    Speaker repair help

    The main drivers normally only go if overdriven, the voicecoil gets overheated and burns the lacquer coating on the copperwire coil causing it to short circuit or in some cases just stick around the magnet stopping movement of the cone. another cause is a faulty amp output where the output transistor goes DC causing coil problems as already described, the transistors overheating normally cause this, most modern amps are fan assisted cooling now anyway and most use Mosfets which run at a higher temperature without problems.

    Speaker repair help

    Ohms dear boy, but I know what you mean, Adding a series resistor greatly improves most uses of piezoelectric tweeters usually about 47 ohms with a 10/25 watt rating, don't worry that you have a higher powered amp as the bass & midrange speakers take the brunt of the power so a 10/25 watt resistor is fine in series with the piezos.

    Edy, were you there that night Baileys got shut down about 2.30 in morning, all kicked out onto the streets ? Remember Necko, Pearsy, Crabby, Willie and myself been there, I think you was, but memory fading now.

    Ortofon problem

    Only thing I can think of now is the headshell connections, sometimes need cleaning and make sure tightened fully up with the collar, bit of a coincidence for them both to be effected though, double check any earthing connections.

    Speaker Cable - Recommendations Please

    It's worth checking the cable inside your speakers, I bought some Shark cable for my runs from amp to speakers and when I researched a little deeper into pros & cons for changing cable I came across an article that pointed out " if the cable inside your cabinets is of poor quality you can have the very best cable on the outside and it will not make much difference" I changed my cable inside the cabinets & yes you do notice a difference.

    R.I.P. Melv Kaye

    R.I.P. Speedy, was a great friend and fellow DJ, worked with him at several places, had a great knowledge of soul music, we would prop the bar up talking for hours about this great music we follow and love, a very big loss to us all.
