    First let me say i havent been on for a while so let me introduce myslef again. GREETINGS

    They are tannoy reveals to be exact , they are passive and have black woofers. any way one of the tweeters are pushed , and unfortunatly i can hear that it still works but not as loud as the other when which is not pushed in. My Q is......
    Will the tweeter sound back to normal after i get something to suction the tweeter back to its designed existence? or is there replacement tweeters for these things that i would have to order and have some pro instal for me?
    they sound good
    l only paid 75 for each.

    well, if i were you, i'd try to get them back in the original position. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to replace them. Im sure you can get them from the manufacturer....

    $ .02

    the lokely hood that they will return to normal is.... slim/none if you pull them i think you'll find they use VIFA (brand) tweeters...

    That's a good deal for $150.00 (if that one tweeter is the only issue).

    If suction won't restore it just pull that one out and order a replacement. You can do it yourself...

    Oky so what i did was try to give it a kiss right in the tweeter and it didnt turn into the prince i expected it too. so finally i got a vacuum cleaner and put the pipe right in front of it and brought the puppy right out. i still notice a bit more amplification on the right side. but hey it is very minimal and there are ways around this when it comes to the neccesary tasks of mixing and what not.
