Not sure where you're located but I have a pair in Rhode Island for sale. They are immaculate with only about 10 hours use on them. Get back to me if this is of any interest. Dantemcm@aol.com

Connecting new woofers and tweeter, which color wire is positive and negative


Normally, the red wire will be right side sound and black/white will be left side. However, if you are hooking up power, red is positive and black will be negative.

I have a pair of jamo R909 speakers that need crossover / board replacement--- any thoughts or suggested repair options? The company has been horrific. Love the speakers, but the company doesn't s


Hi Katrina,
Yes parts are available for your R909 speakers.
firstly I am surprised that you have managed to blow both tweeters and crossovers.....there must of been some serious distortion/amplifier clipping involved there???
So a couple of things.
Can you actually see damage to the crossover boards? If so what components have been damaged? i.e board loactions and parts.
The crossover is available but they are not cheap. $1560 each (AUS)
So it would be preferable and much cheaper to repair them at board level.
Tweeters are also available.. $745.00 each (AUS)

Quite new speakers 9.1 but the sound is very dull - sounds like tweeters are not working can these be repaired


You didn't answer if they ever worked right.

One doesn't usually judge tweeter function visually. They don't actually move much.

Take a cylindrical tube (like from a paper towel) and place it over the tweeter to isolate it from the room sound and the woofer, then place your ear at the other end. Anything? Nothing?

What sort of signal are you feeding them? Let's look (or listen) to the source and how its audio gets to the speakers. Define the electronics, pathing and setup.

Maybe some history. Have you ever tried to blow them up in your enthusiasm for the new rig? If the tweeters are dead, that may have happened. Microphone use and feedback = dead tweeters.

I have 1 set of wharfedale speakers valdus 400 .power handling (programme) 150W .normal impedance 4-8ohms.1 of the tweeter is not working .please advise how to repair asap ,thanks


you should first try if the driver is really gone or not, maybe it's just a wiring problem, also there can be something wrong with the cross-over network. Check the tweeter with a multimeter, if you don't see something between 2-16 ohms, you need a new one (or two, you probably won't be able to find the original part, so you'll have to change both left and right channel drivers) but if you see the desired impedance on the meter, check the internal wiring, crossover solder joints, capacitors, etc. I hope this helps.

Hello georgesverme,

I'd recommend starting with the local importer of Wharfdale products to see if they have exact replacement tweeters for sale. Contact:
Bob Springston, Sound Import, LLC
Phone: (508) 422-9788
Email: sales@soundimport.com

If you are unable to get tweeters from them, see if they will recommend a replacement or at the very least, provide you with the specifications, including the impedance, crossover point,frequency response, and power handling capability. If they won't or can't provide the information, then you are on you own. You'll want a relatively high-quality product, most likely 8ohm (but could be 16), crossover between 5-8KHz, frequency response from crossover to infinity (or at least beyond the range of human hearing).

Then try www.partsexpress.com. They have a large selections of speaker building products and carry small tweeters like yours in several brands, price ranges, and quality levels. Vifa is excellent. Tang Band is good. Goldwood is acceptable for entry-level speakers.

Hope this helps.

Yes, you can easily check it by removing it and swapping it with your other one. If the one from the second cabinet works, then the speaker itself has died. If not, either the wiring is the problem, or the crossover in the cabinet. If you take the first speaker that wasn't working, and put it in the second cabinet and it works, then likely it's your crossover. Please rate my answer, thanks.

The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.
See http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-speakers/4549-wharfedale-modus-one-six-crossover-pics.html
for pictures.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.

This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.

good luck Danny Mol

Tweeters only works when touched!


This is not a solution, but I have the same problem. Obviously, the problem is with the tweeter not the crossover. I can't find a replacement tweeter so i am about to take it to my local stereo repair store and see if they can fix it. If you find a replacement tweeter, let me know.
