I blew up my amplifier!!!! DAMN DAMN DAMN
It finally happened, I screwed up BIG TIME. I knew what I did wrong the moment it happened...and when it blew, it REALLY blew. I'm talking SNACK CRACKLE POP AND FLAMES coming out of the amplifier. So what did I forget??? I forgot to remove the jumper wire on the binding posts of my SRS speakers when I went to bi-amplification. Thank God that the speakers are all right and I only blew one of the two amps.
Note to self...."take your time and be more careful".
Anyway, I finished up with the 2-channel setup and the subwoofers....man it sounds great!!! (I said that to console myself).
SDA driver commits suicide
I've never blown any electrical equipment in my home yet, but yesterday I popped a midwoofer out of the voice coil on my SDA 1Cs. Was listening to some jazz with the volume around 11 o'clock on my preamp and heard a little pop every now and then coming from my right speaker. I took off the grill just in time to see the MW jump out of the voice coil and lock into place out in front of the frame. I've listened alot of times this loud and even higher, with no issues, but I'm thinking there may have been a low frequency note that pushed the driver into suicide.
Brian Bromberg - Choices was on at the time, nice CD if you haven't heard it yet. He is truly a gifted bass player.
