    Triplanar bloating bass solution?

    Hi
    I have 2 triplanars one on sp 10 the other a Monaco 1.5

    I noted one had much clearer bass than the other

    One with the good bass had two counterweights close to pivot point
    The other with the flabby bass one mid shaft

    I replaced the one counterweight with two close to pivot point

    Viola! Explosive tight, tuneful clear deep bass

    This is a recommendation for all triplanar owners ....enjoy

    This is great info. Can you post some photos? It would be nice to see the difference between these two counterweights.

    I never used mine. Maybe with the damping fluid in it the whole mechanism is damped...and you won't have the same outcome I had. Audiogon has a thread where top ten triplanar tweaks. Another is using little o rings for weight on the anti skating arm vs the metal weight...
