Maggie MG12 Tweaks


Just received a pair of the MG12's and initially am very impressed. I have seen threads about tweaks to really get these to sing. Does anyone have experience with tweaking these? I'm a bit hesitant to pulling off the socks and playing with crossovers etc. Input and advise appreciated.

Based on my experience with MG1.6, your urge to tweek something would be best accomodated by replacing the iron core inductor of the crossover with an air core inductor. Leave the stock capacitors in place...they ain't bad.
Thanks, I have MYE stands on order as so many seem to recommend. I have by passed the attenuator and heard doing the same to the fuse helps too.
MYE?WhyI know that Sound Anchor always did it for me with piston speakers but the owner Mike Warzalla was hoinest and said that his had no sonic effect over the stock one (and the speaker it holds)built his would allow the reverse of what we donormally.Normally speaker stanmds kick out the bottom and tilt the top of the speaker back.He said he dsigned his to do what planar speakersneed the opposite with the top leaning foward.He is a guy who has made so many of mine and my freinds (and customers while selling speakersmyself like B&W's where even the floorstanding speakers most often had drn\matic improvement) I would trust him if he said George Bush knew what he was doing.So what are the MYE stands and why are they the choiceZ?
Thanks for info

for all things planar.

Chazzbo,

Your spelling, grammar, and punctuation are worse than anything even George could come up with.

And BTW, I for one believe he DOES know what he's doing....

Thanks Ozzy, I have searched the site at some length. I must admit Chazzbo had me scratching my head a bit. MYE stands are made in Canada and by most accounts essential for getting the best performance out of the maggies. They raise them off the floor and provide better stability.For the price of decent cable(another story) I'll give 'em a try.
Ozzy, I was about to say something but I'm glad you did.

Beernut, I also have the MG12 with custom stands. You might consider upgrading the crossover. I'm planning on doing that but it seems like a hassle. If you're interested, we can work on it together.
