    The red dot on the drivers is positive. Little black jumper?? Where is the jumper located? My 1C's don't have a little black jumper. Did this jumper come with the speakers loose?

    the jumper wire was for wiring them in series, let me guess only one is working? see the little piece of white tape, thats to let you know that goes to negative.

    I recently purchased four 194's and with the discount and shipping to MD from CA, they ran me $203 and some change. Well worth the money spent!

    Correct 194, like 48 bucks shipped for CP forum members, crossovers will be anywhere from 100-200-300 or more depending on who does the work and the components you use. They will sound better with new tweets and x-over upgrades. you should use a room treatment next to the speaker on the wall to prevent reflections since you don't have the room to put them 3 feet from the wall. These are considered by some to be one of the three best sounding SDA's made.

    Congrats on the 1C's,,, if you wanna' fast track the mods on these,I would order the caps and resistors from sonicap,especially if they are still on sale,,add in, two .5ohm 12 watt resistors to replace the polyswitches,,forget about the silver micas(you're gonna toss them)once you get the parts in,,follow the links,,or just contact one of the members who have performed this upgrade,and I'm sure they will be happy to help--good luck and congratulations .

    Magic!!!!




    What they do is a few things. you get a much better mounting hole to secure the drivers, also you will get better detail of sound as these help with a nice tight fit = less vibrations. also i suggest using mortite as a gasket seal on the drivers and with these rings = "Magic". If you follow my SDA 1C upgrade thread you will see all that can be done.. Keep in mind I am taking a break from the rings after this run is sold out...

    Enjoy have fun...
