  1. Is the dope from hope available in pdf or downloadable format?
  2. Well I was trying to come in on budget but I've already heard the whooshing sound as it sailed past. I've already spent twice as much as expected so why stop now! I'll just get the 1000 watt amp over engineering is better than under engineering. Thanks again!
  3. Has there been documented proof of a virus spread via mp3? I haven't come across any but if they are that is a new attachment I will have to start blocking. I would say the chances of a virus surviving that are slim but you could always open it on a mac no chances of a virus infecting that but I suppose the last thing this forum needs is another flame war topic pc vs. mac : ).

I wonder if you can sell realdolls from realdoll.com on audiogon.
  5. _________________________ The Parts Express plate amp would be fine for this application. Get one of the bigger ones if you do, I'd go for the 500 watter. If you go with a conventional power amp, you can use Harrison Labs F-Mods for crossovers. They are a passive, preamp level 12 db high or low pass crossover that will plug into the power amp. Use 70 Hz with the Belles. You might consider 60 or 80 Hz if your room is unusual. _________________________ I was wondering about the crossover settings that was going to be my next question. Which would have the best sound quality? The 500 watt plate amp looks good. When I first heard this sub it was powered by a 200 watt nad so 500 watts should be enough. It's amusing to me that my klipsch are driven by 8 watt each yet the sub is 500 watt. Thanks again for the advice, Seti
  6. What is this re-form of which you speak? I learn something new everytime I am on this forum.

  8. I would say it depends on the girl last bit of luck i had she wanted to listen to the dead kennedy's and the undertones first release.If she's a hippy chick bob marley(acoustic medley off songs of freedom box set) always works. Hell ask her what she wants to listen to!
  9. I am not going to use this in a ht setup but just to hit where the belle's don't. I only heard this sub once when I purchased it and I wanted to set it up in the same config to see if I like it at home. The guy I bought it from had it setup in his house had a 200 watt NAD amp and an external crossover. I believe these are the drivers. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&PartNumber=297-608&DID=7 * Power handling: 300 watts RMS/425 watts max * Voice coil diameter: 2" * Voice coil inductance: 4.2 mH * Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms * DC resistance: 3.5 ohms * Frequency response: 18.1-500 Hz * Fs: 18.1 Hz * SPL: 90.6 dB 2.83V/1m * Vas: 4.92 cu. ft. * Qms: 3.7 * Qes: .21 * Qts: .20 * Xmax: 12.5mm * Net weight: 14.6 lbs. * Dimensions: Overall Diameter: 12", Cutout Diameter: 11", Mounting Depth: 5-1/4", Magnet Diameter: 5-3/4". *greek to me* I unfortunatley do not know how they are wired as they were custom built and I did not get any schematics. Thanks for the advice....
  10. What is your opinion of the bottlehead 2a3's ?
  11. I'm not going to use this in a home theatre. The person I bought them from had the sub hooked up to a 200 watt nad and a seperate crossover. In retrospect I should have had him toss them in on the deal. He was using the sub to add some bass and go where the belles couldn't. It wasn't room rattling ht bass but rather just adding something you could tell on some tracks when it was turned off that something was diferent. I thought it was interesting and wanted to try a simnilar setup at home for further evaluation. I'm not sure after evaluation if I would love it or hate but I want to give it another chance. I don't mind buying a plate amp just for the sub and I also wouldn't mind picking up one of the amps listed. What I do care about is quality and clarity which would be the best route? a lower powered plate amp/crossover or a seperate amp and crossover? Thanks again for all the advice!
  12. I believe that is it all he told me was that it had 2 12 inch peerless xls drivers but that could be it. He also said it will go down to 18cycles but I'm a newbie not really sure how low that is. Thanks for the opinion I was a little worried as I spent $1200 on the belle's and $400 on the sub. I will look at the amps suggested. Do those include crossovers? Thanks!
  13. When I bought a pair of Belle's I also got a custom made isobaric subwoofer because he would not split them up. The sub was supposedly designed by someone who was a consultant for Cary Audio but I can't prove it and the cabinet was made buy a great woodworker in the Ozarks. It is made from walnut(pic attached) and even uses the same grill as the belles. All I know about the guts of this critter is that it has 2 12 inch peerless drivers. The problem is that it has no built in amp or crossover. I have a tube based system but for the sub I would prefer solid state. What would members of this forum recommend for this sub? Can I purchase an external unit that has crossover and amp in one unit? This is my first sub and I am just not sure what would be the best course of action. Any advice much appreciated!

