  1. Hey everyone, I hooked the speakers up and they sound great. After talking on here, I started to get curious about that old marantz in the basement and thought I would hook it up. But on the outside it has a red sticker that says "CAUTION" "This unit has been modified for 220 V.A.C operation". So I haven't plugged it into the wall yet. I'm not too familiar with electrical terms but it seems that I shouldn't plug this into a regular 120 outlet.... Am I correct in this?
  2. The grills are recessed and held in place with what appears to be velcro???
  3. Sorry for the delay, the Marantz is a model 1200.... Knowing who I got it from it probably doesn't even work and it's missing its (I assume) wooden housing.
  4. I'm not offended. I don't know a thing about this stuff. LOL
  5. They already tilt back due to the bases on them. I heard them play at my buddy's house and they sounded wonderful for the music he was playing(he is an opera singer-so it was right up that alley), I'm hoping that translates into oldies and some early rock and roll. Again thanks for all the suggestions and advice.
  6. I can't get the speakers any closer together, between the TV and the shelves (which hold the stereo and DVD) that's as close as it's going to get.
  7. I have a 10X12(I think) rug in front them. It obviously doesn't cover the whole floor. Should I consider elevating these on some type of stand? Makes sense that I might want the tweeter at ear level when sitting on the couch?
  8. Also can someone explain about "tubes?" I'm googling and reading and some people say these sound best using "tubes". I assume that means a tube amp? Sorry but have never delved into this world before...
  9. I have some Monster cable my friend threw in with the speakers, I assume it is adequate. I've never seen a speaker connection that has two possible ways to connect the wire before. I've never seen the inside of a speaker (before looking on here), so I wasn't sure if there was some specific type of speaker connection that had to be used.
  10. Room size is 25x30(used to be a garage), concrete block walls covered by 2x4 studs with sheetrock, full of furniture but the main couch is sitting about 8' directly across from the TV. The speakers are on the outside of a big TV hutch, speakers are roughly 12 feet apart from each other. The right side speaker is closest to the receiver, probably 1', while the left speaker is 11' or so away from the receiver. BTW, I have something called a Marantz down in the basement. It appears old: I think it's another receiver but it might be an amp, it's just missing it's outer wooden(I assume) shell, I wonder if that would work? I'm always looking for cheap so budget is low but I'm uncertain how that translates in audiophile world. Anyways Thanks for the help!
  11. No other speakers. Just a 1980's fisher studio standard receiver. LOL I feel silly posting on here since I don't have serious equipment but I didn't know what these were or how to connect them.
