    Welcome, fellow Tennesseean !! I'm south of you, 30 miles south of Knoxville.


    Those speakers are well regarded here. Plenty of information and experience to help you on your journey. Once you get them sorted out you may want to experiment with feeding them more power but that Adcom is a nice unit and may prove to be completely adequate.


    Has your 5500 been refreshed? Big caps replaced? It could probably stand for some soldering iron love.

    It looks to have had some work done.  But I'm sure it could use a complete recap.  As soon as I get moved and time I will dive into working on the silvers and the Adcom.

    Hello Jeremy, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. ;) There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help.


    Carver Amazings of all flavors are popular here. I like the butchered Platinums that I have. 


    What other gear do you have?

    Once you get to Novice status, please consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area. We all like pics of all kinds of audio gear.

    In the meantime, kick your shoes off, turn up the music, and welcome aboard.




    I've downsized most of my equipment for a move. I'll be running the Silvers with an Adcom GFA-5500 and may find a preamp to go with it or I may just use my Chromecast audio as an all in one streamer/pre.  I haven't jumped back into vinyl (I'm 45) so it will either be good quality streaming or cds.  I'll have to see how the Adcom does.  Everything Ive read said that the Carvers need a high current plethora of power.  The Adcom did great on my old Logans and never let me down even on those late bourbon driven volume escapades.        I also have a small setup with a Denon integrated, Monitor audio bookshelf speakers and a PSB sub.

    Welcome to the site, @jeremyA.  What parts of TN do you call home?


    And, you have opened pandora's box, with those speakers...


    If they haven't had the cross-overs refreshed..., that is a pretty straightforward Remove and Replace project you can learn on...


    make a list of the parts, go to mouser.com and place an order...


    There are schematics for those crossovers in the library on the site..., but beware, there were MANY variations on those crossovers... 


    So, best bet is to carefully document what you have in YOUR crossovers, and place an R&R order to get back to what you had. 


    Great to have you join the site...


    Yeah pandora's box seems correct based on my research.  I used to have a set of Martin Logan Sequel 2 speakers that I ultimately sold while they were still working properly.  The E-Stat panels were getting harder to come by and $$$$ which seems to be the case on the Carver ribbons. Everywhere I read said that the ribbons play down to around 100hz but the Carver manual on this page says they play full range and the woofers just fill in below 120hz.  That seems crazy.  I haven't dug into the crossover yet to see what is there and what is actually going on.  These are going to be a project for sure.  Woofer refoam and the ribbons are in unknown condition.  but I got them for a steal so I chanced it.
