    I have an SWR Goliath Sr i bought used.
    This is just out of curiosity.
    Theres a big old knob on the back of it to adjust the tweeder, though when i sit there thumbing away a toying with it i don't hear a difference in the sound.
    Is something wrong or should i not hear a huge difference between 0 and all the way up and down. Seems to me if it was working i would.
    Kinda new to this option.

    any ideas?
    sorry for the stupid question:meh:
  2. open it up and "continuity check" the tweeter.

    Maybe try pumping a CD through the amp and check. Something with high-end.
  3. im having a similar problem with my GK 115sbx...
  4. Hi.

    With SWR, if You don't hear a high pitch hiss that drives you partly insane or at least annoys the crap out of you, the tweeter isn't on/working IME.

    I'm not a tweeter kinda person, now who would've guessed that ;)

    i can't tell you what you should hear from your cab.

    But the sound in my svt610 changes alot depending on the horn setting.

    It's job is to put out those high freq's, you should hear them, that's for shure!

    well i suppose i'll just open it up and check.
    cause really there is no difference that i notice anyway, if it's all the way up or all the way down.

    so here's hoping i can put it back together after words :eyebrow:
