  1. [<)]Just wanted to see how many other Minnesotans are on the board.
  2. If you go with RF-7s you will probably never have the desire to upgrade your speakers ever again. I bought RF-25s and had them for 6 months before I sold them and bought my RF-7s!
  3. I'm not sure on the exact size dimensions of the Klipsch Sub-12 but virtually everyone who has heard/bought it has given it excellent reviews. Can be purchased for around $500 at Best Buy or other stores that carry the Klipsch Synergy line.
  4. http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ele/152045645.html Not mine
  5. I'm sorry, but the original post made me think of the movie Three Amigos. The lady asks Chevy Chase to kiss her on the veranda. His reply "How about the mouth?" []
  6. Actually if you look at the back of a lot of new DVDs you'll see they say something like "Recorded in High Definition" or "Filmed in High Definition"
  7. TV quality will make a huge difference in picture quality. Also, the information I've read recommends DVI for LCD or Plasma TVs, Component for RPTVs.
  8. Isn't that where the boys took Chef to brainwash him into liking women again on South Park? [edit] LOL, doing a search for Peppermint Hippo let to another site called Spearmint Rhino.
  9. Well, if you still want to give Klipsch a shot you should check out the new RF-83, the new flagship of the Reference line. Many people have said that it is a more refined sound than the RF-7. With three 8" woofers I would imagine that the midrange would be of slightly better clarity than the two 10" woofers on the RF-7. I believe they retail around $2500 US. http://www.klipsch.com/product/product.aspx?cid=977
  10. You can always buy her a bowling ball that says "Homer" on it!
  11. I really need to get myself a nice mini fridge, not thoes el-cheapo $40 ones that hold like a 6 pack of pop, but one that could hold a 12 pack of 12oz beer bottles and room for something else. It is very nice to have one! Its right behind my bar in the basement. The previous owners must have known I was buying the house. []
  12. Whatever pop/beer is in the bar fridge. Makes me have to walk about 5 feet to get one. []
  13. There's way too many variables to say that any subwoofer placement would be recommended over another way. Things such as room size and phase cancellation with your other speakers are only a couple items that will make a huge difference as to the best location. Best way to find out is sit where you normally listen and have someone move the sub around a bit until it sounds best to you.
  14. You might have better luck buying DeOxit at Radio Shack online or even eBay, which is where I bought mine. I called both my local Radio Shacks and asked if they carried DeOxit and both of them said no. [:@]
  15. I think there's at least a few other members here who would consider a couple of the Heritage Series not exactly "top of the line."
  16. Actually its the love of money that is the root of all evils, so say the verse. Reminds me of another good one..."For wisdom is for a protection as money is for a protection; but the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom itself preserves alive its owners."
  17. Are we talking pots or prophylactics here?! [] Have you tried the standard 'turn the volume knob all the way up and down 50-100 times with the power off and amp unplugged' trick yet?
  18. Someone already posted about them, I think in the 2-channel forum.
  19. I used to have an AudioSource EQ a long long time ago and enjoyed the convenience of being able to adjust the sound over several octaves. I know that many people are of the opinion that not using an EQ would be best, but if I were to hook one up inline with my receiver and subwoofer's pre-ins and pre-outs, would I be introducing more noise and more distortion into my system? With my HK 730 I only have a bass and treble knob and I have no idea what frequency that they boost/cut and by how much. I'd like to be able to leave those at their flat position and then get an EQ to adjust specific frequencies.
  20. The Rolex is a great deal, guys! A current brand new all stainless steel ladies Rolex goes for $3000+! The seller is correct, the bracelet on this Rolex (called the oyster bracelet) is a much more durable and much more modern looking bracelet than the jubilee bracelet (the one with the three small gold center links.) It is much less likely to stretch over time, and since the gold is solid 18k the entire watch can be refinished by almost any jeweler as many times as you'd like and can be made to look brand new forever. The diamonds that Rolex uses in their watches are 'D' color and Flawless clarity. The whitest, clearest and brightest diamonds that nature produces. Even though the diamonds on the dial may be somewhat small, their quality makes them dress the watch up incredibly well. Can you tell that I love watches? Can you tell that I also sell Rolexes? []
  21. Just a few suggestions: Move the speakers as far away from the side walls as you can. This made a huge difference with my RF-7s. What is the flat or middle setting for treble? You state that you currently have it at '2.' Is 0 the middle? I'd put it at 0 or -1, again, if 0 is the middle setting. Horns don't need ANY extra treble empasis! You'll find that different movies and music will be recorded vastly different. Some will be more dynamic and full, and some will be duller sounding. Same with the sibilance in recordings. I have some CDs that I can't even listen to anymore because they sound terrible on my RF-7s. I'd seriously discourage you from trying and modifying your speakers by replacing any drivers. The cabinets and crossovers were designed specifically for each driver that's in there. I can pretty much guarantee that you'll end up with a sound that you will not like. Hope this helps!
  22. Well, my wife would be the first to tell anyone that she's heard me blasting MMMBop by Hanson more than a few times since we've been together. [8-|]
