    Smile RTi10 Tweeter is not Blown

    I believe I have a blown RTi10 Tweeter. While I wait to resolve this with Customer Service I'd like to swap it with the Tweeter from an RTi4 I don't use much, they look the same. My question is are they the same tweeter or am I risking blowing the RTi4 tweeter? Also could the cause of the blown tweeter be the cross-over? What a time to blow a speaker, I was just ramping up for a holiday weekend. Just curious, I have a Yamaha 2600 receiver and have never turned it up past mid scale, normally about -30 to -20 tops. I hope this is not going to be an on going problem?

    2 hours later....Go figure, I just swapped the tweeter with the RTi4, they have the same part number, and they both now work. I swapped them back and they both still work. Yikes! I spent an hour in panic trying to retrieve the high end. I think I've got gremlins.

    Polk, please accept my apology for the negative post. The RTi10ís really do rock and are worth every cent I paid.

    Polk, please accept my apology for the negative post. The RTi10’s really do rock and are worth every cent I paid.

    I think you need to turn it down or start saving for a separate amplifier.

    what do you want us to say ? you blew your tweet... git'er fixed and don't F*^k with your speakers and turn it down. Check your cables make sure they are good to go and buy yourself an amp..don't believe the rating on your receiver BTW...

    Willow, did you even read the original post?

    The first questions was:
    "I'd like to swap it with the Tweeter from an RTi4 I don't use much, they look the same. My question is, are they the same tweeter or am I risking blowing the RTi4 tweeter?"

    The second question was:
    Also could the cause of the blown tweeter be the cross-over?

    I also said It wasn't, and hasn't been played at high volume.

    The responses sounded more like Vultures attempting to pick at and beat someone down that has a blown tweeter. Thus, having no relevance to the original questions.

    And the YAMAHA RX-V2600 is very close (2-3% +/-) of rated power

    sound and vision mag bench test:

    Yamaha RX-V2600
    DOLBY DIGITAL PERFORMANCE
    All data were obtained from various test DVDs using 16-bit dithered test signals, which set limits on measured distortion and noise performance. Reference input level is –20 dBFS, and reference output is 1 watt into 8 ohms. Volume setting for reference level was –7. All level trims were at zero, except for subwoofer-related tests; all speakers were set to "large," subwoofer on. All are worst-case figures where applicable.

    Output at clipping (1 kHz into 8/4 ohms)
    1 channel driven: 196/297* W (22.9/24.7* dBW)
    5 channels driven (8 ohms): 121 W (20.8 dBW)
    6 channels driven (8 ohms): 119 W (20.8 dBW)

    Distortion at 1 watt (THD+N, 1 kHz)
    8/4 ohms: 0.02/0.03%
    Noise level (A-wtd): –75.7 dB
    Excess noise (with sine tone)
    16-bit (EN16): +0.6 dB
    Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20 kHz +0.7, –0.1 dB

    * Speaker-impedance setup switch set to 8-ohm position; 210 watts into 4 ohms with switch at 6-ohm position

    MULTICHANNEL PERFORMANCE, ANALOG INPUT
    Reference input and output level is 200 mV; volume setting for reference output level was –18.
    Distortion (THD+N, 1 kHz, 8 ohms): 0.02%
    Noise level (A-wtd): –89.9 dB
    Frequency response: <10 Hz to 200 kHz +0, –1.8 dB

    STEREO PERFORMANCE, DIGITAL INPUT
    Reference level is –20 dBFS; all level trims at zero. Volume setting for reference level was –3.
    Output at clipping (1 kHz, 8/4 ohms, both channels driven): 160/241 W (22.0/23.8 dBW)
    Distortion at reference level: 0.02%
    Linearity error (at –90 dBFS): 0 dB
    Noise level (A-wtd): –75.4 dB
    with 96-kHz/24-bit signals: –85.4 dB
    Excess noise (with/without sine tone)
    16-bit (EN16): 0.35/0.25 dB
    quasi-20-bit (EN20): 8.4/9.4 dB
    Noise modulation: 0.2 dB
    Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20 kHz +0, –0.2 dB
    with 96-kHz/24-bit signals: 20 Hz to 43.1 kHz +0, –3 dB

    * Speaker-impedance setup switch set to 8-ohm position; 197 watts into 4 ohms with switch at 6-ohm position

    I've read the Sound and Vision review. Audioholics has a one to. The RX-V2600 is a nice piece of hardware with excellent numbers and like the RTi10's an exceptional value (on sale). I'd think it would be difficult to find a comparable 7/1 preamp and separate amps of this quality for 1K, not to mention the Video section.
