HOLY COW!

It all came together tonight and it sounds GREAT.

Had a little speaker with Dayton Neo and four NSB's. I had been listening to it for a few days on the Aleph. Sounded like poo in full range no tweet and even worse with a cross.

I broke out the MOX active project I completed a year ago, all the time with the 4 channel Aleph in mind. 10 watt side to the tweet and the 40 on the midwoofs.

The results were UNBELIEVABLE. Fantastic clarity and control.

GO ACTIVE
GO "A"

Thanks for the help!

Could anyone point to a thread where the "lightbulb trick" is explained? I did some searching, but didnt find anything usefull.
A short instruction here would be just fine too

You don't really need the light bulb Trick but if you want to use it any ways. YOU put the light bulb in line with the ac power cord.. need a drawing ?

Hi steenoe, it seems like a good idea to me, looks pretty cheap as well.

Roger that...

In series with the hot on the AC supply. Learned about it here. Evidently it greatly reduces the volume of smoke on funky startups.

Jason's right about that. There's usually something between the new amp and the light pole outside that will give up!

I'm sure a lot of people get just a little gunshy when they first flick the switch on their new baby. It "takes the worry out of being close".
