first you need a multimeter set to OHM , check on the back of the horn , remove the leads and do some reading , it should read 4 , 8 , 16 ohms depending of the brand , if you get no reading its means that need to be replaced , some horns you can detach the back (magnet w/the coil ) so you can replace it without buying the whole unit . good luck

SOURCE: Cerwin-Vega 12'', no power

It should have a small fuse on the board between the transformer and the board. Check that first. If it is good see if the transformer is putting out any voltage. Two easy fixes that can be done in house...

SOURCE: I have a Cerwin Vega E-315 speaker and the Woofer

Pull speaker so you can get to the terminals in back. Take an ohm meter and check the ohms of speake, a 4ohm speaker could measure up to 5ohms and still be good. If the reading is way off then it is blown. If speaker is good, then check the cross over thats in the speaker, some models put fuses on the units for protection, but mostley on the high frequency of the cross over, not the low.

I have a Cerwin Vega E-315 speaker and the Woofer has stopped working. The Tweeter and Mid-Range still work just fine. I just do not get any sound from the Woofer.

Only voice from tweeter is coming, nothing from the mid-range and woofers. on cerwin vega v10f


bhurajiv,
Well it's a good thing that you are getting sound from the tweeter from the speaker cabinet with the problem, that eliminates one of the possible problems; your wires are connected!

If your other speaker sounds fine, the first thing to try is to swap your speaker wires with the one that sounds fine. If the problem speaker cabinet still only produces sound from the tweeter, the problem is within the speaker. If the problem goes away, the problem is from your electronics.

If the problem is within your speaker and it is still under warranty, find a authorized repair location (http://www.cerwinvega.com/service_center.php).

Problems within the speaker can only be one or more of the following: 1) The drivers not producing sound have been blown; played with either too much power and/or distortion. Distortion is created when you play your music too loud with a amp not able to reproduce what you are looking for in sound, the speaker itself can hear it before you can.
2) The speaker cabinet has a crossover inside which directs the proper sounds to the proper driver. This crossover can have components that have been broken be either #1 or from exsessive vibration.
3) There are wires inside of the speaker cabinet that have been disconnected. This can happen over time or if someone reaches inside of the cabinet through the port and pulls on the wires; like a young child or pet such as cats.

If the drivers in question just one day stopped producing sound, start with the easiest solution, #3 then #1 if you can suspect anyone could have played your speakers other than you.

To diagnose the problem, you first start by removing the woofer and confirm that all of the wires are connected and in good condition. While the woofer is removed, to eliminate that there is a problem with the speakers, temporarily connect the mid-range and woofer, one at a time, directly to the wire coming from your electontics, if they produce sound the problem is within the crossover network, if they do not produce sound, the problem is with the driver itself. Replacement parts should only be purchased directly from Cerwin Vega directly (http://www.cerwinvega.com/contact_us.php)

I have a set of cerwin vega ls-12 3way woofer works but tweeters


There is an old cheap way to test any speaker. If you have a multi-meter, set it on OHMS. Then, while holding one lead against one speaker terminal, tap the other meter lead to the other speaker terminal. If the speaker is good, you will hear faint crackles. If you do not have a meter do not despair, you can do the same test using an AA or AAA battery with leads held to the battery.
Good luck! P.S. Nice speakers.

How can i take the grill off my cerwin vega cls-12 speaker


Many boxes use friction fit male/female PVC mounts that simply pry apart.

Use an old credit card (or, if you have too many, one that still works!) and slide it in the crack between the frame and box and try prying it.
If assembled this way, it should only take moderate force to pry it away from the box.
