Default Possible Cornscala Problem?

Hi Guys, I bought a pair of Cornscala D's About a month ago and I personally thought they sounded like crap. I have been fiddling with them ever since. I think I might have found something that might be causing the horrid sound but I thought I'd ask you guys to see what you think? The other day I stumbled upon the fact that a magnet sticks real good to the screws on the terminal strips. Tonight I decided to do some more investigating to see if the buss bars in the terminal strips were also steel. They were not but I did find that the strips leading from the connection terminals to the wires running to the crossover are also steel. Would this cause the sound to be crappy? I'm pretty sure I've read in forums that running your signal through steel is a very bad idea. So what's your take on it? I've include a picture for your reference.

I doubt that's it, I've never had trouble with those. Have you tried measuring the frequency response? Just a simple on-axis measurement would tell you if everything's hooked up right, and in the correct polarity etc.

I hesitate to say it's 1 million times better but now that all steel has been removed they sound like they should, It was a night and day difference. They sound like Klipsch's now.

Thanks Fpitas, I'm very happy with them now. Now that the Klipsch forum is back up and running I took the info over there because it's a more appropriate place for it.

The steel was not the problem, the bi-metallic corrosion you eliminated was.
