  1. Thanks DrWho! In the information I read on SVS's site, the low level outputs on the sub will filter out the bass, and it is adjustable from 40Hz to 150Hz. Guess I'll just have to try it out both ways and see which one I like best.
  2. Thought I'd post it for sale on here before I put it on eBay. I'm the original owner, and I've owned it for about 10 years. Its a Dolby Pro-Logic receiver that is in 100% working order. There are a few very minor scratches on the side and top of the receiver. It has a built-in parametric equalizer and digital equalizer display. I have the original manual and I replaced the remote control with an OEM one from Sony last year because my wife spilled beer on the original one. [{] [:@]120 watts x 2 in stereo mode. I'll have to look at the manual to see what the wattage in surround mode would be, but I'm sure that anyone buying this receiver will use it in a 2 channel setup. Asking $85 plus shipping. Its a heavy unit, and I will ship the receiver either through the Post Office, UPS or FedEx, whichever the buyer prefers. Buyer to pay only the actual shipping cost. PayPal preferred, but I'll take a money order if you'd like. I believe I paid $450-500 for it new. Email me or post here with any questions!
  3. With my receiver, hooking it up like that isn't the best option though (As far as I can tell). Its a 2 channel receiver, no LFE output, no option for adjusting speaker size such as 'large' or 'small.' The subwoofer output on my receiver is in stereo, it has both left and right Sub outs. Because of that I don't need to use a Y adapter. If I hook a sub up to that output, my receiver isn't going to know if there's a sub or not as far as what the receiver amplifies. Using the sub output will result in the subwoofer and the amplifier amplifying the lowest bass signal. However, the SVS sub I'm getting has both a low level line-in and line-out. And, my receiver has pre-ins and pre-outs that are separate from the sub-out. The subwoofer will filter out the bass information that is passed from its line out to the receiver's pre-in. SO, that's why I thought it might be better to hook it up that way. Using the receiver's pre-ins and outs and the sub's line-ins and line-outs will result in the subwoofer handling the bass amplification and the receiver handling the rest. I will try it both ways, but I have a feeling that I'll end up not using the sub out on the receiver.
  4. Component outputs are for video, not audio. Component video = the red, green blue cords.
  5. http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/msg/223686415.html Thoughts?
  6. I'll try it both ways and see which works best. I'm sure my wife will be thrilled at the idea of me spending more time tweaking the stereo. []
  7. I don't think I need a Y adapter, the sub out is stereo, both left and right. The SVS sub has a built in filter that is very adjustable. My thinking is that it would be best to use the pre-outs instead of the sub-out. The SVS has low level inputs and low level outputs and will filter out the bass material and the receiver will then amplify the rest. Otherwise if I use the sub pre-out, both the receiver and the sub will be amplifying the low bass information. If I use the regular pre-outs and pre-ins there won't be frequency overlap.
  8. Can anyone give me a suggestion as to how I should hook up the SVS sub? See this thread: http://forums.klipsch.com/forums/thread/810127.aspx Thanks!
  9. Going to give the SVS 16-46 PC-Plus a try. I emailed the seller and I'm going to his house on Sunday to check it out. He had it packed up ready to ship but he said he'd unpack it and set it up so I could listen to it first. The only powered subwoofer I've owned was a Definitive Technology 15" sub that was a one note boom-boom box. I think it had a 250 watt amplifier. It worked ok with my Definitive Tech satellite speakers, but was no match for either the RF-25s I had or my RF-7s. Alright, here's my question: My H/K receiver is a 2 channel that has a sub pre-out (left and right) that as far as I can rememer is crossed over at 150Hz. It also has pre-in and pre-outs. My first inclination would be to use the pre-outs to the sub and then back to the pre-ins. Doing this will filter the bass that is amplified by the SVS and leave the rest of the signal for the H/K to amplify. Would I see any benefit from hooking the sub up to the sub out on the receiver? There's no menu or settings on the receiver to specify if a sub is connected and no settings to set a speaker to 'small' or 'large' or anything like that. If I do this, the receiver will be amplifying the full signal. Am I correct in thinking that the pre-out and pre-in connection will be the best way to go?
  10. The RSW-12 sells for around $1000 brand new. It has a 2400 watt (peak) amp.
  11. Thanks to everyone (especially TheEAR) for your comments and suggestions! My room is 10' wide, 23' long, 7' tall. It is not a very large room. I am looking at a SVS 16-46 PC-Plus sub. http://www.svsound.com/products-sub-cyl-plpow1.cfm I can purchase this sub for $575 that is less than an hour away to drive. The seller has the original box for the sub. I figure, worse case scenario I can always resell the sub on eBay. I'm not looking for bone crushing bass, just something that I can cross over at 80hz or so and will dig deeper than my RF-7s.
  12. I know SVS has a great reputation for deep, flat bass. Are they legitimate contenders as far as SPL goes? I've been looking at them on their website and I think the 16-46 PC-Plus sounds like a great sub. Will this sub keep up with the output of my RF-7s? Thanks!!
  13. It might help to get a Y-splitter so that both the red and white inputs on the subwoofer are connected.
  14. Are you sure the DVD has the correct region code? I think North America is code (1)
  15. Great review! $15.91 with free shipping from www.deepdiscountdvd.com ! http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/dvd.cfm?itemID=UNI004499
  16. Budget limited at this point. I think I may just wait it out and save up enough to be able to get a bigger sub, possibly the RSW series.
  17. 600 watts PER RF-7 and you're worrying about damaging the speakers? How about damgaing your ears or the foundation of your house?? [] If you look at the Klipsch site they are actually rated at 250 wattsRMS/1000 watts peak. If you've got a capable enough amp (which you certainly do) don't worry about blowing the RF-7s.
  18. Baseball cap, windbreaker type jacket, nice wall plaque. Thanks for looking to us for ideas, Amy! [<)]
