  1. It can. You'll want to pull them forward so they're flush with the built in. That'll reduce reflections from the cabinet. You'll get some vibrations from the built in that may or may not be audible.
  2. Make sure that speaker's bi wire jumpers are secure.
  3. You'll probably need to turn the gain on the sub way, way up considering the high sensitivity of LaScalas.
  4. That poster hasn't been back to the forum since 2017. They're talking about removing the tweeter horn through the motor board (cabinet front) and checking to make sure both positive and negative wires are connected to the speaker.
  5. Watching the original Jurassic Park on Blu-ray tonight. πŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜³
  6. Stick em deep in the corners toed in. That's about the same size as the room I have for my basement theater. I have everything along the long wall as well.
  7. HDMI is the only format that will transfer lossless audio. If you're listening to anything that is encoded with codecs like DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD, etc, you'll only be able to hear them with HDMI.
  8. I would triple check all wiring. Are you bi amping any speakers? If not, are all the bi wire jumpers securely in place?
  9. Haha, I spent way more time on AVSForum this week than I have in months.
  10. I wasn't able to log on all week using my phone.
  11. No affiliation. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-K-55-V-Midrange-Driver-/234240257034?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  12. They were made in 1992. Personally I'd say $200-300.
  13. They make Heresys look like tiny bookshelf speakers!
  14. My wife came home from being gone all weekend and I had her come down to the basement to show her. She just shook her head and said "Why??" 🀣
  15. Haha, elephant in the room is right! I have mine 19" from the wall behind them so they stick out almost 5 feet into the room! πŸ˜…
  16. I believe with the size THT I have the horn length is approximately 13 feet.
  17. Nope. Just straight from my receiver to a Crown X1000 amp.
  18. So I set everything up just to hear them in my room. Placed them with the mouth facing the wall behind them, 19" from that wall. With my SVS subs the auto calibration had set my subwoofer output at -1.0dB so I just left it at that just to see how it sounded. I've read that the THT isn't considered a true horn sub but it's the closest to one I've ever heard. It's really hard to describe how they sound. They're just plain violent, but in a good way. Just unbelievable output but they don't feel or hear like they're straining whatsoever. I put on Star Wars IX and watched the opening up until Palpatine raises the star destroyers. It felt as if my couch was levitating along with the ships! Then I looked up some old school Bass 305 songs on YouTube. My best friend and I used those songs back in our car audio days. By far the cleanest and smoothest that I've ever heard the bass from those songs. What is noticed most is the evenness in output at all the low bass frequencies in the Bass 305 songs. With any previous home sub I've had there always were certain frequencies that were over emphasized and certain frequencies you could barely hear. I don't know if it was a combination of sub placement, the subs themselves or what but I think I got lucky with these THTs and how they interact with my room because to my ears they have the flattest response of any sub I've never had. And that's only messing around with them for a little over an hour. If you have the room and if the gigantic size isn't an issue I would highly recommend a THT or similar sub! 🀘
  19. Size comparison of one THT next to SVS PB-12NSD. 😳
  20. He was too busy making me deaf! πŸ˜‚
  21. I don't have measurements but I just purchased two THTs from member @Rowan611 today and he has two more! He's in Woodbury and has a for sale listing in the classified section at AVSForum.com https://www.avsforum.com/threads/fs-2-thts.3212702/#post-61088355
  22. I'm not sure that speaker is quite old enough to qualify as a museum model. 😁
  23. I just wanted to say that I had the privilege of meeting Rowan611 today when I purchased two THT subwoofers from him. Great guy and while I didn't get a chance to check these Heresys out I'm sure whomever ends up with them will be very pleased!
