Greetings all, newbie poster here. I was directed to this fine site by Robert Hamel.... thanks!
I have a new pair of JBL L96s and one tweeter is blown, measuring "open" resistance. I'm trying to find a replacement tweeter. But first, I am not sure the one good tweeter is really all THAT good?
Comparing these to my AR90s they seem to have no sparkle or zing... but if I put my ear right up there, they're just sizzling away (at least on the one side) but I want more projection and fire from the tweeters. The bass and mids are powerfully strong on these, is it possible my remaining good tweeter is ill? Should I hear high end as strong as everything else? Even with the pot all the way up and the treble boosted on my amp they're nowhere near as sparkly as my big ARs set flat. But the one tweeter *is* working. Just maybe not as much as I think it should??
Like I said this is my first pair of JBLs. I hope this isn't too Noobie of a question? I just can't imagine adding a good tweeter with this low level of output to the other box would make that big of an auditory difference.
Thanks again! -Bob
