Crossovers are set to low, their slope is too low, or they are being overpowered.
If you playing them that loud you may be over powering them. How are you setting the gains? Tweeters don't need to be ran to their rated power to get loud and it's absolutely unnecessary to run them on rated power.can nearly make your ears bleed without breaking a sweat
This would be my guess that this is clippingToo much power, too low HP filter or too shallow slope, Cliping
If you have checked gains and settings and all in fact are correct for the system, I assume you have to start looking at some equipment issue. May also want to list how the specifics on how you are setting up the system. It could also be a user issue. Back and the day, I knew guys that constantly blew stuff up because they never backed off the volume knob even if you could hear things screaming not in a good wayGains are all set properly, crossover points were all set at or above what the included crossovers had that came with the speakers or what the manufacturer recommended. I know I haven’t been working as an installer since 09, but for the 12 years I did spend doing it every day, plus the other 20 years that I have done it as a hobby and side gig, I never claimed to be or even tried to be one of the fastest guys in the bay, but there might have been one quarter that I didn’t have the lowest rate of service jobs come back, usually by a significant amount. I’ve installed well over 1000 amps, a similar number of speakers and everything else that goes with them… The gains, crossovers, settings etc were the first things that I rechecked after the first speakers died, and they have been rechecked, set, lowered…. I still to this day have to have the “gain controls are not volume or power level adjusters” conversation with people all the time. One buddy always wants his stuff set up so it’s loud, like maxed out at volume 15 out of 30 or 40. For 10 years and at least 6 big systems they have been that way. One tweeter and one old worn out 13w7 is all he has killed and he is all rap all loud all the time. If it was gains or clipping I wouldn’t be here asking for ideas.
This will take out midbass drivers like nothing.What kind of car is this. I had blown a couple of subs in my Honda due to the speed sensing volume compensation, which turns up the volume while the car is in motion. Even with the gains set properly you could still blow things due to clipping. I didn't even know it was a think until it was too late.... twice. Just a thought...
especially since they're running capacitors.regardless of how well you think you installed these tweeters, and set the gains and crossovers, they are blowing for 1 reason, too much heat on the voice coil. Raise the XO point, increase the slope, and turn the gain down.
The crescendo is rated 100-200w @4ohm depending on the amp channel used (dirty korean power). Those things put out more than rated power. Then you set gains just below clipping. Tweeters don't need that much power. The Hertz is rated 90RMS, the others probly way less. Audio control 125w and if you set gains the same way... you over powered them.One at a time, volume 3 to 4 notches below max, starting at minimum go up to any sign it’s close to clip/distortion, then I back off quite a bit. I always run gains low, like normally it’s hard to find any track that can’t be played all day at max the volume setting.
Imagine how much treble energy would be blasting (compared to remaining freq spectrum) before they blew if your scenario was correct.The crescendo is rated 100-200w @4ohm depending on the amp channel used (dirty korean power). Those things put out more than rated power. Then you set gains just below clipping. Tweeters don't need that much power. The Hertz is rated 90RMS, the others probly way less.
