RL 1.5s arrived today...

Can you say Bubble Wrap?

Here's hoping they're keepers because there is no way I'd ever come close to replicating the factory wrap job.

Anyone know of an online source for the tweeter resistors? It looks like I'll need some different values and I don't want to mess with series/parallel combos. Thanks!

Roger

Roger,

You liked the buble wrap, We've tried every other way to ship these. Since the buble wrap, we've had none damaged. It works.

Don't get me wrong, the speakers were very nicely packed and arrived in perfect shape. There's just no way I could do as nice a job.

About the resistors: yes, I got the pack. I just need something in between 10 and 16 ohms (10's a bit too steely and 16's a little too dull). Thanks.

You need to give the whole speaker+resistor thing some burn-in time Grin

Roger,

  Let the tweeters break in a bit, they'll smooth right out. Then you can play with the resistors a bit more.

Hmmm.  I use 100 ohm resistors on my well broken in tweeters!   ???  I do sit in near field in a small room and they're too forward otherwise.

I have gotten most of my resistors from Radio Shack on line.
