Oh ok. I was eyeing the Pioneer VSX 522 to go with the Diamond 9.6, I won't be playing it loud and they will be placed in a small room - about 20 sqm. Do you think VSX 522 would do? I heard though, that power hungry speakers such as the 9.6 may damage receivers that have low wattage, is this any true?
baliktad po sir.
kung underpowered or overdriven ang amp, speaker po ang may tendency na masira kung humingi sya ng voltage/current beyong amp maximum capacity

Ahh ganun po ba sir, ok thanks.

Ok na kaya ang VSX 522 para sa Diamond 9.6? Ang pagkaka research ko kasi, ang Diamond 9.6 is 40W-200W, at ang VSX 522 ay 80 watts per channel. So hindi lang maximized ang speakers pero hindi naman po bibigay ang speakers in the long run?

the 9.6's are power hungry and would benefit a lot from ample amplification.  i've tried my 9.6 on an 80wpc kenwood reciever, it sounded like crap.  hooked it up on a 100wpc yamaha rxv-620 and it sounded better.  hooked to a pioneer sa-8900ii (80wpc) vintage integrated amp and it sounded much better.  hooked to a sansui [email protected] (90wpc) and the 9.6's sings..  haven't tried a pio vsx522 though..

if you are asking if it's safe, it is.. (just dont paly it too loud)
but it would sound much better with more powerful amps.. don't rely on spec sheets,they lie sometimes. (marketing strategy) still best to audition. trust your ears.

Buhayin ko lang itong thread na ito for those who are still loving their Diamond 9 Series :) and I like to share my repair and small modification with my Diamond 9's.
After more than 9 yrs the sound coming from the speakers suddenly got distorted and noticed some of the woofer's rubber surrounds got partially ripped off and what I did to prevent its "self destruction" is that I applied small amount of Mighty Bond Extreme w/c is impact resistant and more flexible and do not use the yellow one, it is brittle and turns white when dried, apply it around the rubber surround using a flat precision tool...





Allow it to dry


Install it back to its case






after a few days it will dry up like this


I did the same procedure with DFS surround speakers.
Rubber surround's flexibility and speaker performance won't be affected by glue as long as it is applied around the rigid area only.

Also upgraded ALL the stock laid-back silk dome tweeters to a more aggressive yet smooth as silk dome tweeters.
Got these from Amazon.com





Now they all sound great again and prevented the rubber surrounds from ripping apart.

Is there a way/ maintenance that will prevent this thing to happen to our wharfedale speakers? I heard this is common. Thanks.

You guys can buy Allen wrench per piece, not by set at To Suy or any other screw sellers. No pun intended.
