OK, so some of you know that I have a weakness for the Axiom made Merak MC6H center channel speaker. The MC6H has 2 x 6 1/2" drivers and a horn tweeter. So, I scored one hoping to upgrade the drivers and cross-over, hooked it up and watched the 2 6.5s puff out, heard a weird screeeeing noise followed by a puff of smoke from the horn tweeter.
I instantly recognized this all to be a bad thing, so I powered down. Took the speaker downstairs, hooked it up to another amp and the 6.5s worked but the horn tweeter was silent as death in space. So, I took the think apart and removed the cross over.
There's not much to it, just a little orange thingie marked, "TL .22K 50/100"
Is that a resistor, or what? Any thoughts about the values of whatever it is?
Thanks in advance to all the smart people.
