Help! Damaged Driver?????

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys

 

I had a search on your forums but couldn't find what I was looking so I joined up to make this thread.

 

I have re cabled a pair of Audio technica ATH-AD700x headphones. All worked fine for a day then the left channel started cutting in and out, now its gone.

 

There seems to be a intermittent short between the left channel and ground. I cant find it. I just wanted to check that I haven't damaged the driver. When the driver is completely de soldered from everything I get about ~35 ohms. I assume that means the driver is fine?

 

As soon as I solder it up to the wire I get 0.000 ohms (i.e. short?). So I assume the short is in the wire somewhere?

 

This is the left speaker with original wiring

This is the finish product. Pitty I had to take it apart again soon after

Well I'll answer my own question

 

The speaker was fine. The fault was a internal split half way along the cable somewhere. Never had that issue on brand new cable before. Jaycar replaced it and all is now well
