    Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    Just payed a guy to install my new system and he also build a box for my woofers.
    I get my car back, and my speakers are really silent and some songs even play differently.
    My right speakers then start to sound like they are blown out when I raised the volume.
    But soon I realized that my speakers were not playing music, just the tweeters. I called the guy and he's gonna check this out soon, but he said that the sound is supposed to come out of the tweeters and a bass out of the speakers. I thought the high freq should come out of the tweeters.
    And I got the tweeter sounding like it was blown out, but I was going to check on a store that specifies in car audio and see what they were going to say.
    I just can't belive that my expensive speakers that have tweeters, crossovers and a amplifier sound like my ****** computer speakers.
    These are my speakers:

    The vocals/midrange and midbass should come from the 6.5 driver and high frequencies from the tweeter. If you're not hearing those 6.5s, something is wrong. What kind of HU are you running? also what amp?

    Sounds like a bad installation. I would be careful when playing or running the system so you don't damager or blow any of the speakers before you can get it fixed or checked out.



    Head Unit: Not sure yet
    Front: ID CTX-6.5CS
    Rear: ID CTX-6.5CS
    Sub: SKAR VVX 12"
    Amp: eD Nine.5

    Re: Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    So, how do I know if my right tweeter is blown out?
    In some songs they have no problem working, but in some songs it just sounds bad and makes a annoying noise.

    I'd say just be very careful with it and have someone check it out ASAP. Sounds like he did some sorry wiring.

    sounds like the guy shouldn't be installing anything.. tweeters do not play voice (not in the way most think) almost all of your vocals and midbass freq should come from your midbass driver.

    "bass": or what people commonly think as bass should come mostly through a sub-woofer.

    Re: Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    I recommend leaving the stereo shut down completely until its looked at.Use your Ipod and headphones for music until you get it checked out.Sounds like a rushed/slapp it in install,Wires loose, and prob not even on the right pole of the x-overs even,cross-over cut-out on the amp not even set properly/gains.Slamm it in install/give me your money/see ya deal rt there.Dont play your radio anymore..you have a nice set up, so dont take a chance on ruining your speakers just because you want to listen to music.Use your Ipod or?till you get it fixed.Sorry to hear about this.Why I do my own, and have for a long time due to this type of service/so called service

    Sounds to me like he may have crossed the tweeters wrong?
    Maybe plugged tweeter into midrange spot on crossover?

    Yes, I know - a stupid move!
    But I know he's not ******* with me, he's offering to take a second look..
    Thanks!

    You think so? I sure hope you're right.
    When I play this song:
    Tyler The Creator - Yonkers - YouTube
    The tweeter sounds like it's blown out, and only the right tweeter.
    But when I play this song:
    Nero - Crush On You - YouTube
    Nothing happens, it plays it good. Considering only the tweeters are working. And I didn't know that when I was playing it.
    Kinda weird?

    Re: Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    tweeters that get midrange frequencies or any bass frequencies is a bad thing easy to blow them they are only meant to handle highs....thus we are advising to not use the system unless you have double checked the wiring. something is wrong with the wiring for sure unless a speaker/tweeter is already blown. It is also possible he wired the tweets or mids to the input channel on the xovers this would explain the very low volume, in that situation signal still goes through the xover but not in the way it is meant to and the result is you still hear the music but extremely quiet and distorted.

    Re: Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    But the noise in the right tweeter has been there since I first got the car - it can't be blown can it? It was new.

    I'm sorry but the wording you used in your original post is making it hard for me to understand your issues completely....let me clarify:

    These are my speakers:
    WoofersEtc.com - CXS62 V2 - Image Dynamics 6.5" 2 Ohm Component System
    ^^ what are your speakers? both the woofers and the tweeters, or one or the other? Then you say your right speakers, again are you meaning both the woofer and the tweeter or one or the other? What do you mean you got the tweeter sounding like it is blown out, did you do something and then it sounded like that or always did. Please specify, but it sounds to me like your woofers aren't producing any sound and your tweeters are, but they sound like they are blown and have a harsh noise to them. Please let me know if my assumption is correct or not. then I can further assist you.

    Re: Sound only coming out of tweeters and possibly a blown tweeter

    I think he got his tweet and mid outputs switched on the xover. This would explain why it's quiet.



    All girls are whores, just ask your mom how you got here.
