Help --> My Carver Plat MKIV has Ribbon Alignment Problem

Post by megasat16 » Sun Feb 15, 2009 3:43 am

Hi Again Folks,

I've been enjoying my Plats MKIV for quite a while now and I noticed that the sound come from both ribbons are not quite the same. I put my pre (Pioneer C90) on mono mode so both speakers should be playing the same tone. I've set the Mid and High adjustable knobs to all max for speakers. So, both speakers should have close enough sound to each other but I noticed the right ones being a bit more brighter and clearer than the left one. ](*,)

Upon close inspection, I noticed that the ribbon on the Left speaker does not completely aligned as the other one. I've lessen the screws on that ribbon and tried to tighten again but these ribbons doesn't move. Due to this out of alignment, the ribbons are kind of partially hidden in the middle track and on the outer track where the ribbons should be completely visible as in the right speaker.

I am suspecting that may be the cause of the problem since the ribbons are not playing freely as it should be and lessen the amount of sound it should produce. :-k

Do you have any fix for that or how do I go about to re-align the ribbons on this? :-k

Much Appreciated for your kind inputs! =D>

Ditto
Political Correctness...defined

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.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Thanks Folks!

I am thrilled Sir DaveS is on a road trip to CA. Is he coming near LA by any chance? I could invite him over a good dinner at the wood grills barbecue near me and have him look at my ribbons. :D :D :D

If he is not coming my way, I guess I just have to wait for him to arrive there again.

Now, a real stupid question from a clueless man - How do I contact / call Dave?
