RE: T-IVa ribbons

"The T-IVa is crossed over lower." All else being equal, is that more or less protective of it's ribbon? I've blown my ribbon's 2.5 ohm fuses (mostly by unintentionally switching to a source set to play too loud) dozens of times. When the original Radio Shack was still in business I bought enough packs of both 2.5 and 3.0 ohm which hopefully would have lasted my lifetime, but I was forced into buying even more from eBay.

Fortunately my IV-A remains the same as the day my Magnepan dealer delivered them ~40 years ago, wired them up and played them. (Something I think he did to protect himself from possibly being accused of providing a damaged product.) I moved everything including those IV-As to my present dwelling 28 years ago.

When you live right 'nothing can possibly go wrong.'
