    Default RT5 - No sound from tweeter? Help

    Hi -
    I have a pair of Polk RT5's. There is no sound coming from one of the tweeters. I swapped the R and L speaker so I know the problem is with the speaker not the receiver. I'd like to buy a replacement part from Polk to repair the speaker to keep the cost down. But I don't know what the problem is. Do I replace just the tweeter, or the driver or the crossover?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Bill

    Swap the good tweeter. If it still doesn't work it's probably the crossover. Check the wires while you're inside though. That may be the problem

    Default Magnet fell off!

    I took apart the box and found that the magnet on the back of the tweeter had sepearated from the tweeter and attached it self to the magnet of the woofer.

    I reached in, removed grabbed the tweeter magnet, and attached it to the back of the tweeter. It seems to me putting out sound now, but I wonder if it's been damaged and I should buy a new one?

    Also, do you think that the fact that the magnet attached itself to the magnet of the woofer, that the woofer may now be damaged?

    Thanks for your help!

    Default One more thing....

    The wife reminded me of an "incident" her cat had with this speaker. The cat didn't like to spot on the shelf that I had placed it, and she knocked the speaker to the floor from 4 feet high. I think that the impact must have been enough to dislodge the tweeter magnet.

    Thanks again for your advice!
