  • I'm late to the thread, but I say go for it. It's much easier to do with two separate amps, but much harder to synchronize the volume that way. I've thought of @westmassguy 's example before as an experiment, and even compared the crossovers, alth…
  • They look great and all, but that is a lot of work when you could have just used some black paint for the screws. Seriously though, WOW!
  • I couldn't find much on what era that Fisher is, but it looks like its around the 80's. It's supposed to have about 90WPC, which should be more than enough. Fishers from around that time were known to have issues, and not known for their longevity…
  • What amp / receiver do you have now? BTW a speakers recommended amplification is just a rough gauge. Most quality 125W amps are WAY over kill for 5Jr's based on a common max. source input level. I have had a 250W high current amp connected to my …
  • I guess the last time I did a check was with my 1C's and a used AA was more than enough to get things moving well. Remember using a good C-cell on good 12" sub once and hearing it clack as the voice coil bottomed out. From then on I used AA's for …
  • TY @westmassguy . The Clarity PX come in 6.8 and two are less than one Sonicap. If going the Clarity route, 10 Watt Mundorf MOX resistors are also an option.

  • The 5Jr+ Series 2 have the 13.5 µF caps. I don't think Clarity makes one close to this size. SonicCraft will do "customs" so you get the exact 13.5 µF Sonicap. That is what I did. I forget the exact method they say to do that, but you can cont…
  • I took a listen to your favorites. You have most of the albums I would have recommendations from. I didn't see any from Six Degrees (SD) so I picked more from there. I am not really up to speed on their new stuff without Mike. The drumming just d…

  • This was a fun vintage read though. The variations on number of drivers and combinations of them is interesting. It makes me wonder what the crossovers looked like. Graphic equalizers were made for these speakers and created some interesting patte…

  • Minor detour but a good one this time. @mhardy6647 Good read. The corners make sense to me. What about just a back wall. A number of speakers recommend a set distance from a back wall for reinforcement. Does that still affect the perceived d…
