View Full Version : Tweeter problem.

I just bought a pair of pretty neat Cerwin-vega speakers off craigslist, got them home, plugged them in, and after not too long, realized one of the tweeters wasn't making any sound whatsoever.

I checked the connection to the tweeter... fine.

I realize tweeters are more or less impossible to repair themselves, but is it worth opening up the speaker to make sure the other end of the connection is ok? Any other suggestions? I'd rather not take these back (it was a pretty sweet deal), but I will if I need to.

If you can cleanly access the innards I would do so.

The problem may be as simple as a disconnected wire or even possibly a bad potentiometer in the crossover network.

Also, a small ohmmeter might be useful to test continuity on the voice coil as well.

After doing a bunch of troubleshooting, I've figured out that the problem is actually not with the magnet, but with the plate that the magnet attaches to. Any suggestions? How hard is it to replace?
