  1. Did you mean PUSHING R-83s or PUNISHING them?~?!

    I hooked up a QSC amp to mine that had 265 watts/ch and cranked it up pretty good. Crystal clear and plenty of bass. Over the loudness, I believe I distinctly heard them shout out to me, "Is that all you've got?" Trust me, they can handle plenty of clean power.

    I've run 400 watts of Sunfire amp into mine and my EARS were being punished...

  2. Let me share something different I tried recently with my Sunfire system & Carver AL-III speakers:

    I am now actively bi-amping (with stock AL-III crossovers still in
    place) my AL-IIIs through my Sunfire Theater Grand-IV preamp by running the Mains with a
    150 hz crossover as small speakers out to two of my Sunfire Cinema Grand (400~7) channels and
    on to the RIBBONS ONLY. Then I run the Sub 2 & 3 output (below
    150 hz) to two more 400~7 channels and on to the WOOFERS ONLY. I have a Klipsch RT-12d sub running off the Sub 1 output from the TG-IV which I've adjusted down -12dB from reference, crossover set at 40 hz w/ a 48 db/octave slope. I'm running the woofer outputs on the TG-IV at -3 dB from reference. I've
    been using this setup for about 2 weeks now and let me tell you it's
    INCREDIBLE how much more headroom I've gotten out of this setup (at least 6
    dB). I can drive it to MUCH higher levels now with less distortion and
    don't blow fuses as often as I used to. I can actually feel "puffs" of
    air from the forward firing port of the woofers up to 15 feet away (over 20 feet with the cannons on SACD of 1812 Overture~)!


  3. Gary, this thread should be in 2-channel, where I think a lot more people will look at it. At least a link and a copy of your multi-pic post. It looks like a terrific event, and definitely the kind of mountain greenery setting I really like for meetings and conferences! Did you take your Carver Amazing Loudspeakers there?

    TNRabbit's system with the "Carver Amazing" loudspeakers really is amazing in how it fills his listening room with spacious music sound. Gave me real pause.

    You should think about coming up for the Strathmore Klipsch fest. MD-VA-DC Strathmore Tchaikovsky 4th Klipschfest, Saturday, April 25...


    Sorry, Larry; I was reading through this and realized I never answered you. Pics from above were my Amazing Loudspeakers (III model):

  4. Welcome to the forum Hamboneosu,

    I wouldn't worry about bi wiring your speakers and the best connection for your sub will be going from your AVR's SUBWOOFER OUT and get a y-splitter at the end of your subwoofer cable to connect to the RW 12d's L & R IN.

    If you're connecting from the LFE/Subwooofer output, you do NOT need to split it. The R/L inputs on the sub are summed into one so it makes no damn difference!

  5. specs - onkyo tx-sr505, 2xB3's, ksw10 sub

    for the life of me i cannot get the subwoofer to work when plugged in to the receiver pre-amp out, can anyone help me? subwoofer is fine if i connect it to the line in on the sub and left and right front speaker connectors on the receiver, problem now is where do i plug in my other 2 front speakers? receiver is connected to my pc. any feedback would be greatly appreciated. thank you

    In page 10 of your receiver owner's manual, it lists Item 15 as the subwoofer pre-out. That's what you need to be connected from...you need to go RCA from there to the LFE input on the back of the sub.

  6. I have the RT-12d. It's a great sub, but for it's price, there are better at or below that price. Epik makes some awesome subs that retail way less than this one. That said it IS a good sub, but for it's size just doesn't dig as deep as some others.
