I received a pair of Axiom 60ti's today (whoopee me), My 3802 hasn't been received yet . So of course I get home from work and take a look at them (Factory Outlet but I couldn't find anything that is visible from 6 inches away) and decide to try and hook them up to an old integrated amp I have been running. It is a Technics SU-V96 (from about 15 years ago) that still runs the same speakers that came with it. I hooked up the Axioms to this amp...no sound at all. I disconnect the speakers and hooked them up another way (it's not those spring clips that I'm used to so I gotta wing it). Now I din't have it blaring at all, I had it a 1 lit up led, still no sound so I push it up another 2 leds to 3, finally I hear a bit of sound but not as loud as it was if I had the older speakers still hooked up (which would be at a good listening level). Then the sound cut off. There was probably 2 seconds MAX of sound then nothing. I tried hooking up the old speakers...still to no avail. (actually I just went down there and it worked). No burning smell, no static or hiss, no popping. The Axioms are rated 10/250 watts, 8 ohms... The old speakers rated at 300 watts The amp rated at 360 watts I have no idea except that maybe I don't know how to properly attached the speaker wires or my amp was just overheating...never had it happen before.
