Well, Bob said he's going to voice them at CF for me...
So I guess we will see what he says 1st. I've waited 4-5 years for him to get involved, and now it seems he might finally have the free time to lend a hand.

But those are good ideas... I just have no idea where to start....

Just talk to Bob about it James. He'll know what to do if he thinks theres a market for them.

I just made a surprising discovery....
I was reading in another thread, and saw someone talking about a Signature 600 and a 625 ???
I didn't know there was a 625 (never really kept up with Sunfire that much)
Well, I decided to go find out what the difference was...

Come to find out, the Signature 625x2 has more of a dual monoblock looking back panel, which is what mine looks like.
So I'm guessing mine is a 625x2 ?? and my other one is the 325x2 ??

\:D/ COOL !!!! \:D/

Well, it is 4 1/6 percent increase (about 0.1772677dB, if I did the math right).
It should sound like it isn't there!
There is a difference between hearing and listening...

I can see why you would need amps with prodigious amounts of power!! Those speakers are a work of art themselves. Do you think it would be beneficial to run higher current to the amps say increasing to 20 amp service?

So....is the frog an acoustic absorber, or deflector? Inquiring minds want to know.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

The frog is hiding the fact that my Top Caps are missing and you can see the silver faceplate of the ribbon, purely decoration. :lol: :lol:
