Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: when the going gets weird --


Pretty cute. 'Glad to see you finally cleaned up your listening room.

18 AWG times two is too small for your amp to speaker run. Negatively effects overall system's transfer efficiency, and bass response.

Run your cables direct to the diaphragm, not to those SILLY press-to-fit stock ALTEC 802 connectors. Wonder Solder them. Same for the 15 inch woofer, Wonder solder your wiring direct to the terminals holding the Woofer's voice coil wires.

From your crossover, use doubled - up ( paralleled ) 12 AWG to each woofer's polarity. ( the green wires in the photo ) NO press-to-fit / mechanical connections to woofer. Cost effective wire choice : M22759/11 12. Make 'em Robert W. Fulton lengths - multiples, or divisors, 57 1/8th inches.

My blue wires are 14 AWG, doubled - up between all crossover components, and single runs, Fulton lengths, to each 802 polarity m22759/11 14.

Let me know please, what you hear, and HOW that sounds to you. Have FUN.
