Need help

I think I have these in my speakers but I'm not sure. My speakers uses a breaker and for the tweeter it uses a 1.5uf,100v Capacitor and a 3.9uf,100v capacitor for the midrange. But I have two questions1. What do speaker circuit breakers do?2. If I'm using a tweeter with 50 RMS and max of 75, can I just use the breaker with a 1.5uf cap?
Asked by: nexes
It's very hard to see in the picture. A circuit breaker effectively protects the tweeter but a tweeter with a 1.5 uF cap is crossed above 10kHz and we do not have a circuit breaker small enough to make this worth having in the system. I would recommend bypassing or not worrying about the circuit breaker.

Will it replace a 3 amp fuse?

I have a older pair of vega 15" home towers that have 3 amp fuses. Will this work to replace the fuse. Would I be better off using 2 1.5a breakers to get my 3 amp load. I am unsure if the 5 second load rating will exceed the time a fuse would have taken to blow and possibly damage a woofer.
Asked by: Moose
Yes. Typically I do not "fuse" speaker drivers. They are power-hungry and the fuse link can act like an inductor [filter]. Rather, follow the rules for working with live amplifiers: never disconnect, dress, fix, repair, change, re-wire, pull, tug, move, clean, or TOUCH speaker output wires with the power ON. Turn the dman thing off if you gotta"administrate" your speaker wiring.
