Old Audioengine A5 massive pops, crackle - Page 4

You can get passives from Parts Express. Have him check what the cut-offs are on the A5 (and also the impedance of each driver), then buy one with the high pass at the same frequency or slightly higher, for drivers with the same impedance.

Oh! Good call! I’d forgotten about them. And $25 isn’t too bad.

 

Still, I probably won’t, unless hacking up the board doesn’t work. If these were ever gonna be top-notch speakers, or if my application were critical, I’d probably put in the $ and effort to make them shine. (I’d go whole hog if they were Mackie HR824’s for example.) Ditto to get them back to active, with a direct iThing input, handy volume knob, etc.

 

But they aren’t. And I don’t need much more than what they were designed to be, which is a pretty good to good set of working desktops, cheap and easy as possible.

 

Speakers are 8ohm, probably crossed over at 3500 or so, but that's just a guess.
