Default Peavey Tweeter Resistor

am running 300W Peavey Eurosys 3 speakers from a EP2500 - Trying to use cunning and skill not to over-juice the speakers. (i'm saving to get a better speaker setup)

Unfortunately when I wasn't looking one of the guys upped the power and blew the woofer in one speaker and fried the Tweeter on the other.

I can replace the woofer with an eminence alpha 15".

The problem lies with the tweeter, it is a dual tweeter and has a resistor attached to one of the connectors. I have tested the actual tweeters & they're giving me sound..i.e it appears the resistor has fried.

What resistor though? I haven't got a clue to what to ask for when replacing it - I have attached it to see if someone can help.

Talking Result

Managed to stump everyone methinks. I ended up going to Peavey who confirmed:

70250001 - RESISTOR 50 ohm 5 WATT
70777169 - HORN 1177A (has resistor fitted)

This helps me big time - hope someone finds this useful.

Peavey CS is great.
Are you sure an Alpha 15 is a suitable replacement? Did Peavey tell you that or are you just throwing an available driver into the box?

Can't thank you enough... I'm rebuilding an old pair of Peavey 115H PA Loudspeakers, and could not find the value of these resistors after days of looking. Great info!

His lesson was the one to learn, contact Peavey and ask them when you need to know something abo0ut their products.
