RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Sorry Lucien it probably sounds like we are not being helpful but I do not think any of us have ever come across your problem before, and since it is impossible for you to demonstrate the phenomena to us, I doubt we are ever going to be able to offer really constructive help beyond random conjecture. Internet forums are good for solving some things remotely but not others.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Thank you MF. you mean that it would help you to actually "hear" the speakers? 

I was reading the other day about EMI and EMP elctromagnetic interference/pulse. Do you think it can be related to that?

I have a general question: which part of the speaker can cause the sound to become as i describe it? (Hollow, deep vocals, gap between low end and midrange, muffled and not extrovert.) 

thanks a lot for understanding

Physical damage caused by being played too loud by low-powered amps that are being pushed beyond their clipping-points.

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Thanks MF.

i have set up a meeting with an audio engineer for later this week.

over the phone he suggested that the crossover of the unit MIGHT be the reason, and that based on how i described the sound to him. 

I understood what you said earlier : "Physical damage caused by being played too loud by low-powered amps that are being pushed beyond their clipping-points.", but what i actually meant was that which other part (than the speaker (baffle)) can be the reason to such a sound? for example, the DAC, crossover, board etc. ( i'm not expert, so appologies if i am not employing the corret sound terminology)

Let me know your opinion on that.

 

Regards

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

Dear All posters:

i would like to thank you all for your previous responses.

today i am going to purchase a home cinema from b&w including the cm10 and others..

I hope that i wont face the same problem that i had for the previous years..

In light of that, and before i take any further steps, i would like to know if anyone of you had came across anything related to my case during this time?

I would highly appreciate any further diagnosis or recommendations to avoid and diagnose my issue.

 

Best regards,

 

Lucien

RE: Mysterious Problem - 12 Ipod docks damaged

he suspected that it was the crossover thats beeing damaged, alhough he's not sure why.

he also suggested that it might be due to high bit rate and excess voltage, although he's not pretty sure cz what im playing through is the universal mp3 format.
