Possible flaky crossover component
I have a pair of rebuilt Thors into Stott’s excellent Small Thors. I’ve got into Chinese valve amps recently and the first integrated amp I tried blow one of my millennium tweeters – no problem my amp supplier replaced said tweeter. Currently I’m happy using Ming Da pre/mono blocks but I’ve just had a lads session and put in a large (physically) Dussum V8i 250 watts integrated amp – yikes one speaker went crazy with lots of “metal clicking” sounds at loud but not silly volume.
Now this hasn’t occurred with my Musical Fidelity X series amps, Bel Canto’s and various other valve/SS amps. The first comment was something’s wrong with the crossover?? But why does this only occur with certain amps!
The crossover is the prebuilt Madisound premium version.
