    Daft question, Jamie. Did you notice any change to your speakers performance when you changed the Binding posts?

    Ok. Ta.

    I was using some crap cable as jumpers due to the original spring Terminals having 2mm access only. As soon as I removed them and used the new terminals, the sound massively improved. Just wondered how much was down to the crap cable and the new terminals. As you say, better terminals providing better connections could make a difference.

    If anyone is interested, I have started a Project "The Yamaha NS-1000 Updated"

    This is using the excellent Original Mid dome, as I couldn't find an alternative, with a 12" Scanspeak Woofer which goes a lot deeper in a similar size sealed box and the Peerless HDS Tweeter. The speakers will use the Hypex DSP as crossover.

    There was a distinct lack of interest in my last few postings so I haven't bothered putting it up here.

    You can follow it on my Blog here: http://www.jkwynn.co.uk/YamRev_HTML/YamRev_Thumbs.html

    My active Yamaha has strayed so far away from the original, that I have started a separate project for an active 3-way.

    Jamie123 - If your looking for a concise version of my mods to the passive stock crossover, check out my summing up on my thread, post #253 here:
