    Need some advice for home theatre speakers.

    About 6 or 8 years ago I purchased some pioneer tower speakers and put them in my room. I decided it'd be a good idea to bring them to college, and I think I blew the tweeter on it. We had a party, and were blasting some song, and all of the sudden it basically goes from extremely loud to about half as loud. The Mids on the speakers are fine, and sound good still, and I think the woofer is still good, just the tweeters are bad.

    Here are the speakers:
    http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...-H352F-K?tab=B

    Specifications:

    * 3-Way Floor Standing Loudspeaker
    * 12mm (1/2") Polycarbonate tweeter
    * 75mm (3") Bi-laminate midrange
    * 165mm (6.5") Polypropylene cone woofer

    Would it be possible to buy just a tweeter and a midrange from partsexpress and toss them in there? Anyone have any advice?

    Also looking to get loud for cheap, and sound quality isnt a huge issue here.
    I was thinking about picking up 2 of these:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=264-809
    And 2 new tweeters or something.

    Would this be too much effort for these old speakers?

    Eh...I'd just either build something completely new or buy something new. I don't think you'd be satisfied with just replacing tweeters/mids.

    What's your budget? What equipment do you have running them?

    Why replace the mids if they are still working?

    Take out the good tweeter and measure it's resistance/ohms. Find another tweeter with a similar ohm load at PE and size, Replace both tweeters together and they should be fine.

    Well I can only find one 1/2" tweeter, but its only like 3.5 RMS

    Think that would work if the towers are only 15RMS recommended?
