Easy Magnepan MMG tweaks?

I've got my Magnepan MMG speakers on Sound Anchors stands which sit on Barry Diament's isolation platforms. They sound great but I'm digging for more easy and worthwhile tweaks which don't require soldering.

Has anyone tried the Maggie Quasi Ribbon Rear Wave Attenuator? I read a couple threads on the subject here that suggest they are best suited for small rooms where the speakers are close to the side or rear walls. I have plenty of room around the speakers so maybe I shouldn't bother?


I was considering a pair of HiFi Tuning fuses, but I wonder if I would be better off with something that removes the fuse altogether? Is there a plug-in item that will do that? In what type of scenario would I be risking damage to the speakers if I don't use a fuse?

The system sounds much better with the 1 ohm resistor in place, so a high quality bridge like the Cardas or Mapleshade probably won't work. I tried making a very short bridge using Belkin PCOCC speaker wire and it sounded the same as the stock bridge. What about a high quality 1 ohm resistor?
