Community CSX57-S2 Help!
« on: February 03, 2018, 02:25:20 pm »

Hi,

I have a blown horn on one of my CSX57-S2 and I wanted to know where I can find a replacement or one that supersedes the sound quality? Im djing a 40th bday party for my wife this weekend and i would like to use these speakers.

Hi

Did you check to see if it is one of the "Power Sense" protection bulbs in the cross over?

Take the cabinet apart.

Disconnect 1 lead from the HF driver. 

Measure the resistance of the HF driver.

That is a FIRST step.  I would take the diaphragm out of the driver and look at it.

Look at the "bulbs" (they are not actually light bulbs, but rather resistors that glow like lights).

Measure the resistance across the bulbs.

Let us know what you find, and then go from there

Thank you! Both HF drivers show no resistance and all resistors read the same as pic below.

Based on that, the HF diaphragms are dead.

So take them out of the drivers and have a look.

A photo of the existing driver would be a good start.

However, you can't just "swap drivers".

Sometimes you will get lucky.  Other times, due to the differences of the impedance CURVE (not the simple number), the crossover character could be quite different.

Add that to the possibly different sensitivity and freq response, and a "better" driver might actually provide worse performance

What if I try to rewire everything with different crossover and new HF drivers?

At that point - just buy new, better speakers.
