Default How to get the high compression driver out of a Renkus Heinz CT8-DF

Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong category. I have some older Renkus Heinz speakers, CT8-DF and two of them need to be repaired. I can't seem to figure out how to disassemble the cabinet. I have searched for schematics of this cabinet but can't seem to find anything helpful.

The other issue is the replacement part itself. I am told it is the high frequency driver and you can tell some distortion at volume which seems to support this.

Thanks for helping a new guy out!

I have no experience with this series, but one place to start would be with R-H themselves. Here is their support page.

Renkus-Heinz Inc. - Pro Audio


The worst that could happen is they ignore you, but it costs nothing to ask for help, and they might tell you exactly what you need.

Default Called RH

I called the folks over at Renkus Heinz and they guided me through removing the horn assembly. Also, they hooked me up with the replacement part and told me where to get it. So that is pretty cool.

If anyone cares to know:
cd3302-8a (just the diaphragm)
cdt-2 (the entire assembly)
