  1. Awesome. Thanks for finding the pic.
  2. I've been trying to figure out what sub to get. I'm concerned about putting a rear ported sub in a corner. I see the RW12d says it's a corner ported sub and maybe even front ported, but when I look at pics of the sub I don't see any ports. What am I missing?
  3. So the RC 35 has a little less power handling capability and it's not quite as deep as the 62 and 62ii. But do the three of these speakers sound any different? Will they all match up pretty good with a pair of RB 81s? I'm looking at used prices and the 35s go for so much cheaper I'm wondering what the arguements would be for getting 62s or 62iis. Thanks
  4. Got them today. Shipping box was trashed! One of the bottom corners wall smashed in and just about torn through on two of the adjacent sides. But the speakers survived! I'll take back at least 1/2 of all the bad things I've said about N.E. Pats fans over the last decade. Good deal man. Thanks.
  5. PM sent...for just the speakers. Don't need the stands.
  6. Alan, I got the 42's you sent me today. They look great. Can't wait to hook em up!
  7. I don't spend alot of time trying to add photos to websites. I tried here to link some pics but it didn't work. I don't think I care enough to try again. The bookshelf speakers are front ported, so I assume I don't need much room behind them.
  8. OK, that's a pretty unanimous "no". So either larger front L/R speakers or a smaller center channel. Smaller ctr channel certainly makes the purchase cheaper. My room is not ideal for surround sound at all. I know this, but I'll describe it and try to add some pics after I post this. The TV is in the corner of the room. The wall on the right side of the tv is windows with my 2 channel set up in front of them (also less then an ideal location for that set up). For my surround sound set up the right front speaker is going to have to sit on top of my RF-7 (I can't use the RF 7's as my front L/R speakers. I have no room on the left side of the TV for an RF-7 due to a fireplace.), but it will be angled toward the TV viewers. The living room measures 15.5 ft wide x 16.5 deep. It is wide open to the kitchen that adds another 19 ft of depth. It it partially open to the dining room/front room that measures 14x20 with 16ft cielings. The TV is viewed from about 14 ft. I know I can only fit the RS-42's. From the sound of the posts, I should try to match the front speakers to the ctr speaker and call it day. Will and RC-42 and RB-41s work for my room or should I go larger 50 or 60 series?
  9. I have the room for an RC 64 and I read somewhere that 70+% of your sound in a HT comes from the ctr channel speaker, so I want the best ctr channel speaker I can. The problem is that I don't have room on my right side (wall space occupied by door and windows) for surrounds bigger then the RS 42. So I thought if I had to have the RS 42, then I should probably use a pair of RB 41s for the front L/R speakers. Will this be OK or would I be better off matching my front L/R with my font Ctr and get a pair of the RB 61 speakers? Maybe an easier way to ask the question is; I will have a RC 64 and a pair of RS 42 speakers. What front L/R speakers should I buy? Thanks.
  10. 103db efficientcy. They play plenty loud and and sound good with 25W. I used to have a high gain 300W solid state amp powering them. I thought it sounding great. The bass was fantastic, but because of the gain on the amp I had next to nothing for volume control. I could literally use about 1/8 or less of the volume knob. At 1/4 turn you had to make a hell of an effort to understand what the person yelling to you from 4 ft away was saying. It was painful and very very unrealistic for everyday use. I wish I could have that bass with the volume control I have now. I'd really like to try the Quicksilver Silver 88s, but unless I get get for .25 on the dollar, that isn't gonna happen. I'm partial to quicksilvers hand wiring, no circuit boards, keep it simple style.
  11. So if I go that route, I still have the same and more tube options. It looks like the KT88's are the standard with this amp. Is that what you guys who recommend the amp heard with it?
  12. I own RF-7s powered by quicksilver mini mites. (25W) The mini mites will take EL34, KT90, KT88, KT77, KT66, 6550 or 6L6 output tubes. They currently have their original EL34s in them. It think it sounds good, but I'm willing to make a change. Any suggestions? Any idea what changes I might expect to hear with a different type of tube? A little more bass would be nice. Would I need more power for that? Thanks.
  13. Would upgrading the crossover help?
  14. I really hope it's over tonight. Being a Wings fan, I don't want to see them fight through another long series prior to the finals.
