Hello new to the forum. Got burdened with a pair of Wilson Watt 2 Audio Puppies/ Watt 3 Tiny Tots
Fired them up for the first time today. One Tiny Tot works fine, the other one seems to have a dead tweeter.

Took the tweeter out, did not unsolder the internal wires, and measured across the terminals (with the internal wires still attached) 24.4 Ohm. Is this meaningful, or am I just measuring something in the dividing network?

Thanks

Hi Carsten,
You are indeed measuring the crossover network. Please unsolder it to see if it's burnt. It can be damaged either by coil burning and being open circuit, or burnt and shorted. You should expect a few ohms of resistance if its okay.

Hi Carsten,
Please excuse me as I have just joined,I may be able to get a WATT 3 tweeter as a local dealer has a single WATT speaker with both woofer and tweeter.I am in the UK.Would this be of interest? Kind regards, Steven

Hello thanks for the replies. Unsoldered both tweeters, the good one measures 6.8 Ohms the bad one has no continuity.

Anyone repair these speakers?

Sorry located in the US, shipping would be prohibitive.

Hi there, Yes you will need to get that tweet repaired--should'nt be too hard ,its a Focal model but that one you have will /(should unless replaced earlier)have the Factory clear tube shot filled extension from the magnet.The basic Focal would not have that .

Good luck pick your poison from the list below --or why not contact Wilson direct--they may be able to advise /Help Supply /etc.

Good luck, and let us know how it went. When you will be preparing the tweeter for shipping remember to protect the diaphragm from being pushed on. Spacers are a good idea :)

Thanks a bunch for the referrals. Contacted Wilson, that tweeter is no longer available, they want to upgrade me to a pair of Titanium Dome tweeters : (

I'm curious how much did they quote you for the titanium tweeter? I have WP3/2s and the tweeters were changed by the local dealer to those similar to the WP7 when the originals broke down i presume. They're not so bad.

I think the coils are just Focus standard coils, the diaphragm is custom.
His first guess was that the lead broke.
