clipping was a result of having too little power in your amp, not too much?
I am pretty sure either my power amp is blown, or both my speakers. I tried running again my B&Ws through my amp and it was working, then added the Klipsch as the center, still worked. But then...snap, shut off. Damn. Now when I run even two B&Ws alone off the amp they either distort, or it shuts off. When I run the same speakers off my Marantz directly (not the Klipsch, I learned my lesson the first time I blew one from running off my receiver only...long story), they sound fine and nothing bad happens.
So yeah, I'm wondering if the tweeters could be blown, or a capacitor, or one or two woofers in both KL-650s. Although, for a tweeter to be blown, doesn't it just stop working? Or screetch? Can tweeters still provide some sound, even though they are busted? Someone told me it's almost always a compression driver that must be blown, if a tweeter's blown you'd know it (holding your ears). This is not what I hear. I've tried nearly every permutation of gear and channels to try and figure out what's wrong, including using different power outlets and using the wall jack directly rather than through a cheap power bar like I was (limits max amps going through to the amp?)
//sigh. I just want my mega system back online. Game of Thrones is tonight
guess I'll have to go to a friend's place.
