    agreed, and I have done the same thing in already being older than my Dad. he was taken from us too young. had a massive stroke at 55, died of C at 57. as I approached & passed the anniv of his death when I was 57, it was difficult. I have been able to move on. either we do or we don't. hopefully we all are strong enough to pass most challenges given us.

    Help buying new TV, old one died (TV bought!)

    we bought our last TV - Samsung UN55HU7200 55" curved screen 4k UHD about 3-4 yrs ago. Samsung seemed to have the best picture in a close race I think over Vizio. fiance was hard to move away from the curved screen feature, but PQ was excellent. ours has done very well. not completely problem free but very good.

    but the picture you offer there is just ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. what's wrong with it? oh wait - I know this... it's the content that is ruining that shot.

    so does anyone have any opinions on comparison of this to any "ready-made, plug & play" products like R-115SW, any SVS products, etc.? bang per $ lol, frequency comparisons, SPL? thanks in advance. -John

    thanks Dave. appreciate your input as well as Emile's. and as I'm typically slow to react when needing (more WANTING than needing. I'm sure you fellas know exactly what I mean.) WAF to spend the coin, this probably won't happen anytime soon. but again, doing what I do, I like to try to gather experienced advice to try to make the best possible informed decision.

    I understand. mine, well my wife-to-be, has cut me off regarding speakers. she says NO MO. but she's also said "they don't get any bigger than the K horn, do they?" of course I answered with a BIG smile "oh yeah. here, check these babies out!!!" as you can see, right now our room just has little room for anything more. as a slight aside - I only recently became re-employed following a post murder merger downsizing. while job searching we were ready to move elsewhere if a good job dictated it. we didn't have to move. so that has become a hopeful elective possibility down the road. I would like something a little larger than we have now. WITH CORNERS 😎

    @Emile I wish I could use a Heresy, 3rd Cornwall, or had other choices. but this is the setup that passed the WAF so this is what I have to work with.

    gotcha. and I agree that using either my source (AVR) or even using 1 ch from my Acurus main amp (200w) I don't think would be really enough power to adequately drive a sub well. and thanks for the idea on your Dayton. hadn't thought or searching the bay, but excellent idea, given proper vetting prior to purchase. doing what I do, I made a list of what seemed to be most highly recommended center ch speakers. I do think eventually I'll be adding one of them too. may have a lot to offer. what I think I like at this point are, in order of my preference beginning with most preferred: 1) - KLF-C7; 2) - RC-64 ii 3) - RC-62 ii

    @Cody_Mack correct. no 'actual' center speaker (at this time). down the road, maybe, but not right now. I like the current setup I have. the fiance thinks we need a center (or wants one). maybe we do. right now, I'm not convinced. I want the LFE/ lows particularly in the action movie genre we both enjoy. good luck in your search as well Rick. thanks! -John

    @Emile - thanks for the feedback Emile. sounds like you like yours pretty well, positively impressed with sound, overall results, build quality - all that. by "passive" use - and I do ask that, as I'm not sure if I'm using the term correctly - I ask if I use the term correctly here, that this type kit would be a passive kit as in the amp is separate from the sub. as compared to for ex a R-115SW that I think has amp + speaker all in one so to speak that I also ask is that one an "active" sub? at any rate, thanks again for your contribution sir. you're ok. I don't care what everyone else says.
