Hey guys, not sure if I'm posting in the correct section so feel free to move this thread.

I have the floor standing SP-FS52 speakers. Each speaker has three 5.25" woofers and an 1" tweeter.Currently, two of the bottom woofers(Bass) and the tweeter have no sound coming out of them. The top woofer(Mid) is working fine. I was powering these with an Onkyo receiver rated at 115 watt each channel while this pair is rated at 130 watt each. I was pushing quite hard when the bottom two woofers and the tweeter gave out at the same time. Do you think my problem are blown voice coils? Or perhaps fried crossover? Is it even worth trying to repair? I'm disappointed as these speakers are less than 3 months old but blame myself for pushing them too hard.

Update 9/9/13 in post #8:

Seems like it was just the tweeter blown.

Something important I forgot to mention is that both speakers are crippled in the same way, at the same times.

Why not try to get them replaced under warranty?

Sounds like your receiver was clipping (distortion) and fried the speakers. You had the volume up too high.

You do have a warranty, might as well try to use it.

You could pull out the crossover and look for fried electronics...

Why go out to a movie theater?

Update

Hey guys, upon further investigation, all the woofers are working. The only part that does not work is the tweeter. I removed all the speakers and tested it with an ohm meter. All passed except the tweeters of my pair. Seems as like I will replace the tweeters.

Here is my new question now. I know the physical specs of the tweeter(1 inch Soft Dome Tweeter, with 4 inch Diamter) The speakers are rated at 6ohms. Does that mean I need to buy a replacement that is 6ohms or can I buy a tweeter that is 8ohms? How much RMS/Peak watt should I buy? I couldn't find a model number anywhere on the tweeter itself. I tried googling a direct replacement from Pioneer but came up negative.

I set the tone of my receiver to the brightest treble settings as I love my highs. To avoid another blown tweeter, will buying a stronger wattage tweeter affect how the set sounds?

Thanks for your guys reply. It is much appreciated.

See what Pioneer will sell you as replacements.

Tweeters aren't generic.

Dance party?

Visiting firemen?

Oh, treble control maxed out.

These may not be the speakers for you.

These may be a better choice:

Those look mighty nice, but way out of my budget! Thanks for the advice though.

Since they're only 3 months old, you should definitely have a warranty from the manufacturer. But to me it sounds like you have blown the speaker drivers. Check the speakers specs, make sure you know and understand what is a tolerable rate at which to keep your speakers in good shape. Try to stay below the Peak Wattage so your speakers can maintain a good shelf life. 130 watt speaker set is ok to have higher than the wattage on your other devices before the speakers, it will allow your speakers to have some buffer room so you do not blow them.

Do you think Pioneer will replace them even though it was my fault of "abusing" them?
