View Full Version : Souther fried DAYTON RS28AS-4
While playing around with crossovers the other night, I inadvertently hooked up the low freq signal to my DAYTON RS28AS-4 tweeter on one speaker....I don't think it did any damage but was curious how long it would take to smoke one of these?

Over the years, I've hooked up many-a-tweeter to the woofer output. As long as you catch it before you really crank up the speaker, it's usually not a problem. Especially with standard music content, even the wimpiest tweeter can handle a few watts full range for at least a little while.
The RS28?... You could probably watch half a movie with it hooked up wrong in your home theater system before it blew!
Hehe, OK, that's a bit of an overexaggeration, but you shouldn't have any problems.
Have a good weekend,
