Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

If you are worried about the tweeter failing

Of course 4 tweeters will work fine (if wired series-parallel).

The real problem is the tweeter isn't going to have a longevity issue unless you are clipping your amp a lot; in that case 4 tweeters might all fail at once.

The simple solution is to install a fuse to protect the tweeter or get a more powerful amp.

Note: tube amps are less likely to damage tweeters when overloaded as they make less higher ordered harmonics than transistors do when overloaded.
