    Question SRS tweeters turning on/off??

    I promise i haven't even had one drink yet today.. so keep that in mind when reading this. :p

    Did i read somewhere in here.. that the SRS tweeters turn on and off at certain volumes/frequencies? or did i just dream this up? I don't remember if I read this in here or not. I had the volume way down today listening to some music... and when i went up and put my ear close to the left speaker, it appeared that the upper tweeters turned off at times.. while the lower two remained on at all times. Is this correct, or do i have a tweeter(s) going out?

    Yeah, they fire like spark plugs. 1-3-4-2 as I recall.

    Yes, the four tweeters activate individually or in conjunction with each other depending on the frequency of the input signal. Don't have the info in front of me describing the exact process, but I'm sure we'll get a much better answer than mine soon! :)

    Yes, I should have said they operate as a frequency cascade/array. Take a look at the HF portion of the schematic and you'll get the idea.
