You will probably see less benefit since your speakers are tweeter-midrange where as the super 7 is mtm.   

OK, here's my quick assessment -- 

I lifted the rear of my speakers about one-half inch and used Barbra Streisand's, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" as my test track. Immediately, the imaging was improved, and when Neil Diamond cuts in, his voice is much deeper. No question about it. I said to myself, "that's gotta be all in my head." So I went back and forth. The difference was clear. Then I put on a few tracks that I'm more familiar with and can't say definitively it made a difference, but I didn't go back and forth with those songs.  I heard enough to keep the rear of the speakers slightly elevated.

So can I feed the mono signal into one RCA in or do I need a Y adaptor?

You can feed it into one. If for some reason, you can't get enough gain on the sealed sub with one input, You can use a Y adapter into two of the subs inputs and get an additional 6dB of gain.

Cool.  I didnt realize your speakers were that tall either.  I think their lack of an upper woofer threw me off a bit.

Thanks, mlundy57

Also IIRC,   only  one of the   inputs  has the auto on circuitry.  This may have changed as the amps have evolved.

As my amps are on 24/7 it shouldn't matter.

Hey Guys,

Still WIP, the newborn starts looking like a S7.

Looking at the NX MTM dimensions for the top section, if one of you can help with that I will greatly appreciate.

Super 7 owners who have rebuilt their passive crossovers -  I am working on building new crossovers for my speakers. Mine are all original parts. Wanted to ask what type and gauge wire you used for your build on both midrange and treble circuits.

Thanks

I used  Neotech UPOCC solid core 16 awg   in teflon.  Used it right from  tube connectors  all the way through and  up to drivers.

I know  a couple others  who  done similar  with the   Neotech Silver/Gold blend.   I have not had the chance to compare them  though
