No high end. Did I blow my tweeter or my crossover?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by brian v2.0, Jul 18, 2012.


  1. I have a Schroeder Mini 12+ that I just replaced the 12 inch speaker in. I have played a couple of gigs with it and it sounded fine, but tonight I took it out tonight to an open jam night that I co-host and noticed that I have no highs whatsoever. I usually play with a good bit of treble and do a fair amount of slap. Needless to say, without any highs I was a bit lost.

    I started smelling a funny smell at one point so I decided it was time to call it a night. When I got home I plugged the same bass into the same amp but with my 2x12 cab instead and it sounded fine.

    How do I tell if I blew the tweeter or the crossover?

    Thanks in advance!

    What exactly did you replace the original spkr with?
     
  3. I called Jorg Schroeder and he sent me a new B and C Neo.

    Possibilities are filter, l-pad and tweeter. The tweeter itself is most often the culprit.

    Take it out of the cab. You can check it's resistance with a meter. You can battery test it IF you rig up some wires and use a little AAA. 1.5 volt. 9 volt is enough to fry it if it's not already. You can also take it off the horn and take the driver apart and look at/smell the diaphram (coil).

    You can often times get replacement diaphrams for much less than a whole new tweeter.

    Sniff the l-pad too. Checking it with a meter, it should read something close to 8ohms throughout most of it's dial range.

    None of this applies if it's a peizo.
