  1. interested in this if still available. pm in your inbox.
  2. @jason str thank you for the info sir. looks good. thanks also for direct link, and link to mounting frame too. I'm obviously a newbie to much of this, and especially on this topic. about closing up the current opening: what thickness plywood "cover" would you suggest? do you think 1/2" is thick enough but not too thick? thicker? and, is there a "sealant" type product you would recommend to use on the "cover" above to try to ensure the seal? something like a foam weatherstrip sealing tape from a home improvement store? or something different? thanks much for your help sir! greatly appreciated!!!
  3. hello. I've brought home a rescue RW-10 that I am troubleshooting. I got it as a project, seller told me it didn't work. when I got it home I found that the fuse has been removed. as I explore the reason for this, I have read online about the frequent amp failures with similar powered subs. if the amp turns out to have failed, does anyone have any specific amp suggestions for replacement? factory amp is a BASH amp, spec sheet says FTC rated 260w continuous; dynamic power 575w. spec sheet link the driver looks to be fine, tests 3.8 ohms, K-1133-O are there specific suggestions from PE or similar for external amp replacement of the BASH amp? thanks.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. yes, MUCH better!!! Thank you!!! riiiiiigght - McDonald's drinks. that's it
  9. 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.

    DIY kit-feedback

    so I have decided (and been informed from comments/answers to previous questions) that I want to add at least 1 sub to my system, used 80% HT, Cornwall mains, phantom center, and R-28F rears. I'd love to go what seems to be really strong with an SVS or R-115SW but the fiance would be more willing to go along with cost of a DIY, and would probably like to get her hands in on the build too, so that could be a plus. I want to add as much low end for mostly movies as possible but size is a concern. size: I'm thinking a sealed or ported sub about the size of a 115sw. room: is an open concept floor plan, LR open to dining area & kitchen. LR area where tv/audio are = about 20 x 15. don't know height for sure but I think typical/standard 8' ceiling I've been goofing off at work, reading, searching and like this kit from PE: the Dayton Audio 15" Ultimax + cabinet bundle PE product link but I don't yet understand all the details of the specs etc. would some of you more experienced sub & DIY guys please share your thoughts on this or other suggestions, as well as, if I go something like this (this would be a passive sub, yes?) suggestion/recommendation for amp. the comments on the PE kit page have a few suggestions but I haven't checked into them yet. many thanks! -John

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    I have for many years admired SP's voice/ability to hit those high notes that he does/used to do. liked a few songs more than average, specifically my most fave Any Way You Want It for the guitar, especially the bridge/solo. love some great guitar work, and that piece does it for me.
  21. why are these things always so far away... GLWYS. wish you were within a reasonable range of me
  22. for me - ABSOLUTELY dark. me likey the dark stuff. this stuff they call breakfast blend - wtf is that?!? that makes no sense to me. why is the breakfast blend weaker than the 'normal' blend. I do drink coffee cuz I like it, but I also drink it to get/keep me going. that weak stuff is just a waste of time, effort, etc.
  23. ^^^ it must be nice. but I must admit that on the weekends I do sometimes sleep in until 9. I don't think I do that very often, but I did last weekend. I had to work during a midnight maintenance window Thurs nite, didn't get home until 3 am Fri, so that threw things off schedule.
  24. are you sure about that? seems at least a little bit ironic...
  25. well - not saying this would happen. but in some instances, it might. if you had suffered immobilizing injuries - ex: broken leg, some head injuries, etc. - one could lie on the floor, the ground, etc. and still hear. but critically listen? yeah, maybe not.
