Good practice is to use a stop plug on the outlet,this stops the issue experienced.
I also concur that the valve is faulty but they are stiff to close fully,don't be afraid to give it a handful.

I had similar trouble with one of mine when it was new, the things take a lot of muscle to operate I guess. Glad it was simple!

Mine "snaps" as well. It's the white one also, brand new. Just assumed/still assume this is normal

even better! But keep using the end cap on it. It is safer that way because sometimes you might for example forget to close the valve rolleyes.gif

Hey I see you painted the RAM bracket also. Was it as annoying to tape off as it was for me? smile.gif I didn't have a razor blade frown.gif.

you did a better job that I did on that painters tape mate. Looks gorgeous. Was not that bad to get the ram painted. The problem was the often small pieces flaking in the process of taking the painters tape out. Now I learned my lesson to give proper cure time for the paint...

I'm gonna get a pair of 683S2 myself before the end of the year, but I reeeally need to start focusing on my PC again... which will eventually include water cooling (running on all Noctua air at the moment).

683 are an amazing set of speakers man, I would definitely recommend them. Don't get the 684v2 though, because they are much smaller than 684v1 (what I have) and the same price iirc. My 684s, 686s and htm62 are a great set of speakers for under $2k, I wouldn't trade them for anything quite honestly. Like I said before though, I'll be upgrading to 683s, 685s and htm61 (or maybe the c series if I'm lucky) but I'll still keep the older set for another room or something.
