  • Recoil Blown SuperTweeters ?

    ive got 2 200W Pioneer Super Tweeters
    ,and the dubm *** i am , ive blown both !!
    now, i can get them recoiled at a 1/3 of the price of a new pair !

    is recoiling any good ?
    will it last
    or should i just cough up the cash & go buy sum new one's
    If its 2 loud ur Old ,;-)

    How did you blow them??
    I wouldn't know, but they probably wouldn't be the same if they were recoiled..

          well , out of pure Stupidity ..thats how i blew the tweeters
          my first time conecting speakers
          got them froma friend ( ie no documentation)
          i just conected the Tweets to a line coming from the cross over..
          hmm what r these big black box's 4 ?
          i found out ,that tweets need the caps 2 prevent them from "blowin"

          does any1 know if recoil is BaD ??

            Hmmmm...
            I don't know about that...
            did you actually hear them go, or did they just not work??

              No , did not hear them "blow" but they just stopped playin &
              tested them with a voltage meter:
              ie normaly speakers hav 4 ohm resistance
              when blown it is much higher .
              the tweets resistance was like 12-15 ohm's

              due to the fact that the coil's got melted

              or so im told
              but basicaly ,i know they'r fcked

                Wouldn't the resistence of the speakers be less or open circuit??
                If the coils melted together it would be less, and if you coils melted through, but didn't touch, it would be open circuit..??
                Right???

                  I hav no idea !
                  But the facts R:
                  Tweets dont work & Resistance when measured is high !!

                  welll i think im gonna try recoil them ..ill let every1 know if its any good !!

                      I dont think they do recoil speakers no days... Simply its not worth it.
                      However if your tweeters are blowen as you are saying then you wouldnt get any resistance at all.
                      As far as i can tell those are low power tweeters which means they cant melt they basicly will break somewhere in the coil.
                      Not every speaker is 4ohm.
                      There are 2ohm, 4ohm, 8ohm even 12 ohm. So the reading of the 12 ohm might be normal.
                      One thing to do is check you signal source connect it to another possible source if you can.
                      Its not easy blowing of your speaker by connecting it to a signal source if you not supplying too much power to it then what it can handle.

                        I,ve tried ,diferent source's
                        the tweets normal resistance is 4ohm
                        so 12 ohm , 4 them is wrong !! (trust me on this 1)

                        ive got sum1 that can fix/recoil the tweets at a 1/3 of the price of a new ones..
                        & im strapped 4 cash !
                        soo im gona try it

                          Don't know if it helps,but a couple of years ago I have my speakers blown (not tweeters),so I take them to recoiling,and the technician said me that now they will handle only 3/4 of their power.Check this out with your tweeters before recoiling them.

                            hi , just a follow up !
                            ive decided not 2 recoil the tweets , instead i just replaced the voicecoil with a stronger one
                            he he .. really sounds good

                            " capt ,i need mooore power "
                            hehe , one can never hav enough !!
