Ok gents, Needs some help...
First off, I know i need to get more juice pumped to these (but what i have for now will have to do 80wpc)
But last night i was feeling like dumping these when i first sat down for a listen! The highs are WAY to bright and the lows seemed to have lost themselves! (first beer) Ok i had some Hendrix on (A merman i shall turn to be) And it wasn't cutting, So i work a little on placement with no help (put them back to were they were) Now my room is 16x16 Carpet covering a cement floor! All walls are concrete with studding and drywall except the wall behind the sytem (long story short, I converted my garage into my living room) So the wall behind the system is the wall where the door used to be! OK phew~! Now that, that's out! Like i was saying High are harsh! I am using a junk jvc CD player coupled to a Yamaha "natural sound" receiver, Plus i have a DBX synthesizer/crossover/bassboost coupled in there as well!
Still harsh, so am standing there looking at these beasts and not thinking good thoughts. I Put my hand over the Tweet and it calmed down the harshness, but way too much! So i think i need to baffle these a bit! So i reach down, Peel off my socks and hang one on each speaker right over the tweeter! WOW.... It clicked! Nice and smooth! no more harshness (little loss of some of the crispness, But MUCH better!
Now i have some Stone temple Pilots in (core) and it was still pleasing my ears, So i thought FINALLY i have found the ticket...
Sound is starting to loose it's edge (highs not good enough)
Socks come off!
Ok, now that i have bored you!
Is there a way to "choke" these tweets a little without affecting anything?
Maybe a "Cap"? Or rework the crossover? Or should i refine my Sock method? lol...
"Why was it, back in the day. The music counted, Now it's the quality of the sound that counts"?
Am i getting OLD... :)~
