    I think my tweeter is blown. I can seem to hear anything from it. How could I tell for sure?

    Use a ohms meter. Check the fuse it look like a auto light bulb if it has one.

    You could turn your low and mid controls all the way down and turn your highs all the way up. Then play at a low volume with your ear right up against the tweeter. That's what I would do to check it.
     
  4. I would very carefully do what kb9wyz says, but who needs tweeters anyway.

    You need to remove the horn and disconnect the wiring before testing with a multi-meter.

    If your horn tests OK, then you need to check if there is high freq protection (the fuse or lightbulb). If there is no protection, or it is OK, then you may have a bad component in your crossover/high pass filter.
