DIY Slipstream Quantum Purifiers



Experienced audiophiles with knowledge of electronics and good soldering skills can improve the sound of their system components at very reasonable cost by installing Quantum Purifiers themselves. Loudspeaker upgrades are just as easy. These purifiers will require a break-in to sound best.

Bybee Small Copper Slipstream Quantum Purifier

Small COPPER Slipstream Quantum Purifiers are typically used in lower-current AC circuits, non-AC analog and digital circuits, and smaller mid-range drivers and tweeters. This product is made with 18 gauge copper wire. This product will reduce noise and improve the overall signal to produce greater resolution and definition with an organic touch. Wire upgrades are available in silver and gold, which add another dimension to the improvements. Higher current applications should consider Large Regular Purifiers or AC Bullet.

These small purifiers can also be used for filtering the mains (lower current situation).
However it is important (sound wise) to put a purifier in BOTH wires (phase and neutral)

Body Length: 3/4 inch, diameter: 1/3 inch, leads: one inch, 18 gauge copper,
current-handling: 4.3 A, voltage: >1000 V , resistance: 0.025 ohm

AC BULLET

This new AC Bullet was designed to purify the incoming AC to be utilized in all types of equipment. Like all Bybee products, it is passive. It is designed to handle spikes and current up to 20 amps. Use is only limited to available space in the product being modified. Made with 12 gauge copper wire and one inch leads, this AC Bullet conditions and improves all AC signal paths, delivering improvements to the performance of all components. Typical uses include placement at IEC in component on positive leg. Power conditioners, Amplifiers, DACs, and Pre-Amps will all benefit from this product. In addition to audio, this product can also improve video. Lower current applications can consider Large Regular Purifiers or Small Slipstream Purifiers.


Length: 1 inches, diameter: 1/2 inch, leads: one inch, 12 gauge,
current-handling: 20A, voltage: >1000 V , resistance: 0.025 ohm

Internal Speaker Bullet

This new Internal Speaker Bullet is designed as an alternative or a complement to the Internal Speaker Bullet Kit. This device has 1 inch long leads made of 14 gauge copper wire. Designed and constructed with a higher level of treatment, this product delivers detail resolution, warmth and harmonic richness unsurpassed in our other purifiers. This product is primarily designed for internal application inside of speakers between cross-over and terminals; and on the positive leg. However, it can be used in same applications as Regular Large Purifiers when pricing is not an object.


Length: 1 inches, diameter: 1/3 inch, leads: one inch, 14 gauge copper,
current-handling: 15A, voltage: >1000 V , resistance: 0.025 ohm

DIY Guidelines & Tips

All purifiers are passive and they are not directional.

The amount of voltage passing through a purifier is inconsequential. More important is the amount of current. AC Purifiers are designed to withstand AC spikes and are rated for up to 20 amps; the Large purifiers are rated for 15 amps, and the small slipstream purifiers for 4.3 amps. (These ratings reflect the capacity of the leads).

As a general rule, our Quantum Purifiers have proven effective in numerous locations for every type of audio/video component and loudspeaker. Among the most common uses are AC power, audio/video inputs and outputs, and digital inputs and outputs, and loudspeaker upgrades. A good general principle for all installations is to place the Bybee Quantum Purifier as near as possible to the destination end of the AC or signal path.

The Large Purifiers can be used for AC applications where an unexpected spike is not anticipated. To avoid damage from spikes, the AC Bullet/Purifier should be considered. Large Purifiers are acceptable for most all other signal applications. Where space is limited, for instance, with some source components, the small purifiers may be substituted as long as the current flows through them and it does not exceed 4.3 A. It is typically more convenient to use small purifiers in modifying analog and digital circuits, although large purifiers may be used in those applications as well, if space permits.

Audio/Vidio RCA Inputs and Outputs

For optimum performance improvement with RCA jacks, connect a purifier at (or as close as physically possible to) the positive terminal of the jack, and a second purifier on the return leg. Treating only the positive leg will also enhance performance, but to a lesser degree.
For XLR balanced input jacks, both hot and neutral must be treated. For XLR output jacks, best results will come from additionally treating the ground — although here too, the purifier for the ground may be omitted, with some lessening of the performance improvement.

The best results come from treating inputs and outputs. However, if that approach is too expensive, excellent results can still be achieved. As a rule, placing the purifiers at inputs is slightly more effective than putting them on outputs. Note: When upgrading a preamplifier, the input modification can be placed after the selector switch, so that the input signals from all source components get the benefit.


Speaker Upgrades

The following installation options are listed in order of improvement for speaker installations. Option 1 is the best internal speaker modification possible using Bybee products. Option 4 will still produce significant improvements.

Option 1) The Ultimate Improvement.
-One (1) Internal Speaker Bullet installed at, or as near to, the positive (+) tab of each transducer; and one (1) Regular Large Purifier installed at, or as near to, the negative (-) tab of each transducer.

Option 2) The Next Best Improvement.
One (1) Internal Speaker Bullet installed at, or as near to, the positive (+) tab of each transducer; and one (1) Regular Large Purifier installed between the cross-over and binding post on the negative (-) leg.

Option 3) Excellent Results - Speaker Bullet Kit (set of 4)
One (1) Internal Speaker Bullet installed between the cross-over and binding post on the positive (+) leg; and one (1) Regular Large Purifier installed between the cross-over and binding post on the negative (-) leg.

Option 4) Good Results.
One (1) Internal Speaker Bullet installed on the positive (+) leg only, between the crossover and the binding post.

 


Bybee products have ben around for a long time, so many of the review are somewhat older. However the improvements they bring are still the same and in most cases they are even bigger.
