    Icon12 Love my Fi BTL 15, but look what happened

    Here is what the wire looks like after coming loose from the terminal, notice what appears to be burn marks left on the speaker as well. This was after the first few minutes of use... Regardless it still sounded pretty good running off one voice coil at 2 ohms Any one else ever seen anything like this before?

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    man i had that happen to two of my tensils. It was horrible sautering(sp) those things in the IDQ basket, but all prevailed(sp). I didnt know what happened because it was gradual and would stop moving every now and then but i figured that was the problem and fixed it. it seems like that would be easy. and sorry i cant spell

    uh yeah...Same parts.

    small variations in the motors...and aside from the coils.

    Softparts are identical...assuming you got quad stiffs on your MT.

    It's more of a QC thing. If the leads are soldered too short then they're just plain soldered too short. Also the tensils on a BTL are larger than those on an MT. IIRC.

    Unless lots of people are sabotaging their BTL's in the same exact manner.

    *I'm sure it will be taken care of though.*

    Believe me...I put a BTL through HELL...I never had a problem like this.


    To the OP...what kind of amp, box, and what ohm load are you running the amp at?

    Re: Love my Fi BTL 15, but look what happened

    more than a few people have burned through MT leads...thats why scott upgraded the lead on the BTL to a heaver tensil.

    extensive hands on experience with both drivers
