  1. I've got Fortes and I have had to turn the bass down so I would not make my neighbor the sheriff mad![8o|]

    Check everything out for damage and make sure the speakers are at least 1 foot from the wall and should have bass down to 32 hz.

    How big of a open room do you have?

  2. Use to have KLF 20s & C7 center with a RSW 12 in 16 x 16 x 8 room that worked outstanding!! I would think the RW 12 would be similar if not better than the RSW 12.

    How big of a room do you have? Someone else can comment on the newer subs out there.

  3. I went from La Scalas to Fortes and to me the Fortes sound better on most of the music I listen to![:o]

    10% of the music I own are outstanding recordings, 10% are very good, 60% are good/okay, 20% suck.

    Now with La Scalas(LS) the 20% outstanding/very good sounded incredible but when I got the Fortes I realized that Fortes to me sounded better overall. Now remember I said overall, highs, midrange, and BASS. The LS midrange was better but the overall sound of the Fortes was better than the LS to me.

    Also another area the Fortes was better is with the 60% of good/okay recordings. On LS I never turned this section of my music up very loud, more background music. With Fortes the 60% good/okay sound soo much better than on La Scalas.

    So if space is a issue go with Forte/Forte II. Chorus/Chorus II are not much bigger and sound very good also. If you have more room then maybe Cornwalls.

  4. Just found the website for a band here in Austin called PorterDavis that is outstandingYes, website

    http://www.loveporterdavis.com/fr_index.cfm

    go
    to the website and their album will play. Bottom of the page is the
    controls for the songs.

    I have it runing thru my tube DAC/Stereo and off the website sounds very good.

    From their website

    "Daniel Barrett's textured leather voice
    wraps so well around not only the band's own rawhide compositions
    ("Smack You Back," "Take the Fall") but those of Muddy Waters ("Can't
    Be Satisfied") and in suede tandem with Eliza Gilkyson ("Carter's
    Tune"). His vocals, plus slide and electric guitar, are sharply honed
    by drummer Mike Meadows and harp player Simon Wallace, an atypical
    rhythm section delivering a sound that resonates in harmony throughout
    Porterdavis and lingers long after the last track.

    --Margaret Moser, Austin Chronicle"

    "Simon Wallace's harmonica work sounds like a miniature horn section."

    --Vintage Guitar Magazine"

    I enjoyed this album so thought I would share. Going to buy it Sunday, support your local
    musicansMusic everyone.

  6. Thanks for the review!![:D] I have fortes and really like them but this will give me a project to work on over the next year.

    I am going to have to email SET12 about what the cost was to upgrade his Fortes. Then upgrade in phases as I get the money.

  7. he is meant to look incompetent

    When I watch a movie I always understand that it's a movie so it may have issues with the plot, writting, directing, acting, etc and give the movie some leeway and don't worry about it.

    But sometimes a movie goes too far in wanting me to ignore obvious(to me at least) flaws in the script or other parts.

    I think he was based on Giligan who would always get into the Professor's experiments. [:D]

  8. I liked certain parts and did not like others.

    I liked the story except my main problem I list below. Great special effects(which is pretty typical nowdays)

    The main problem I had with it was the main charcter was a idiot and would not be in charge of anything except a desk, in a office, in the basement and probably not even that. I don't care if his wife was the daughter of someone high up in the company. They just played him too dumb for me to accept him in the role he played.

    I think also I heard too much about the movie and it could not live up to the hype I heard.

  9. Congrats to all the Bama fans!

    I cannot imagine the frustration McCoy must have felt to spend years getting to this game and then get nocked out minutes into the game.

    If the back up could almost rally for the win makes you wonder what would have happened if McCoy could have stayed in the game. That is football for ya!!

    At halftime and it was 24 to 6 I was afraid it was going to be another blowout but the Horns at least made a game of it.

  10. Last year bought a 80g PS3 and the br movies looked like a regular dvd. Kept playing with it and finally found the problem and then BR dvds looked outstanding. Had to sell that PS3 and just bought the 120g PS3 on Sat.

    Everything on the PS3(shows outputing 1080p in HD) and the HD tv( receiving 1080p in HD) seems correct but on about 70 percent of BRdvds look good but not BR good. GI Joe and Earth look very good but still just does not seem to match the 80g PS3 BR video.

    I have a Toshiba HD dvd player and need to compare the PS3 video to the HD. I'll rent the Transformer BR dvd. They both should have outstanding pics.

    If the PS3 does not then it is not set up right or something is wrong with it and will have to call tech support and then return it.

    Hope it is just something I am missing in the setup but it says it is sending 1080p hd so.

  11. I may see it in a regular theater first and then a 3d theater to see the difference, also my sister cannot handle 3d.

    Knowing Cameron he will figure out a way to release a 3d blueray dvd and take blueray to the next level.

  12. You can adjust output levels between the left center right speakers to match volume wise. Now if you have the money and room then just get 3 of the same speaker.

    When I went from KLF 20s to La Scalas I had a C7 for a center and the LS overpowered the C7 and they just did not match sound wise.

    Got lucky and found a single La Scala on Ebay. First dvd I played was The Incredibles and having the 3 up front sounded outstanding! If you have the room the ideal thing is 3 of the same speakers.
