Hello to all,
This is my first time in here but I could use some advice here. While setting up my new television to my existing home audio system I just happened to take the front screens off of my front RM-800 tower speakers and got a surprise. The tweeters are not working and after looking a little closer it looks as though they have gotten really hot around the perimiter of the cone and were literally burned. The two 5 inch on each speaker work fine. Now I know nothing about speaker inner workings but it seems to me like this is an electrical surge problem. I have the whole system set up through an APC surge protector. My question is , should I bother trying to replace the blown tweeters or do you guys think that it is something within the speaker that is just going to do the same thing to the new ones. These towers are paired with a very nice Polk powered sub, (can't remember the model and it is not very easy to get to the back), a CS-1 center, and R-15 bookshelves at the rear. Mid to high range Onkyo tuner (SR-703).The towers are by far the oldest part of the setup. Any thoughts on new towers or fronts?
