  1. And I thought you still had the parts on the woofer door connected So which were it?
  2. Have you hooked your amp directly to the woofer(s) now that everything is disconnected? Don't get too happy with the volume knob.
  3. If the insulation of voice coil wire has heated up to the point melting and shorting out some turns of the coil I would say "who the heck knows what that's supposed to sound like".
  4. And also do you have access to another meter? As @PrestonTom suggested perhaps yours is "out of cal" or just not accurate.
  5. So where does one go from here? If you think you have a partially shorted voice coil and you don't want to jump and buy a new one until you are certain. What about the woofer in the other cabinet? Is it reading the same?
  6. @Marvel found an old post from you that said Re of K33 woofer is 3.39 ohms. So is Douglas's reading too low? And how could that be? Shorted windings?
  7. Someone with more knowledge about what these woofers should read please jump in here. We know the voice coil is not open that's for sure and good news.
  8. Just be careful. Don't drop any molten solder on the cone Maybe protect it with a small towel or rag.
  9. Yes, if you are going to bypass all the crossover components.
  10. Well .... the inductor is in series with the voice coil and the capacitor is in parallel. So yes you SHOULD be able to read with those parts still attached. You should read the resistance of the voice coil and the inductor in series, so what guys around 5 to 8 ohms? @Deang?
  11. Pretty sure @capo72 means bypass even the parts inside the woofer chamber and go right to the woofer. And disconnect the parts inside which are a capacitor and an inductor. And you can also do as jimjimbo suggested while they're disconnected and measure the woofer voice coils.
  12. Just the other day I heard someone talking about the problems with euthanasia. And I said what's wrong with the youth in Asia?
  13. Can't measure useful information be running a square wave through a supposedly linear audio power amplifier? Whaddayatalkinbout? JEESH!
  14. Do you really think so? I would like to see the math. One things for certain the line from the dam won't fuse at 3 amperes.
  15. 40+ years in the electronics industry---YES THIS IS DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.
  16. Ah.....the thickness that will fuse at 3 amperes
  17. Yes banana plugs are a standard size + or - manufacturing tolerances of course. And you know those four flaps of metal contact that look like a peel of a banana(hence the name) can be gently pried out to give a tighter connection if necessary.
  18. Dang. Them look brand new
  19. Monoprice makes decent banana plugs as was alluded to earlier in this thread. And as an added bonus they mate right into the back of their pin type plugs so you can make a banana to pin adapter when needed. Rendezvous and docking.
  20. Not being one that will or can tell another person what they can and cannot hear (thanks @Mallette ) I would stiil love to do an ABX test with Jeffery on the 1 inch of 10 ga to 1 inch of 16 ga wire.
  21. So @parlophone1 we use the delay functions in the crossover to compensate for the positioning of of the drivers, we don't position the drivers to compensate for the delays of the crossover. I was a little confused by your question.
  22. @Chris A ? I would think using with a Xilica you could adjust delays such that you could place the 402 pretty much where ever on the Super MWM that you would like. Even to the point of some of the energy bouncing off the top of the bass cabinet instead of going out into the room (which is probably bad).
