You know, I don't like this. I have been reading on this forum, the Klipsch forum, the Emotiva Lounge and even the Jeep Wrangler forum and this is two blown speakers of very high caliber that have been smoked by (maybe) an Emotiva amplifier within the last few weeks. I have not heard of other smoking speakers/amplifiers in all of my readings. Is it a common scenario? I was thinking of changing out my XPA5 with a Parasound 5250 that I picked up from......forgot who, nice guy D...something I think, lives in the west burgs of Chicago, in December. I'm gonna unplug the Emotiva and start swapping wires before my SDA's start that nasty habit...smoking.
