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

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.
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
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...
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
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.
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!).
There are two things. First check the sound settings of the DVD player. It might be putting out a lower quality sound on the CD side of things.
Secondly try to determine if the speaker tweeters are working. Connect the speakers if you can to another sound source. If the speakers are good and the settings fine. Then you have a fault in the amp unit.
