  • "Bigfoot" classic vs. signature

    I've been searching out there, but haven't found anything really. Can anybody tell me the differences between the two other than the classic is a 4ohm speaker? Are there noticeable sound differences?

    The classic was 4 ohm? I thought all were 6. I upgraded my classic to the sig with the network upgrade they offered for less than $100. The difference was quite noticeable, as it was when I upgraded my 550's to the MKII networks. I prefer the sig networks over the classic ones, but both are acceptable. Other than the network, I was always under the impression they were the same speaker.

      Agreed - It was just a crossover change that shouldn't affect speaker impedance. I did the upgrade at some point and was pleased with the results.

            The original Bigfoot - which I have - was prone to sibilance if you added a lot of power to drive it. I don't know about the Sig version, but I dropped in Skiing Ninja xovers and no-rez, made a big difference for the better.
