Hi,

As the speaker lacked high tones, I checked the pcb for blown caps and changed a bunch of -probably- blown capacitors (with buldging tops). After the repairs, the issue is still there. The tweeters don't seem to work. Does anyone know where to look on the pcb for the tweeter capacitors/resitors? It seems unlikely the tweeters are both broken.. Or can it be?

Changed capacitors:

5x  35V 820 uF

2x 25V 470 uF

1x 25V 1000 uF

Thank you in advance!

Have you checked voltages? It’s unusual to have so many damaged capacitors. I suspect that they were  “killed”.

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply, I didnt get a notification. No I haven't checked it. I was not sure if they were really dead. They were just a bit buldging. So what voltages should I check?

Thanks.
