    Well, I've been using my Mission 700's instead of my 702e's for a few weeks because I prefer the sound of the 700's.

    I switched back to the 702e's yesterday and noticed that they sounded a lot different then before. I thought that it was just me, because I was used to the 700's so didn't do anything about it. When I was listening to music yesterday night I put my head in front of the speaker and it sounded... CRAP!

    The tweeter in one of the 702e's isn't working. I tried removing the HF>LF terminal bridge and connected the speaker cable straight to the HF terminals. Nothing.

    I then connected one of the Mission 700's to the same cable, to make sure it wasn't the amp. Nope... it's definately the speaker.

    I was just wondering, what could have caused it? High volume? Loose wiring inside the speaker? AFAIK, it was fine before I switched to my 700's.

    I don't have the boxes anymore (mum made me throw them out when we were clearing out the loft) so I can't take them back to Richer Sounds where I purchased them. They've been back to Mission once to fix the baffle, but I doubt they'll take them back with a faulty tweeter. Should I take them apart and check cabling? Does anyone know where I can pick up a replacement tweeter or crossover, because I really don't know what the problem is.

    Thanks for any replies.
    Andrew.
