In Reply to: Can I fry my speakers with too much power? posted by hinduclient on November 15, 2003 at 10:20:52:
i was warned by bedini elecrtonics that my amplifier could smoke the speakers whith no warning no signs of clipping one of his customers tried to sue him after smoking his infinity`s,,just heresay though ive had sacraficial speaker just to see it only disturbed the neibors ..zman
when i was in the army,a guy in the barracks smoked a pair of very large Altecs with a Phase Linear amp.what a show!
increadibly loud,for one thing.it was a long time ago,but i seem to remember them getting somewhat distorted,but not as much as you might imagine(or it could have been my ears bleeding).suddenly,smoke just started rolling out from behind the speakers.very exiting!
the guy took them back the next day saying they were defective.:-0
