Was wondering if it would be easy to bi-wire the Bozak B-4000 speakers I have? I have no experience with doing that but it was a thought while listening to them today. Don't even know if the process would be worth it in the sound results,
Rudy Bozak must be spinning in his grave at such blasphemy. Bi-amp your Symphonies. Bi-wiring them is a waste of time. I owned a pair of Concert Grands for several years. Got tired of moving them and such because of their size. Still regret selling them.
As in running a separate Wires .. From the Same Amp... To each driver in the speakers?
Religious topic that.. based on erroneous assumptions and driven by delusion.
But Hey! fill your boots trying.
Modding a crossover to accept bi-wire is generally a pretty easy job, and the results can be surprising. I'm pretty sure most Bozak crossovers used a number of electrolytic caps, which, if original, are decades past their sell-by date. If that's the case with yours, replacing the 'lytics will make a huge difference.
If you do try bi-wiring, try it with the wire pairs kept separated by an inch or two for most of their run. Some say (I'm one of them) that physical separation is required to get the better low-level detail that bi-wiring can give you.
"A man need merely light the filaments of his receiving set and the world's greatest artists will perform for him." Alfred N. Goldsmith, RCA, 1922
Thanks yes I had the crossovers rebuilt a few months after I bought the speakers much needed. Ah sometimes I guess I just get tiered of the speakers and want to move to something different but the size and weight of these speakers makes that a problem. I will tweek the location and few other things.
Tired of Bozak Symphonies? Are you serious?
If you get tired of the speakers, change the amp! ;)
Yes K I am in the process if you live in Baltimore Maryland and know a really good person who works on vintage tube amps hit me up with the info, that is the only thing slowing me down with taking the Pilot SA-260 out and replacing it with another one of my amps. you are correct in you suggestion.
You know you can bi-wire when you have 2+'s and 2-'s with a jumper connecting the + and - input terminals.
