Not a stupid question. There arenít any here. I am sorry I implied that.

My OMG was more of a Ďhere we go againí as the issue of IEC fittings has come up quite a few times and there never seems to be a good answer. Engineering specs always say the female and male portions should fit perfectly but it seems highly dependent on the chord and the equipment and the location.

There are no Ďpatí answers. IMHO if you are otherwise happy with your power chord donít go hunting for better fitting chords. It could be an expensive life long endeavor.

Try prying a toothpick into the socket to better wedge the chord in.

Try supporting the chord somehow - from underneath, with zip ties from above etc.

Good luck

Just get a Furutech NCF booster and be very happy you did.

Haha! Thanks CR. I'll assume I'm not alone in this minor but noticeable gripe then. Hadn't thought of wedging it but I do that as a fix with ill fitting wood screws when no other solution is handy

Oddeophile: The issue is at the IEC connector in the sub's amp, not the wall socket. I'm using the JLA supplied power cord which seems to be a loose fit in the receptacle on both my units. I have no complaints with the performance apart from the relatively insecure fitment of the supplied cord.

I probably would have suffered this as a minor inconvenience but the topic came up in this section so I asked.

Try wrapping a tight layer or two of black electrical tape around the IEC connector.

Exactly. Use the booster at the IEC! Thatís where itís Next used and the most beneficial. Not only perfect support but also the benefits of the NCF technology.
I have mine all places on IEC connections as they drop a bit with the heavy Shunyata Sigma cords.
My noise floor dropped to jet black. Worth the investment.

Default Power cord for subwoofer

BTW Iíve only had mine a few days. The improvements were immediate and easily discerned.
Iíd check out the reviews and customer commentaries on the net as a starting point. Of course judge for yourself. Perhaps thereís a reason Furutech canít keep them in stock?

I couldnít afford the couple I have but worst case was Iíd send back if I couldnít hear any differences. Theyíre not going back! I just have to figure how to pay for them at this point.

Thanks! I'm skeptical of the bang /buck ratio of certain tweaks. My system is already very quiet on it's dedicated panel but I have to say your enthusiasm is compelling.
