I am new to the forum and this topic may have been covered in the past. I did a search but came empty, so I am going to ask anyone with a Shiva if they can help. I read in the Avatar White Paper dated back in 1999 about a resistively damped operation or RDO for short. I have had my Shiva for 1 1/2 years. It is powered by an old Pioneer Dolby Pro Logic receiver. I output the LFE chnnel from my DD receiver to the preamp input of the Pioneer. This sendds 125 W times 2 to the Shiva. Both voice coils are powered. Has anyone tried what Avatar (Adire) calls RDO. They state that if you power 1 voice coil, you can use the second voice coil as an electrmagentic brake. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this mode of operation and what it sounds like. Thanks.
