I bought one pair of used Gem Sound speakers, each equiped with one 15" whoofer and 3 piezo Tweeter. The finish is gray carpet. I can't find any model number on them.

Hi,

Would you pls try here and see if any of the Gem Sound speakers shown resembles that of what you have. Should you be able to pin point the model, then the page would also be able to give you an idea as to the power handling capacity.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Yes, but you need to replace the entire speaker. The 1505 and 1508 use a different magnet though they look similar..

42.1i passenger side rear has power but sound is very quiet and tinny. all 3 other speakers work fine.


It sounds like the woofer part of the speaker is bad, while the tweeter is still good. You are going to have to replace the speaker. Speakers are generally sold in pairs, so it would be best to replace both rear speakers at the same time.

The tweeters are not working


The crossover caps may have failed, or the tweeters themselves burned out. Using a small 1.5 volt cell touched across the tweeter leads should produce a sound. If not- they are burned out.

How to remove the magnet from the tweeter horn in the PR15 Speakers so I can get to the 3 screws


Removing a magnet from a tweeter is oftten fatal to the voice coil or element in piezo drivers. If you can see the screws, often a right-angle driver may be able to remove them.

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.

I need replacement crossover because they got burn


The crossover in these is very simple and if it is burned, likely your speakers, maybe both, the woofer and tweeter have been damaged and need to be replaced. Test the speakers before changing the crossover. You MAY NOT notice the damage until you start driving the speakers again. The voice coil of the woofer is a common thing to fry, and while it may not open up, often it becomes unbonded to the coil form and rubs the magnet pole pieces. The tweeter/horn often wipes out the diaphram or blows the element open. Some of these are piezo horns and they can sometimes survive. These are rated at 100 Watts and if your amp can deliver over 50 watts you have to be careful to not put too much power into these. I have several of the Kustom 10 inch ones and several of the 15 inch ones... Also I have two 15 double stacks and they all seem to use the same crossover. Believe me, the crossover is far from what I would call "special" like the advertisements say. As an electrical engineer I was very disappointed. Anyway, test your speakers as they may be the worst of the problem.

Need to find out which is the proper speaker wires for hook up yellow to tweeter or sub? And striped one is positive or negative?


You can probably trace which colors go to the smaller of the amps... Yellow is often used for tweeter but there really is no standard. Striped wire is probably the minus lead. If a pair is heavier, that would be the pair for the woofer... and red is often positive for woofer and black the minus. Searching the Mackie schematics doesn't really show colors. You could call their service dept.

Suddenly, my outdoor speakers sound kind of "muffled"


If these speakers are two or three way speakers, it is possible that the tweeter(s) are blown in them.
Try and remove cover to check.
If the sound is not distorting, but just flat and muddy its the tweeters.
Put the other ones on this channel, to make sure it is not the amp.

Inverted(puhed in)tweeter


Hi George,

You may be able to pull them out using tape. That is sellotape then gently pull .They should pop out like
a dented car panel. My understanding is these domes really protect moving coil from dust so should not affect sound. Worst case swop the tweeter.
Ive just bought a pair of revolution 3 with same "fault" so I will let you know how I get on .I am in Electronics trade as profession. It may be possible to gently remove dome using a surgical blade then popping out and gluing on with PVA / Latex glue coloured with black ink if you dont like white appearance.

It is sometimes possible to pull out using fine sewing needle push in then gently pull out as if removing a spell from your finger.

Hope this helps
