Re: *~Gone Active~*

I REALLY beat them up with some Donald Fagen today (The Nightfly & Two Against Nature); no fuses or circuit breakers blown (astoundingly!) & they sound terrific~

Now to just get the other speaker done & get proficient with the Room EQ Wizard...

Re: *~Gone Active~*

At first, no sound. A few minutes of troubleshooting (of course, AFTER everything was put back together--GRRRR!).....

I had a couple of cables going into the wrong slot~ fixed~

Sounding good!

I used the DeOxit spray. It's impossible to wipe out the switches & pots, but I sprayed them, worked the pot/switch for a few minutes, then followed up with the GOLD. I used Q-tips for the connectors, wiped them well, let it sit, then wiped them off & used the GOLD as a follow up/protectant on everything.

It'd be a nice upgrade for someone that has the "plus" versions.
