The tweeter on my right Type 1 has a broken tweeter.

The wire is broken from the voice coil to the negative post.

But I can't get continuity across the voice coil, so I'm screwed.

God knows the make and model of the tweeter. 

The plate is 4 3/8 x 3 1/2 inch.

I'm in the US, so any recommendations on a repair service?

Thanks,
Dan

Sorry but it's not possible to show attatchments here at the moment. You have to host them somewhere else.

It is possible to solder the broken wire but it's not an easy job. I heard my local Snell dealer did it once on some type A tweeters. Before you can solder it you need to remove the lacquer from a bit of the copperwire. This is done either mechanically or by burning it at a high temperature (which is almost impossible so close to the voicecoil).

Perhaps you can unwind a short piece of the wire from the voicecoil if you need more wire to work with.

I've shipped both tweeters off to Speaker Exchange in Tampa for repair/refurbishment.

I'll report back on results.

Thx

BTW, Atomic replied to me requesting the serial number so they could look it up.

Did not hear back.

Probably scratching their heads - Type 1?HuhHuh

It could be one of two kind of tweeters, either Peerless or Audax. The front plate looks like a Peerless. But don't know the model. Smiley
