John wanted a pair of 3-way speakers and wasn't at all concerned about the finish. He just wanted great performance at a reasonable price.
After a great deal of discussion, we agreed that in his case, the V3's in basic black were the ticket.
Here are John's V3's...
After John received his speakers, he called to say there was a problem. There was some significant distortion in the bass region in louder passages of the classical music he like to listen to. Of course, we heard no distortion prior to shipping.
So I first suspected shipping damage to the crossovers. But after checking it out, John reported that the distortion was in both speakers. This had me quite concerned.
After a great deal of long-distance trouble-shooting, John hooked up an old amp he had laying around. No distortion whatsoever. The problem was in his amp.
Once he got that sorted out, John told me the speakers sounded absolutely wonderful and he was thoroughly enjoying the music.
A new amp from Frank VanAlstine is in production and as soon as it arrives, John should be in heaven.
Happy listening, John!
