Quick intro: I've never owned a home stereo (for a car: yes) and always wanted one. Didn't want to get into it until I had the money to buy something nice. My friend has owned SDA-1C's since new, and I've always drooled over them. I spent quite a bit of time trying to find the same, and never had the luck. So I just picked up a pair of SDA-II's in 'narual oak' with original cable, manual and boxes (they're beautiful! and sound great). I came home, hooked them up to my CD player (via NAD AV receiver T474 using pre-amp out to an NAD C272 amp, with 150W/C). When I bought the speakers all the drivers seemed operational. When I blasted the speakers at maybe 75 Watts on the first day, two SL2000 tweeters went out - the main tweeter off one speaker and it's brother in the other speaker (via SDA cable). Checked resistance and there is no reading in either tweeter. I'm no genius but figure I blew them...lol....but I'm smart enough to go and join this site immediately, so I can pick your brains, fix the speakers and turn them into a show-piece.
What did I do wrong? It's all mechanical and electrical, so, unless the tweeters erode over time, this should not have been an issue.
Could the power interruptor (or whatever you call it) be bad, and should I just replace it with a fuse?
...I hope this site works....I could really use the help.....Thanks
