  1. Horn sub best matches with horn speakers. Good idea to upgrade that that crossover.
  2. Guys could he build a couple or have a couple or buy a couple of those Danley Spuds and use them as walls behind the Khorns. I saw plenty of placement options but he seems to have his mindset on something small. Well those panels have to stay where they are in the pic same as the shelves, what other options do you see??? Looks to me like a long style table tuba would fit under your record cabinet, maybe even a slim THTLP. A pair of long table tubas should fit to the inside of the mains or maybe slide your stereo cabinet and the other things you have covered up to one side or the other and it should fit a THTLP. A pair of Slim Table tubas could go behind the K-horns or in front. Whats on the other side of the room ? Table Tuba's can be built as small as 12"x30"x30" and the LP version 12"x15"x60" + legs if needed. Loaded with an 8" driver THT as small as 15"x36"x36" or for the LP 15"x18"x72 loaded with a 12. Take some measurements, one of these options will fit and blend better with your horns than a direct radiating subwoofer. Do you have any pic's of these subs you are talking about? I don't currently have any slim cabinets built, just 2 15" Table Tubas, one is a unfinished LP version but there is some generic pictures on the websight. The finish can be anything you want. http://www.billfitzmaurice.com/THT.html http://www.billfitzmaurice.com/TT.html

  5. Parts express can also refoam your woofer.
  6. No i havent but it will work just as good for the TV as it would a computer. It will be a good add on for your living room sound. Just plug in to your headphone jack or get an adapter for RCA connection if needed.
  7. I agree, remove the cabinet the TV is on and install a slim THT or TT and reuse the top you already have in place. What is the width and depth of your cove ?
  8. I was at the Aerosmith / Ted Nugent concert at the Rosemont Horizon (now Allstate Arena). Aerosmith was really bad. Ted Nugent was awesome as usual. Probably early 80s or so. We lived within walking distance from Rosemont Horizon, almost every week i went to see something but this was when ticket prices were reasonable. I want to see the Rolling Stones when they come around but ticket prices are through the roof.
  9. Most of my albums were ruined in an apartment i had, the upstairs neighbor left the window open during a rainstorm and water ran down the wall and soaked 100s of my albums, most had to be thrown out. I had a hard to find import AC/DC TNT that i have not seen since was ruined along with my For those about to rock, many more still need to be replaced.
  10. I was just at the local music store yesterday and saw brand new AC/DC albums in the record section. $18-20 is a far cry from what i paid for my old vinyl albums but its nice to know they are available. They put on a good show live too, i saw The Back in Black, For those about to rock, Flick of the switch & Fly on the wall tours back in the day. When the bell was hit with the sledgehammer in the opening of Hells Bells i thought the stadium would collapse. Same with the cannons on For those about to rock. The older stuff is better in my opinion but thats what i grew up listening to. Everything from High Voltage to For those about to rock plays often on my system. Highway to hell is probably my favorite, good all the way through.
  11. Finding something that plays nice with K-Horns and is small is going to be a problem. Sealed subs will be the next best thing in my opinion but using just one may not be up to the task.
  12. As long as the TV is secured well i don't see a problem.
  13. My son Jeff spends much of his spare time making U-Tube videos of him and his friends doing crazy stuff on his skateboards. It drives me nuts knowing another injury is just around the corner. Jumping off stairways and riding the handrail, up and down these half pipes doing tricks, jumping ramps & flipping the skateboard in the process. I sure wish he would find some safer way to have fun.
  14. If you are anywhere within a reasonable distance from Chicago i would be happy to bring over a Table Tuba for some testing. Unfortunately i don't currently have an extra THT on hand or that would be available too.
  15. If you were looking to add a ceiling to your room you could add soundproof material between your floor joists, there is now a shreeded denim insulation that will work even better than spun fiberglass.
  16. The long version of the TT can be built as slim as 15x12 footprint assuming height is no issue + you can veneer to match your K horns.
  17. What ever happend to those Watts Dustbug cleaners. You would put solution on the round brush and it would track on its own arm and clean while you played your record.
  18. Tuba HT would be a great match.
  19. I have an Adcom GFA 5500 that i have used on a few sets of speakers including my Chorus II's and La Scala"s. There is no noise at all coming from the amp and am very happy with the sound quality. I have also had many Adcom preamps, all have had issues including hiss from the speakers with the volume all the way down. Currently running a NAD preamp with the Adcom and vey happy with the pairing.
  20. The crap laying around the garage here is TFC T10 Coaxial cable. From center out 18 Gauge center conductor (Copper) Dielectric Foil sheild Braided shield (copper) Black outer jacket
  21. I ran coaxial cable once on my garage stereo because i have spools of it left over from a long run on a job. Worst thing i ever used. Sounded like crap. Went right over to Radio Shack and picked up a stretch of 14 gauge wire. Still have tons of coax in the garage if anybody wants to try some out, just pay for shipping. This was ran with my old Pioneer SX780 & a set of 70's 4 ways.
  22. Brand new Promedia 2.1's run $150, well under budget.
  23. Most soundbars sound like crap. Rinky dink drivers in a flimsy box doesen't cut it in my opinion. Tell them to pick up a set of ProMedia 2.1's, hard to go wrong with these compact good sounding speaker set. I can also recommend the Klipsch HD theater 300 system, my buddy has them in his living room. Smaller size and nice sound for little cash. If it must be a soundbar style go checkout the new Klipsch models, wont hurt to go have a look. If you check them out be sure to post back and let us know what you think. *Looks like Chad beat me to it.
  24. Looks like it would be useful under a cabinet for casual TV watching. With the bottlecap size speakers most newer models are using you need something to enhance the sound.
  25. You could always use Heatware, its a seller/buyer rating system. http://www.heatware.com/index.php
