    Default For you obsessive tweakers...

    Tighten the disconnects that connect your midbass and tweeter to the crossover...

    loose disconnects smear detail and make you lose volume. I just had this problem... a disconnect was coming loose on the negative of my left front tweeter... my whole soundstage fumbled...

    It must be what Sid is feeling nowadays.

    From Dictionary.com: disconnect n : an unbridgeable disparity (as from a failure of understanding); "he felt a gulf between himself and his former friends";

    Pick your speaker wire off the ground...

    It picks up mouse harmonics...

    Put your power cables below ground...

    Keeps them grounded.

    Bury your speakers in the sand... keeps the resonance down. And inert... in more ways than one.

    Put expanding foam in your woofer baskets... keeps them very stiff!

    Put aluminum foil around your tweeters in the shape of a horn... improves detail!

    set your speakers in cement and give them redbull...it'll give them wings!

    Dump your speakers in grease...it'll give them a warm & sticky sound
