How to Replace Super Tweeters

As you may be aware, tweeters are an essential part of any car audio system in order to really get the most out of your music’s high frequencies. The great thing about some super tweeters, is that they are fully rebuildable. Therefore, if something happens to your super tweeter -instead of throwing away the whole thing, you can just buy a rebuild kit! This rebuild process is extremely easy, and today we are going to show you exactly how to rebuild your super tweeter, while using the Audiopipe ATR4421 heavy duty super tweeter as an example.

 

1Get Your Super Tweeter Rebuild Kit

Before you begin rebuilding your tweeter, you will need a voice coil rebuild kit – such as the Audiopipe ATV4421 tweeter rebuild kit. Once you have this replacement voice coil kit, you can start rebuilding your super tweeter!

 

2Taking Apart the Tweeter

To start, remove the three philips head screws from the top of the tweeter and the one philips head screw from the bottom of the tweeter. Once you have removed all of the screws, you can remove the phase plug off of the top of the voice coil and place it somewhere safe until it is time to put your tweeter back together.

3Replace the Voice Coil

The next step is to replace the voice coil. Simply remove the defective voice coil off the top of the magnet and replace it with the new replacement voice coil.

4Put the Super Tweeters Back Together

Once the new voice coil is in place, the next step is to place the phase plug on top of the voice coil. Once the phase plug is in place, flip over the tweeter to replace the bottom screw. This will make sure the phase plug is in place. Next, you will turn the tweeter back over, take your tweeter’s top plate, and place it on top of the tweeter. Lastly, take the three screws you removed from the top of the tweeter earlier, and put those back in the tweeter’s top plate so that the top plate is firmly secured to your new voice coil.

And that’s it! This is a incredibly easy process which will ensure that your heavy duty super tweeter lasts a long time. Until next time, we’ll cya later!
