Hey Rabbit ....

Post by Martin1970 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 2:18 pm

Did you try your CF amp on your ribbons yet?

Just hooked mine up and it sounds pretty damned good.

Even with 3 crap tubes and one Telefunken.

Didn't see that coming. Little amp #25's got some azz.

Kinda afraid it's going to burst into flame at any moment since I built it.

Any other bi-ampers out there try them on ribbons yet?

i was thinking about it. 60" ribbons have a 4.3 ohm resistive load. i did not seek the advice of the bobfather but i will say if it can drive the new line source speakers, then mine is nothing.

No; didn't plan to. I'm afeared what 3.7 ohms might do to a monoblocked amp.

Running stereo and it's handling it.

Aren't these different than bridging?

With bridging, don't you run the + of one channel to the + of the speaker and the +of the other to the -? (It's cool if that's wrong, please correct me.)

With these, you're connecting the +s together.

Wonder how that affects the min impedance.
