As some of you might know, I purchased my 1.2TLs from a friend years back. I helped him install them when they were new and after they were given the boot by his wife, I took them off his hands for a song. Anyway, I never did anything to them except clean them up a bit and connect them to my system. Today I decided to check out the jumper wires for corrosion and such and was shocked by what I found! I called my friend to ask if he changed the jumper wire and was told he never touched it. I've attached a picture of the wires I removed.
Now with all the quality components Polk uses in it speakers (expecially it's SRS), why would they resort to using 16ga lamp cord with standard tin crimp rings and then cut 1/3 of the loop off so it would go over the lug? I guess I know what my next small project is. Time to get some decent wire and gold plated spade connectors.
Hmmmm.... Anyone else's jumpers look like these? If it's not Polk's doing, then I wonder if the place where he purchased them did it. I know they had them up and connected for him to listen to before he took possession of them.
