    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Hey Joe, no problem there, was not interested in saving $, just what you suggested mattered to me. On the Ultra5s, a credit card thickness gap was suggested by them, so that they do not touch the speakers. Are you saying your footer should be flush against speaker, so that is why you say the...

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Hey Joe and Steve, would the adapters i use with the Ultra 5s work the same as what you would supply? What are you referring to when you say the dish extends out from speaker? Are you saying the 1.5s footers fit under speaker, but the dish that the footer sits on extends beyond speaker? Also...

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Thanks Joe, I am always appreciative of your honesty, even when it does dash my hopes.:) So much for trying to understand and uncover a kernel of info on the mode of operation of your footers. After what was said about the complexity of Steve's speakers, and mine, being from same...

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Hey Joe, where you going with that footer in your hand? :>) Oh ye footer maestro, do you concur that my speakers would probably get just about as much improvement with the 1.0s or .08s as Steve did with 1.5s, since mine are lighter and less complex than Steve's? Or are the 1.5s going to...

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Intrigued I am, Steve. Where Joe speaks about your Wilson Alexandria X2 loudspeakers because they were heavy, big, ported, ultra-sensitive to change and made from a phenol-based cabinet material along with the complexity of the driver array is mind boggling with respect to footer design gave me...

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    Hey Steve, I have been waiting to see if Joe and son would come up with footers for speakers like was mentioned in forum. Are there problems that were not expected? Are they working on it or did problems arrive? Thanks marc

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    Hey Kal I had seen that link in the article. Graphs are okay but give me that ole time religion, listening instead :=) LL21 I had read the same and like you noted it. All I know is the improved timing from the CS footers has awakened me to just how vital timing is vs frequency. The Stones...

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    Steve about 2 weeks ago I had read the latest Absolute Sound and an article about Gayle Sanders and his new speaker struck a chord. I have been mulling over what exactly was happening with the CS2 footers. One ,for instance, is what I am able to hear that I could not with previous footers that...

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    Hot damn Steve, I now know how Gollum (from Lord of the Rings) felt about his precious. I did a lot of talking to myself and precious since placing the Centerstage2 footers under my Devialet unit. The extreme marked improvement, after nine and a half days in my case, due to replacing Ultra 5s...

    Doctor's Orders-Part Two-The New Listening Room Of Steve Williams

    Hi Steve your issues with the JL-113 subs reminded me of my many trials with my 2 JL-113s and coming to the same end. I had talked and written to Wilson, JL Audio and also REL with advice from all helpful but still not right. I had earlier tried something JL Audio said to do and that was put a...

    Center Stage Feet have expanded applications

    Hi Steve, did you have ultra 5s under your speakers? If so did you change them out and use the Center Stage footers? If so was there any negatives, or was there improvement only? Thanks!

    Wilson Audio Maintenance

    I agree that replacing resistors, a la Debbie, is logical only because she has access to many through Wilson at little to no cost to her.

    Wilson Audio Maintenance

    Hi Debbie, since you change resistors often and you already replaced footers with Stillpoints, have you tried or considered testing different brands of resistors? You will be surprised I bet.

    Wilson Audio Maintenance

    Only once did a resistor fail and that was one of the Duelunds. The resistor showed signs of over-heating and finally stopped working with no damage to tweeter. The 3 times previous were with the Caddocks that did not fail, but the tweeters blew needing replacement.
