 Thank you, that’s life in the big city. Seems like something goes wrong At every road trip to pick up an addition to the room.  You’re right, it’s good bass therapy!!

Yup, no matter how much it HZ! :P

On a furniture dolly here when I was picking it up. Its mich bigger in person than I thought. Reminds me of how I first felt when I seen my Rf-7ii’s the first time.  My wife and I drove up to pick it up, I never have to worry about WAF with her bit she did think it was huge.  I was so excited my mouth was moving a mile a minute I couldn’t stop yapping.   Jeff and I were loading it into my truck and I had it at a weird angle and I heard a pop and wound up ripping a bicep tendon from my shoulder. Not exactly how I wanted the day to go, but about parr for the course for someone Murphy’s Law seems to follow. I was honestly afraid to look at it because it felt so weird. I didn’t look at it till I went to bed and seeing that my bicep was hanging down toward my elbow. Surprisingly not a lot of pain. Despite all that I definitely hooked it up that night after my one of my sons and three of his friends wrestled it inside and down to the basement.  Felt guilty not being able to help and just give direction.   it’s in a resting place right now not sure if it wind up there . Not ready to give any type of review at this point I have not been able to spend a lot of time with it. I did however, throw on a few movie scenes just to see what she could do with some basic calibration. I have three words that come immediately to mind... Holy S@#t balls!! 

Can’t wait to see what today brings,  it will be the first time I’ll be able to spend more than an hour with it .

So how long did it take you after your first listening session before you were contemplating buying another one? :rolleyes:

I’d say I made it all the way to go about 730 8 o’clock last night before I said it for the first time  out loud. :) Actually my wife said she would want one for aesthetics but it won’t be for quite a while and I doubt it will be another of the same sub but at least it will have a matching driver

@timdog5000 sorry to hear about the injury. I knew they were big but that photo of you standing next to it really illustrates the massive size of that bad boy. I will add that photo to my collection of pics to show others (mostly my wife) to confirm that there are people out there crazier than me.

You do know that TD5K is 3’6” right?

I should have known that other people besides me did that. Sometimes Ill show her something 3 times the size just to make what I really want look like a compromise :)

Didnt we have a conversation like that now that I’m thinking about it :-)  I remember all too well now.  Still wish I could’ve made the LaScalas happen.


The ones  I bought in STL recently?

John Kuthe...

 No, these were three Lascalas my buddy was going to trade some Altec Lansing VOTT for.

Must be too big of a file, Made a little video from an app that had the subwoofer saying,  “you’re right he is short”

Too funny!

The first time I watched it I had the sound off and thought the video messed up, with the sound on I just laughed, that's crazy. :lol:

 

Looks good, that should fix your bass problem. So what the wife thinks besides you lost your mind ? Bet she likes it though.

She told me we need one for the other side for aesthetics. I told her even if I got another one it might not wind up there we have to put it where it will sound best.  However, I think a 2400ulf would be sufficient to balance out FR. Surprisingly it’s not very  localized like I thought it would be.  But again have not had that much time with it.
