  1. Thanks for the insight Geoff. Then thats what i will get. Searching for pricing right now.
  2. I am looking to pick up a pair of woofers and looking at K33 with square magnet and or Crites 1526. Not sure of the difference in the 1526 and the 1526C with the cast basket. Do they sound the same?
  3. This may have been talked about here already, but i don't see it. Which woofer is best suited for a cornwall/cornscala? North Reading Engineering
  4. Yes and it seems everything is getting so out of reach as time goes. I still have the used Heresy's ( 82"s) i bought in 1985. They are now my Super Heresy's. I love them.
  5. $3000 in 1977 was alot of money. I know my dad bought a brand new 1975 Monte Carlo for about $5000.
  6. In 1985 i bought a brand new pair of Heresy for $900 out the door and a new used pair for $500 out the door. I like the old prices better.
  7. Yes, i agree. I was interested in the Tool Shed amps awhile back from all the good said about them, but when i read the specs and seen the price tag i was a bit taken back. This led me to purchasing the 12w/ch chinese amp which sounds great til you turn up the volume. The highs and mids get louder, but the bass falls quickly behind. I have a pair of CornScala's and another 25w/ch Chinese amp that does very well in this combo with JJ KT77's making this a great combo. I'm sure the TS amps are great little amps, but for me the watt to cost is too much for me. I'm looking for something more powerful while retaining good clean output. Primeluna and Ayon are way more powerful quality amps and just a few dollars more. If i'm spending $5000 on a tube amp, i'm expecting a clean thumpin badass of an amp.
  8. They are cool looking amps for sure, but what is the max wattage with these, 12w? I think for that price i would rather buy an Ayon spirit V with 75w/ch for a little more cash, but a lot more bass. I haven't listened to either, so i have to ask, do the Toolshed amps reproduce nice hefty bass. I have a 12w/ch Chinese amp and it sounds nice at low volume, but not much bass when you turn it up.
  9. I like what i read about the RSL 10s subs. Looks like i would definitely need 2. I like the Klipsch 115sw and i think i can get away using 1 of those. Still looking.
  10. Not really. Figured one would be enough for what i'm doing. The Klipsch 115 looks like a good pick, but i will check out the others listed this weekend. Thanks for the offer.
  11. Ok, ill check out the HSU as well as the others mentioned this weekend when i have more time. Thanks
  12. Thanks for the heads up on the subs. I will continue shopping.
  13. Nice work Dean. I will keep you in mind for future projects.
  14. ok, thanks for the input. Are the SVS subs any good?
  15. Nice, so how does it sound? Didn't know Dean was still building networks.
  16. I think the bass is cleaner on the JBL.
  17. Klipsch offers so many options in subwoofer. Anyone here have a Klipsch sub or reviewed any in person? I read some bad reviews on them. Seems some are ok and some suck. Not sure what size i need, but i have a 15x21 theater/listening room. I need the sub for theater only. Currently looking at the Synergy Black Label line. Any feed back on any Klipsch subs welcomed. Thanks
  18. To my ear the JBL sounds cleaner, but at over twice the price of the Klipsch they should sound better.
  19. In 1985 i bought a new pair of 85 Heresy's and a used pair of 84 Heresy's and using them for HT i had an Onkyo 50w/ch AVR and a Hitachi HIFI VCR. While watching Pink Floyd The Wall it would really shake everything in the living room while watching at spirited levels. There was no need for a sub in that HT system. I was pleasantly surprised as with music they didn't seem to have much low bass. I still have the 84's which are now Super Heresy and couldn't be happier with 2 channel stereo.
  20. I have decided on the Panasonic player as what i want. UB820, but i see there is also a UB450 or 420. I will only be using this player for movies in a theater room using a AVR 7.1, so the audio needs to be top notch as well. Think i'll start a new thread on this. Thanks guys
  21. Both my tv and the AVR use ARC. I guess either way would work fine.
  22. Anyone here have a data sheet for the new K33E woofer 121501? Thanks
  23. I haven't ordered new woofers yet as i'm still playing with adjustments and really need the room closed off to get a good listen in the upper db range. I did change the attenuation 1db(from 7db to 8db) and it seems a move in the right direction, it's hard to tell with only 1bd adjustment. I also tried some different preamp tubes i had laying around. The Electro Harmonics 12AX7 GOLD. These little babies made i nice improvement in the sound stage opening it up a bunch and brought out strings and cymbals a bit more. Over all, it's sound pretty badass, but i'm still looking for a bit more bass. I might make another adjustment on the mid attenuation and set it a 9db. This should bring out a bit more bass. With the B&C 85TN mid driver spec at 107db and the Kappalite 3015LF at 96, that would give a 2db spread between woofer and mid.
