Hello. I use Straight Wire Virtuoso on my Unos. Also since they have a powered subwoofer, a good power cord makes a positive improvement. You did not say how you are wiring these: single, bi or tri? Question... I am familiar with 1.0's and the current 2.0's, what makes yours a 1.5? Thanks. Shoemaker
Ditto Shoemaker's remark: what is a 1.5 Version? Also, are you going to single, bi or tri-wire? The horns are so efficient and do not necessarily create "slap-back" upstream, you should first try single wiring with jumpers (better than the ones that come with the UNOs). Nirvana is excellent. I recently designed a recording studio with DUOs and is currenlty tri-wired as follows: KIMBER SELECT (Silver) on the large horn, NORDOST-SPM REF on the small horn, KIMBER SELECT (Copper) on the Sub. SYNERGISTIC Designer's Ref works well on the Sub. Although the PASS is a great Amp, you may want to try bi-amping with a a Tube Amp up-top (finesse)and a solid state Amp (slam)just for the Sub. Also, you should use high grade Power Cords on the Subs. I have had great experience with PS-AUDIO Lab Cables for the price. I am a dealer for Pro-Audio and custom install applications, let me know if I can help you out with any of the foregoing. Morever, please let me know what you have found that works. Avantgarde is awesome and will be a design option for my clients. Happy Holidays!
Hi Treed, Sorry but a 1.0 with a upgraded sub is still a 1.0 . There are no 1.5s. The current 2.0s come with a 217 or 225 sub and no matter witch sub its still a 2.0. Well the same is true for 1.0s. Also you can upgrade a 217 to a 217 pro, but not to a 225. Now don't get me wrong, a 1.0 with the upgraded sub is a great speaker, I know because I own a pair of same. Enjoy Shoemaker
