"Buy Chinese. Bury freedom" - agreed, keep buying Chinese, support Authoritarianism..

The NFB possibility,if the NFB was not connected wouldn't I hear that tremendous big boomy "wide" -sound as well? I have heard this amp with it disconnected, and it has a very noticeable "big" wide bass-y sound, I do not currently detect that. If the NFB was the problem, would I hear this? I will go through that loop to be sure..

Now your second idea is intriguing.."oscillating above the audio range" You said it can ruin a tweeter, would there be anything I could hear or detect, that would indicate it's killing my tweeter? I do not own a scope..

What would cause this oscillation and is there any way I can test for it?

I should mention I am not a "super tech" so a really involved explanation might go over my head :)

thanks for your reply,
