Speaker tweeter upgrade link.

Hi all,

Link.

https://www.powersoundaudio.com/coll...weeter-upgrade

I know it says you need wire cutter/wire strippers and a 10mm wrench but I am going to include all of that with each order.

The swap is pretty each and I will post a quick point by point in this thread soon.

Also, please be aware any order can take 2-3 business days to ship as I'm giving all back order fulfillment 100% focus right now.

If that isn't great customer service, I don't know what is.

I will never stray from this company. I'm actually ashamed to have purchased my first PSA sub used from a previous owner, rather than direct from Tom himself. Though if I hadn't, I never would have known the quality of the product.

Hey Tom,

I love my speakers!! Thank you!!! I bought my MTM 210tTs and 210c in October 2019. Is this tweeter an upgrade that I have or is it improved?

I apologize. I haven't really been on AVS in the last 8 months.

Love your products and I will recommend them to anyone looking for a serious speaker for home theater!!

OK, I have to admit I have not been very active on AVS for the last couple years but I have 3 MT110's with also a PSA Sub , can you please Tom tell us the difference between the old and this upgraded tweeters , My Mt's are a couple years old , from the period when they used to come without the rounded edges but new Grills, around 2015-2016 I think.

Thanks.

I’ve got three arriving Thursday! One will be going in an original square edge 210C, so I’m curious how much a difference I’ll notice in the center channel.

Subs: PSA S1812 x2; MA’s: Crowson x2

Yes @Sekosche , please do tell. I upgraded my XV15SEs with the amp upgrade, so I might as well spend stimulus $ back to PSA for the tweeter upgrade....

Hi guys,

I will verify the exact changeover today. I know it was either june or july 2019.

It measures better, much smoother. But the bar is set high with the original so I wouldn't expect anything dramatic. See attached. (purple new, green old). This is just on the bench, not in the enclosure or with any crossover network.

I might be able to get a few pictures of the process over the weekend. Cliff note version(ANY questions be sure to email me before ripping things apart..

* Remove 10 inch woofer

* Reach thru that hole with the 10mm wrench and remove the two bolts holding the old tweeter to the horn. Be CAREFUL not to let the tweeter fall onto the crossover.

* Disconnect the wires on the tweeter and remove it thru the woofer hole.

* loosen and remove the 4 screws holding the horn to the cabinet. Remove Horn.

* Use the supplied studs/washers/nuts to secure the new tweeter to the horn.

* slide the horn back into position and secure to the cabinet. (the new tweeter fits thru the horn baffle cutout)

* Cut the two terminal off the tweeter leads and strip about 1/2 inch using the included cutter/striper

* connect those to the new tweeter observing original and correct polarity

* Reinstall 10 inch woofer observing correct polarity(if you disconnected the leads).


I THINK that's it...but that just off the cuff and I haven't had my 2 shots of 5 hour energy yet..

You are going to need a 11mm wrench for the old tweeter bolts.

And thats what I get for not double checking, ouch. Been a while since we used those old ones in production.

Also, IF you have a "feel" for working with this stuff a quality box end 7/16th is fine. But you have to be sure there's not so much wiggle-room that you could possible round the bolt edge. So if you have an inexpensive 7/16th and/or don't have much experience using SAE on metric or vise versa...don't take any chances. Just email me and I can have a 11mm on the way on Monday.

You definitely want an 11mm wrench for the old bolts, luckily I’m only a couple miles from O’reilly auto parts, because I hoped an 11mm low profile socket would work but once I opened her up I saw why a wrench is necessary in such a low clearance area. I tried a crescent wrench at first but wow is the CD magnet powerful, so made it too difficult without a proper tool for the job.

Those magnets do make it a bit of a challenge! Also if your missing some of your screws they are the first place to check!!
