Just got a pair of use PSB Bronze Stratus in like-new condition. Even the packaging is like new. The guy said he used them for surround only.
I hooked them up, and they sounded like there was a blanket thrown over them. Running them biamped, Rotel RB-971 (70 watts) and RB-987 (130 watts) The 971 goes to the upper binding posts, that connect to a mid and the tweeter, for 500 Hz and up.
I got out my Fluke, and measured across the posts: 3.9 ohms on the bottom pair, and a whopping 430 kohms on the top (no, I did not misplace the decimal point). The other speaker measured over 600 on the top!!
What the fudge is this all about? Also, from one of the mids I hear a tinny zing every so often, that sounds like something vibrating.
I should add: I think the speakers may have never been biamped or biwired before, as the jumpers were there, the plugs for the banana holes were still in, and the mid-hi posts were locked down so tight I had to use pliers to get them started.
