I just picked up a nice set of Monitor 10B's for an experiment. I want to use these to augment the bass and lower mid-range for a set of Magnepan's, either the MMG's or the 1.6's. Based on some other similar set-ups I have listened to, this gives you the spacial characteristics and open upper-end of the Maggies, with the solid mid-range and lower thump of the Polks. I used to run a set of JBL L100's with the tweeters unhooked with a set of Magnepan Tympani's way back before sub-woofers were readily available, and loved it! Not really sure why I got rid of that set-up, but I'm sure I don't have to explain the decision to this audience:-)
Now for the main ? Do I need to put a good quality resistor across the leads to the tweeter when I unhook it? I don't want to ruin the cross-overs. Does anyone know what value of resistor I should use, or should I ask Ken @ Polk? On my JBL's I just unhooked the speaker wires, but the old JBL's were built like a tank, and I was younger and didn't care about these types of issues!
