurate reproduction in that frequency range. Since I don't know the model number of the speaker that was discontinued, I can suggest to you what can be done to get a satisfactory result.
1st If you have the model number on the Bass Driver AND Focal has the specifications. Go ahead and match the characteristics using THEIR data. The most important characteristics, besides the size of the driver would be the efficiency of the driver in terms of dB out. And the resonance frequency.
If these two are matched up closely, you should be good to go.
Focal is known to make good drivers, however, if you have to go to another manufacturer and you match the specs as above, then you should still do well.
If you get a newer Driver from focal, some of the characteristics may have been improved upon over the older driver. Such as transient response. If that were improved upon, It wouldn't sound really different, but it would seem tighter in the bass range.
One other thing I suggest. If you do as I suggest above and are pleased with the result, Go ahead and replace the woofer in the other speaker.
One additional point worth mentioning. Many of the foam surround speakers used in the old days in audio have failed because the foam has literally rotted away, as may be the case with your woofer. I know, as I have re-foamed enough of them. If you find a satisfactory woofer with a butyl rubber surround, it will never rot.
That would be the best replacement, as it would be permanent (if you don't badly overdrive it)
I've been an audiophile for most of my life, and I love music. I REALLY feel for you. I think that you will come out this just fine.
I hope this helps you,
Best,
Mark

The mid/bass is blown on my Sapphire SB bookshelfs and I cannot find replacement drivers. They are 5 inch 4 ohm but no manufacturer data. Any suggestions


http://www.parts-express.com/resources/woofer-selection-guide.cfm

Sort the guide by woofer size. Measure and match the hole opening, approximate volume of the speaker box and the -3db cutoff specified by Sapphire to something in the guide. Look for 4-ohm models, of course. Also, if you know the sensitivity rating (87db or similar), shoot for the same rating.

In order of importance -

DB match - get it wrong and the speaker will sound dark or bright.
Impedance match - get it wrong and the crossover frequency will not be correct.
Volume / F3 match - Will affect bass response.

As Sapphire is long gone, aftermarket replacements are your best bet. You might be suprised at how good a shot in the dark will sound. PE has a good return policy if you take care not to mess up the drivers during tryouts.

Am really not sure what you are lookign forward for. It the speaker is not working on your PC then installing the drivers would resolve your problem. Visit the following link and download the sound drivers again on your system. This would resolve your issue http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-AC-97-Audio-Driver-XP-W2K-W98-WDM-driver-VER-5-10-0-5554-zip/3000-2110_4-210198.html

I bought replacement drivers for Mission 780 speakers...how do I replace them...no visible screws...does the cover plate come off?


Screws are hidden under the plastic plugs where the covers slot in. remove cover, then maybe use a pencil and fingers to prize out the rubber "holes". Once all four removed, unscrew the four screws visible. Carefully lift off baffle, note that tweeter will be attached to the baffle. You then have easy access to the driver, again another four screws holding that in. You may find erosion on the terminals.

How do i reset the tpms on a 08 implala SS after a tire rotation,without a owners manual


You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.
The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
  3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's lock and unlock buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
  4. Start with the driver side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.
  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

How to reset the tire pressure on a 08' chevy tahoe?


TPMS Sensor Matching Procedure

Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: driver side front tire, passenger side front tire, passenger side rear tire, and driver side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic tool. See your dealer/retailer for service.

The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. If increasing the tire's air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire's sidewall.

To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.

You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
  3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
  4. Start with the driver side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.
  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Midrange faulty


I've had the same problem/s. A manufacturing fault with the original midrange drivers of all of my Mission 780's and 782 speakers. If you contact Mission through their website they will supply an updated style driver for about £45, I would recommend buying 2 because the other one will fail eventually, if like me you use them every day. All four failed within two years of each other.
