When you replaced the tweeter you should also check if there is any damage to the crross over network. It is possible that the capacitor , inductive circuit could have opened up. Remove and check. Check seperately with a good multimeter or use a 1.5 volt AA cell for testing the speakers. You can connect the speaker cabinet line to the battery and ccheck for voltage at the tweeter branch. Othere check the nettwrok and resolder or reconnect or replace. Hope this helps. Good day

It's probably blown tweeters. But if you want to spend the money on a hipshot guess, try to find the the crossovers somewhere first; then find the readily available tweeters if/when that doesn't work out. Google "alesis monitor one MK2 tweeter".

You could test the tweeters by just removing one non-functional tweeter and wiring it directly to the speaker leads and with REALLY LOW volume containing NO BASS see if it makes any sound, which would prove it does/does not work.

Going forward, if the speakers sound stressed at high volume - THEY ARE. Too much power or too much distortion (overdriven amplifier) will kill speakers.

The top part of the mackie speaker isnt working. all that is working is the big bottom part, and the sound sounds like the bass is the only thing coming out.


The typical cause of this is a blown tweeter or the tweeter has broken off of the horn and fallen inside the cabinet. Remove the screws from the horn and carefully remove the assembly. Try the speaker at low volumes to see if you hear any sound at all. Next, remove one of the wires and using a 9Volt battery quickly touch the 2 leads on the tweeter. If you don't hear a click, the tweeter needs to be replaced. Contact Mackie service for a replacement.

If you hear a click, then the problem is in the crossover or amp and further investigation willbe required.

3000 watt. Really? You possibly have a blown tweeter. If your "3000 watt" amplifier really pushed 3000 watts to them or some much lower number with a lot of distortion (square waves) you will kill speakers (especially tweeters). Or maybe it's just missing the jumper between the two inputs on the back or a bad speaker cable. Do some more diagnosis. Swap things around. Use LOW volume to test.

Hi, I have a problem with both of my Mackie MR8s. They both play really quiet, like ridiculously quiet with no low end at all. They don't make that "clicking" sound when you turn them on either....


The woofers were likely the problem in the first place. DO an ohmmeter check on them.

Note that the ohmmeter often doesn't work for testing piezo tweeters, but does work for the woofers with voice coils.
