    im having the same issue. some crackle in the speaker, then sound goes in and out. if i tape down or hold the sub with my finger, the sound stops, and the speaker stays on. im guessing the bass is shaking a connection loose, which i can solder myself, but i cant get access to it --and ive take all the screws out.

Remove the six hex screws from the plastic front speaker housing. It\'s the piece with the speaker\'s make and model imprinted.

Gently pry the cover off. The blue LED light can be easily freed by gently prying it loose from the back of the plastic housing. You\'ll notice the two wires connecting your tweeter. Don\'t pull too hard on the cover while the tweeter is still attached to prevent detaching the wires. Instead, take very short, stubby Phillips head screwdriver and remove the two screws holding the small plastic brace against the back of the tweeter. It\'s a tight fit. Don\'t pull too hard on the wires! Next, push the tweeter out from the front, touching only the extreme outer rim. Or, use needlenosed pliers to grip the heat sink on the back of the tweeter and gently pull from the back. The tweeter has a very powerful magnet. Find a small but robust rectangle made of ferrous metal. Large enough to span the front diameter of the tweeter. When the speaker magnet grabs the little metal plate, adjust the plate until the buzzing stops. This means of course that you have to turn the power to the speaker on.

Hey.. I just bought a Bx8 studiophille.. Unfortunately I got cheated.. One of the speakers tweeter is not working.. Can you give me a solution.. Where can I get it replace??

How sure are you that't you tweeter and not a contact cable or, sunce they use cheap xhinese capacitors on the m-audio, just a capacitor has dead. Don't buy a tweeter, since they very often die and check the inputs , especially TRS amd rca and unscrew the the backplate and you'll notice that the cables and connectors used are cheapio. So it worth to check the pcb,s if you see broken caps. Which wouldn't surprise me , since their cheap once. And before buy another tweeter, first try it out on another small amplifier, to see if it works. Buying a new ine is the last fase, they ask high prices for a 10 dollar unit. Where did you buy it and how old is the unit?

How do i tell if my problem if the high freq diaphram or the cross over

The crossovers in professional speakers don't fail that easily. It could be a blown tweeter. To confirm remove the metal grille-- remove the screws of the Horn Tweeter -- remove the cable connectors on the tweeter terminals ( Red and Black wire ). Now if you have a multimeter put it in Ohms range and touch the probes on the tweeter terminals-- It should show a reading betwwen 4 to 8 Ohms depending what is written on the back of the tweeter magnet. If you do not have a Multimeter you can take an ordinary cell/battery ( 1.5v ) from a TV remote and touch the terminals of the Horn Tweeter with the battery. + to the tweeter + ( a small red dot or mark will be there on the tweeter ) and -- to the tweeter -- . When you touch the terminals or give 1.5 volt supply the tweeter will make a scratching noise.
If you do not hear the scratching noise - it indicates a blown tweeter coil and will need replacement.See link below for spares:-
But if it does, you are in trouble and will need professional help from a electronic technician.
Could be blown HF Amplifier, suspect the crossover last. They seldom fail.

Replacement KEF Coda III TWEETER Type SP1087

Go here and find a nice substitute. Many to choose from and it may be better to purchase a pair of them rather than have mis-matched ones. They should be inexpensive enough for you, as low as $2 up to $480. You just need the size of the mounting hole to find a replacement though.

I found that they can hold up to 6 1/2" speakers and 2" tweeters. I'm not sure the specific mounting depth but i can almost assure you there wont be any 6 1/2" speakers that require a whole lotta space
