  1. New Sony OLED

    I'm confused, how can you use a tv without removing it from the box?
  2. What I Got Today!

    Rw12d subwoofer. Tried to post pic but it was too large I guess. Great price 200 bucks well worth that. Slightly better than my sub12s although I don't think it plays as low it does have more punch. That could also be because it's right behind my sitting position and front firing
  3. Crossover and speaker settings - Help Please!

    Well they're popular to me and I choose to let them play full range and use my subs to augment the bass, not take it from my mains.
  4. Crossover and speaker settings - Help Please!

    I have heard both sides of this argument and understand the pros and cons of each but my question is, if you're going to neuter your mains by hardly sending any bass to them, why not just use a bunch of bookshelves and let your subs handle all the bass. I mean what's the point of having 15 inch drivers that only play from 80hz up?
  5. Favorite SS Reciever for 2 channel listening

    That's what I'm using with my lascala's

  7. So how awesome are Heresy III's? Want to see?

    Even on my phone this sounded good. Very clear
  8. WTB La Scala II in Walnut

    Kinda off topic but do the lascala 2"s sound much different than lascalas? I like the one piece cabinet better than the two also
  9. Khorn sealed but lacking

    I have what is according to some one of the best ever avr"s. A denon avr 4311ci and it was much better than my previous lower end onkyo but when I added the Bose 1801 power amp it made a world of difference. Just cleaner, clearer sound more dynamics and louder without sounding strained at all. I highly recommend a separate amplifier even if only for your mains like I am doing. Thinking about getting getting another 2 channel or better yet a 3 channel amp for the other speakers in my system
  10. Strange indeed: mega-watt harm to LaScalas

    I really just wanted to see what they could do with a lot of clean power fed to them, and it's a lot. I gave up before they did lol. According to the meters on the amp I rarely hit the 62.5 watt level and that is unbelievably loud. Peaks are usually hitting the 30 watt level
  11. Strange indeed: mega-watt harm to LaScalas

    I'm now running a Bose 1801 amp with my lascala's. 250wpc 8 ohms. Love it. Better than my denon avr4311ci.
  12. Reference Series vs Reference Premiere.

    Power rating tells you nothing about how a speaker sounds
  13. We're using 2 to 12 subwoofers with huge floorstanders for everything
  14. Klipsch Sub 12 vs R-112SW

    I agree with Derrick 100 percent. Bigger is almost always better. I was just saying comparing 12 inch subs only, the sub 12 is a fine performer. If I had the chance to upgrade to 2 15s or 2 18s I'd do it In a heartbeat
