Good point.
I'm thinking my wife's voice might start at 16khz and that's why stuff just doesn't sink in.
It's not really my fault.

Some Magnepan owners claim that bypassing the fuse and going 'solid wire,' makes their speakers sound better.

So they bypass the fuse.

Crank it up, get some clipping and poof! Your tweeters are toast.

There's a reason that Magnepan puts fuses in.
