New Forum Member - MG-2.5/R questions
New forum member here... just last night, I got my Maggies (MG-2.5/R) set back up after a 10-year hiatus with burst ribbons. They were brand new in ~1989 from Clark Music in Latham, NY. I bought the replacement ribbons from White Bear Lake last week and got them going last night. New Emotiva XPA-200 (240W/ch into 4 ohms) amp is on the way... I got the $339 2014 Holiday pricing.
Man, the Maggies still sound truly awesome after 25 years (even with only my Sony receiver driving them until the new Emotiva gets here). I apparently do not have the de-lamination problem as others have experienced (I have absolute zero buzzing), but I don't know if that problem pertains to my model... so my questions are:
1) Do my MG-2.5/R's have the potential for de-lam of the wires from the mylar as other models have shown? (I presume same bonding/adhesion process as other models)
2) I have read comments from time to time about the crossover quality in some Maggies... does my model have a decent crossover, or should I consider rebuilding it? What's wrong with the original crossovers that have caused some owners to lament? (i.e., design? component quality?)
3) What are some of the main problems experienced by Maggie owners that I should be looking out for as I take my babies through their paces these next couple of months?
Thanks in advance!
