Hi All,

My friend bought some B&O speaker at a thrift store and he played them for me and they didn't sound right. He was pretty bummed, so I told him I would try to help him. I opened both up and they both had the same burnt resistor.
The only thing is I don't know what kind it is to order a new one, could someone help me decipher what value it is so I can order a new one? Thanks!!

I checked the drivers by ear, but that was the extent of it. The midrange and the tweeter are enclosed in a plastic case that is not easy to access. If it does not work, then my friend learned a lesson on buying speakers without listening to them. He wanted the speakers to match his Beomaster system.

This resistor is probably just in series with the driver(s), for level matching.
If you short out the two ends (where the resistor was), you should be able
to get sound out of the driver(s), although they will then be too loud to properly match
the woofer (and the crossover point will shift). Just a little volume, don't need to blast it.

There's also the possibility that the resistors are still functional, and the drivers are blown.
