    Wasn't the Mercury rant the thing that got Candyliquor banned?

    Remember that first fest at Polk HQ? I shook someones hand (was it Lou?) and they asked who I was? I said Candyliquor and everyone looked...lol

    OK, it was Russ Abernathy (hoosier21) whom reminded me in a 2010 facebook message...

    "hey Ron like your post..."

    I'm not Ron I'm Rich.

    "I know you dumbass Ron from Indy is how you introduced yourself to me at Polk it was funny wish you remembered lol"

    ..... kind of a cheap gift if you ask me, but they're kind of known for being frugal.
    I guess it's the thought that counts.

    Not room dependent.
    No AC trash.
    12VDC.

    I'd like to see what happens to those if you hooked 12V DC to the terminals. Fried tweeter and voice coils in no time.

    Speakers are the same whether for car audio or home audio. They all run off of a cyclic output which replicates the audio input signal. AC

  • Used to use Focal, Dynaudio, Peerless, Polydax, etc. all the time in my car stereo shops back in the day. When Alpine got serious about component drivers they relabelled Dynaudio 6 1/2's and tweets as thiers and Gauss 12's and 15's for bottom end. Becker, Audax, and other western Europe brands where sold and used everywhere in the early days of separates in car stereo. They were the only real choices in the beginning. Or Radio Shack for the cheapos.

    The OP just meant to use DC rather than AC to generate all of the operating voltages for the amplifier -- no transformer, rectifier, or filter(s) to leave residual AC noise on the DC rails -- of course, the power output of an amplifier limited to 13.8 VDC rails will be -- somewhat limited. Any higher voltages probably would be generated with a switch-mode style power supply, which generates a nasty spectrum of noise(s) all by itself.

    Heck, batteries even have a chemical (no kidding) noise floor.

    Yes, I know that. I just think he made too much of a point that the "speakers" were DC...speakers are speakers. You can put car audio speakers in a box and use them on home equipment and vice versa.

    absolutely -- heck one of my favorite-er "full range" hifi drivers was originally sold as a car radio replacement speaker.

    The venerable R/S 40-1354, first offered in 1983 (the year I got married) and sold for a couple of decades thereafter.
