Mission 780 speaker...Is it blown

Weird problem.I get a very low volume,, all treble sound when I play a CD.
I turn up the volume at the amp and one of the speakers come fullrange while the other side shows flashes or sparks in the cone region of the main top speaker/driver.These speakers are powered by a NAD 350 and have very little use since bought a few years ago.Any advice would be appreciated, but I am not a techie. Thanks Phil

    I have practically the same problem - minus the sparks!


    I have narrowed it down to one of the Keraform drivers not working, swapping the driver to the other speaker takes the problem with it


    You can get replacement drivers on eBay from the UK


    Good luck!

    I have exactly the same problem! I thought it was the woofer problem mentioned in some other problem log, is it not? Weird thing is, that sometimes sound is normal and after a while it goes back to that low volume - all treble sound. Sometimes one speaker is ok, most of the time they both go at the same time. Sorry I'm totally useless with any of the technical stuff. Where are those drivers, inside the speakers? Are they easy to change? How?

    I have exactly the same problem! Weak, all treble sound - I've suspected that something was wrong with my Harman Kardon amp, but the repair shop thorughly tested it and concluded - nothing wrong with the amp.. So, It is definitely speaker problem - help needed...

I lost the treble on both Alesis Monitor 1 speakers. The treble is good on the amp output toward the speakers. I'm thinking they went out one at a time and I didn't realize it until I lost the...


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.

Do i have to remove the pin between the two speaker treminals on my old mission 780 speakers before i bi wire them


Yes, the two sets of terminals are for the tweeter and bass driver.

When you bi-wire you want the low frequencies to go only to the bass driver and the high frequencies to go to the tweeter..

Please see this link for more information:

What are good settings to have to make the music sound clear for a jvc KD-R310 deck?


you will need to access the bass and treble setting on the unit.
If you have stnadard speaker then dont put the bass to high as you can not turn the volume up high.
The same for the treble.
Set them at about the same and turn the volume up until it sounds good.
If it is to quiet then turn the treble and bass down and then the volume up more

When playing on high volume the treble dissapear. I have a 2.6kw Cerwin amp. And Clsc 215 speakers. No bi- wire on my speakers. When I lower the volume the treble returnes. What is wrong???


Sounds like your overpowering the horns and the circuit breaker is tripping to prevent them from blowing. You are running more power then they can handle. You can turn down the volume or will have to purchase higher wattage horns...

Do you know if my woofer is blown?


well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck

My speakers sound flat with no highs at all


I am trying to work out if you have damaged the speakers and amp too.
Have you tried a pair of headphones on the amp? If they sound ok then your amp is fine.
Assuming it is, then speakers have what's called crossover units in side each of them. This splits the sound into three parts. Bass, midrange, treble. The bass is handled by the woofer's, the midrange by a middle sized speaker or or it's combined with a tweeter, which of course handles the treble.
Connecting a 1.5 volt battery across any of the individual speakers will cause it to pop if working. If the speaker then is not getting sound then the crossover unit is to blame.
When you look at the crossover unit, it will have coils and capacitors (non polarised) on it. The bigger ones deal with the bass and the smaller ones treble. If you find a fault say on the crossover of the speaker, for example no treble comes out of it. Then start by replacing the capacitors. Use the same value as on the capacitor and remember they fit any way round.

Mission speakers...i think i've blown one of them...


I'm guessing you mean one of the bass drivers (as standmount or floorstanding speakers don't have subs as such). Place your hand lightly against the driver when playing some music at normal volume, there should be some vibration (this increases the louder you play). If there's no vibration, you're probably right.

Contact Mission, who can send you a new driver, contact a Mission dealer to see how much it'll cost to go through the dealer network. I'd recommend going down the latter route if you are unsure of what to do yourself.

Just noticed you posted this in March, in which case, I hope you got it fixed (or are enjoying your new pair instead!).
