Hmm, what killed the tweeters? Over-exuberant operation? What's going on with your amp? Is it being pushed into stress or distortion? THAT will kill a speaker faster than clean high power.

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.

Did you change out the factory deck? If not, wire the tweets to the existing wiring. If you already have tweets they have been crossedover already. However, if you replaced the deck, you may need to run new wire to the doors and use the crossover that came with your component set. Hope this helps

Tannoy reveal speakers have lost treble


What you need to do is connect a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker(s) terminals for a split second. Put your ear to the tweeter at the same time (you might someone to help you do this). If the tweeter "pops" it works, if not you might have blown them. The best way would (to be certain) is to remove the tweeter from the crossover inside the unit.
Tweeters are the first thing to go when the speaker has been connected to an amp that is wrong for them or they have been run at high volume.

How do you install dome tweeters?


tweeters get installed almost like any other speaker. you pick a mounting spot, then mount them, or cut the hole for recessed tweeters, etc. run the wire to the closest speaker wire from your stereo, and just splice it in. you will however need some kind of crossover to prevent the low frequencies from being played through the tweeters. if you buy new tweets, they usually come with their own crossover, or there are a few different styles you can get.there are the passive crossovers, the ones that look like small boxes. there are also the inline filters. these are the ones that you splice into the positive speaker wire to filter out the low frequencies. and some aftermarket stereos come with some kind of filter or equalizer built in, depending on your model. what I would do is buy one of the inline filters for each tweeter. theyre inexpensive, and easy to install, and they work great. so basically, just mount the tweeter, run its wires to an existing speaker wire and splice it in, and install an inline filter on the positive wire for the tweeter. oh, one last thing. if your interior speakers are powered by an amplifier and not by the stereo, then just run the tweeter wire to the speaker outputs on the back of the stereo. too much power will definitely destroy any tweeter. good luck!

No sound out of tweeters, highs out of woofers?


it does sound like you shorted out your crossover which can be fixed if you know what you are doing, but in the long run i would try to get another one i know that raidoshack sells some small ones and is also cheap, if your positive that you didnt short out the crossover se if it needs power, see if you can cross your woffers and tweeters on the crossover, if not is there any settings that u can change on the crossover? hope i helped :)

How do i replace a broken speaker in passport 9500i


The speaker is manufactured by PUI, but it is a custom OEM job for Escort. So you can't get it from any distributor or from PUI. In the late summer of 2007 Escort started installing a new "high temp" speaker. This new speaker looks just like the original speaker, but it is designed to be able to handle very high temperatures without blowing. If your 9500i is still in warranty, Escort will replace the speaker with the new "high temp" speaker, test and calibrate your 9500i, and install whatever their latest firmware is. If your 9500i is out-of-warranty, then you should call them and see if they will send you a replacement "high temp" speaker for a small charge. The speaker is easy to replace. A good while back I posted on radardetector.net detailed instructions on how to replace a 9500i speaker. It takes all of 10 minutes to do.

I have a kenwwod AX-7 home theatre systems. the right side top speaker (tweeter) on one side does not work. i'm thinking there is a fualt with the amplifier on the right side.


If the only problem is the tweeter, and the woofer is still working, you do not have a problem in the amplifier. The problem is the speaker. The tweeter is blown or you have a problem in the cross over network in the speaker.

You can always switch the speakers and connect them to the opposite channel. You can do this very easy at the back of the receiver where the speaker wires are at. Put the left speaker wires on the right speaker and the right speaker wires on the left speaker. If the same speaker still has no tweeter you know that the speaker is the problem.

The only way this could be a problem in the amplifier is if you have two different sets of inputs for each speaker, one being the low end for the woofer and the other being the high end for the mid range and tweeter. That would mean you have two sets of speaker wires going to each speaker. Each set of speaker wires would have a positive wire and a negative wire for a total of 4 wires going to each speaker. I don't remember this system being set up that way, but I could be wrong.

I hope this was helpful, you should be able to get the speaker fixed at an authorized Kenwood repair center in your area for a reasonable price. As a guide, my shop only charges $25 for the labor plus the cost of the tweeter to replace a tweeter. Any other shop should be similar. Kenwood does sell replacement drivers for almost all of their speakers.

M-Audio MX8a tweeter replacement


Remove the six hex screws from the plastic front speaker housing. It\'s the piece with the speaker\'s make and model imprinted.

Gently pry the cover off. The blue LED light can be easily freed by gently prying it loose from the back of the plastic housing. You\'ll notice the two wires connecting your tweeter. Don\'t pull too hard on the cover while the tweeter is still attached to prevent detaching the wires. Instead, take very short, stubby Phillips head screwdriver and remove the two screws holding the small plastic brace against the back of the tweeter. It\'s a tight fit. Don\'t pull too hard on the wires! Next, push the tweeter out from the front, touching only the extreme outer rim. Or, use needlenosed pliers to grip the heat sink on the back of the tweeter and gently pull from the back. The tweeter has a very powerful magnet. Find a small but robust rectangle made of ferrous metal. Large enough to span the front diameter of the tweeter. When the speaker magnet grabs the little metal plate, adjust the plate until the buzzing stops. This means of course that you have to turn the power to the speaker on.

The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.
See http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-speakers/4549-wharfedale-modus-one-six-crossover-pics.html
for pictures.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.

This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.

good luck Danny Mol
