Well,,I got the "suspect" woofer out,,connected it to the speaker cables,, turned the volume up slowly,,and it started to distort at a very low volume. At this point I think that I will replace the drivers and upgrade the wiring when I do so,,I am however concerned at the lack of bass (IMHO).I picked up these speaks from the original owner,,they started out as originals,,received the "plat" upgrade,,as far as I can tell,they are wired correctly,, they have the 60 inch ribbons,plat crossover,,and the original drivers which I will replace with the swl 1220(IIRC) from the dynavox/orevox folks. I had a fleeting thought of dragging these to Carverfest to let some of the folks who are infinetely more experienced take a look at em,, but I think that I'll just take a break and wait until the replacements are installed.I do have one question,, when playing,, are the mid/drivers supposed to move?I am powering them with Adcom 565 monos. All for now,,I need a break--george
Late note---I pulled a woofer out of another set, much improved,, I'm still going to replace the woofs and upgrade the wiring. One thing that I've found ,, I believe that it's going to take more than the adcom mono's to really make the babies sing. I apologize for trouncing on this thread--all for now.
