  1. Past hour
  2. Agreed, they are, overall in great shape. Are there SNs listed anywhere for the pro gear?
  3. John Albright, who designed the DHA2 crossovers I built, said I could replace the 2.5mH inductor on the woofer with a lower value to raise the woofer crossover point back up to 400Hz. Plus, I'm not sure how well my 2a3 amps would deal with the current. I could swap in the Duke to try it. Might try Eldon's idea of connecting a single woofer to it first.
  4. Nope. You have to use clear GE Silicone 2 bathroom caulk.
  5. If you get a chance, and feel like experimenting a bit, try the Eminence Kappa 15C woofer from Parts Express. Major upgrade in fast, clear bass and tonality. I use them in all of my La Scalas and previously in a pair of Belles.
  6. The 2 ohm load will affect the passive crossover's frequency point. That can be compensated for with a slight re-design of the x-over. The other consideration is an amplifier's ability to handle the electric current at 2 ohms without overheating. That depends on the amp you choose to use.
  7. I should note as far as the A-55. I never really liked most of the various 2" drivers I've heard. They all sound a little too PA industrial to me. I much prefer the smaller diaphragms in my living room.
  8. I'm another huge fan of the Bluesound Vault 2 system. Best thing since sliced bread with some cheese and a nice Chardonnay!
  9. I am using Crites AA crossover, stock. I am very impressed with the Belles and the new components. They are very modern sounding but with more punch and dynamics and anything else Ive heard. Low bass will come later. i am thinking a pair of 12" servo subs. However, being in an older apartment building, the subs may wait... Currently using a current model Luxman 507uXII 110wpc into 8ohms. I'd love to demo their 30 wpb Class A amp...
  10. I use the same A-55 mids and CT120 tweeters but went with a new pair of K-33 woofers so I have no comparison to the difference in the Crites woofer. Which crossovers was it you went with, again? I guess I forgot that part. I built a set of Type AA's using the Audyn Plus and do enjoy the way they sound for the most part. I go back and forth with other speakers as the missing bass gets to me and I haven't had time to mess with building a subwoofer yet. But for certain music, and recordings, they do sound great. I had initially run them on the 35 wpc VTA ST-70 amp after we moved in but changed over to a 120 wpc Carver M-200t S/S amp as I didn't need a room heater right now. lol Honestly, the Carver sounds darn good and obviously hardly uses any power at all. I had even hooked them up to a 460 wpc highly modified and upgraded Carver M-1.0t amp and they sounded even better...definitely coasting along.
  11. Unless you stack a bunch of smaller zip ties on top of the main zip tie, in which case it will allow you to hear every single bit of sound.
  12. Yes banana plugs are a standard size + or - manufacturing tolerances of course. And you know those four flaps of metal contact that look like a peel of a banana(hence the name) can be gently pried out to give a tighter connection if necessary.

  16. Howdy Sir, What are you looking for with the HF-35s?
  17. Anything but zip ties. They strangle the sound.
  18. Rplace, or anyone else, If you are serious about getting some two-way Jubilees and trying to save money by getting used ones, then shoot me a PM this weekend. I have some in Connecticut that I might be selling (I need to think it through). If the transaction could be made simple, the discount might be considerable. There is a thread outlining some of the pricing issues ....
  19. I have a living room 13 x 31 feet square, but espace used in home theater is 13 x 12 ..run system 7.2.4 ..I had SVS pb1000 and klipsch SW-110 different size..and brands ..now have R-115sw connected .was thinking was one is better dual before had. run audyssey but now subwoofer the truth, I don't know how to explain myself ... now the 115sw sounds, but the details of the other speakers do not sound as detailed as before, so I don't know, if it is very small space for such a large subwoofer? or have dual R-115sw to compensate. What do masters think?

    Hey Stacy...do you have pictures of the black Heresy III"s? Thank you, Tim
  21. Sony has always been solid and reliable and there is room to work inside of the SR510H which is a big deal. My brother still has the first Sony CD he ever bought in 85 and it still works well and still sounds good.
  22. I think I opened up the Speaker Wire Connector Terminals Can O' Worms. Not entirely unexpected, though. A big thank you to all your opinions and comments. I find them to be very helpful, which is really what I'm after. Feel free to keep them coming, if you do not find them a waste of time. I especially like the copper bar idea. Do you connect them to your amp and speakers with Super Glue, or will Elmer's work ok? I do have some generic Scotch Tape as well. I heard it has minimal signal loss. And it's archival as well. I'm certain that helps, too.
  23. Appreciate the Offer but Im Broke......... Joe
  24. Love my Quicksilver Intergrated! I used it with Forte III before going back to Chorus II.
