so...mine arrived earlier today; I ordered 2 pair for my biwired VonSchweikert VR4's with upgraded drivers. After putting them onto all 4 negative terminals, I let them run in for about an hour and a half before really sitting down to listen.My impression was disappointment, my all solid state system was not nearly as resolving or detailed, in fact the highs sounded smooth but muddy, as did the bass. wondering...could these things work differently on all solid state systems ( seems that many of you are running at least some tubes )? Are the VS speakers built differently?Next, I removed the ge's from the tweeter/mid modules and the clarity returned, albeit, slightly more edgy?digital? but definitely more enjoyable...after a short listen, I hooked the now spare ge's to the neg terminals on my Krell amp, on the outputs that carry the low frequency signals to the bass module of the VR4's, which still had the ge's. Voila! Nice! bass seemed to become more defined and some grunge and bloat was removed, the system seems to 'swing" with excellent pace and rhythm.I guess time will tell...in a few days I might try reconnecting them to the upper speaker modules again and have another listen.Anybody have any thoughts???
I could.... but, since they do seem to have worked in a positive way ( re: Voila!) on my bass modules, I think I'll just keep them but really gentleman...I was hoping for some more enlightening words of wisdom
Robin,I have been folllowing this thread very closely as I awaited my shipment of the ge's...and I read of your experiences, which only made me more anxious to get mine into my system.So...after hooking them up today, and not experiencing the audio nirvana I was expecting ( because I have been following this thread very closely) based on yours and others reports, I wondered what it was that might be causing this apparent discrepancy? And, reached out for some intelligent discussion.... And yes, I also understand that there is a break-in period...but many of the previous posts both here and on other sites, spoke of a virtually immediate positive impact...again making me question what it might be, specific to my system...
Agreed, they are nice here too. They are very nice!! Now, we'll see if that changes at all. No harsh brightness, yet. They sound very musical and add even more presence, I will call it, and I would say improves things top to bottom.I have one pair connected to the - speaker terminals via a banana plug on the -tweeter post. My speakers are Bi-wireable. I do not Bi-wire. Check my system for any details. I will post more as changes happen.D
It seems these are very system dependant in terms of how they behave.
What happened was I was inverting phase on the amp end.
