Next Tweak - External Cross-Over Upgrade (Passive)
System Strengths: WAF!-She hates the look, but loves the sound & after auditioning, voted for the 1.6s instead of the 12s we budgeted for! Magic of Maggies. Detail, Stage, the music just flowing from the front of the room. A long way from the ultimate perhaps, but it makes me smile a lot when I listen and that's what it's ALL about.
System Weaknesses: No Maggie 3.6s - Not that much WAF (yet!).

Every new tweak or system upgrade whets your appetite for the next one.

Amp has a vise grip on the low end, but a bit weak on the highs. TT is good for what it is, but way off the high performance end.
Video/HT System: None
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: RC Airplanes, Scouting with my boys, Mech Engr/Systems Architect (Hi Tech end)
