Ah, didn't know that PM.

Makes me happy that Axioms have more than decent power handling.

Ok.. I'll bite.

Why on Earth would you want to listen to square waves?
(For some reason or another, I have a feeling the answer will be "to listen to my Wierd Al Yankovic album".)

And if you don't want to listen to them, why else would it be necessary to run them through your speakers?

hehe..
I listen to square waves all the time when im playing with my synth..It's kindof cool listening to square, sawtooth, triangular and sine wave thru high performance speakers..
If your a tweaking around with an analog synth the sound your making with begin with a basic wave like above and then youll start to fool around with the attack, delay , sustain , release and all that other fun stuff.

Reminds me of this keyboard my family had when I was in junior high.

In reply to:

Are there any speaker technologies that don't get damaged by loud square waves?



One thing you could do if you WERE looking to protect your speakers is find the Speaker Z (in ohms - 8 for most Axioms) and the Peak Power (or 4x Continuous Average Power is a good base) and cross reference them on a fuse nomograph, and put a slo-blo fuse in serial to protect them from thermal damage (or a fast-blo instrument fuse to protect tweeters from large transient voltages).

(ie: 8 ohm, 75W Peak = 1.5A)

If anyone's that interested, I can bring home and scan the nomograph.

Bren, I'm not far enough into applied electronics to set that up, but I enjoyed the information regardless.

My math stinks... so anything past basic + - x /, I like to have a chart.

Find two points, draw a straight line through the answer.
