Greetings! I am a complete newbie I have a Whistler 1580 which has worked extremely well for 11 years - a really well engineered product.
A couple of weeks ago the audio went silent. Everything else works fine. I investigated and found that the speaker coil has gone open circuit. I checked this by measuring the impedance (complete open circuit) and by substituting a temporary test speaker (which works fine).
Could someone please help me to purchase a replacement speaker? It is a specialist Mylar miniature unit and I cannot readily find it by searching the Internet. I need only the speaker - it is extremely easy to remove / replace.
These are the specs:
Type No: DMS3616A
Impedance: 16 Ohms
Only the dimensions and the impedance are important. The power is not important - 0.2 watts or more is fine. In fact the speaker could usefully have been rated at higher power to start with.
I am located in England so I doubt if it's practical to send the complete unit for repair. But as I mention above, the speaker is extremely easy to remove and replace.
