Don't you get this stuff in a car parts shop? That stuff is also used for repairing car rear window heating.

Ok, just back from holiday and received the parts i needed to repair this thing. I must say, i'm a bit dissappointed when comparing it with the SMGA.

The high range on the 1.6 is just not as sparkling as the SMGA (although better than on the 1.4). Is this correct?

I'm thinking of putting away the 1.6 in favor of the SMGa, but then I will be complementing the SMGa with a couple of subwoofers. Is that going to workout well? the SMGa will only go as low as 50 hz, a subwoofer is normally best crossed over under this frequency.

Other though i had was to just use the 4 speakers in a 5.1 setup (with a conventional speaker as center). Is this something that makes sense?

hmm there is just something about the SMGa that makes them sound nices.

But i think i'll make a 5.1 setup.... just need to have a center speaker. Thinking about getting a Exciter speaker and using a panel.... not sure if that will match well... both plane like speakers, but i'm guessing that the exciter is not going to be very swift.
