Question is: usually when tweeters fail they stop working, so why does mine still hiss at high frequencies (as it should) but give off a distorted sound instead if working as it should? I'm trying to avoid taking it to a repairer as if it's the tweeter I can replace it relatively cheap.
In the crossover is a festoon lamp used as a fuse, it is possible that the filament in the festoon bulb has a broken but still makes contact.
Any vibration however will cause it to tingle the broken ends together
so change out the bulb first.
Then if that don't cure it we are looking at obtaining a new diaphragm
for the tweeter.
If you are thinking that the crossover it's self or Lpad is involved then get an 8uf 250 volt film capacitor in series with the tweeter voice coil
to form a simple Ist order crossover and bypass the Eden unit.
This is for a low level test only as the crossover frequency will be a bit lower than the Eden unit and there will be no protection or attenuation of the tweeter.
