You can get replacements directly from Ohm. They have a website. They cost $95 each and are noticeably better than the old woofers. Ed

A replacement tweeter for Yamaha S215V speaker


I generally get replacements from Simply Speakers. Their site is-Replacement by Simply... Genuine Eminence Parts New
You can also just replace the diaphragm. The procedure is on YouTube here-

Be sure you check what impedence you need. If you look at the lable on the driver it will normally say, but if not ask them about your specific cabinet. For instance the 8 ohm single 15" Yamaha Club Series 4 uses a 16 ohm driver in their 8 ohm box.

I have a Makita BMR100 radio. Stock speakers are 3.25" 8 ohm with an 8 watt 8 ohm amplifier. I replaced speakers with better 4" 4 ohm but they're not really compatible with an 8 ohm amp. I...


Buy an 8 ohm speaker and wire it in series-parallel look up images of of combination series-parallel wiring this allows wiring all speakers and keeping the 8 ohm loaf on the amplifier. Should get more linear volume between speakers. Not sure if replacement is worth it, those speakers are pretty good and work well with rain and jobsite conditions. I am planning to install some 8 ohm half inch tweeters on my Makita radio and using the series parallel wiring. Plead note series-parallel wiring is not series wiring or parallel wiring. It is s totally different way of wiring it that uses both names.

I have a budda superdrive 30 II amp and have a setting question. I made a 2-12 cabinet to hook to this amp. Each speaker is 4 ohms. They are wired to their own output jack. My amp has 2 outputs for...


You best rewire the cabinet to put the two speakers in series. Wire one speaker plus to minus of the other and bring the other lead, one from each speaker to your jack on the cabinet. The amp output impedance is what is set on the switch... for two 8 ohm speakers you would use both jacks to the two speakers BUT ssince you have 4 ohm speakers the ONLY option is for two in series and set the switch to 8 ohms. The amp is ONLY 30 Watts so don't expect too much sound output... You should get a nice CLEAN sound at a reasonable level. If you drive the amp too hard it will clip and you will get garbage.

Lower speaker of Bronze B1 not producing sound. How to diagnose?


Remove rear cover of cabinet, or remove speaker (woofer) from the front of the cabinet. Diconnect leads attached to speaker, make a note of how it is connected. Using a multimeter, measure the resistance (ohms) across the two terminals. If infinite, voice coil is open and woofer will have to be replaced. If shows continuity (6-8 ohms) speaker is good, problem lies in the crossover.

How to connect the speaker cabinet to the head?


Use a SPEAKER RATED cable which will have good quality 1/4 inch jacks. Go from a speaker out on the head to one of the jacks provided on the speaker cabinet. NOTE: some newer speaker cabinets use SPEAKON connectors and if those are provided, they are more secure than 1/4 inch plugs/jacks.

PLEASE loop the speaker cables through a handle of the cabinet at each end to avoid them being yanked out while hot as the amplifier can be damaged if it happens.

OBSERVE the maximum load. If the amp says 4 ohms minimum, put no more than two 8 ohm cabinets on the amp as two 8 ohms parallel to 4 ohms.

DO NOT use an instrument cable.

Changing the omes of a 4 10'' bass cabinet


i guess ur talking about four nos of  4ohms 10" speakers. two speakers of four ohms connected in series gives 8 ohms, but if u use parallel connection u will get half of individual ohms i.e 2 ohms. so connect two speakers in series and another two speakers in series. parallel the two serial speakers and voila... u get a 4ohms speaker with double the wattage.
parallel connection - connect +ve to +ve and -ve to -ve.
series connection - connect -ve of one speaker to +ve of another speaker so that u have +ve input to one speaker and ground(-ve) on the second speaker.
So, two separate series speaker then parallel the two series speakers.

These sound like they a JBL speaker.
1. You will need the impedence and diameter spec and the Hz (hertz) specifications to get a replacement set.
you can call JBL Altec-Lansing is the company that manufacturer this series of speaker.\ On the back of you speaker cabinet should be a phone number to the company or check the user manual that you received with the speaker system and they should be able to give full information on how to replace the speaker in question or where to have it repaired.
The cabinet is glued together and will need a cabinet expert to disassemble.
Contact JBL for more information.

I have a set of peavey scorpion sp5xt's one works fine but if i plug into the other one ,in full range, only the horn works,


Horn and speaker combo cabinets have an electronic component called a "crossover". The horn and speaker both work off different electrical signal frequencies. If you can take off the back, or get inside by pulling the speaker, check for a small circuit board mounted inside the box or on the speaker or horn. Check for a broken wire or loose connection of the crimp connectors.

A common problem with speakers, often the cone, or paper part of the speaker will come un-glued or separated from the magnet "voice coil". This happens when played too loud, when it's commected to the wrong impedance, or if the signal was shorted and "overdriven" (usually sounds like an awful buzz that's really loud).

Always make sure your output impedance matches the impedance of the speaker. Most auto stereos are 4 Ohms. Older home stereos are typically 8 Ohms. Musical PA gear varies between 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. Peavey gear is typicall 4 Ohms, but some older models are different. The Ohm rating is the amount of the resistance in the circuit. If your speaker is 4 Ohms and you plug it into an 8 Ohm circuit, you can destroy the speaker and sometimes the crossover circuit board.

Good Luck.
