Tweeters & Midrange Speakers

I have a pair of 3 way speakers. The tweeters and midrange speakers stopped working after playing at a reasonably high volume. The bass speakers still work in both speakers. The sound is now muffled because I only have sound coming through the bass speakers. Did something blow out in the receiver?

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.

Onkyo TX-SR602 only puts sound out through tweeters, not midrange drivers.


Check speakers ‎Crossover circuit instead of SR602 . The speakers ,midrange drivers, may be damaged. Connect a small speakers at least 4 ohms to see if any sound comes out.

What is the impedance of the midrange speaker and the tweeter speaker in the Pioneer cs r5100 ? I have the crossovers and the woofers I use for my front channels (L&R)


If you are running three 8 ohm speakers in parallel then the total impedance would be 2.667. If running two 8 ohm and one 6 ohm speaker in parallel you would have 2.4 ohms. This will burn out your amp pretty quick. And very possible won't play at all. Though I have never attempted to play a home amp down that low in ohms. Guessing you may have an older model Denon type amp.

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.

Midrange and tweeter driver not hit the the high range.


Are u sure u haven't messed up with the polarity of the speakers while rewiring the speakers? If all is ok and only u find that the speakers are not so vibrant as the other there cud be a possibility that the coil has shifted inside the magnet and is either scratching or not aligned. Also hav a look at the crossover

My speakers sound flat with no highs at all


I am trying to work out if you have damaged the speakers and amp too.
Have you tried a pair of headphones on the amp? If they sound ok then your amp is fine.
Assuming it is, then speakers have what's called crossover units in side each of them. This splits the sound into three parts. Bass, midrange, treble. The bass is handled by the woofer's, the midrange by a middle sized speaker or or it's combined with a tweeter, which of course handles the treble.
Connecting a 1.5 volt battery across any of the individual speakers will cause it to pop if working. If the speaker then is not getting sound then the crossover unit is to blame.
When you look at the crossover unit, it will have coils and capacitors (non polarised) on it. The bigger ones deal with the bass and the smaller ones treble. If you find a fault say on the crossover of the speaker, for example no treble comes out of it. Then start by replacing the capacitors. Use the same value as on the capacitor and remember they fit any way round.
