SOURCE: 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.
Cheers
Martin

These are quite common, and are just separate connection for each speaker in the enclosure. Just bridge the connections red to red and black to black with cable (use something like 5amp house wiring cable) and then connect your cable from your amplifier to one of the "ports" See http://www.brilliancehifi.co.uk/how-to-bi-wire-speakers.htm As you can see you could "biwire" if you wanted go further and improve the sound quality

Please send me a diagram of how the wiring is to be set up on the back of the speakers


The red connector on the speaker should be connected to the Pos.(+) connection on the Receiver/Amp. The Black to the Neg. (-) connection. ( for the proper speaker) Front Left, Front Right,etc. All, or most paired wire has either a black stripe,different shape on one,or different colour wire(silver/copper) So if you hook up the Blk striped or silver to the Neg.(black terminal) on the speaker, do so at the other end (receiver ) If both speakers aren't hooked up the same, they will work, but there won't be as much Bass because the speakers will be out of phase.(when one speaker cone is moving out,the other will be moving inward.

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.

How do you connect the back cables so the sound will come out right


There are four posts - two black and two red. They should be connected together, as shown in the picture. If you are missing the brass straps, simply use wire to reconnect the posts, black-black and red-red.

Then it's a simple matter of connecting the red (+) amplifier output to one of the red terminals, and the black (-) amplifier terminal to the black terminal on the KEF.

The KEF terminals can be seperated if you wish to "biamp" or "biwire" these speakers. Each black/red pair is dedicated to either the bass or the treble. For higher fidelity, some listeners prefer to run seperate wires from a single amplifier channel to each individual speaker input.clmrt5000_5.jpg

Do LF and HF +/_ both be connected and if yes do they both go to speaker system A or separate to A and B on the amplifier.


From the factory, those are equipped with "jumpers", one for red-red and one for black-black. This allows for one speaker cable to power one speaker.

The jumpers can be removed, allowing for "bi-wiring", where you run two leads from a single amp channel to both inputs on each speaker. There's also "bi-amping", using a treble amp and a bass amp dedicated to each input.

If the jumpers are missing, you can use a short piece of stripped speaker wire to reconnect the upper and lower binding posts, just be sure to match colors.clmrt5000_0.jpg

Can you please tell me how to connect my kef psw


If your amp has a "sub out" jack, that's the best way to hook up this sub. You'll just need a single RCA (also called "phono") cable. Connect it to the Left input on the sub, which should also be marked as "mono"

If your amp just has speaker-level outputs, then connect the left and right main speakers from your amp to the sub's high-level inputs, and then run wires from the sub's high-level outputs to your speakers.

If you're running a surround-sound setup, use the front-left and front-right speakers for this hookup.


If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me!
If not, post back with the "Add comment" and I'll do my best to answer any questions you've got.

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.
