Oh I dont know about that. Just the part that over-laps with mine.

I am not defending him nor anyone -- only what I do, measure or hear.

These are not interchangeable. Correct: measure and hear (or not, thereof).

When we went from tube PAmps to SS, we noticed, by listening, that the bass was deeper, tighter, more accurate. Same effect occured when we used very thin speaker wires compared to thick (large AWG). Larger affected the bass ... deeper,louder etal.

So what do EE do? They measure the damn wire by itself and proclaim nothing there... small Rs. Cannot have any affect on the sound. If I stick a series Resistor in the speaker line(s) and the bass or other freq response areas sound affected..... what do the EE do? They take the resistor and measure it and claim it cannot do anything like what we heard.

Then some bright guy thinks maybe it is an intereraction with amp and speaker and Rs.... like maybe Damping Factor and output Z.

Time and time again and again this is played out every time someone does something and people hear a change. Never look at the whole... only the part.

Instead of being so narrow in view, how about figuring out why/how something simple could make a difference.

You're not talking about anyone I know.
