Is it old ? Is it making a rattling noise inside ? Completely lost its sound as in completely stopped sounding like a woofer and has higher frequencys coming out of it or as in no sound at all coming out of it ? I would say it's probably the crossover, perhaps a burnt resistor.

Connecting new woofers and tweeter, which color wire is positive and negative


Normally, the red wire will be right side sound and black/white will be left side. However, if you are hooking up power, red is positive and black will be negative.

I need a color coded wiring diagram for a peavey PV115 speaker cabinet.


Usually the colors you will find are red and black pair and yellow and white... USUALLY the red/blk pair go to the tweeter horn with red going to the + lead of the horn drivers. Usually the yellow/white pair go to the woofer with the white going to the + lead of the woofer in Peavey speakers... HOWEVER you never know if someone has rewired the cabinet so going by colors is NOT the best way to go... This should have the "soundgard" circuit in it and the lead that goes throught the lamp and resistor that is NOT connected to the inout jack is the TWEETER + lead. The pair that connects to the inout jack DIRECTELY is the woofer leads and the TIP connection of a 1/4 inch jack is the + woofer lead. Verifying these connections is the best method.

Hello, I have a woofer from a set of diamond 8.3 Wharfedale speaker. The woofer sounds like the coild is rubbing and emits a scratching sound. Looking for possible repir solution and the model no. for the...


Hello
The voice coil of your speaker is scratching with its magenet body inside. It can't be repaired. Whatever we do will go in vein. there is no possibility other than replacing this speaker. Some people will recone it, but qulaity cannot be assured. it will sound; but with respect to the other speaker, it won't match. Coil position, resistance, number of turns per unit length ete are determining the magnetic strenth of the coil, and therby sound. Wharfedale eill have its secret, and they wont give it out, as they have gained it with tremndous reserch.
So in my opinion, it will be best for you to replace the damaged speaker with and other one of same type and number. All details will be printed on its body. Buy the original one. Do not compromise. Woofers are the heart of any sound system. Keep this in mind. OK.

Need to find out which is the proper speaker wires for hook up yellow to tweeter or sub? And striped one is positive or negative?


You can probably trace which colors go to the smaller of the amps... Yellow is often used for tweeter but there really is no standard. Striped wire is probably the minus lead. If a pair is heavier, that would be the pair for the woofer... and red is often positive for woofer and black the minus. Searching the Mackie schematics doesn't really show colors. You could call their service dept.

The cooling fins on my Wharfedale SW250 sub woofer are always quite warm, even when I have not used it for a couple of days. Is this Normal?


Sounds like it is on standby all the time. It only powers up fully when detecting an audio signal but will otherwise be in constant low power mode when not used.

Can't get wharfedale melton 2 tweeter to work. Looked inside cabinet and need advice on internal wiring please. These are very old but one works perfectly and the 12'' bass driver on the problem speaker is...


The tweeter has burned out and cannot be salvaged. I also own a pair of (ex) Melton 2s. In the beginning Wharfedale were good at supplying spares (see www.wharfedale.co.uk for contact info and advice). A few years ago after my cat destroyed the 12 inch unit in one, i invested in new insides, including state of the art 12 inch woofers, 4 inch mid range and 1inch tweeters with a good 3 way crossover. The cabinet is great so consider asking a techie friend to do this for you. Please don't just cut out and connect to amp speaker wires! You will get terrible sound and risk ruining both amp and speakers! Best regards Karl (karl@simpson.nom.fr)

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
