    MC 257 MKVI humming

    I use something like this for my subs over the past several years. It can also be used for a speaker. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_127SNI1/PAC-SNI-1.html?tp=61807

    Ohio State's Urban Meyer on one of his players: "He doesn't know the meaning of the word fear. In fact, I just saw his grades and he doesn't know the meaning of a lot of words." Why do Tennessee fans wear orange?

 So they can dress that way for the game on Saturday, go hunting on Sunday, and pick up trash on Monday. What do you say to a University of Miami Hurricane football player dressed in a three-piece suit? "

"Will the defendant please rise." If three Florida State football players are in the same car, who is driving?

The police officer.

    Removed OPPO UDP-205 no longer available

    In our forum, people have almost always listed a price. We don't step on each other to get items. Oppo is going out of business. This makes some people think they are worth more money but, the contrary is true when it comes to electronics.

    Removed OPPO UDP-205 no longer available

    I own an Oppo and they are over priced for what you get. They are good units but, Samsung, Sony and Panasonic offer the same value for much less. List a price and stop playing games. This is not Ebay.

    Well, the OSU vs Tulane game is getting ugly. I may have to turn to a more interesting game. The score is 21-0 in favor of the Buckeyes.

    First Home Theater Setup

    Also, considering buying used speakers. They will help with the budget. Basement location does require more subwooferage. Due to ceiling height and basement construction, consider in-wall surround. I have tried stands, mounting on wall and in-wall. They are all nearly equal in performance and in-wall makes wire management easier.

    Bridged mode...

    I would find a way to add a second or third sub. powering the sub is not the problem. You are outdoor and not getting much room gain, The only solution is more subs or a more powerful sub which has to be much larger. This system is most likely just for music. Some Pro line speakers may be another options if you are looking to get really loud . A subwoofer that does well in the 60-100 Hz area would be excellent for outdoors.

    Bridged mode...

    The amp is 1000 w X 4 or 250 w/ch. The sub is 200 /500 w RMS/peak. No real benefit with bridging the amp. Bridging may result in a blown driver. Bridging will not net much in volume. Doubling the power(watt) will add 3 db which is barely noticeable. Welcome to the forum. Tell us more about the audio system, room and your goals. In general you need a lot of subs to get Reference level volume.
  10. What makes you think the larger horn driver will match well with the rest of the speaker or make it better. The original RF 7's can be obtained for a reasonable cost especially if they are not pristine.

    Teacher Question about Netiquette

    I think the real thing needed is for the teacher to lead the topic and lend some structure to the topic. Each student should have to contribute 2-3 post per discussion. Their grade should be based on participation and not content. Even strange content can generate excellent responses later in the post. Good Luck Mangofirst.

    TCU is an outstanding team. I would be lying if I said I was not worried for a lot of that game. TCU is scary to play against and has a good coach.

    RP-450C - Space Required Behind the Speaker

    The TV stand appear to be mesh and should not interfere with the speaker. The sub does not have to be between or next to the front speakers. Subwoofer frequency are omnidirectional for the most part. Welcome to the forum.

    Oppo Hanging up Their Hat

    it's a tough business when you have a small share of the market. Samsung, Sony and Panasonic all make very competitive BDP for a fraction of the cost. These companies also offer more streaming choices which is becoming very popular. Sad to see a USA product/factory go out of business.

    The last post was all in fun and no pun meant for MSU or TCU fans.
