  • If it is intermittent as the O.P. says, and playing the same section over immediatly gets different results, with no other changes made, that would lean to something intermittently changing, maybe loose connections somewhere or an intermittent drive…

  • 9 Bucks a month, Well worth it. Who truly expects First run movies, that cost like $5.00-$8.00 each on other services to be had for 9 bucks a month on Netflix? No company could survive doing that, let alone be able to buy the rights to the movi…
  • "popping" meaning over excursion I would assume? Geez guys any speaker fed loud enough deep bass will "pop"

  • not much to see, does the wire move if you pull on it?
  • look on room on other side of wall from where the wall speakers are. Near the baseboard, look for if the drywall was patched etc.
  • To the OP, have you thought about Replacing Caps in tweeter circuit, or was that mentioned? One of our vintage Pairs, when purchased sounded almost as if one tweeter was bad, but after replacing the cap, turned out it was just the cap had gone as…
  • Lost all desire. No hatred, but simply do not care anymore...
  • Need more details. How often do you get paid, it is same amount every pay or per job or commission or salary or hourly? Over what amount of time did these mistakes take place?
  • The mod, involves changing the side mounted woofer (8") that has a decent bit less upper bass boominess. It is a great change "IF" this particular issue bothers you. It can be also helped by doing what you do, crossing a sub fairly high, and adju…
  • These are truly awesome speakers!!
  • I would use lower priced caps, and like westmassguy said, apply some sound absorbtion on the back and sides. But saying that, pretty sure this was meant to be a relatively loud, and more towards boomy bass at the expense of deep bass. With ports t…
  • Cool, thinking about going to see it soon with some friends!

  • We got ours for around $1,000, and they were in very good shape, not perfect, but not all messed up or anything.
  • I can not for the life of me remember which one it was, but I am certain one of our vintage Polks actually had a few different drivers used, that did not coincide with what was supposed to be in them, and we got them from the original owner, (inher…

  • ^^^ Either way, looks quite tedious!!
  • Curious, why not remove the dust cap, so the alignment can be visually seen or shims placed around the voice coil to get a more precise alignment?

  • I guess maybe being a bit younger than the average forum member here, I do not see there being a type of music that is strictly "Rock", but I see many decades of "Rock type" music, that has drastically changed and merged into other genres and sounds…

  • I just liked the "Raw", sound and style of how he played it. I think the playing style was intentional, not too polished or smooth.
