I get that. That's been the slightly disappointing part so far. The bass is there, and even tighter and more musical than I expected considering my receiver (but only since I've fiddled with Audissey and activated DynamicEQ, without it, the bass was really too quiet). But it's not "punchy", not as physical as one could imagine it could be with 2*10" woofers and such a large cabinet. I assume a good power amp would make a lot of difference in that area!
But for now, I'm happy as is, so my next purchase won't be an external amp. Actually, I'm hesitating between a new subwoofer (XTZ 10.17 edge ?) or a new central speaker. My RC35 is still relevant when I'm watching movies (impressive!), but for multichannel audio when the voice goes from a RF7 to the RC35, it's really bizarre... I'll probably change both, but I'm not made of money and I have to decide in which order to do it 😉
Things are moving fast for those items. The 15" Peavey's and the three QSC amps are gone. The ad now says any remaining item $180 or $1200 for everything.
I can't see well enough to even identify the Yamaha amps. Someone on another site said the three Yamaha P-series were worth some money but I can't read the model numbers. Maybe P-5000S?
The black Yamaha looks like CP2000 but I can't read the writing on the others.
from those photos, Jeff's 400lb "beginner" amp would make a CJ Premier I or ARC D150 look like a toy - that was an intense project. Jeff - how heavy is your current (and evolved) triode amp?
one thing about relatively high output Z amps - I'd guess with such lowpass as the Klipschorn used in later iteration, there would be less "boost" than with regular solid state - or high feedback pp tube amps, so tonal balance could be somewhat different
Looks like you found it out. Just get Crites stock woofers and move on I would say. Try and sell the other ones I'm pretty sure you can sell the k-33 easy not sure about other one. I would always replace in pairs unless you want to get a square magnet K-33 one off ebay or from a forum member.
I'd still really like to see the actual RF-7 III crossovers. I'd also love to see the internal bracing and bifurcated chambers. I intend to buy RF-7 III's, the RC-64 III, and matching surrounds. I'd love to have someone like you do the crossover upgrades on all of them. Any chance you could do this, or know someone who could?
Cannot recall now without looking but I or other may have mentioned the 600's as they were the rage at Rodney's. OP may have suggested cost prohibitive. Still we discussed future events being always better than the last. @Droogne...thinking things went off well last year. What is happening this time around, please...thanks!
