    Thumbs down sda dimensional tweeter not working

    I have a pair of sda II's I made new cabinets as the old ones were trashed. I think I messed up the wiring when I re-installed everything. The tweeter on the left side dimensional array is not working but the 6.5" driver is. I tested the tweeter and it is good. I think that it is not getting any signal. Does the signal for this driver come from the right speaker via the interface cable? If it does why is the dimensional (woofer) still operate? All I need is a wiring diagram that shows the wire colors and where they go. The lesson learned is Capitan Morgan and wiring don't go together.:D

    Way too much potential troubleshooting for someone to give you a list of symptoms and cures. Keep on trucking.

    Some do have colors, others don't.

    Stop complaing, get back to work, and switch to Appleton rum.

    not whining much...am starting with the fuses as they look original after that it's on to the right speaker me thinks the problem lies there as the wiring on the left side looks good.

    can't find pic's but they look just like the originals but they are a bit bigger about an inch in each dim.(to keep the volume the same) as I used 1.5" mdf veneered .0625 walnut burl. the things weigh in at 95 lbs. ea. I worked at a veneer plant that had a 5 axis overhead router which I ran so reverse engineering and manufacturing was no problem. and the cost was nill as I was able to use all scrap. oh! the faces are laminated with a flat black Formica type product. was able to save the silk screening on the backs by using a 50" drum sander and sanding away the original wood till I was left with a thin layer with the printing on it. laminated that to the mdf. with the xtra mass and stiffness the bass and lower mids are much tighter. what some do with new caps i did with a new cabinet.
