    Tweeters shut off

    ok i have SLC 230.25 NG - Rainbow SLC NG 5.25" 2-Way Components
    and the tweeters cut out when i reach a higher volume level but dont distort.

    In the manual it says this is a safety feature to protect the tweeters and it says to remove the halogen bulbs in the x-overs and replace with a silver jumper to take off the safety feature.

    I replaced both bulbs with some wire as it says in the manual and the tweeters are still going out.

    Anyone with rainbow now how to solve this problem?



    Boom!

    Replace your bulbs with a jumper and see if it works. I'm clueless.

    The OP did that and it still cuts out. now what. LOL

    I think its rediculous for a set costing 5 times as much as the RSD to cant get as loud as them. i do like the smoothness or the rainbow tweets though. i just wish those things gets loud without cutting out.

    when you find the answers to all those questions, please let me know.

    Im still going to try this SILVER wire thing just to say ive tried all the options.

    Ive already purchase a nice amp for them and they still dissapoint. after ive tried the silver wire and if they still cut out. imma throw these **** in the garbage and get some focal.

    The OP and I are friends, we did it together at his house.
    You both should contact rainbow and see if they say the same thing. There is no doubt they can get louder... they aren't even distorting when they cut out.

    Rainbow & cdt audio & a coupe of other companies do that for a tweeter protection,
    try switching out xovers to a better passive set or just go active & you want have that problem any more

    by jumper, they meant a solid metal bar the same size as the bulb.
