Sda-2 have very little bass
I picked up a set of the original sda-2. The ones with 3 mw's and 2 tweeters in each. They sound horrible. Im not sure if somthing is wrong with them or thats just how they are. Placment is not perfect as they are in front of my setup but ive listened to a ton of speakers in this same position and have never heard any like this. The seals are the best ive ever seen, if you hold the pr in the 3 mids will stay out as long as you hold it (well over a minute at the least thats about how long i held it). All drivers seem to be working. When doing the battery test i get two midwoofers pushing out and the sda midwoofer pulling in from the vacume. Im not sure how to test phase of the sda mw. The drivers dont look like they have ever been removed before, i pulled all 3 of them from one cabinet and they are all mw6600x. Ive never seen one of these mw. I know these are not a great example of sda's but there is no way they left the factory this bad. I guess i can test some capacitors in the xover but somthing just doesn't seem right. They sound very bright, but mainly because there is harldy any bass. I ran a a bunch of test tones and they move a lot just very little low end output. When playing it seems like when i disconnect the ic the speakers do make a little more low end (wich seems right to me as the sda driver is out of phase with the other channel wich is close in signal) does this sound familar to anyone. I didnt see any glue on the magnets of the drivers i pulled so dont think the magnets were glued on backwards. Also the 2 cabinets make more bass than one and i reversed the leads on one speaker and the bass was even less so im pretty sure the cabinets themselves are in phase. Any help would be awsome.
