  2. The only way to connect a subwoofer to your 202 is through it's speaker terminals providing that the subwoofer also has speaker terminals. Otherwise you will need to swap out either the receiver or the subwoofer. Bill
  3. Looking for L/R surrounds to add to my current set up. Suggestions? currently: Front L/R = R-820F Center = R-34C Top Front = CDT-2650C Top Rear = CDT 2650C Surrounds = ????? Surround Rear = R-51M I really like the size/shape bi-directional aspects of the RP-250S and I can get a pretty good deal on them, but is it wrong to mix the RP with the R line? Would the R-14S be a sufficient speaker for the job? Or do I go with a directional speaker such as the R-41SA?
  4. Today
  5. So the main reason the RP-250s appealed to me is due to the dual direction of the speakers. There doesnt seem to be anything offered like that in the reference lineup. How much of a difference is it from something like the R-14s and the RP-250s?
  6. Thank you! That clears that part up

    So...

    Hi, Ami! It’s great to hear from you. Hope all’s well with you and yours. Things are still about the same for me, except the system grows a bit more each year. Thanks to all the informed and helpful enablers on here, it’s pretty advanced now, and I’m enjoying it more than ever. Pat
  8. That is one interesting looking cabinet, unusual. I like it. So, are the two woofers still mounted in the sides of K402? Looking at the photo it seems like a very tight space.
  9. Did you buy your receiver from a dealer? If so, ask there about how to connect the sub.
  10. In spite of having 15” woofers, La Scalas don’t have very deep bass, so they really benefit from the help of a subwoofer. They do have lots of clear mid-bass, and the sub fills in the very bottom.
  11. Official temp 117 in my area. It was noticeable. Tomatos and fig tree are stressed. Did about 1.5 hrs of yard work in divided doses: 20 minutes of work to 1 hr cooling off and hydration. Wife bought two rolls of artificial turf and wants it installed in the backyard. It may wait for winter......
  12. What are you using for a receiver/amp? The .1 in an x.1 setup refers to a subwoofer so yes, in a 3.1 setup you'll need a subwoofer.
  13. The easiest thing to do would be one of two things: Get a different sub that has speaker-level inputs. Get a different receiver.

After dusting themselves off, the woman and the man surveyed their situation. the man spoke. "Well Mam , this looks pretty grim." "I know, ." "In fact, I don't think it likely that we can survive ." "I agree." since we are unlikely to make it out of here alive, would you do something for me?" "Anything sir " "I have never seen a woman's b------ts and I was wondering if I might see yours." "Well, under the circumstances I don't see that it would do any harm. ----the man enjoyed the sight of her shapely br-----ts, "sir, could I ask something of you?" "Yes Mam ?" "I have never seen a man's thing . Could I see yours?" "I supposed that would be OK," the man replied undoing his pants . , he was sporting a huge e--------on. " the man says , you know that if I insert my thing in the right place, it can give life." "Is that true sir ?" "Yes it is, mam ." "Then why don't you stick it up that camel's a-----and lets get the hell out of here."

    So...

    Amy, glad you're well. My great aunt lived until 103 years of age, and met Edison and Ford, but not Johnson or Berliner. She had the old one sided records, which she played ... on a Victrola. It had the tapered, hollow tone arm. When I was about 2 years old, the Victrola fascinated me, so she moved it to my house, where it lived until I was about 5, starting the only addiction I've ever had. It's Victrola's fault!

    Jokes?

    a superintendant tells two new tenants that they have to paint their room without getting any paint on their clothes. One lady suggests to the other, "Hey, let's take all our clothes off, fold them up, and lock the door." So they do this, and begin painting their room. Soon they hear a knock at the door. They ask, "Who is it?" "Blind man!" The women look at each other and one lady says, "He's blind, so he can't see. What could it hurt?" They let him in. The blind man walks in and says, "Hey, nice bo---bs . Where do you want me to hang the blinds?"

    Jokes?

    A boy is selling fish on a corner. To get his customers' attention, he is yelling, "Dam fish for sale! Get your dam fish here!" A Gentleman hears this and asks, "Why are you calling them 'dam fish.'" The boy responds, "Because I caught these fish at the local dam." The Gentleman buys a few fish, takes them home to his wife, and asks her to cook the dam fish. The wife responds surprised, "I didn't know it was acceptable for a Gentleman to speak that way." He explains to her why they are dam fish. Later at the dinner table, he asks his son to pass the dam fish. He responds, "That's the spirit, Dad! Now pass the f*=====g potatoes!"
  18. put that between two slices of sourdough.... Was chuckling at the weather forecaster. It was 113` in Tucson and he was trying to make it sound like it gets much warmer than that ... excuse --- highest temp ever recorded in Tucson was 117` . Ya think you are really gonna notice 4` more? Hit and miss rain... We got a miss today. Did cloud over and wind came cool around 5. That was nice. A little sooner would be better. Did knock the edge off. oh spot is still running the way it is supposed to. Hope I didn't jinx myself. My buddy gave up on spot. told him what I did. he doesn't want to do that... he uses his computer a lot more than I do. Refreshing the browser makes you have to jump thru hoops with all the sites you use. For me, it wasn't a long list... here, and my email, and spot
  19. It depends what you want the center channel for. For home theater, if you have an AV receiver, connect the center speaker to the CENTER speaker terminals on the receiver. To buy a La Scala, the usual places are the Garage Sale forum, eBay, Craigslist. I believe you'll need to hear the speakers playing to decide if you want or need a subwoofer. Each La Scala has a 12" woofer in it, so 3 speakers (Left, Right, Center) with their 12" woofers might be all you want. There's ways to test and measure frequencies depending on how complex your equipment is. All that comes after you have that third speaker in place.
  20. absolutely!!!!! Make time to do it. A sense of purpose. Something to look forward to. I like gardening. A long term project.
  21. Do not connect a speaker lead to the sub’s RCA socket or you’ll damage the sub’s amplifier! Are you sure your receiver has no sub output? It won’t be among the speaker cable outputs, it will be among the Pre Out RCA sockets. This is because the sub has its own amplifier and needs only the music signal to operate. That, plus you have to plug its power cord into the wall socket, of course. Yes, the volume controller will control the volume of the subwoofer. You just have to set its volume once, to match its output to the other speakers, then you’re all set. Welcome to the Forum!
  22. Laugh more.. stress less and a healthy amt of exercise is working for me. Never worried about money... never had any to worry about.... that has not changed. Kinda let myself go since "retiring". Stopped shaving and cutting my hair...flaunting the fact that I'm the only male in the fam with hair [that didn't migrate south]. if you call it a regret Moving to Hawaii. Wiped out my "bucket list". I have a loving wife, a roof and a pair of LaScalas...Can't ask for much more
