He runs MA-2s. In a case like this

for best results the amp should be placed behind the speaker and the speaker cables be kept under a foot in length.

We had a guy use dual Ocos (a cable marketed by Sumiko that was a sort of coaxial speaker cable) and he ran 20 feet of cable to his Tympanis. Plenty of volume, but no bass! I had him move his amps (MA-2s) to the rear of the speakers (with the rear of the amp facing the rear of the speaker) and had him install some 6" speaker jumpers made of 8 Gauge copper. The bass came back in spades.

Making sure the connections are tight helps too!
