  1. The goal of what I suggested is to no void your warranty, which you're treading on. It's not at all improvised it's the preferred method of taking HF in most horns.
  2. The lower line Yamaha's (even the old models) tended to play poorly with Klipsch - IMO. I moved from an RX-V530 to a 730 for that very reason actually. The V381 is an entry level Yamaha - so that might be a contributing factor into it. That being said, there are better ways to accomplish what you're wanting. There are things you can place over the horn - if I remember right - that would help tame it a bit more. Time seems to break them in too. Someone should chime in with more info on the modification - I never had issues, because I ended up moving AVR's around/upgrading.
  3. Forte III bi wire

    How would you require a bi-wire? Jumper cables are cheap to make, and can be had with little time or effort - and are essentially what bridges are...
  4. Non expensive CD player

    I see many Rotel and Marantz CD players under the $100 mark. I've also seen a fair share of Denon, Onkyo, and Yamaha players under that as well. Most of the Yamaha's though are changers - and I've preferred lately to stay with single disc players. There are a few Sony ES players out there that you can find under $100 too. I have an C85ES right now that I need to get back to that needs fixing up. It's a great unit.
  5. Forte III bi wire

    I actually rather wish Klipsch would stop making dual binding posts - or at least stop marketing it as a means for bi-wiring and bi-amping. Hell, even at least explain how to bi-amp and what is necessary for true passive bi-amping (as John is talking about) where two amps are required for an appreciable power increase, and active bi-amping (with a crossover). I've yet to see an AVR that executes a bi-amp the way it's supposed to be executed, and if it's wrong, it's not right. AVR bi-amping is a glorified bi-wire, afaic.
  6. "The Vietnam War" on PBS

    That is almost undeniably why "history repeats itself."
  7. "The Vietnam War" on PBS

    We watched portions of it in class. It was a well designed documentary. The problem with Vietnam - and many historians agree - is that it is a massive undertaking when dealing with historical accuracy. It's virtually impossible to get all of the aspects down too. Some things we may never have the truth on about it.
  8. What I Got Today!

    Picked up a monster today. 5 hours in the van and $450 later. Man...that 10 looks tiny now... The guy still has a Cherry 15 for $500 and another black one for $475. He's moving Friday, so these are only around until then...
  9. RP-160m vs. RP-150m for near-field listening

    I was going to pose the option of my RSW-10. It would run you a little more, but it's one the more beefy subs to go with beefy monitors. Don't know exactly where Labanon is though. Feel like it's near Jeff Co.
  10. RP-160m vs. RP-150m for near-field listening

    It is a "reference (not really)" subwoofer though...it probably will sound boomy. I wouldn't consider anything less than the R-110SW. What's your budget?
  11. RP-160m vs. RP-150m for near-field listening

    Remember that a monitor is still a monitor. You're going to have limited bass response there. That being said - the 160s provide excellent bass response with tight and accurate bass. There are some bookshelf speakers that execute bass better that others - but save for the puritans who insist on 2.0 listening, most will argue a sub will be beneficial.
  12. Real Deal, he said so Firm. $440

    Damn Pyle, adding drivers that aren't really drivers.
  13. Real Deal, he said so Firm. $440

    I prefer the ones I got in box with the passive radiator for $80 - same finish. Don't know if they're Pre Pyle though......don't know if I care if they're pre Pyle either.........
  14. Real Deal, he said so Firm. $440

    Maybe he means Vox? But even then that's not until fairly recently in the scope of company history...it's not hard to find Klipsch products pre-Vox.
  15. Real Deal, he said so Firm. $440

    Before Pyle licensed Klipsch...wat? KG-2's, no passive? Wat?
