scored amazing ribbons for 75.00$

Image

amazing ribbons for 75.00$ that I got off craigslist..... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
went there with my 14 yo daughter, when we go in we get introduced to his partner.... :lol: :lol:
had a real nice set up, even had a carver amp,driving a set of ML ribbons, sounded good. he used to have a set of amazings that had the upgrade done on them, but his manwife did not want them in the living room.
so my guess is these have low hours with loud music. he was using them as rear surround speakers, put his pioneer could not handle these when it was cranked up. :lol: :lol: :lol:

so when we get back into the car I ask my kid if she knew what was up.... :-k
she said it took her while to figure out what he meant by "PARTNER"
she also said there was a lot of strange things around the house....
I think it was the naked boy statue in the corner..... :lol: :lol: :lol: that let her figure it out....
but he was a real nice guy.... 8) 8)

Re: scored amazing ribbons for 75.00$

If you're planning to use those for your Plats, it won't work with the stock crossover. It would probably be easiest to just go active biamping at this point, but you're taking a step backward to put Original ribbons in the Plats.

What's wrong with your Plat ribbons?

BTW, where's your OTHER avatar?? 8)

Re: scored amazing ribbons for 75.00$

You have to remember that each of those ribbons (one of the pair) is like a 0.75Ω resistor. They are wired in series, so the ribbon pair has an impedance of 1.5Ω, almost entirely resistive. The crossover eats a lot of current going to those ribbons. Think about putting 15 Amps across a 1.5Ω load (which is almost a short) and think about how hot the traces in that ribbon are going to get. A TFM-75 will put out 1000W into 4Ω W=I²R → I=√(W/R) → I=√250 = 15.8 Amps.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Re: scored amazing ribbons for 75.00$

yes I got the same reading when I checked them with a meter....
and was wondering this also.....
so if I did have the correct crossover I would be good then?
how did these ever work if the load was almost a short, did the crossover eat up the amps...as in wasted heat.....
I guess I could just sell them off... it was one of those too good a deals to let go by.... :-"
I just had to rescue those poor little fellers.... :lol: :lol: :lol:
