    Mid's bleeding through and distorting tweeters. bad crossover?

    This started happening a couple months ago, running a Hertz EP4 in 2 channel on a pair of Hertz mids, highs, and crossovers. (I honestly don't remember the model its been so long sens I looked at them) The deck is a DEH-80PRS, fronts are crossed in the deck at 80Hz with a 12db slope (trying to eliminate this issue) and the amp is wide open. No settings have changed, but now when certain mid bass frequencies play in tracks, they come out of the tweeters as well, completely sounding like **** and distorting everything. I don't think the tweeters are blown, because songs that don't have certain mid bass frequencies play perfectly (mid bass actually comes out of mids and highs are clean). So im kind of at a loss here, my first assumption is that the crossover is bleeding through (perhaps they're blown) but I really don't know.

    Any advice would be awesome, im happy to test any suggestions.

    Thanks and I hope you're all enjoying your Christmas

    If the crossovers were blown then you would have no sound on all or some of the speakers. So I doubt they are. Prolly just a phase or setting issue Try setting the deck a bit higher in the frequency filter and toning down the bass a bit not should work

    Everything's flat on the deck, cross is as high as it will go for the fronts :\

    Oh yeah my bad, crossed them at 120hz, mid driver output is nearly gone, but in extremely low bass songs I get occasional popping through the tweeters when the bass hits (sub 30hz stuff). Crossed at 200hz the mid drivers do nothing but highs are clean

    Tweets crack a bass drop?
    Check wiring, especially grounds.
    Your voltage good?



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"
