Phase technology 6.5 tatro center speaker

I think my tatro center has either blown or is on the way out Im only getting a tinny sound. I switched it with one of the surrond and hit test on the yamaha. the suround at center sounded good, very light tinny sound from the center in place of the left surround, can it be rebuilt. any ideas on cost?
thanks steve

Hi,

If it were really the central speaker and if the original is no longer in production, often they can be replaced with newer models with the same electrical specifications (ohm/watts). The only limiting factor to the choice would be the physical dimension of the enclosure and that of the speaker itself. Most electronic parts supply store carry branded/generic speakers and it may be to your advantage to bring along the defective speaker (if determined to be so) for an "as per sample" purchase.

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.

    If you are considering a full replacement (and not repair or speaker only), you might be interested in the choices here of Phase Technology speakers.

    Cheers.

Check the wire contacts and make sure they are secure and viable.

    You can also try changing the jack on the center speaker. That may help. If not, its best to get a more up to date system...

    I believe the tatro is not sold any longer. You could try eBay..

I just connected two sets of 901'a to Sansui G901 receiver. The sound is TINNY no bass at all. I've tried different connections and nothing seems to work. I've used two different EQ from bosse series


Either there is NO bass on the recordings (if you listen to it with headphones does it have bass?) ...OR...you've wired them out of phase. Connect only one(1) Bose 901's to just one side. Is there bass? Then connect the other side. IS there bass? If not reverse the phase (+ /- connections) and see if the bass comes back. Once that is done and there is BASS, then add the 3rd and then the 4th speaker. .Are you sure your Sansui can handle a lower than 4 ohm load???

Diostortion, tinny , on one speaker, Dell Hi Perfomance, connected to base box. circa 2007, amd sempron processor, 3400+1.80 ghz


If it's distorted and tinny, the speaker is probably blown out, if the other speaker is working fine then the computer is not at fault!

So, you can either get new speakers, or a replacement component for that speaker.

I have just bought an amplifier for some old Kef speakers but the speakers sound very tinny. Does this mean they need replacing too?


It's not clear how the speakers sound with a different amp or if other speakers sound tinny with this amp. What's the source you're listening to? If it's Phono that opens up a different can of worms.

Can you certify that the electronics is faultless in this scenario? More info on that piece may be helpful.

The woofers could both be blown but I doubt it. Tweeters usally die if a speaker is overloaded. You should be able to see or feel the woofers vibrating in the presence of bass.

Bassles Powerplant 6x9s


try reversing the polarity on one speaker.
they might be out of phase.
what happens is the speakers cancel out.
put the balance to one side,and if it has bass,then that is the problem.
if there is no bass with only one playing,then phasing is not the problem

Sound from my Gateway suddenly ''tinny''.


Yes that is the way to go unless you want to buy a sound card and stick it in an open slot if you have one.

On a car speaker is the small blade that connects the wires to it pos. or neg.? Thanks


The large blade is the + or positive terminal but so long as the left and right speaker are wired the same way it doesn't matter as it is the phase that matters -it's an AC signal so there really isn't a positive or negative voltage. If the speakers are not wired the same then they are out of phase which results in cancelling out frequencies like losing the bass and sounding 'tinny'. ~Steve Medley

Bass tone problem


Both of your problem amps were made in the '70's or earlier. It is entirely possible that the coupling capacitors are failing. This is an issue for a service center whether it is caps or something else, like failing tubes.

The good news is that installing metalized polypropelene capacitors will make those classic amps sound incredible.

Surround center speaker does not work


This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).
