I finally made the upgrade that made the sl2000's too bright for me in my 2b's. When I went from stranded to solid core speaker wire, something began to sound a little harsh and so I put in the silk replacements for like the 10th time and this time I didn't think I was deaf like I did all the other times. I actually liked what I was hearing and there was something to hear unlike all the other times.
You're probably thinking the silks hadn't been broken in but I made sure I played them a extra long time before taking them out so many times and I always hooked the black wire to the red terminal.
Is it possible the silks aren't as forgiving as the sl2000's when it comes to having halfway decent components, interconnects, etc?
Edit: I guess a better way to say that is: Is it possible the silks aren't as forgiving as the sl2000's when there's a weak link in the system?
