    Subwoofer for RF-63

    Maybe he's trying to help with my quest for a sub? Nah probably not.

    I have a nice Westinghouse quad made in Japan from the early 70's. They were NOS. I think they sound much better then my Winged C's. If I can ever find another quad of the Westinghouse I'd jump on them in a second.

    Subwoofer for RF-63

    Can you stretch your budget a bit? Maybe another $200.00? Oh, I see you never confirmed your budget. What is the max you are willing to spend? Bill Right now in the $500 range. I don't want to cut into my RC-64 budget but I at least wanted to get the ball rolling on which subs may or may not be a good fit.

    The sub will only be used for HT.

    How about a R-12SW with the 63's?

    I think the same guy has a Marantz 9 for sale too. Quite the collection

    SOLD!

    rocko you want the older rc-64 buddy totally different tweeters and WAY different timber. The rf-7ii and rf-63 have a completely different tone to them and the center are matched with their respective towers. Keep an eye and be real patient. Good thing is the longer you wait cheaper it will most likely get when you find one. Gotcha! I'll keep waiting, didn't realize there was such a difference but that's the reason I'm part of the Forum.

    Sooo Impressed!

    After a long hiatus from HT I've finally started getting back into recently. I picked up some RF-63's off my local CL for a great deal, so I figured it was time to reconfigure my man cave and get the HT kicking. Up front I have the RF-63's Rear surrounds are now my RB-35's Both powered by a Marantz NR1402 receiver. No center or sub yet. All I can say is wow! I used the set up mic on the Marantz and it did wonders. The bass shakes the couch. I'll probably end up grabbing a 5ch amp and using the Marantz as a pre for now. Eventually I'd like to add an RC-64 and a sub although I don't really feel it's needed, but hell is any of this really "needed'? I had forgot how impressive the RF-63's are. I know I'll take some heat but dare I say I like them better then my Cornwall III's??? -R

    I couldn't have said it better myself. The UMC-1 is now listed on Craigslist.

    I just put in a cd. What a muddled pile of garbage it sounds like. The Emotiva is a huge disappointment.

    Sooo Impressed!

    The 63's were thunderous with 50wpc. They sounded great in two channel and HT. Now it's just flat and lifeless. I set the Emotiva back to the factory settings and played with the EQ. Still no luck.

    Hi Bryant, I totally welcome your opinion. That's what I'm here for. I plan on adding a center and a sub. In the meantime I came across the Emotiva and borrowed the Proton. I was/am very happy with the Marantz. All I was looking for was the Emotiva to be equil to the sound of the Marantz. At this point I'm very surprised at how lame sounding the Emo is. Maybe I'm missing something on the Emotiva? Thanks, Rick

    Go into the eq and eq the bass up. The emo has a few places you can turn up the bass. But the eq would be the best. I run a umc1 on a pair of cornwalls and they pound the bass like crazy. I looked around but didn't see too much in the way of correcting the bass. I have the manual as well but that didn't say too much either. There's a HUGE difference between the two. The crappy low and marantz would make the furniture shake. The Emo/proton combo is extremely disappointing.

    The proton is 60 Wpc the Marantz is 50wpc.

    Sooo Impressed!

    So I picked up an Emotiva UMC-1 and borrowed a friends Proton amp. I'm totally underwhelmed. The Marantz NR1401 has way more balls with a hell of a lot more bass coming from my 63's. Not sure if it's the amp or the Emotiva. Maybe the Marantz is just that good?

    Don't know your budget or if this is a good price, but I know this SVS will destabilize your foundation. http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/ele/4801300934.html Bill Whoa! Talking about spilling the popcorn everywhere.
