Replacement tweeters for Eyris 1

My infant son has removed the tweeter grills and poked the tweeters for both eyris 1's. The tweeter are now concave. I am assuming that they should be replaced. Can you tell me where to source the tweeters and the approximate cost.

Thanks

Tom

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.

    Also, there's an internal terminal block connecting the tweeter assembly to the main wiring loom. Unplugging this may gain extra flexibility in the cables, allowing easier removal and reinstallation.

The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.
See http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-speakers/4549-wharfedale-modus-one-six-crossover-pics.html
for pictures.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.

This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.

SOURCE: Need to replace 11L tweeter

Your speaker is designed as a sealed system. This means that along with the screws to hold down the tweeter, there is a putty seal. This acts more like glue over time. You will need to carefully pry the tweet out of the hole. You may find it easier to pry off the woofer first, then reach inside the cabinet to push out the tweeter.

Keep us posted on your progress.

SOURCE: 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

Polk rti6 tweers blown...4 speakers.....can these tweeters be repaired


It may be possible to have the tweeters repaired by Polk however if you have the skills your least expensive route would be to replace the tweeters and install them your self. I would recommend using the internet to find replacement tweeters either through Polk or possibly Ebay, or Amazon. Each tweeter has 2 wires that must be removed before uninstalling. Note the polarity and where they connect. red is + POSITIVE , BLACK IS - NEGATIVE

How do i tell if my problem if the high freq diaphram or the cross over


The crossovers in professional speakers don't fail that easily. It could be a blown tweeter. To confirm remove the metal grille-- remove the screws of the Horn Tweeter -- remove the cable connectors on the tweeter terminals ( Red and Black wire ). Now if you have a multimeter put it in Ohms range and touch the probes on the tweeter terminals-- It should show a reading betwwen 4 to 8 Ohms depending what is written on the back of the tweeter magnet. If you do not have a Multimeter you can take an ordinary cell/battery ( 1.5v ) from a TV remote and touch the terminals of the Horn Tweeter with the battery. + to the tweeter + ( a small red dot or mark will be there on the tweeter ) and -- to the tweeter -- . When you touch the terminals or give 1.5 volt supply the tweeter will make a scratching noise.
If you do not hear the scratching noise - it indicates a blown tweeter coil and will need replacement.See link below for spares:-
http://legacysoundservice.com/catalog1/product_info.php?products_id=1417
But if it does, you are in trouble and will need professional help from a electronic technician.
Could be blown HF Amplifier, suspect the crossover last. They seldom fail.

What size are the tweeters in a 2000 gmc sierra extended cab truck? In the door, there are 2 sets of speakers. The 6 3/4" and another smaller pair. What is the size of the smaller set? I have a 2000...


Hello.. the tweeters in the doors are 1 inch tweeters, but they have a large housing. Every set that I have come across are usually hanging because the 2 plastic nipples that go through the panel break off. They have a self-threading bolt on the back and they all eventually come off. You can rotate the tweeter slightly and run a panhead screw with a stinger tip to keep them up. If you are adding a pair of tweeters, just leave those in the door panel and just remove the metal grille that covers the speakers and add them next to the factory ones. You can just wire them in with the factory wiring. Just be sure to wire it on the door panel clip side so you can remove the door panel without having to cut the wires every time. You will have to remove the panel to gain access to removing the metal grille on the panel. Hope this helps! Good luck with your venture!

Tweeter not working


Check the continuity of the removed tweeter with a VOM meter (I use an original Heatkit MM-1 available on eBay for $20) and do the 1.5 volt battery click & scratch test mentioned above.

Celestion A3 tweeters (also used in the A1 and A2 speakers) or the replacement diaphragms are no longer available from Celestion. A1 speakers show up regularly on the United Kingdom eBay website for $300 or less and are small enough to economically ship to the USA. You would also end up with a midrange spare speaker (assuming it is the same as in the A3 cabinets)

The part number for the A series 3 bar tweeter is T4969/P. The 3 bars refers to the 3 bars in the casting to protect the dome. I got this number from the box of my spare tweeter I have the earlier 1 bar castings in my A3's.

Go to www.ersatzteil-versand.at do an "artikelsuche" (article search) for the number T4969/P and something extremeley similar shows up except that they list the manufacturer as Onkyo. The part number and description are so similar to what is printed on my spare tweeter box it would be worth 81 euros to see what shows up.
I have designed an adapter plate for either a Scan-Speak Revelator Tweeter D2904/710002 4 ohm, 1" soft dome, 70 mm diameter magnet, $220 or a Vifa D27TG35-06 6 ohms, 72 mm diameter magnet, 91 db, $37.50..Both are available from:
http://www.speakercity.com/ in Burbank, CA


39baa5b.jpg
I only modeled the front flange of the tweeter to save time. I have not built any of these yet but the price would probably be $400 for a pair of adapter plates and speaker flange modifications. But when you are done you would have replaceable tweeter for a long time to come. The 2 protective bars are drawer handles available for $3 each.

Other possibilities are:
http://www.audioloudspeakers.co.uk/boultons.shtml voice coil rewinding in the uk

http://www.speaker-repairs.com.au/coils.htm voice coil rewinding in australia

http://www.speakerex.com/diaphragms_new.html in Florida can rebuild the woofer and replace the midrange but no longer have the 4 ohm diaphragm for the tweeter.

If you want the drawings (and 3D geometry file necessary for the machinist to make the curved edges) for the adapter plate and tweeter flange modification contact me at mercedes280se-4@yahoo.com

Tweeters poked to death


I know this sounds silly, but I had the same problem. Your speakers have a little plastic bulb that has been pushed in, right?

If so, simply put your mouth up to the tweeter, seal with your lips and **** gently (seriously). The tweeter dome should pop back out and in to shape.

It worked for me.

Good luck.

Need to replace 11L tweeter


the best solution I've found is this:
1. Remove all the tweeter screws.
2. Take a thing metal rod (a coat hanger should work) and lightly tap the tweeter through the top port in the rear until it is loosened and comes out. The tweeter is totally sealed so you probably won't damage it if you need to do this to a working tweeter.

This method also works for the woofer but you need to be very careful to tap the frame or magnet of the woofer and not the cone.

Tweeters only works when touched!


This is not a solution, but I have the same problem. Obviously, the problem is with the tweeter not the crossover. I can't find a replacement tweeter so i am about to take it to my local stereo repair store and see if they can fix it. If you find a replacement tweeter, let me know.
