Why do folks take the covers off of their speakers?



Nothing great, I was in the process of setting stuff up but a lot went wrong... I had a vintage NAD but it broke so I'm just using a vintage Sony atm, not very safe to use either it seems to drive up to 230w 4-16ohms. I have a Pro-Ject III turntable but my friend is borrowing it atm so I'm using his crappy Denon DP-200USB. The speakers are Wharfedale 9.1's I was aiming for Quad 11L's but couldn't afford them when it came to it, these will do I suppose : / Honestly I rather enjoy them and they're not as bad as I thought they would be. What makes things worse though is I gave my sound card to a friend because I'm expecting to order an E-MU 0404 but I haven't got it yet... so onboard I try not to use the PC as much as possible though, I kinda believe even in a hippy kinda way that the less electronics the better ^^

Some folks think that they look prettier without the grills, sometimes if the foam/fabric on them is very thick you can get some extra treble sparkle by removing it. Personally, I keep mine on (because they are carved wood from Sansui and are gorgeous, and because I know I'd put something through the woofers without them).

I wouldn't worry too much about the overpowering - remember, the amplifier only puts out as much power as is required for a given input signal and requested output level. Your 9.1s should be able to get plenty loud within their 20-100w suggested amplifier rating, so it is unlikely that you will turn it up to the levels that would make the Sony output closer to its peak power for anything more than very short bursts.

Yeah, I've never turned it up past about 1.5 I'm just hoping someone doesn't come along and turn it up by accident.

Hey Enigma - the PCB kits for that amp, the Millet Starving Student, are all sold out now... They used to be sold by head-fi member Tomb off his website, beezar.com.

It is a really nice headphone amp for not a lot of money. Some have modified it slightly for speaker usage, as it can put out a watt or two, but the distortion increases greatly as the power output increases so I wouldn't recommend it.

If you want (and can find the tubes), building a point-to-point version off the original schematics is not too hard. That is what I did long before the PCB kit was released. There are pics around here somewhere.
