  1. Some RF-7 owners have found that an appropriately suited receiver/amp will bring more of a midrange boost. Even though they are efficient speakers they do have an unusually low impedence dip (2.8 ohms) and the amplification system needs to be able to handle it.
  2. Please tell me you're kidding...you've never heard of Dr. Drew??[:^)]
  3. Right-o!. Here is my last for a while: "But yes....I love technology..." Hint: it's actually a line in a song (if you can call it that) sung by a character in the very last scene of the movie. Movie came out two years ago. 2nd hint: The first line of the "song" is.. "Why do you love me...why do you need me...always and forever.." Couldn't be anything other than the song that Napoleon Dynamite's brother sings to Lafawnduh after the credits of Napoleon Dynamite! So is it my turn then? Well, if it is, here's my quote: "I'm telling you, its like an orange on a toothpick!"
  4. If you haven't tried already, turn the power switch back and forth between 'On' and 'Auto' to see if either of them work. It should obviously work fine in the On position if everything is ok. I know some subwoofers are touchy when they're in the Auto position.
  5. Boston at the Minneapolis Target Center, probably in 1994-95.
  6. I think it would be terribly uncomfortable to drive that way all the time. Most cars don't have the pedals spaced far enough apart to let you drive like that very well. Your right leg has a pretty straight shot at pushing both the accelerator and brake pedals firmly down. Using your left leg on the brake makes your leg have to be twisted at a funky angle to press it down. Unless you sit with your whole body turned slightly, which again brings me back to the uncomfortable nature of doing it.
  7. Do you attempt to play any music through the sub when its hooked up to the high level inputs? Your subwoofer has an automatic sensing circuit that only will turn the sub on when it senses an audio signal coming to it. It has a 2 second delay before the sub self-powers on. Don't hook up something without a volume control to test it. It needs a signal from a receiver or amp. Best way with what you have is to hook up the high level inputs to a receiver and play some music.
  8. Are you talking about the U.S. or British series? I personally think its hilarious (U.S.)
  9. Well, looks like somebody jumped on the deal.
  10. http://cgi.ebay.com/LIKE-NEW-Klipsch-Synergy-III-Powered-Sub_W0QQitemZ9743485397QQihZ008QQcategoryZ3275QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Not mine but I sure would love to have it at that price!
  11. If your receiver is like most, if you hook up something to the pre-outs you must then hook something back into the pre-ins. Since your Sub-12 only has a low-level input and not a low level output it probably won't work at all if you hooked it up that way. Your best bet would be to hook it up to the LFE input. While you're at it, it is possible to hook up a cable that has a Y splitter so that your single RCA cable from your LFE output on the receiver connects to both the Left/LFE and Right inputs on the sub. You will hear a noticeable increase in bass output by doing this. I believe around a 6dB increase. Crossover settings at 80Hz should work fine for you.
  12. I watched Star Wars III last night on my RF-7s. I got rid of my Definitive Technology 15" self-powered sub a month ago. The sub used to handle all the bass up to 80Hz. In the opening scene with the space battle the explosions were louder, deeper, tighter and clearer with my RF-7s alone than when I had my sub. They are not bass shy!
  13. Through the Kimberley Process the diamond industry has taken huge leaps towards preventing diamonds from passing through undesired hands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimberley_Process). There are dozens of brands of watches that most people have never even heard of, let alone see or own in their lifetime. At the jewelry store where I work, Rolex is the top brand that we sell as far as price and quality. My favorite watch that I will probably never own is a Patek Philippe Calatrava. Why not? COST! That, and in Minnesota there is only 1 jeweler that carries Patek Philippe. Rolex is in the top 5 of brand name recognition of any product in the world. That's the reason why most people think they're #1 in watches. You don't succeed in doing that by making mediocre timepieces! [O]

    Cheap DVDs

    Thanks for the heads up! Oh, wait, someone else already posted about the sale! http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/thread/748054.aspx Hey, it was ME!! []
  15. I was out getting new tires on my summer wheels. [au]
  16. Fortunately DeBeers is losing its stranglehold on the worldwide diamond production every year. The Canadian Arctic diamond mines are a good example of this. And yes, if you were to take DeBeers out of the picture diamond prices would most definitely drop. But then they would be like the price of gas and fluctuate with every little whisper of news. I personally love both audio equipment and watches. If you ever look into what goes into a watch like IWC or Rolex as far as the time and the complexity you'd be impressed. 200+ individual components hand made and hand assembled. They might not be the most accurate watches in the world but they are made based on time proven build techniques and design. Its like comparing a 1969 Corvette with a 2006 Z06. Sure the Z06 puts out much more power and gets better mileage than the 1969, but sometimes the latest and greatest isn't the most desirable by everyone. A good example of that is that many members of this forum are powering their systems with tube equipment and listening to vinyl. A lot of people would look at ones who do that and think they're stupid since technology has "advanced" so much. It all depends on what you like best. Me, I wear a Rolex (because I sell them), have Klipsch (because I love them) and drive a car with a 32 valve dohc V8 (because I love the sound/performance). I guess I like a little of everything! []

  21. MMmm, had an IPA home brew at a friend's house a couple nights ago. Nothing like any of the over the counter brewskis!
  22. Well Amy, I as well as the hundreds of other jewelers in the nation are glad that you are in the minority! []
