Bypassing Tekton Design's 4-10 amps for Parasound - Satisfying curiosity
How good is Tekton Design's choice of amp in the 4-10? Better read to the end of this article before ditching the Yung amp.
Seen above are the only terminals I now use from the Yung amp equipped in Tekton Design's 4-10. There were line level input terminals but I bypassed the amp inside the cabinet and connected the internal subwoofers to utilize these terminals instead of building a replacement plate.
I've decided to start photographing and logging my alterations in this project. I enjoy besides audio the cinema experience, therefore, plan to take things to another level.
The Tekton subwoofers replicate instruments such as percussions as accurately as I've heard in a system. However, there's more to want when it comes to cinema. That is non instrumental effects such as machine gun fire and explosions etc.
Over the course of the year I am moving two Tekton Design 4-10s to the 80hz-300hz range for those killer sternum shots when a .50 cal technical on the screen rolls up behind to lay down some cover fire. Low end duties will then be tasked to dual Tekton 21 inch subs, but I ain't there yet. Basically, I'll be setting out to reproduce what Tekton Design offers in the Brisance. The Brisance has one 18" sub and dual 8" midbass drivers to cover 20hz-350hz.
Because I wish to run the 4-10s to 300hz having to bypass the internal amplifier at least crossover wise is necessary. The onboard crossover can't be bypassed w/ a setting and the maximum low pass is 200hz.
Anyways, here's a close up of the wiring after I connected the speaker wires to utilize line level inputs built into the plate amp:
Live and learn, and now my curiosity has been satisfied.
