Question for Toy Maker or DaveS

Post by skip » Fri Oct 12, 2007 6:50 am

Hey guys, do new ribbons have a break in period? I know the woofers do, and have heard the bass response improve exponentially now that they have a couple hundred hours on them. I swear the new ribbon I installed just before the fest keeps getting better and better. The top end just seems a lot crisper now they have about 100 hrs on 'em and the mid range has more warmth and depth. Is it just my ears fooling be or do the ribbons indeed get better after working for awhile?

What? With winter coming on? The woods get dang cold bout this time of year. I do go to my stylist at Pets, Inc. for a full body trim in the spring, but that's months away. And no, my hair doesn't plug up my ears. By the way, how do you NW guys keep your amps from shorting out now that you'll be under water till late May?

Ok, pic #1 was uncalled for. A poor Sasquatch can't even take a dump in private any more.
