Question about B&W DM603 S2 Speaker

1 Answer

The tweeter on one of my B&W DM 603 S2 speakers is dented and does not appear to work now. Is it wise for me to pull the speaker under it and look in the cabinet to see any problem? Where can I order a replacement part in the Northern Virginia area? Thank you.

It sounds like a ground problem with the speaker crossover circuit or the amplifier. Turn the amp off and disconnect one speaker and interchange it with the other using the same speaker wires. If the static speaker is now working interchange the speaker wires and try it again. Or if the same speaker still has static it is the speaker. If the static is on the same channel then you have a bad wire or if both channels work it was a bad connection. If the problem remains on the same channel change the speaker wires. If the problem switched to the other channel then it is a bad speaker wire or connection. If the same speaker has the same problem it is most likely the crossover circuit in the speaker which is used to filter frequencies of the audio signal by using capacitors and coils. If the static speaker is now working and the other speaker is now not working it is the amplifier. If the static problem is on all input devices I would trouble shoot the preamp section of the amplifier.

tweeter burn out is primarely due to too much power input not so much from load music but the amp may be putting out far more than 8 ohms / replace the speakers but install a little device called a polly switch protector they work like a fuse if there is too much power they open and dont allow harmfull power to burn out the coils then when the power reduces they close turning the speakers back on
look them up on the net any goo speaker retailor will know what they are and were to get then they cost about $ 2 lots of money ay makes you wonder why there not stock standered on all speaker enclose ,

SOURCE: Two questions: 1) I have a

These are very good speakers with three speakers in the enclosure.
1. Check to see if the wires broke on the tweeter that fell out. A friend with a screwdriver can remove the bigger speaker to inspect the damage. I think the tweeter is probably OK.
2. It is possible to swap tweeters with your other unit to ensure it is the tweeter and not the wiring or crossover. There is a small electronic unit in the cabinet that serves all three speakers.
3. You most certainly replace this tweeter to get the speaker system back to specifications.

I am unsure about the HF or LF connections. If you have an instruction manual, it would be in there. HF is probably High Frequency; LF is probably Low Frequency. Whoever sells the tweeter will know the answer to that question. Lacking any other information, I would connect to the other set & see if I could hear a difference in low frequency response.

Dm605 s2 speakers have static noise


If the noise you hear comes from the tweeter or the midrange speakers, it means your amplifier is noisy; if the noise comes from the woofer, then the internal amplifier (it has its own) of the speaker is noisy. If both speakers are noisy, it is most probable that the "static noise" you hear comes from the external amplifier, which you will have to check or change.

I had a party last weekend, and someone put their finger into the tweeter for my celestion a2.it is dented but still works. are there any shops that do spare tweeters for those speakers? i really hope...


If you have little kids the center of a tweeter is the perfect place to poke, And wow it dents just like that. Hears a tip. Get some black electrical tape and cut a piece just big enough to fit on the dent, leave a tail piece to hold on to, Then with a quick yank pull the tape directly toward you. this in most cases will pull the dent out clean. There are some cases where leaving the dent may cause distortion in the first harmonic however this is very small so the dent though ugly , presents no problem. THE GREAT OZ.

I bought a pair of Mordaunt Short Qviano 1 speakers from Richer Sounds 18 months ago and now find that the tweeter in both units has failed. The amplifier I am using is rated at 70 watts which is within...


Specs refer to UNdistorted sound. Send square waves to any speaker and it will die eventually, perhaps even the amp.

You are more likely to blow up speakers with an under-powered amp pushed to hard than a monster amp running well within its capacity. Distortion percentages rise vertically once the amp's useful range is exceeded. Tweeters are usually the first casualties.

It's tweeter hunting time.

Eon 15-g2 upper part of my jbl is getting hot


The tweeter is not the problem. The Eons use the vents below the tweeter to cool the amp and woofer. Sounds to me like you have a power supply problem in the amp, possibly a bad capacitor or diode. You have to check the amp for proper operation.

Inverted(puhed in)tweeter


Hi George,

You may be able to pull them out using tape. That is sellotape then gently pull .They should pop out like
a dented car panel. My understanding is these domes really protect moving coil from dust so should not affect sound. Worst case swop the tweeter.
Ive just bought a pair of revolution 3 with same "fault" so I will let you know how I get on .I am in Electronics trade as profession. It may be possible to gently remove dome using a surgical blade then popping out and gluing on with PVA / Latex glue coloured with black ink if you dont like white appearance.

It is sometimes possible to pull out using fine sewing needle push in then gently pull out as if removing a spell from your finger.

Hope this helps

Midiland s2-4100 - disconnected tweeter


At this point, you might just want to look at it again and worst case senereo, you mess up the face of the speaker to get inside, Since it does not work, and its not one of those speakers that you normally send out to fix. It is a throw away item. This is why they don't want to deal with you. Cheap speakers are anything under 300, and usually cost more to send out.
