My tweeters started shutting off at high volumes and come back on when the volume is tuned down for a few seconds. What causes this to happen? Im running them off boston 6.4 crossovers with boston 6.5 and the tweets are rockford punch series. Worked fine for about 3 weeks now they are shutting off. Any suggestions? If it was the amp you would think it would happen to the mids also.

Sounds like they might be xover too low,or they just cant handle the power straight up,and clipped at one time, and are DONE!

You should check them with a DMM,and see what Ohm load they are reading at,to see if they are in fact cooked

The crossovers have a switch for the tweets that say flat or -3db. They are currently set at -3bd. What's the differance of these settings and could this be causing my problem?

It could very well be.Run through them,and see.I like mine set @0,or +3-6db,depending on the xover.Try running through the db settings to see,but, Id still check the tweet for Ohm reading.
