    DeoxIT & DeoxIT GOLD (formerly ProGold)?

    I Just bought two tubes from www.caig.com , I was planning on using it on all of the connections on my crossovers and on all of the plus & minus quick connects before attaching my new Tweeters.

    Is this just overkill?, or for $15.00 I might as well do it?

    Thanks,

    I use it all the time, mostly on switches and pots but I've used it to clean rca jacks and speaker terminals. So no, it's not a waste or overkill and it's probably the best choice out there.

    Not overkill a must in my book as I use it all the time. I know guys who break down their rigs and deoxit the electrical connectors every six months.

    Now I bought both products, the regular deoxit & the gold. Did I read it correctly that I should clean with the regular one first and then use a drop of gold?

    Do I wipe off both products or do I leave the gold on?

    Thanks!

    Ok, I just finished putting together my 1.2's with the new RD0198's and this is the 1st time I am listening to them with working tweeters. It's late I can't push them but from my 1st listen they sound so much better than the SRS 2's.

    Next week I will get me new AMP and I will keep swapping out the 1.2tl's & the 2's and I will get to the bottom line and figure out exactly which pair sound better.

    I can tell you right now that the 1.2 tls with upgraded tweeters will sound alot better than a 1st gen sda srs2 without mods. Now if you mod a 2nd gen srs 2 and upgrade the crossovers and tweeters then you can have a contender for the 1.2 tls. I currently own 2 sets of 1.2 tls 1 with the original sl 3000 tweeters and 1 with upgraded rd 198 tweeters. I also have 2 sets of sda srs2 1st and 2nd generation 1 with the upgraded rd 194 and the other with the original sl 2000.
    My oppinion of which sounds best out of these 4 speakers:
    1. sda srs 1.2 tl with upgraded rd 198 and a very close 2nd sda srs 2 2nd generation with upgraded rd 194 tweeters.

    I've used DeoxIt to good effect on cleaning connectors, not overkill at all in my book.

    However, subsequent application of Walker SST has taken my system to another level, and quite a high one - for my SDA-1C's, I've applied it (carefully, according to the directions!) to tweeter/driver connectors, crossovers, speaker jacks, IC pins, etc. The Walker product also is used throughout the rest of my system on tube pins, RCA connectors, ICs, PCs, IECs, speaker cables, etc. It's pricey, there's an even more expensive Walker formula available, and some persons think Mapleshade is a similar (and less costly) product. There's a number of positive reviews of the Walker product out there, Google is your friend. FYI - SST is not like DeoxIt ProGold. I've used both and SST smokes ProGold, in my system with my gear to my ears.

    YMMV.

    Sal it's going to take about 30 hours for the 098s to break in. When I first installed mine they sounded "hollow." It took a good 25 hours to warm up and over thirty to get the right sound.

    Yes they are. So are your sda srs2s I believe they are the same for efficency. I know I was watching the meters on my proton amp and at 4 watts being used it was close to a 100db and at 8 watts being used it was over 100db in the room which is sufficent most of the time.

    The SRS 2's are 4 ohms and require a lot of headroom, They shut down my reciever. This is the first time that has ever happened to me.

    You shouldn't run SDA's off a receiver, period.

    yup you definitley need an amp that is designed to handle a 4 ohm load. I have had it happen to me also with a receiver that I thought could handle it, but very few are capable of handling a 4 ohm load for very long at any volume especially when that load dips down to 2 ohms or even 1 ohm during a heavy bass passage.

    But your carver you have coming will like it. Even though most of the time you will never use even half its actual power, it has the headroom and capacitance to handle it, which is a good thing.:)


    With a nice amp you will be amazed at how few watts it uses to obtain a nice listening level. I was I know.
