If the tweeter's voice coil is open, disconnect the crossover from the amplifier. Driving a 12dB/oct crossover with an open output can damage the amp and possibly the crossover.

I don't know anything about the tweeters beyond what I read in the docs.

I have the FNQ1401 component set back from somewhere in 2003? Anyways one of my tweeters died also. I have 1 good 1 and 1 bad one. Did you get a new set? Or do you want to work out a trade since we both have 1 good tweeter
