    So I have an old SWR Goliath Junior that the tweeter has been out on for a number of years. I don't use it much so it hasn't been an issue.

    Now I want to get the tweeter back working so I checked the light bulb fuse and it looked fine. Then I replaced the tweeter diaphragm but it's still not working.

    Any ideas as to what to do next? Should I replace the light bulb fuse even though it doesn't appear like it's blown?

    What else might I look for? A brand new tweeter?

    If the fuse is cheap, I would go ahead and replace it. Its worth a shot.

    +1. If it's not that, you may have fried the crossover.

  6. Often this variable pot on the back can burn out when the tweeter is fully dialed out and the cab is exposed to high power. You can check that with a multimeter. I think they're readily available from parts express, digikey, mouser and ebay.
