Question about Audio Players & Recorders
They will have either blown high frequency compression driver, or the lamp mounted to the crossover board has failed. Best way to check is pull the horn flare out of the speaker box, and check the voice coil of the HF driver(JBL2412). I think they are 8 ohms from memory. If they are shorted, or more likely open circuit then this is you problem. If they appear ok, then check the lamps. The lamps are there to protect the horns from being overdriven, odd lucks means I have seen it work the other way.
If the JBL part is too pricey for you (they are for me), you can get aftermarket replacements from many places for about $40 each. It is a replacement diaphragm that you need for each HF driver.
