    @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!

    Ya i know doesn't mean i cant hope. Im already using h nut but would upgrade if given a chance.
  • Hi there all polkies, I have owned polka 1.2 TL for many years with some mods done. I need to still do Larry's rings as well as crossovers so I also need new upgraded boards. I don't know if these are still available, and if so then by whom? If anyone can help a old polkie with most mods done would most appreciate yall. I live in BC Canada so parts arrive slowly 😭 but polks make me feel better quickly.

    Larry is not making rings. Use Hurricane nuts instead.
    Member westmassguy is selling the Gimpod SDA boards.

    How about Larry's Arcs? Wouldn't be so expensive to ship and would be installable without bending for the Passive.
