Hi Drew. Thanks for the information. Do you have the Orions/Thors? I guess I need to make a mental readjustment after having lived with Classe 1000 watt monoblocks running Thiel 3.6s. On another note: has anyone tried anything other than the recommended cables either for internal speaker wiring, or for the speaker cable itself. I've heard that SL believes that cables, as long as they are of the right gauge, should be fine(just hearsay) BUT I know from my experience that cables have made a HUGE difference in sound. I'm considering using wiring from the Alpha Core inductors for internal speaker wiring and going with Alpha-Core silver cables for the speaker cables. Is this overkill? Any experiences would be great.
I'm considering using wiring from the Alpha Core inductors for internal speaker wiring and going with Alpha-Core silver cables for the speaker cablesNot sure I've understood. Fm Orions backwards: connect each driver DIRECT to amplifier (higher voltage, spkr cable), then, amplifier to XOVER (low voltage, interconnect cable). You can use silver for both or the inductor wire for both. If you mix, try silver on IC & copper for the drivers.
Thanks Greg. I was considering terminating the "internal" wiring in the speaker to a Speakon connector, and then having a separate "speaker" cable to the amps. If I understood what you are saying it would be better to avoid the extra terminations at the speaker and go direct from driver to amp. Is that right?
