    well the tweeters work great. One woofer works for now. The second free moving woofer in the one cabinet is MIA. I direct wired it and nothing.

    I think I read MW6600 on it's label. So I need a fresh one of those too.

    I thought the speaker was bright and I know why. I forgot to hook up the other speaker to listen to the frozen woofers to see if they're trying to make sound.

    BUT...I did get a hint of these speakers sound signature. And I liked it. :p:D

    I can imagine monitor 10 but clearer I think.

    They're indoors now and another project to put on my list of speakers that need attention and cross-over work needs.

    It was fun this afternoon, as always, when I bring a new set of speakers home and listen to their sound signatures. Tons of fun! :p It keeps the blood flowing too! ;)

    I know a guy..... mw6600

    Those labels are black instead of the white we are accustomed to
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 8,916
    Do you ? :D

    I need to speak to him if in fact this mid-woofer is that #. ;)

    That should be the correct one for those. They shared the mw6600 with SDA1's A and Signature for a time
    It is why I've always thought the mw6600 and mw6501 were the same driver.

    All bets are off now someone bid. I'd love pair of those. Bet they go for more than 1200.00. I'll be suprised if they didn't. I'd send them directly to Roland or Sunfire(maybe)to get a complete rehab.

    I was thinking about ya Ivan when I seen these. A set went for 19 hundie a while back if you recall. Funny the listing says $1175 buy it now, but no BIN button.

    The "buy-it-now" disappears when somebody places a bid. ;) The seller had a 900.00 "bid starting point" I'm sure.

    That is weird. Can you "refresh your watch list" link to those amps?

    I don't see the 1175.00 BIN price when I click on the ad. :#

    Same deal Tony. The "I'd like to..." button allows you to contact the seller. I wonder if you tried that and offered the BIN price, they may accept.

    @pitdogg2 give it a go Ivan! :smile:

    It is not and was not a BIN when I looked. Standard procedure is it goes away after first bid.
    It is strange you still see it.

    Yea I wish Dave....
  • nooshinjohnnooshinjohn Posts: 22,448
    Those amps are well regarded for their power, but no much else. They are more hype because they were said to be voiced to sound like the mega buck tube amps, but they are not even close, and they don't sound as good as a Pioneer Elite from around the same timeframe.

    I'd love to have a pair because they're "iconic" more than use day in and out. No they do not sound anything like the silver seven tubes. I've heard both, the tubes are like liquid music to my ears at the time. Heck now i may very well think differently about them. I mean shoot the TFM series had just come out so what was that late 80's early 90's?
