    Apparently not. I have it on good authority that the AC current changes both POLARITY and DIRECTION every 1/60th of a second.

    Now, I bet even an experienced awedeeOHfile like you didn't know that AC had POLARITY did you? C'mon...admit it.

Of course not. How would any electricity get to the TV if it was constantly jumping back and forth, or "reversing direction" between the wall and the TV? The voltage, or the force that pushes the current, swings between a maximum and a minimum value, but the net flow of energy (electrical current) is forward from the wall to the TV.
    Really!!
    Maybe that is why there are two prongs on a power cord that carry current. Just a thought.
    We don't want too many at one time. Forget the math too. P=V x I is too complex.

    Don't you just love it!

    It appears some of the candy@sses are coming out of hiding now since tags have been eliminated.

    The front mains are Polk Audio SDA SRS's.
    Really? How do the LSi blend with the SDA SRS?

    I recently replaced the stock fuses on my subwoofer, media player, and amplifier with the AMR Gold Fuses. Couple of interesting observations. I tried both directions on the new fuses in each component. I didn't notice any change in sound on the subwoofer and media player, but BIG difference with the amp. I don't have a multimeter to measure polarity but in one direction the amp sounds smoother and more relaxed, with the fuse installed the other direction there is more detail and hf extension. The difference is not subtle and immediately noticeable. I'd describe the change as comparable to switching stock power cord with a high quality aftermarket one.

    I wouldn't have believed any of this if I hadn't tried it and heard the change myself.

    Wow, this thread was way before my time. It's still amazes me when you have a proven PHd. and maybe another doctor going at it. All through science theories have been debated, debunked or proven as science fact. There's always been competion even among sceintists on the same project(many on the Manhattan Project couldn't agree until Fermi and Oppenheimer pulled the team together) and then you have 2 people working in 2 different countries on the same project and not know like the race for the jet engine w/ England's Frank Whittle and Germany w/ Dr. Hans Von Oheim just as 1 minor example. Where does that leave me in a 55 y/o apt with brittle aluminum wiring. I do have circuit breakers and not glass fuses and I hear nothing but music and only music. Lucky I guess.

    He's talking about fuses in gear, not your home LW. LOL

    My point was to the fact that someone tried it on their own and heard for themselves the changes that can occur. Where have I heard that before ?? Hmmm....

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I am just now running across your question. Due to a glitch in the forum software, I (and some others) no longer get email notification when someone responds to a thread I'm subscribed to.

    The LSis blend with the SRSs very well. There is no glaring timbre shift as sounds move from side to center to the other side through the LSi9s. The LSi15s I use for surrounds also blend in well with the SRSs. I do have to use dual LSi9s for centers because one LSi9 did not match the sonic weight of the SRSs. I also disconnected the tweeter of one of the LSi9s for a more balanced sound.
