Enjoyed your hospitality and much appreciated your appraisal of the ribbon the other day. Love your Mrs. and her fabulous quilting. And Max, heâ€™s still the same old whore â€“ anybody can pet him.
Got home rather late (too long a story), but reassembled the speaker and cranked her up, and it soundedâ€¦terrible!!! Not just the ribbon in question, but all four of them, some worse than others. As soon as I turned her up good and loud (that never takes me long) I heard buzzes, pops, distortion â€“ enough to make anybody think the whole rig had gone belly-up. Really awful. Turned her down for a while and it sounded fine there. Later, when cranking it up again, everything OK, normal, just peachy-dandy, and no problem since. So what goes here?
I have to figure itâ€™s humidity â€“ weâ€™d had cool drizzle for about 4-5 days, no heating, no A/C, house just staying about 70 degrees and relative humidity higher than 70%. So, running them cooks out the moisture? Is that a reasonable theory? Can dampness do that? Or loose screws? Or have I got a screw loose?
