    On one of my main speakers I get a sort of clicking sound, but only when there is an excessive amount of bass.
    The sound seems to come from the tweeter so I think it may be that the cross over is broken and the twetter is being sent bass fequencies it can't handle.

    Would this be a good assumption?

    If the tweeter still works, I doubt that's the problem. It would probably be destroyed very quickly.

    Are the speakers sealed or vented? If the former, my guess is an air leak somewhere. If possible, try removing the tweeter, checking any gaskets and sealing, and re-install it.

    If not, I'd be tempted to diagnose a rubbing voice coil on the bass driver. Are the speakers bi-wireable? If they are, remove the bars or your tweeter cable and run them without the tweeter. Then see what happens.
