I Received the SP-BS21-LR last night.
Has anyone had an issue with a tweeter in these??
I am using them for my fronts powered by a Denon AVR 590.
I ran Audyssey and then sampled some music and watched The Bourne Identity.
Around the middle of the movie I blew the tweeter. Prior to that they sounded great.
I had them at about medium volume? (-17 I don't have the best hearing) and never "cranked"? them but didn't break them in either..
I'm wondering if you guys think I overpowered them,or do you think I got a defective tweeter?
Here's the Audyssey settings for just the fronts..
Distance: L+R 9.5ft
Channel Level: Front L +1.5db Front R +0.5db
Crossover Freq: 80Hz
The room is a 15x14x8 bedroom
TIA for any help...
I exchanged these a few days ago, No easy task since they were a X-Mass gift and I had no receipt,but so far so good...
I went easy on them the first few hours just to break then a bit (mostly out of paranoia LOL) Last night I watched the movie Salt at "fairly" high volume (-15) and I've gotta say they sound great especially for having small 4in woofers.
Honestly they blow away my previous budget Pioneer front speakers (S-HF31) with 6.5 woofers in every way. Bass,treble,clarity,etc.
I'm going to start saving for the matching center. my current S-HF center ain't cutting it LOL
Now I have a question...
Audyssey Multi EQ keeps setting the crossovers for these at 80Hz.
This doesn't seem right to me for a speaker with 4in woofers.
I bumped it up to 100Hz just to be safe. Is this a good idea?
