Of course you should get a problem (I'm guessing here) with to much power, with that 2,2R resistor in series(?) with the woofers. How much W was that a 5W or 10W, and how much you were using from the amp? Now I'm just giving my hint, and possible you have more failed components.
You can buy new xovers, or try to repair it if you have some experience.
(If you are going to post a lot then build a new "Mission 753 xover repair" thread)

Buy the parts from Mission if you can (or another) and for more power change the (7W?) factory power resistors. (Now, the resistors might be acting as a protection, but that is another story - and is not good for the quality of sound.)

Default mission 753 crossover no high freqeuncy

hi thanks for replys so far can any one confirm that i have a crossover problem and its not down to my drivers i bought some crossovers off ebay 753 but i put them in my speakers and the the seem to have the same problem as my previous ones i just get a muffeld bass sound there seems to be hardly any mid and no top sound... when i attach just the high freqeuncy from my amp theres no sound when i attach to the low freqeuncy terminals i get a unresponsive bass ... i did a test i skipped out a section of caps and wires ..i wired direct from the high freq + direct to the red speaker out and i actually got a reasonable sound with top mid and a lively bass however not perfect by any means but acceptible .... so im not good with these xrosovers can any one help is it the crossover damaged or some thing else

hi me again found that my mission 753 tweeters are blown ..... i put some cheap rubbish replacments on just to test.... so now the crossovers are giving me the high frequency and low but the 4 drives all sound the same dull bass the mid sound voice clarity doesnt seem to be there...... does this mean the mid range part of the crossover is damaged ????

hi yes some thing i ment i have the high freq through the test tweeters and i have bass and low freq through the bottom 4 drives but the mid doesnt seem to be there .... i skipped out a part of the crossover near the bottom coil and the mid comes through so does this mean its the crossover or is there a problem with some of the drivers ? i hope this makes sence

Hi guys,

Why does it state in all the older mission model manuals to not touch the high frequency drive fixings?

I can't see what harm it would do to check they are secure and if you ever had a problem with a tweeter, you'd obviously have to remove and replace it again.

Do they say not touch them incase you over-tighten and risk damaging/cracking the fixture?


Thanks.
