Well I've been messing with my active setup and sometime along the way I blew my tweets. I knew things have not been sounding right, I just thought I needed more tuning, and play with my settings. I was addjusting my gain for my tweets today and noticed they were not working.

good news though, I think I got my mids tuned in.lol I'm not sure how the tweets even sounded, as I could not tell with ****** tuning. They did not seem to be distorting, but I may have been clipping them at high volume...anyways I need a new set of tweets. What do you suggest? Cheap would be nice since I think I'm gonna get a set of horns in the summer.

I dont want anything harsh. Or does anyone know how much ID would charge to repair them? I doubt the warranty covers them.

Hum you must have cross them real low. The passive crossover cut them at 4,3khz with a 12db slope if i remember well.

I'm putting a lot of power to this set without any problem so far. They never ever smell with gain set at 300+ on dmm. I know they aren't getting the whole 300 constant, but some songs sure aren't far from the constant sinewave ... thinking about jeezy

are you running them active?

I neeeevver got them to stink, and the distortion was not terribly noticable if there was any. All I no is I hooked my dmm to them and there was no reading. Seems like they are blown right? ***** no matter

I hooked em up to a 9v battery and didnt get them to pop of anything....:confused:

what mid do you have them on?

I almost want to get out of active and go back to simple passive...I do see advantages in active tho

I'm suprised my midranges are decently keeping up to my substage:laugh:.....atleast I have some highs to listen too
