phase
« on: August 28, 2016, 05:15:23 AM »
Read that the phase is inverted in the FP 3. also read elsewhere that the speaker terminals should be changed is such a scenerio.  My pre runs into the sex amp. Advice please.

Thanks,

The stage is wider and better low end, but less in the highs. I tried it after posting, which means about an hour or so. Will know by tomorrow. ...its 10pm now maybe some settling is as I m am using anti cables which are too freendly to move around.

Just for clarification, this would be swapping each pair of speaker cables where they connect to the amp.

There is enough inconsistency (at least in the albums I own) in recordings that I stopped worrying about this years ago.  (Also, in multi-driver loudspeakers, often one driver will be out of phase with the other(s))

It's been nearly a day. It does sound much better. The sound is more relaxed and generally good across the spectrum.  more than I expected.
