    today I lifted up my cab and there was a rattle. inside a black spool of green wire had broken off of the inside of where the speakon connections are. I also sent Epifani an email but I thought maybe someone might be able to help me out, tell if its a DIY?
    Thanks!

    No replies? You crossover fell apart! Probably not a DIY fix without a replacement crossover. The cab probably works, but the horn/tweeter probably does not.

    I just checked the horn/tweeter and it works fine.
    any other thought on what this could be?

    It's the inductor for the high pass filter to the tweeter. If you can solder it's a very easy repair as long as the inductor isn't damaged.

    As you found out, the tweeter will still work, but don't be surprised if you blow it if left as-is. What is supposed to be a 3rd order filter is now a 1st order one, not ideal.
