  1. Don't buy it...bought one last year and the very first time I turned it on one channel blew out and it never worked again.   Never even got a chance to hear it with my Lascalas.    Took a long time to get my money back as well after the return.


  2. I noticed the ad also says that the FIII is the 1st truly full range heritage speaker....what the hell are the other ones?   Didn't realize my Khorns, Scalas and Cornwalls were essentially large bookshelf speakers...so these aren't full range speakers.  Really?

    I have seen almost everyone I ever wanted to see. I would say my most memorable show was the "Monsters of Rock".


    Kingdom Come




    Van Halen


    The concert was amazing, even though the Pontiac Silverdome was a horrible acoustic venue. To think we saw five well known bands in one venue for $35 is crazy. My wife was thinking of going to a Bon Jovi concert last year with our daughter and the tickets were nearly $200 a piece!



     I saw this same concert in 1988 at Giants stadium in the Meadowlands.   That was just when Metallica was about to take over the world and they played all their new songs from And justice for all.   They blew everyone else away.   Crazy mosh pits all over the floor area.   Great time.

  4. I have a pair of Quartets in very good condition.  A guy near me is selling Forte II cabs with no speakers or crossovers, grills or risers for $40.    Is it worth it to swap the tweets and mids over and buy the woofers and passives.    Will the crossover work as is or will I need to mod that as well or get an entirely new crossover?


    Is there a real upgrade to be had or should I just leave well enough alone?      Where would I look for the woofers and passives if I was to go that route, would like to see some prices.



  5. I have 2 Aura's on my couch, I think they are cool too.   Very cheap really and it adds to the whole movie special effects.  My system is in my basement on concrete slab so none of the shake of my subwoofer makes through the floor into any seating location.   Like you said they are great when you can't blast the sub but still want that feel.  

  6. Many times when you go to see bands in clubs and bars you end up looking how the speakers and sound equipment is set up.  I noticed that many musicians put a mic on a boom and place it in front of a monitor or speaker.   It seems obvious that they are then going to amplify that sound.    Isn't that going to introduce a ton of distortion as compared to traditional ways to amplify the sound.   I would love to understand what they are doing and why.


    BTW I just went and saw Sonny Landreth last night and he was awesome, and yes he had one of the monitors behind him mic'd up which is what got me thinking about all of this.

  7. I bought the 301 last spring, crutchfield had them marked down and there was a factory rebate got it for $299 new.    I really bought it for my daughter to use in her room but before I gave it to her I hooked it up to my Quartets in my room.    I thought it was great, plenty of power and very detailed sound with no noise at all.  Blutooth works well even though you loose a little fidelity as compared to hard connection.     I would buy another one without a doubt, if that deal comes around again I might be forced to get another one.
