Carver Speaker Discussions and Questions
Wanted to say thanks to you guys for turning me on to this source.
I have the original Amazings that were updated to Platinums with a kit Carver offered. That kit contained new ribbons and cross overs, but not new woofers. I suspect that my woofers are different than the OEM Platinums.
Anyone have any guidance?

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
If it were me, I would replace the woofers with the original SW-1220FL. Since the upgrade kit didn't bother to replace the woofers, and they sounded fine after the upgrade, I would be leary about changing the woofers out to the Plat (WP-1220) model. I'm curious to know if the upgrade crossover was made to accomodate the earlier woofer impedance. I have a call in to Mylinda at carveraudiorepair.com (?) and will post what I find out. Keep us posted!
I downloaded a test cd for base notes, and got some clicking and poor response on 1 speaker
You got the wrong CD, you need one for BASS notes.
Anyway, you'll want the SW-1220FL woofers since yours were never replaced.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
