  1. Don't stain. Stain is intended for cheaper woods to male them look nicer. I built most of my furniture with black walnut (darker than regular), and even built a subwoofer with walnut ply. I'd say use a semi gloss or satin finish. I haven't been very pleased with oil based compared to some of the newer water based products (I think I used sparathane from home depot). If you're wanting it just a little darker, go with an oiled finish that had a slight color to it. You can add as many coats as you like until it's the color you want they also make it without a tint, and it's not a bad way to finish it, either. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  2. I've kept these for a while, but don't have a need for them anymore. I built some insulated crates for some Forte 2s for my last move, and I still have the original shipping box for my Heresy 2. I'm offering them for free (Houston area), or shipping at your cost if interested. Can provide pictures if needed, but they look like shipping crates insulated with 1/2 inch polystyrene.

  3. Just upgraded a few things and have these sitting around the house. The CT125s were in my LSIs and sounded great, just decided to go another route. CT125 - SOLD Schiit Sys - SOLD Let me know if you have any questions. I'm located on the North side of Houston, if anyone is local.
  4. I noticed that. They've got lots of juice for 2-4 ohm, but it's cut significantly at 8 (1/4 advertised power). I don't need a ton of power, just don't feel like paying gobs of money for TI, and these appear to be the middle ground. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  5. I haven't made my mind up about the boards yet. I planned on using the 3e audio boards, but they're out of stock, currently. I've got a TI eval board in my other amp, and love it. There's some Chinese clones of those boards (same layout, and appears to use similar parts), so I'm considering those. I like the 3e boards because they have 3 channel TPA3251s, which I could use for the fronts, with a 2 channel for the rears, just need to wait for them to restock.

  6. I'll be building a multi-channel amp in the coming weeks, and this question has been on my mind...linear vs switching. @twk123, which one did you go with, and would you go that route again? I already put together a TPA3255 with a linear supply and it sounds phenominal, but if I can go lighter on the PS, that wouldn't be bad. I'll be putting together a 5 channel receiver with TPA3255s or 51s, with individual level adjustments per channel, and a master volume control. After reading all of the recommendations, I'm leaning towards a switching PS, just wanted to see how happy you were with the results.
  7. This will do it. I've got an F20 and I've had the gain set at roughly 1/3. Message me if you've got any questions.
  8. I've decided to look for another sub amp, and I'm listing this one for sale. I recently sent my Dayton SPA500 in for service and they sent me a brand new unit, so it's still in the box. This amp has more than enough power for any sub you throw at it, but it's way too much for my living room. I can also include the walnut housing if you're interested.
