Question about Audio Players & Recorders
You need to measure across the speakers themselves n ot the crossover (cap). If these are 8 ohm speakers, an ohm meter will read about 6 or so. That is because both impedence and resistance use the same measurement. With an ohm meter you are measuring resistance. The speakers are rated using impedence.
If both speakers are open (measure infinity), I would suspect a problem with the stereo that caused them to go open. With the stereo on and playing something (radio,cd , or whatever) use a DC voltmeter to measure between the speaker terminals (Red/Black). You should read essentially 0 no matter what the volume. If you read any DC more than 3/4 V, the problem is with the amp section of the stereo.
