Question about Cerwin Vega CLSC-15 Main / Stereo Speaker
Someone might have told you this before and they were right so I'm just going to repeat it, in the audio world, tweeters (like the ones in your model and many others) do not blow on there own nor are they easily blown by supplying them with a wattage more than what they are rated.
Remember wattage is relative, which in English means: you can blow a 1,000 watt speaker with a 100 watt amp just as well as you can power a 100 max wattage speaker with 1,000 watts without blowing it, it all falls back to our audio demon, clipping. Read the following article on clipping, learn and absorb because as long as you live, when there is an amplifier involved, there will be clipping (just how much is the key). This is an excellant article.
I will summarize what the article will tell you and be blunt about it! You are blowing your tweeters and will continue to do so until you understand this, your CV speakers are big and can create a very powerful sound provided you give them what they need. They need a large amount of wattage to perform to their peak. I can probably guess that you are powering these with a receiver, wrong answer. You need an solid state stand alone amplifier. Some thing the person who sold you these forgot to mention. Its not because they are Cerwin-Vega's or low quality, it the clipping from the amp that is killing your speakers.
Until you get a amp for your CV's, please keep the damage at bay and keep the volume down. Blast away after getting the amp. Below is a link to a example of the amp I referenced above.
Feel free to contact CV yourself and ask them as they will say what I just wrote but just nicer. You should replace the drivers with actual replacements. Use the link below to contact CV for replacement drivers.
I hope this helps you and your speakers.
