    Tweeters are irritating

    hello, i hope someone can help me. I have the Polk SR6500 series speakers and im havomg some problems with them.

    the first is that the tweeters seem to have an irritating "S" sound to them when their are any vocals and it is bothering me so much.

    also I keep hearing distortion come out of the passenger side tweeter but it is very faint. It is more of a crackle from tje tweets. i have the speaker cable passed on the same side as my power cable for now and im hoping that will solve my distortion issue.

    i would like to add that my old infinity tweeters distorted/crackled also.

    any help?? thanks to anyone who can help

    What is your complete set up? Doesn't sound like a tweeter issue.

    Re: Tweeters are irritating

    my setup is.
    Clarion cz702
    Polk Audio sr6500 speakers
    RF p450.4 4 channel
    RF p600.1bd monoblock
    skar audio vvx12v2

    i have already tried other amps for my speakers and its the same.

    when turning up the volume on my headunit i hear ticks or clicks every step i go up or down. i think i should get my headunit warrantied maybe...

    Re: Tweeters are irritating

    the tweeters are not aluminum im not actually sure what they are.

    my gains are actually too low. anyways this weekend im going to put my speaker wire on opposite side of the power and see if that fixes it. along with some eq tuning and phase configurations. ill see if that works

    Re: Tweeters are irritating

    you mentioned your wiring. try a simple test to rule out wiring causing the issue. If you can remove the tweeter. wire it directly to the amp with a short piece of speaker wire. See if the crackling noise is still there . If it's gone your wiring is the culprit. you probably have a short somewhere.
