    Focal Utopia 165w Tweeter Blown?!

    Hey guys

    I was driving home tonight listening to Akon at volume 15 (23-25 is where my gain is set), front speakers are crossed at 63 (I know, that is probably too low :\..) and I heard some loud noise comin from left side, and I balanced from left to right, and right to left and noticed that no sound is coming out of left tweeter. It was raining outside so I couldn't check the amp if maybe the wire came out...

    Do you guys think my tweeter is blown ? and if so, where can I get focal utopia 165w replacement tweeter?

    You can find the TN-51 tweeter for sale on Ebay sometimes..

    It is not cheap tho..

    I would still wait and see if a wire came loose first..

    you can go to the Focal website and order off a new tweeter. They sell seperates, but if you are going to buy new tweeter, you might think of saving up and buying a set of the Audiom tweets, or better yet, upgrade to the new Be (Beryllium) tweeters! They will make your Utopias come alive!

    hmm some people told me to try a 9v battery test on the terminals, but im thinking that wouldnt work if the wire came loose between the tweeter and wire that goes to the xover... i guess imma have to take my door apart to see

    OnYrMrk: can you please give me more information on those tweeters and their prices?
