  • Canton Ergo 90 Need Help!

    I have a pair of Canton Ergo 90 towere speakers and need some help. http://www.hifi-wiki.de/index.php/Canton_Ergo_90

    Both midrange drivers are dead, but all other drivers play fine.

    Is there a way to fix the midrange drivers as they are no longer available?

    Or do I just try to match a driver up to them?

    OD is 6"
    Cutout is 5.25"
    No idea of impedance

    Overall speaker is 88.3 dB efficient

      Another option for repair is these guys if PE can't help:

      www.speakerrepair.com

      They can do repairs and offer parts. It can seem expensive, but in these situations the original drivers are the only ones that will work with the stock XO. Good luck!

        I just sent them an email. They don't appear to work on Canton drivers.

          If you can't possibly get them fixed these seem similar, cosmetically and technologically.

            Have you verified that the drivers are actually dead or are they just not making any sound when assembled in a complete speaker? There's other things that can go wrong when a complete speaker is hooked to an amp that that can cause a driver to not function properly.
            Thanks,
            Aaron

              They are dead. I can hook up other speakers and they work. Also, no impedance reading.

                It does not seem like I can get these repaired. Should I assume that since this is a 4 ohm speaker that the mids would be 4 ohm? Any suggetions to replace?
                I have been watching eBay on the chance that the mids come up for sale.

                Is there any way to repair these? they seem to move freely, could it be a broken lead in the voicecoil?

                Thanks
