Need to replace 11L tweeter

Hi,

I've blown the tweeter in my 11L. I have a new 11L tweeter but need to open up the 11L somehow. Can anyone post a picture, or just tell me how to open up the 11L?

I've taken off the grill, and used an allen key to remove the 4 bolts around the tweeter - but the tweeter does not budge at all.

Any ideas?

    Great! As I thought.

    So what tool would you use to wedge out the woofer without damaging the lacquer coating and the rubber around the drivers?

    Is a knife too tough?

    Should I deliver it to a service centre? Only unauthorized ones are available where I am (in Dubai). The cost of labour is approx $80.

The best solution I've found is this:
1. Remove all the tweeter screws.
2. Take a thing metal rod (a coat hanger should work) and lightly tap the tweeter through the top port in the rear until it is loosened and comes out. The tweeter is totally sealed so you probably won't damage it if you need to do this to a working tweeter.

This method also works for the woofer but you need to be very careful to tap the frame or magnet of the woofer and not the cone.

Your speaker is designed as a sealed system. This means that along with the screws to hold down the tweeter, there is a putty seal. This acts more like glue over time. You will need to carefully pry the tweet out of the hole. You may find it easier to pry off the woofer first, then reach inside the cabinet to push out the tweeter.

Keep us posted on your progress.

It would appear they've blown one channel on the Amplifier and one Tweeter on your Speaker. It's more than likely that the Tweeter has blown first and overloaded the Amplifier.

The Tweeter shouldn't be a problem to replace (eBay more than likely) and you'll probably be better getting a new pair and replacing them both.

The Amplifier could be a different issue depending what Country you're in and your Technical ability?.

If you need any further assistance once you've opened the unit then just ask.


Please leave feedback

I have just bought a technics sc-dv290 hi-fi off of my cousin and found out the mid range and the tweeters have blown does anyone know where i could get replacent tweeters and mid-range speakers for it if...


As you probably know, these are the individual model numbers:

SC-DV290 the base unit
SB-DV290 speaker set

Front SB-DV290
Center SB-PC95
Surround SB-PS95

I'd scour Google or eBay for any or all of those models. Orphan speakers appear periodically.

Front speakers


either the wires in the boot where door folds open has broken wires in it or the most likely case you have 2 blown wolfers and 1 blown tweeter. common for cars with the monsoon stereo system, they made the radio better than the speakers.

Re: Quad 11L tweeter replacement


Given the relatively small cost of the repair, I'd have the servicer do it. That way if anything happens, he/she is respionsible for it. When I repair this type of speaker, I usually use an old chisel. It is sharp enough to get under the edge and strong enough to pry up the speaker. Just be careful not to nick the cabinet.

Tweeter not working on 15" EON G2


I have the same problem and the same conditions.
The tweeter is good, 3.8 ohms.
Some points of solding (donuts), have bad aspect.
I resolder the power transistors to the PCB and I solve the problem.
