Blew a tweeter in my Tyler D1’s today. No problem, luckily I had a ‘brand new, never used before, still in the box’ spare for just this type of situation. Put the spare in and the same issue persists, lots of distortion. Quickly concluded the tweeters were fine and it must be something else. Eliminated the monitoring DAC, cables or amps as being the issue. OK, so it’s some weird thing with the crossover. Either a bad resistor, capacitor or connection somewhere. Call Tyler of Tyler Acoustics, remove the bottom woofer, insulation and start messing around with bypassing the few components in there that are connected to the tweeter. No luck. Finally (several hours later) at a total loss, I decide to desolder the tweeter from the fully working speaker and solder it to the other and wouldn’t you know, all is fine!
So as it turns out my spare tweeter (which was still new in the box) had the same exact distortion issue as the tweeter I blew! Frustrating day to say the least! Tyler is going to be sending me out a replacement tweeter on Monday via overnight shipping, which I’ll obviously foot the bill for.
Any of you guys ever have one of those days when it comes to equipment?
