Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Tannoy v1 reduced brightness from one tweeter, diagnose? replace? honestly unsure if broken tweeter is the duller one or the brighter one, help?

Played too loud briefly speaker became bright then dimmed, i thought i had got away with it, now one tweeter is significantly dimmer than other, not distorted just dimmer at very high freq. i'm not even sure which speaker is correct?..when i listen close to tweeter it seems fine no distortion, could my cross over be damaged? tannoy have quoted a price for a new tweeter, i'm worried if crossover is the problem, any help or guess would be very welcome.

I assume you have more than one of these speakers. If so simply remove the tweeters from the two speakers and swap them around. If the other speaker acts up then, you know the tweeter is faulty. However if it stays on the same speaker it's the crossover that's the problem.

SOURCE: I have a pair of jamo R909 speakers that need crossover / board replacement--- any thoughts or suggested repair options? The company has been horrific. Love the speakers, but the company doesn't s

Hi Katrina,
Yes parts are available for your R909 speakers.
firstly I am surprised that you have managed to blow both tweeters and crossovers.....there must of been some serious distortion/amplifier clipping involved there???
So a couple of things.
Can you actually see damage to the crossover boards? If so what components have been damaged? i.e board loactions and parts.
The crossover is available but they are not cheap. $1560 each (AUS)
So it would be preferable and much cheaper to repair them at board level.
Tweeters are also available.. $745.00 each (AUS)

Regards John

I work in a church that has 4 passive speakers across the room, 3 out of 4 of them sound super muffled and n one of them sound perfect Ive tried switching power amps, there is no processing help?


I would say from your description that the tweeters are blown.
Can you take the speaker that sounds good and swap it out with one that sounds bad. If you do that and the good one still sounds good. You have a tweeter problem. And they would need to be replaced.

Tannoy reveal speakers have lost treble


What you need to do is connect a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker(s) terminals for a split second. Put your ear to the tweeter at the same time (you might someone to help you do this). If the tweeter "pops" it works, if not you might have blown them. The best way would (to be certain) is to remove the tweeter from the crossover inside the unit.
Tweeters are the first thing to go when the speaker has been connected to an amp that is wrong for them or they have been run at high volume.

When I unplug the mains adaptor on my laptop the screen goes brighter and then duller when the mains reapplied. How do I change it around


This is usually a BIOS adjustable feature. During startup, press the proper key (*) to enter BIOS. Look for LCD or something that would deal with brightness. Make the adjustment as desired.
You can adjust the brightness while running the computer using (usually) the function key and the brightness key. But only the BIOS adjustment will be permanent.

(*) Each computer manufacturer has their own key to get into BIOS so Google for your brand to see which key it is. Usually f2 or f10.

Replacement tweeters for Eyris 1


If any new readers are seeking the same advice, then as at Feb 2016, replacements are available from Real Electronics in the UK, 08452 307 747 - this info from the service line at Tannoy. £63.21 + VAT + delivery. Part no 7900 0621

Much of the advice above is not applicable to the Eyris, folks seem to be posting generic solutions.

Unbolt the hex bolts at the rear of the tweeter assembly. With a screwdriver or similar, push the threaded rods forward to move the front portion of the tweeter housing free from the cabinet. The amount of flexibility in the cables may vary, and some users may have to remove the terminal block (hex bolts again) on the rear, and remove the acoustic wadding to gain flex in the cables.

There are three terminals on the tweeter, with push-fit spade connections. Green for Earth, red/black for signal. Disconnect these, pull tweeter forward, remove threaded rods.

Reassembly is the reversal of removal. Ensure all cables go in same places, etc. etc.

I brought a pair of tannoy sensys dc1 bookshelfs a couple of years back and always thought i needed an extra cable for the super tweeter as i saw wires for it else where. but lately as i went to sell them...


On the images on Google for them there are no extra wires. Where are the wires on them? Do all the drive units work?
If the wires are for the super tweeter. Then looking around at the Google images it should be possible to unscrew the 4 screws holding the tweeters on top and you should be able to push the wires back inside the unit, if they are not connected to anything. Or at least see where they do connect.

My Tannoy Reveal 6D Monitors are only outputting sound from the tweeters. I'm looking for troubleshooting suggestions.


I still suggest calling Tannoy, They are usually very reasonable and will give you a fair price to service a very good product
