Best way to break in a tube amp? With cheap tubes?
Thank you Czbbcl. 
the smoothest sounding speaker
Ultra smooth. This has held true for both the 5.0s and 6.2s I have owned. Mating with tubes is almost too much imo. 
Compact Low-Powered Amp Recomendations?

Tube amp speaker output 4 ohms VS 8 ohms
My experience is that there is no way to tell without trying. The sound will be much different in most cases. I have had 4 ohm speakers sound better on 8 ohm taps many times. You certainly will not hurt anything by experimenting. If you run search...

Proceed PAV/PDSD HT Processors Good?
The shortcomings have been effectively addressed in this thread. I could be wrong, but I do not see the value of these units falling to much farther below where they are now. In regards to the sound, if 2ch music is going to be something you are g...

Platinum solos need repair
Hmm, this is a proprietary woofer that is obviously no longer produced. Every once in a while you see parts for these on ebay. I do believe that you can use the studio series drivers as well, as an upgraded cabinet and crossover is the only differ... 
Review: Quad 12L-A Active Monitor
Thanks for the responses. No, there is no active version of the 11l to my knowledge. tcp; Quad moved their dynamic line of speakers in house before they launched this line. Before, speakers like the 10l were produced for Quad by Spendor. Quad redi...
