speaker/stand, couple or isolate?
I have some fairly large KEF floorstanders in a large room on a suspended timber floor. I found the sound very much improved when I hung them from the ceiling with motorbike clutch cable. It is fairly easy to experiment with height and well worth ... 
Any cable delivers more bass than Cardas Golden Reference?
Dumbeatdid you try toggling between left and right after switching the cable around.its more likely the speakers are not matched. 
Which cable
Many thanks tablejockey, but shouldn't that read his attention to detail 'is' second to none

Back in the 90's when I was doing my masters in Audio and Acoustic engineering at Solent University we spent many months doing blind trials with different types of interconnect leads. After thousands of comparisons with very little compelling data... 
Could headphones be used to evaluate speakers?
I know speaker stands are expensive, especially those supplied by the speaker manufactures but if you need to elevate your speakers cheaply why not try beer crates. You can choose your favorite beer! 
Looking for a good full range floor stander
EveningThere's only really one name you need to know and that's Pallmann. They have a single serpentine drive and an aluminium finned German power unit. That said, if you have a smaller room this could be overkill. Remember to remove absolutely ev... 
Horns and 2in Drivers
IMHO a 6" loaded horn would be a minimum requirement but obviously it's a case of getting the proper mount and experimenting with the angle so that everyone in the room is happy.

Glupsom, it's a G2711 super 2,  cassette, radio record player. In its day it was great piece of kit  but it's overdue a speaker upgrade,  hence the mega bass 3000'sI have tried the bell wire and all fine, it's the positioning of the speakers which...

Thanks for the link I have had a look but I'm pretty sure I need wire with some sort of plastic covering,  or does it not matter with speakers. 
Quick and free fuse tweak
It's surprising what low cost tweaks work well. I recently bought a box full of cardboard egg boxes and glued them to every inch of the ceiling in my lounge (5.6m x 7.5m x 2.6m). The difference is unbelievable,  much more detailed cymbals and perc... 
Which cable
Thank's for all your comments. Its a confusing subject as I was advised to purchase some Qued cable in my local HiFi store which was going to cost more than the entertainment centre. 
Q acoustics harsh high end
Thanks for the link. They are certainly well reviewed. I'll give it a few weeks and go from there.

Thanks for the reassurance. Can any one recommend cables that might take the edge off the shrill top end.

Sorry, the speakers I grew up with were Monitor Audio MA4s, from 1976. I guess you would call them a classic design with a 8" KEF bass driver,  25mm tweeter and a port. They were a couple of hundred quid at the time, so quite pricey. The 3050's ar...
