  1. yes he does. they are in storage right now.
  2. well, he said they were plain, but i think he mean's "raw" BUT he said he also stained them. yes, fully functional. i don't believe he has risers because when i showed him the current Herseys he immediately asked about the risers. so, no, he doesn't have any risers.
  3. hey fellow K-Heads...i have a co-worker who was curious what his original Herseys would sell for. now, i know, pics, pics, pics...BUT, i don't have any of that right now. they are in great condition, no issues there, BUT do not have the boxes! he's located in OKC and shipping is always a nightmare! i'm sorry i don't have a ton of info, if someone was actually looking to buy and has the cash now, i'm sure we can get detailed pics and serial information. he's just looking for a ballpark figure. i did a search on here and saw some for $800, but i also didn't see any takers. on ebay "BIN" the prices are a little spread out, but it appears $500 for a pair in "good" condition seems about the average. let me know what you think and if there are any specific questions i need to ask him. thanks again!
  4. ^^^ what he said! most AVR's are about the same. if you went Separates, that's a whole notha' level! i personally suggest separates because it's easier to upgrade, but the 1 big draw back, it's slower to get the newest features. take HDR for TVs now. if your TV is HDR, then you buy a HDR player....now your receiver has to have it or at least a pass through that will allow it. so there is a slight trade off. Emotiva MC-700 = $599 Emotiva A-700 = $599 that processor is HDR compliant.total cost is $1200 for a true 7ch amp. AVR's never have the advertised watts per channel and the number they do show, is ONLY for a 2ch set up. you can also buy an AVR and hook up a Emotiva Amp to it. i did that for a while, but in reality it's cheaper to just get the processor.
  5. there is no shame in a 3.1. just because you "can" put more speakers, doesn't mean you get true surround sound. making that pure bubble of sound is very hard to do. yes, installing speakers will create noise, but a true effect. if anything, move the 2 rear speakers as far back as you can and stick with a 5.1. the 2 sides are just too close.. you want those sides to around 5-6ft away (to give that true sound). we all understand WAF, so there is no issue with room placement. everything is a compromise. yes, you should be concerned the RW-5802 only goes down to 45hz. find something that goes down to 18hz. for WAF factor, a Sunfire True 12" sub is unbeatable. it's only 13" cubed but goes down to 16hz (i think). try and find the "Bob Carver Signature" model. it's a very specific mode and has a different amp than the standard 12" model. they don't make them, but you can find them used for pretty cheap. that sub is great for music as well HT.
  6. dynomat. it serves 2 purposes. it will sound dampen, but it will also absorb vibrations which will give you a more structurally sound cabinet. it basically gives you the sound of very well braced cabinets. i have some aviation grade stuff in my 7's, but dynomat is pretty much the same thing. go for the .5" stuff. you can even put the .25" stuff on your plastic speakers and it will make those plastic speakers sound like wooden speakers. do one side and A/B it!
  7. keep in mind, all klipsch caps are +/- 10% (djk mentioned this for parts express, you can do the same thing for Sonic Craft) 1.125 to 1.375 values will work. why not just get the 1uf and .22uf? ($6.85 + $7.93 = $14.78) my only question would be, do you have the room? the most important thing to remember is to "match" the caps on the front 3 speakers. usually this adds 10% to the cost. if you are nuts (like me) you match your surround speakers as well!)
  8. oh...yeah...um....that sucks. i've even heard nightmares about the pallet shipping method. i had Jason (on here) build some custom subs for my client and they were damaged, on a pallet! well, the company said Jason didn't package them "enough" and my client now has banged up subs. so, yeah i get it. i actually didn't even think about the fact you will have so many boxes. it's like when i saw "7.2" i couldn't do the math! my bad. well, for smaller items or maybe not quite as few, the FedEx account is a great way to save money! GLWTS!
  9. Friday the 13th bump.... so, just asking....when it comes to shipping do you have a FedEx account? it's free, i have one and it saves me a ridiculous amount. i believe i shipped my LPA-1 amp for $30-40? just throwing it out there....
  10. ok, if you are not setting your speakers with an analog SPL meter, you are missing out. you need to get one, use a tripod, and correctly place all your speakers. this isn't a 5 minute ordeal. this may take a day or so. go to THX.com or DolbyDigital.com look at the optional placements and put your speakers there. run a test. then change the speakers slightly and test again. repeat until it sounds the best to you. Sub placement is a tricky science. the Sub crawl will get you very close, then you need to mess with the sub's crossover setting on it to dial it in. i personally have my RF-7's set to 40hz and i think the sub is at 80hz. i don't know the exact number off my head, but it's the one that sounds the best (in my open living room). Spoiler: THX says all speakers should be set at 80hz. start there and adjust as needed. i think i have my center at 100hz. it takes a while to figure out what sounds best to you. you surround speakers, not only do you need to adjust the placement length wise against the wall, you need to mess with the height of them. move them in 6" increments. oh, in the future, if you ever think the RF-7's are the issue, you did something wrong! lmao!
  11. i had my buddy buy 2 subs from Jason (on here) and 1 was damaged, even though it was on a pallet! oh, and you guessed it, the shipper said it wasn't their fault! i would almost build a 2x4 wooden cage around it! i know this, if you make an account on FedEx, shipping rates are retarded cheap! it's free, just register and follow all the steps. this could also be one of the reasons buying a used sub isn't as good as buying new, the shipping cost for us are expensive!
  12. quick update...i sold ALL my left over cables and included my spare Cat 6 speaker cable. so if i contacted you and said i'd let you borrow it, um....well...i can't now! sorry! almost a little sad all my extra stuff is gone! oh well, i'll use the little money i got to buy cycling stuff!!!!
  13. um...my 2 cents....after you are done crying, go find someone on here to "demo" their RF-7's....and then....well....you know....make it look like an accident! lmao! ok, super joking! i have RF-7's and you can NOT visit me! lmao! have you put an ad in the Garage section for a woofer? you may get no hits for a single woofer, but think about buying a complete speaker, that way you have all the spare parts you need! someone has got to have a "damaged" one.
  14. well, that's why i used a drill and a vice! lmao! i have a 9' Cat 6 speaker cable i made that i'm giving to the person who buys my power cable stuff. i'll be curious what they think of their sound.
  15. well....i feel dumb.... i just went to the main site and what do i see...... klipsch is selling RB81II's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.klipsch.com/products/reference-ii-bookshelf-speakers?model=rb-81-ii i told the guy, he better get these before they run out!!!!!!!!!!
