A lot of noise ends up in the tweeters.......also the low frequent from rectifiers etc....which have some "nasty" overtones that is very audible in the tweeter.

I will think about the 8 ohm :-) ......but I also want to hear the "pling" sounds from guitar strings etc....

The ACA's are back on the shelf now but they did a very good job.

It can also be a dangerous exercise to put ear only few cm from dome if a bad spike suddenly got into the may cause permanent ear-damage :-)
Those having +105 dB horn may be even more dangerous.....

Have you checked your hearing at high frequencies using test-CD or generator?
I can hear 12 kHz but 16kHz seems to be almost gone.....
Maybe tweeters are "overrated" for middage or above people......

Amp is now fully assembled with top cover on and both channel showed 20.08 VDC at the test point after warm-up.
Will conclude that problem has been solved. Also tonight both channels was very quiet (and equal).
After experiment with passive pre I amp back using active (it always ends up that way even that first listening impression is very good using passive pre but after a while.....something is missing).

passive pre is important reference

good quality preamp must have same amount of details, but also bringing improved dynamics

if both of these aren't there, preamp eeznoogood
