    buzzing from tweeters

    I can't figure out why my tweeters are buzzing when there are higher frequency bass notes. They only buzz on the higher bass frequencies when the subwoofer is on. If i turn my remote gain all the way down on the sub amp, the buzzing goes away and they are crystal clear.

    Any ideas of what could be causing this? I also have a little bit of engine whine so i was wondering if my headunit could also have something to do with this buzzing issue?

    System is in sig.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: buzzing from tweeters

    nobody has any ideas?

    is there some way my bass is interfering with the tweeter? maybe the grounding issue is causing it?

    Might be a grounding issue, man, or an issue with the tweeter RCA's/RCA connections at your amp/head unit. Not too sure, though, sorry I can't be of more help.

    That's an awfully weird issue.

    Re: buzzing from tweeters

    Had a tweeter that made a bad buzzing noise and had engine noise, turned out that my rca cable going into the amp was not getting a good connection and that fixed it. that problem bugged me for awhile and had me stumped.

    Re: buzzing from tweeters

    Are you sure it's not a physical buzzing rather than an electrical problem ?


    skinnymofo ...... try moving your passive xover 6-8"

    i'm assuming by physical you mean something rattling and it definitely isnt. i tried holding things down and it got louder as i put my ear up to the tweeter.
