  1. I hope that wasn't the only reason for parting with them.
  2. If you're on a tight budget, look at used or refurbished. Accessories4Less is a good option. Just make sure you don't hold up on power ratings. Most of them are grossly inflated. Outline your features you want and then if you're having trouble, just holler at us.
  3. AVR's utilized multi-channel audio as far back as the 1990s. I know my RX-V530 from 2002 (my first non HTIB AVR, I was 12) did have 5 channel stereo. AVR's prior to that had a Dolby LCR mode that was marketed as 3-Stereo, but most Yamaha's back to the 390 in 1999 also had multi-channel stereo. You won't need to break bank to do what you're wanting to do at all and any AVR that you get that's worth a damn has the feature built in. Be advised though, you will have a power drop in using multi-channel stereo, it won't pack the punch that stereo mode itself has.
  4. They're on the breadbox board - the originals were to be mated to the terminal cup. I don't see why you couldn't screw them into the cabinet, they have about 4 inches of wire that runs from the XO to the terminal, so you should be able to place them near the terminal.
  5. Hey guys. I am now left with the old crossovers from the pair of Chorus II that I restored for a buddy. They're in good shape, though one of the leads could use a resoldering. I'm asking $75 shipped and PayPal'd for them. They're already boxed up and ready to go. See pic two for the frayed wire.
  6. The jumpers would be where the terminal is. It'd be tied red-to-red, black-to-black. Are you referring to a setting on your amp? Klipsch don't have adjustable impedance.
  7. "Assistant Command Historian History Kid" is a bit of a mouthful, yeah.
  8. They shut the post down today, and again tomorrow - so I've been cooped up getting cabin fever...
  9. I would offer $200 and settle at $250. The 35's aren't common, but generally can be had in decent shape between 300-500. The condition and need has me pitching the ball lower on this one. $300 is fair - it's just not really a "great" deal - nothing I'd jump on in a hurry.
  10. The room with my HOO's was 21 F this morning. It's up to 50 F right now, but this cold is something else. It doesn't help that there's a whole second half of the house that isn't original and they never ran central heat to it. Meanwhile the rest of the house is toasty at 70. Heading down to -30 tonight with -60 wind chills.
  11. You get to call me Professor in 8 months. You get to call me Dr. in 2 more years. How do I hatefully dislike a post?
  12. Not new anyway. No place for them. Lol Besides, at this point it's just preparing for when the house is mine.
  13. *begrudgingly responsible purchase is begrudgingly responsible...*
  14. Right on. I'm currently toying with the idea of replacing the 103. I'll see where I am on the next paycheck.
  15. I only asked because I'm interested, and it seems the OP has previously run his set up in this way. So I'm curious.
  16. Does the 203 have the same issue with noise floor as the 103 did? I remember running my UPA's on the 103, and the dead air noise was so loud I may as well have been listening to static.
  17. My Denon 4200 is running 4 RS-3's - that's about it. That being said, it's probably kicking out somewhere between 75-95 WPC. It's more than enough for the rear. That being said, unless you get an amp that can match at 90 WPC or better, with that setup - I probably wouldn't worry about it too much. Are you mainly going for a compacted HT setup?
  18. OP, in the future - do not utilize A4L's support. These are units refurbished by the manufacturer and carry manufacturer warranties and support. You should (in the future, if there is another purchase) contact Yamaha. They will handle the issue. I am speaking from experience. A4L is a third party, and once the transaction is complete, you should take up issues with the manufacturer.
  19. Not sure if anyone else can view these, but this just popped up on the Facebook Marketplace in Portage, MI. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/371684903614663
  20. I'm almost entirely serious. haha
  21. Get a second pair for me. I'll figure out shipping later. lol
  22. To add to wuzzzer's comment, 5.1's side surround schematic generally calls for WDST or other multi-pole speaker configurations, meaning that you'd be better off getting a speaker designed for surround duty rather than a monitor. You want a broad dispersion of sound on the sides.
  23. Thanks. Can anyone else here echo this? If they were mine, I'd have no problems with this, but since they're a friend's I'd like to be sure.
