Maybe simply replace rather than rebuild

I want to replace the capacitors on my Cerwin vega D5 speakers but have never done it before. I could help with parts and procedures. Thank you for your time, Rob


Well it is not an easy task to tweak crossover.If you just change capacitors,it could bring some advantages put probably will bring in the same time more unpleasant sound.If the old capacitor is MKT one then the new one should be MKT as well - if not you might get some frequences very loud and so unpleasant sound.MKP capacitoprs have very low resistance but mind the fact that the whole crossover was projected to use MKT capacitors.The same is for bas area - change electrolityc c with the same type but of good quolity - Mundorf maybe

VE-15 3-way floor standing speaker. Why does one of the midranges produce little or no sound?


Definitely the crossover. Follow the wiring back to see where it connects and see what is on the board.

Replacement woofers for Cerwin Vega HED 3way 12. Can I use woofers from the LS Series?


Absolutely, as long as they are the same impedance.
If you are unsure, use an ohmmeter to check the static impedance of the replacement speakers, and be sure that it is with in 2-3 ohms of the listed impedance of the speakers you are replacing (otherwise, your crossover points will be wrong).

Where can i find an amplifier for a cerwin vega hts 12a


Subwoofer Plate Amplifiers

What you need is a plate amplifier. You'll get more bang for the buck by using an after market one. They are simple to replace. Dayton is a popular brand. They use an active variable crossover .

I am interested in disabling my Cerwin Vega XLS-215 tweeter protection switch. I am well aware of the ramifications of this modification. Is it in the crossover circuit and if so could you tell me how to...

If you have a look at the above link, there are pictures of the crossover as well as the schematic for the crossover.
you will see in the second photo there are two yellow discs attached to the circuit board. you just need to remove these discs which are PTC Polyswitches, and replace both of these with wire links.

I own a CERWIN-VEGA V-12S 12" Front Firing V


You may have only messed up the crossover circuit. Try changing the crossover frequency and see if hte behavior changes. If so, then the parts cost should be minimal. If the behaviorr remains the same, there will need to be more investigation done internally. This is not a problem that is likely to be easily resolved remotely. Can you update this with your location? I may be able to provide a recommendation for a service shop.

No sound coming out of speakers on my cerwin vega


spurdoggg,
It will be easy to pin point the problem. If your satellite speakers have been connect through the sub's in and output speaker connectors, disconnect them and connect them directly to the source of sound. If the speakers work its the crossover inside the sub enclosure. If the speakers do not work the speakers are blown.

Cerwin Vega D9-E Speakers. Bad crossovers...I think. Fixable?


Crossovers are made with wire coils, electrolytic capacitors and resistors.
Capacitors may get leaky or blown with time and heavy use, and are quite easy to find, just be sure to use the same polarity, capacity and voltage rating and to respect the polarity if it's a polarized capacitor.
There may also be a burnt out resistor or a coil. Resistors can be obtained and replaced (same resistance and wattage) and wire coils can be rewound (same amount of wire of the same wire gauge).

Another possibility is a partially damaged wire on the speaker itself. This is the braided curl wire that goes from the speaker membrane to the cable connection lugs on the speaker armature, and it may be damaged at the membrane side or the lug side.
It usually happens from what you call "overcooking".
To repair this it will require some soldering skills, but it's a bit hard to solder that type of wire, as it tends to oxydize and is difficult to clean prior to soldering, it may be difficult to access it, depending on the speaker structure(an alternative to this is to replace the speaker itself).

There may be some physical damage to the membranes if the sound is present but is of a bad quality (a slightly damaged membrane may be repaired using some rubber glue, but it will never return the speaker to the original condition).

These are just some suggestions, hope they can help you get closer to a solution.
