The EQ (equalization) is incorporated into the electronic circuitry within the amp. Removal (or changing) requires tools and knowledge of electronics.

The EQ is tailored for use with the Monsoon satellites. Some alternate speakers will work, make music and may be satisfying, others may not.

Thanks ED So what your saying is if you do not have any knowledge of electronics like in my case, just keep trying different satellite speakers
Until you get something that sounds good and you can turn most of the way up with out the amp-sub cutting out.


Ok in saying this ED Planet said that the planar ribbons are 4 ohm
when Iam trying NORMAL speakers in order to work their Best
should I go for 4 ohms or will they sound just as good with 6 or 8 ohms,
and also keeping the wattage at about 30,


Thanks Reno

If you are interested i do have a set of the previous gen (not so much cost cutting) panels i might be able to sell. They would work as intended by Monsoon

Hi Planet when you say previous gen do you mean they look the same with the same out put
And also I live in AUSTRALIA Victoria .post code 3338 ,I wonder how much it would cost all up Things are a bit tight hear at the moment .
But it sounds like a great idea I feel a bit privileged I just only joined this Forum

The same panels essentially but a bit better built. Bare wire connectors IIRC.

I'd have to dig them out and figure post. And these things have some value.

I donít know about the Gods planet but we connected the Wharfedale,s
Melton 2
Type : Acoustic suspension Volume : 34L Drivers : 1x 30cm 1x 5cm mid/high Nominal impedance : 6 Ohm Power handling : 30W (DIN) Frequency response : 45Hz...17Khz (Ī 3dB) Crossover : 1,5Khz Dimensions

And it sounds UN believable .I donít know if the original panel can bet it .
We have never heard of these Monsoon 9 in AUSTRALIA ,I just picked them up at a Market with out satellites ,it cost me $20 I believe
Ed LaFontaine has some on his PC that must mean something
Are these in the Bose range Hi fi units

I would suggest that the Monsoons were the best computer speaker systems built (short on much more expensive exotica)
