Yes, but it is attached to circuitry that allows only the high frequecies into it. You can replace the speaker with any 8 ohm tweeter without any difficulty, but if there is a capacitor across or in series with the speaker, make sure you put it on you new speaker the same way.

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.

Tweeter no sound but speaker no problem


In the most general, basic sense, I would be assuming that this is just one speaker and not 2 with this problem, or 3 or more.
Only way to get the ball rolling is pull the tweeter from the cabinet, checking to make sure all wires are connected at the tweeter and inside the speaker.
If that is the case, then you would need to determine if this is the tweeters fault, or its crossover (thing that divides the sound into whats right for the woofer and what the tweeter wants).
If you have a multi-meter, you would disconnect the wires from the tweeter, set the meter to ohms and touch a probe to each speaker terminal. No action means burned out tweeter, 100% action means burned out tweeter, a reading slightly less than the rating on the back of the tweeter (for instance an 8 ohm tweeter would show anywhere from 6 to 8 ohms on the meter) means tweeter is good.
If you have no meter then take the tweeter from the good speaker and swap in place of the bad one, making sure you respect + and - connections.Its a little risky this way,since if there is something wrong in the speaker it may hurt the good tweeter..(the meter is the safer bet). If it works, then you need a replacement tweeter, if not the problem is either wire connections inside the speaker, or something is wrong with the crossover.

What is the impedance of the midrange speaker and the tweeter speaker in the Pioneer cs r5100 ? I have the crossovers and the woofers I use for my front channels (L&R)


If you are running three 8 ohm speakers in parallel then the total impedance would be 2.667. If running two 8 ohm and one 6 ohm speaker in parallel you would have 2.4 ohms. This will burn out your amp pretty quick. And very possible won't play at all. Though I have never attempted to play a home amp down that low in ohms. Guessing you may have an older model Denon type amp.

What size fuse do i need to use for my speaker protection kit


This will be based on the 501 model as you did not give a model Also I am assuming speakers are 8 ohms which I have no firm information for the Tannoy, but they should be marked when you open the unit. We are allowed 40 watt RMS for the woofer and 20 watts RMS according to the specs. They do not tell us what impedance the speakers are so we will do calculations based on 8 ohm speakers... if yours are different, then recalculate; P = I^2 * R so for 40 watts and 8 ohms then I squared = 5 or the current is about 2.3 amps max... You COULD use a 2.5 amp fuse, but if they were my speakers I would use a 2 amp fast blow which gives a bit of margin for the woofer. Now for the Tweeter we have I squared is 20/8 so this comes out I squared equals 2.5 or taking the square root we have 1.58... you could use a 1.75 amp, but if they were mine, I would use either a 1.5 amp or even a 1 amp as the tweeters seem to get blown in these. ALL of these calcs are based on the specs of power for the 501 model and ASSUME 8 ohm speakers... Recalculate if your units have different impedance thaan the assumed 8 ohms.

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.

Can you wire an 8 ohm speaker and a 8 ohm tweeter together and maintain the 8 ohms at the cabinets output jack?


If you wire them in parallel, you will still maintain the 8 ohms, however, if you wire them in series, you will, of course, have double that, 16 ohms, which you don't want to do.
Hope this helps.

How do i tell if my problem if the high freq diaphram or the cross over


The crossovers in professional speakers don't fail that easily. It could be a blown tweeter. To confirm remove the metal grille-- remove the screws of the Horn Tweeter -- remove the cable connectors on the tweeter terminals ( Red and Black wire ). Now if you have a multimeter put it in Ohms range and touch the probes on the tweeter terminals-- It should show a reading betwwen 4 to 8 Ohms depending what is written on the back of the tweeter magnet. If you do not have a Multimeter you can take an ordinary cell/battery ( 1.5v ) from a TV remote and touch the terminals of the Horn Tweeter with the battery. + to the tweeter + ( a small red dot or mark will be there on the tweeter ) and -- to the tweeter -- . When you touch the terminals or give 1.5 volt supply the tweeter will make a scratching noise.
If you do not hear the scratching noise - it indicates a blown tweeter coil and will need replacement.See link below for spares:-
http://legacysoundservice.com/catalog1/product_info.php?products_id=1417
But if it does, you are in trouble and will need professional help from a electronic technician.
Could be blown HF Amplifier, suspect the crossover last. They seldom fail.

Hi i am looking for some motorola tweeters for dj speakers do you still do these


If you're looking for new tweeters, I'd start at e-bay, see if there's any that are matched with yours.

If not, look for (I presume) compression drivers, with the correct sensitivity (sound output at 1 watt) to your woofers. You may need to purchase an adaptor to make the new ones fit the horn.

Also, try to match impedance - if the old ones were 8 ohm, look for new ones that are 8 ohm. Use something different, and the crossover point won't be what's intended. It will either come in an octave too low (the tweeter would die) or too high (big hole in the frequency response).
