Question about Mission 782 Main / Stereo Speaker

3 Answers

Midrange faulty I have a set of Mission 782’s (bought Dec 1999), whereby one of the 13 cm midrange drivers appears to have a problem. It regularly produces a loud resonance, and sometimes a knittering sound, always at about the same midrange frequency. 1 Can I assume that the fault is the driver, or could it be the crossover? 2 The driver is leaking fluid (and has been doing so from the beginning). I understand from the internet that this is a known manufacturing flaw. Will any replacement driver have the same weakness, or has the design been improved? 3 In this context, do I need to replace the midrange driver in the other speaker also? Otherwise I might end up with two unequal drivers (due to manufacturing changes since 1999), or at least one that has been running for 7.5 years, and the other new 4 How to get the right original pieces in Europe? 5 Can I expect the same fluid leakage problem with the 16 cm bass driver, or is this specific for the 13 cm driver? Cheers! VanManen

    Same midrange failure in the left side unit. No leaking fuild to be found or any signs there ever was any though. The 130mm Keraform unit just started to crackle, then cut in and out finally just failing altogether in a span of less then 10 minutes.

    Yep - similar problem here as well. Both mid-range units have failed in my 782's, bought new in 2001 (so approx 8 years old). No noticable leak of fluid. They started to work intermittently - seemed to clear if I turned the wick up a little; but then died completely. Just contacted Mission to see what they say - not the kind of life I expect from a pair of £700 speakers!!

    P.S. noticed there's a guy selling replacement units on ebay for approx £40.

Mission supply an upgrade driver to rectify this problem.

Posted on Mar 21, 2013


I've had the same problem/s. A manufacturing fault with the original midrange drivers of all of my Mission 780's and 782 speakers. If you contact Mission through their website they will supply an updated style driver for about £45, I would recommend buying 2 because the other one will fail eventually, if like me you use them every day. All four failed within two years of each other.

Onkyo TX-SR602 only puts sound out through tweeters, not midrange drivers.

Check speakers ‎Crossover circuit instead of SR602 . The speakers ,midrange drivers, may be damaged. Connect a small speakers at least 4 ohms to see if any sound comes out.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!

What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.


How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

Fix a torn speaker cone?

If it is a woofer, you would probably fix it quite easy. If the speaker driver is used for both bass and midrange, you have a problem.
Fixing a speaker cone is depending on the material. If it is paper cone, it is very easy by using paper that you glue with wood glue (White water based glue) on to the cones rear side (for estetic reasons).
A midrange or bass/midrange driver is operating in frequencies where the cone starts to break up. Not torn apart, but the break up frequency is the frequency where the inner and outer part of the cone not longer follow each other in the same direction. These properties of a cone determine the sound of the speaker which is that type of speaker drivers "identity". Messing that identity up, you end up with a speaker that does not sound as the original one.
Remember that cross over network used to split up frequency ranges, not only are lowpass, bandpass, and highpass filter, but they also filter irregularities where the speaker driver is not longer providing a linear frequency response (Its characteristic sound).

If the cone is polypropylene, there isn't much glue that bite on that material.

What caused mission speakers 783 midrange problem? is it overload ?

This failure has nothing to do with the main current. If that were the problem, your amp just wouldn't work. How exactly would you discribe the problem?

I don't understand how to use the 'tone' controls

Watch vidoes on "mixer setup". Don't worry if they are not your exact model as the principles are essentially the same among the various types. EQ controls for the channels are "flat" when they are all set to 1 o'clock. The lower one reduces or boosts the bass, the next the midrange and the high the trebles. SOme have a midrange EQ frequency which adjusts the cnterpoint of the midrange frequency. Leave this at 12 o'clock until you get familiar with the rest if your unit happens to have that extra control.

Just the tweeter is playing and not the mid

It's a midrange component speaker. Possibly your midrange speaker is blown. Check your wiring.

You hear the tweeters i am assuming because the vehicle has tweeter component speakers that are separate from the midrange and low components.

Check coolant level, and possibly replace thermostat. When a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant does not circulate thru motor. Gauge stays midrange when driving, because motor is being cooled by air and or the fan. If car seems to operate completely normal, then the gauge is faulty.