  15. I currently have the JJ 300B's and I have been happy with them so far but the only thing I have compared them to are some valve arts which I didn't like as much. I have been reading really good reviews of the sophia meshplates but has anyone in this forum tried them? http://www.sophiaelectric.com/pages/se/300B5v.htm
  16. I have seen several pieces of wright gear come up for sale on audiogon lately and when they do they sell fast. I missed 4 pieces before I got a preamp and if I like it i'll also try his phono stage. I searched audioasylum and it seems he has a good reputation for building quality gear without being overpriced but i'll seen find out. Seti

Who am I to talk though my nick makes me flamebait : ). Just a thought. seti
  18. Well dam I just switched from UPS to FedEX because of shipping problems and units arriving broken and boxes partially crushed. The last two times I shipped there were problems and they are the hardest to collect from or at least for me. What other shipping options are there? I was thinking that perhaps next day delivery would be an option as travel time is reduced? Shipping is the only thing I don't like about buying items off of audiogon.
  19. OK sorta of topic but funny. My nephew was watching the beverly hillbillies(episode Jethro's Pad) so I noticed Jethro was trying to be an internatial jetset playboy and one of the requirements for this status was a hi-fi system to help put women in the mood. I wouldn't usually notice but he had tube monoblocks and even a tube preamp. The tubes he was using were very bright and I was hoping to see soem khorns but no such luck. The only problem I could see with Jethros plan was that he was using a turntable per channel so it would be stereo to blast women into the mood...I can't believe I haven't tried this.. So how many of you have success put women in the mood with your systems and are we that much closer to being international playboys? LOL

    room size ?

    I simply had no idea room size mattered so much. Thanks for all the input perhaps i'll just tear down one of the walls and extend the room. So what are the magic deminsions for a room to house a pair of belles anyhow?

    room size ?

    Wow thanks for all the advice. It is a little over my head so I should start to read the f*ing manual. lol.... I went back and actually measured the ceilings for myself and only one room in the house has 15ft ceilings and that is the kitchen lol no klipsch there. The other rooms are 12ft ceilings. I'll check out the modecalc. I have an attic that could be converted to living space but i bet the slanted ceilings wouldn't help..... Thanks again!
  22. Wow I can't believe the Sophia's are built like that and I almost bought a sophia integrated off of audiogon months ago. I wish I had a high-end audio shop I where live that would let me carry gear home to try out. What other gear do they have that you could take home? If I had the opportunity you do I would definately take advantage of it but at least I have audiogon. Goodluck....

    room size ?

    I have never really thought about room size or dimensions as important to my audio system but from what I have read in these forums some of you consider it to be one of the most important factors. It is not a home theatre just a 2way system belles with 300b 8wpc set. I just purchased a home and have 3 different rooms that I could turn into an audio room. Which of these should I choose and they all have 15ft ceilings? 13 x 8 14 x 11 14 x 14 Thanks, Seti
  24. I think it's great when you find a new genre of music to love. I recently got sucked into old bluegrass and dare I say country music from the 30's hank sr etc. If you like emenem you should listen to the beastie boys if you haven't already "check your head" and their latest album "to the 5 boroughs". I listened to these two albums excessively last night. My poor neighbors they were so sad when they saw me bringing the belle's into the house several months ago : )
  25. I will definately check out these sites for tubes. I would be more than happy to give a review of this preamp in a couple months. Next on the list of things to buy a turntable and phonopre. So long and thanks for the advice!
