Replacing Focal Sopra Tweeter

Modified on Fri, 01 Dec 2023 at 02:36 PM

  • Remove the two large nuts holding the tweeter faceplate to the cabinet.
  • Remove the driver immediately underneath the tweeter and set it aside.
  • Get your hand inside the cabinet and up behind the tweeter.
    Find the wires that go to the tweeter.
  • At the point where they go through the wall, you will feel a blob of putty that seals the hole, so that air pressure does not get through.
  • Remove as much of it as you can and set it aside to be reinstalled later.
  • Slide the tweeter faceplate to the Left until you can clearly see the wire connection to the rear of the tweeter.
  • Using a small flat screwdriver, loosen the set screws and release the wires.
  • Keep sliding the tweeter assembly all the way to the Left and remove it entirely from the speaker.
  • Looking at the back of the tweeter, loosen the screws located at the 2 and 8 o'clock position and remove the dead tweeter from the back of the faceplate.
  • Install the new tweeter and secure it to the faceplate.
  • Slide it in from the Left until you can reattach the leads.
  • Tighten the set screws to secure the leads.
  • Keep pushing the tweeter inwards, while pulling on the wires from the inside of the speaker, so that the wires don't snag behind the tweeter.
  • Once the tweeter is back to its central position, and the wire is tight on the back, push the putty back into place from the rear, to seal the hole.
  • Secure the faceplate to the cabinet by tightening the two large screws.
