Guest redsfan Posted March 14, 2007 Report Share Posted March 14, 2007 Hi,I have a pair of Advent Model 5002 speakers that I bought new a long time ago. They have the walnut veneer cabinet with rounded edges and 10" woofers with the metal basket. They have black domed oil-filled tweeters. They are serial number AE0 16496. They have been sitting idle in the basement for the last 10 years or so. After bumping into this forum, I decided to get them out and see what shape they were in. Of course the foam surrounds were rotted, so I replaced them last week. After that repair was complete, I gave them a test drive and found out that one of the tweeters is not working. I moved the tweeter that was not working to the other cabinet (the one with the working tweeter) and it did not work in there either. I measured the resistance of both tweeter coils, the working one measured about 5 ohms, the one that did not work is "open".I would like to get these working again. As I said, I am the original owner and I have treated them well. I think they have a lot of miles left on them.So I think I have a bad tweeter. Where can I get a replacement unit? I would like your thoughts on repairing these and recommendations on reputable Advent parts Suppliers, someone with whom you have had a good experience.Thanks for your help,Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
