Another newbie on the forum.
After owning a set of sda crs+ since the 80's (due to old age the exact year eludes me) now housed improperly in a nice entertainment unit in the living room I determined it was time to put together a real system to enjoy in the basement/familyroom/ to be man cave. Suddenly a set of sda 2bs appears on ebay within 25 miles of home. I was on it, especially for the price of $200. They were well cared for and included the original paperwork!
Next I learned about this forum and all the guidance, help and advice offered. I purchased a GFA 555 and an Adcom tuner/preamp.The placement of the 2bs is terrible, I am sad to admit, as I fit them in tightly beside cabinetry and against side walls. I will work to improve this in the future. So the sound is very good, but not great. The tweeters get grating over time and I'm surely losing much of the sda effect due to poor positioning. Its time for mods!
My plan is to do Larry's rings (feel free to contact me toolfan66), dynamat the drivers, and jb weld, followed by replacing the original drivers with the RO-198s, upgrading the capacitors and resistors. What else would you all recommend moving forward for significant improvements? Perhaps I should spike the speakers as they are on carpet.
Thank you all for all your posts, advise and sometimes good humor! Its good to be a known member.
