    Make sure you donít tilt the speakers beyond a few degrees. The omniís could damage. Try to keep the speaker as upright as possible. Be very careful of the midrange and tweeter. No touch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Welcome to the forum. What type of power cords and power conditioners are you using? Have you run dedicated lines? If you havenít already, integrating both of these ideas will give you tremendous gains in your present system.
