Guest bk Posted July 31, 2004 Report Share Posted July 31, 2004 Today I found a pair of Model III at a junk store. (They have 8" woofers and peerless tweeters in relatively large vinyl cabinets.) Brought them home, cleaned the pots, and connected a low-power modern (black face) Luxman amp. Well, let's just say I was underwhelmed. Nasally vocals and almost no bass.I was ready to post a message asking what was wrong, but I decided to first try them with a different amp. Hooked up a Sony receiver that has more power than the Luxman but is inferior in every other way. Man, I'm glad I tried this. What a huge difference! Now I'm hearing something like I expected.So, my questions for those of you with more experience: Am I correct that Cizeks benefit from watts, maybe because they were designed at a time when power was king? What was the hot amplifier to hook them to back in the day? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
