JoshT Posted February 18, 2001 Share Posted February 18, 2001 Ever since I bought my KLF 20s in June, 1999, I have wondered if I could tame the high end and strengthen the bass of the KLF 20s. I love the speakers, but at times felt the bass could be more authoritative and the upper mids a bit tamer. But overall I was always pleased. Also, I have read post after post about speaker cables here and elsewhere without anything really grabbing me. I ordered a pair of the MIT Terminator2 Biwire cables from AudioAdvisor a couple of weeks ago. Even at half off, they are around $200 a pair depending on length, and that doesn't include the ICONN connectors you have to buy. I got them for my bedroom system, which also sounds a bit "hot" at times, but the spades I ordered wouldn't fit the fat B&W binding posts. So, I figured, what the heck, I have to burn them in anyway, I'll try them on the KLF 20s until the new spades arrive. I hooked them up and was appalled by how bad they sounded. I'd been warned that MIT cables require a long burn in time, but was ready to send them back. The bass was stiff and weak and the mids and highs rough. Over the past two weeks, however, they have been totally transformed. The bass is now stronger than ever before with these speakers. It's amazing how they have changed. A friend who was over when we first hooked them up, and who had not been back since, came by today and was amazed to hear them. Anyway, I now find the speakers a bit warmer and the bass fuller and just as tight. I am still going to move these MITs into the bedroom system, because the lengths are too long for my Klipsch system. But I may order a shorter pair for the Klipsch. Too bad about the long burn in, and high cost, but has been worth it in my opinion. I'm interested in others' experiences with the same or different speaker cables. What are people using and what are the sonic qualities? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
