    I am in for a set for my 3.1's also whenever you do another run.

    @sfosselman,

    You are on the right track. Keep on keeping' on!

    I assume you have the SDA interconnect cable for your 1Cs.

    Have you read about the Dreadnought yet? A Dreadnought (or sometimes, "Dreadnaught") improves sound, even if you are using a common-ground amp.

  • I am sad to say I do not have the interconnect cable with the 1C's. Right now I am using 16 gauge speaker wire and the effect is there. I was going to purchase or DIY the cable but now I might wait and replace the posts and use a custom Speakon interconnect. Any thoughts?

    @sfosselman,

    My advice is to go beyond building a custom SDA interconnect with Speak-on connectors. Go all the way and build a Dreadnought interconnect with a good-sized toroidal transformer.

    There are a number of threads on the Forum about building a Dreadnought to replace or serve as the SDA interconnect. DarqueKnight, I believe is the "father of the Dreadnought."

    In fact, I found my way to this Forum because I tried to use a pair of mono blocks with my SDA SRS1.2s, only to learn (rather rudely, I might say) that you cannot use the standard interconnect with amplifiers that are non-common ground.

    Then, having built one for my SRSs, I read about better ones on this Forum, and I upgraded the one for the SRSs and began using the smaller one for my 1Cs. The amp with my 1Cs did not require an isolation transformer because it is a common-ground amp. But the Dreadnought improved the sound greatly. Now, I have also upgraded the Dreadnought for the 1Cs.

    It's a mod that is definitely worth the effort.

    Larry (of "Larry's Rings" fame) also builds great boxes for the toroidal transformer used in the Dreadnought.

  • I will definitely look into the Dreadnought upgrade for my 1C' . Thanks for the insight!

    Any chance that Larry is still making these rings? I’m in for a set for my 7B’s if he is!
