    A longer jumper wire between the negative terminals of the speakers accomplishes EXACTLY the same thing as a jumper wire at the negative terminals of the amplifier. It is a dead short BETWEEN THE...

    The 1C should be easier to drive than 1Bs based on the nominal 6-ohm impedance versus 4-ohms for the 1Bs.

    The physical size of the speaker has little impact on whether or not your receiver can...

    You need to ask yourself if you will ever want to use non-common-ground amplifiers. This could be any number of exotic or non-exotic amps, or it could be bridged amps including some monoblocs.

    ALL 2Bs can use the AI-1, early production speakers will require an ultra-simple and inexpensive modification.

    Yup, you're right. Not listed in the owner's manual, but clearly spec'd in the brochure at the same power level as the later 555 II.

    Nothing you aren't doing already (I suspect.)

    The jumper has been working for me for years. Don't worry. You'll be fine. You're gonna LOVE how that 8008BB (or the 8008x3) works with your SDA 2Bs. The Aragons are so...effortless.

    Got a better deal on the Palladium IIs, and it just kills me that I can't use 'em with the SDA 1Bs.

    I'd be stunned if the Adcom '555 could throw 1400 watts bridged into 4 ohms. I bet the 4-ohm rating isn't much higher (if at all higher) than the 8-ohm rating.

    Bridged/balanced amps are NEVER common-ground.
