After taking out the thousands of allen head bolts holding these things together, I took the face frames in to be powder coated.

Modifying my Fusion tower speakers *pics*
12-20-2009, 11:08 PM #2
The 5 1/4" coax speakers and 6 1/2" components are wired in parallel from the factory. This means the coax speakers will begin to distort long before the components reach their full potential. I used Speakon 4-pole connectors and rewired the cans so that each speaker can be amped separately.

In order to make the new speakon connectors fit I had to make a bigger hole in the can. I thought I could just use my dremel, but the metal is soft and clogged the grinding wheel immediately. So I treated it like floor tile and scored it with a jigsaw and snapped off the "teeth" leaving very little to grind.

Next steps will be installing a 4x100 RMS amp and pulling new wires through the tower to get 4 wires to each side. I'll report back on the improvement in sound... I expect it to be fairly dramatic with the components able to get full power.

Nice work! I've got those same towers. Will be interesting to hear the results from changing up the set up. Good luck.
Will you keep the tweeter on the 5 1/4?Sold my Moomba. Currently boat whoring.

Thanks, Jeff! Yes, I will be keeping the tweeters on the 5 1/4" coax.
