  • For $300 I would save a bit and go to one of these or get a 505. The 505 is a great sub for under $200.

  • Polk sub are good value subs if you're spending less than $250 on it. More than that it's HSU or SVS. if you can find them in Canada. What kind of deal are you getting on the HTS subs up there?

  • Polk never had decent respect. Back in the day everyone wanted Cerwin Vega.. BIG LOUD blasting things. I even had a pair. I knew a few people who had Polk speakers, mostly musicians. I did get a set of bookies in HS because stairway sounded soo g…
  • Welcome to the Club, What Tony said. You will need an amp with either a good AVR that has pre-outs or a preamp. It's all about how much you want to spend and how big of a system do you want.
  • SVS or HSU Can't go wrong with either one

  • Then here is a Pic Thor was nice last night, I didn't know how much detail I was missing with the TSX250C.

  • What a shame they let it get ripped apart like that. Still a nice cabinet. Some work you can make it into a great TV stand.
  • Save your money and look for a better sub. Those will be a disappointment.
  • Nice speakers just 100 miles up the 5 from me. Those would be to big for the homeless shelter after the wife kicked me out. For me Sony ES SS-M9 would be my end game. I couldn't afford them new when I worked for Sony and I still can't afford t…
  • I like my little Emotiva amp. Only other amps I've spent time with are friend had an XPA5 which was nice, tried to sell it to me but I didn't have the coin. Now he has an A51 that sounds good even on the "K" horn speakers he has it hooked too. I…
  • Frist get a good AV Receiver like the Yamaha 2070 or 3070. maybe look for a deal on the 1060/2060/3060. Marantz are also nice AVR the 6011 would do you nice. Once you have the AVR setup, save some coin for a good amp. B & K Parasound or ev…
  • Unreal for sure. To let a cabinet like that be scrapped out is shameful at best. yes make the best you can with it. Bummer some of those consoles really sounded good. .
  • It's all about the $$$ when it comes to AV gear. Yes you can find good used equipment at times. If you got the money Parasound is one way to go. Every time I hear a system setup with one of their amps it's a joy. I you don't have the coin the Emo…

  • Could alway find a way to mount one of these to pull air over it These are great if you can fit it
  • What I find odd is Monoprice subs are priced the same a SVS and HSU. There is no stand out deal with them. For the same cost it's a coin toss between HSU and SVS for me. Going with a sub from a proven manufacture is the way to go. As for F1nut ad…
  • HSU makes a very nice sub as does SVS. For my VTF3 HSU cut me break on the shipping due to it being my 3rd sub from them. The SVS PB2000 would be a good choice also Either way yo…
  • That is a big no, no to bi-amp bi-wire speakers. Get some nice Fuez 10awg from Doug order extra to replace the brass jumpers with.
  • Very nice score, looks like real wood too
  • Oh no, another Monoprice debate. For me and my opinion only on Monoprice. I would rather get a brand that is more well proven. Entry level speaker cable is decent as with the rest of their cables. Stay AWAY from their HDMI cables. I consider them…
  • Oh thank goodness you didn't lay the S60 on it's side. Nice setup there. For you sub please also look at HSU.Two VTF3-MK5 will rock you world. I have one and it's great. I've listened to some setups…
  • I have the S60, they do very good in the low end. Last year when we had my son grad party I was demoing them to a friend, turned the sub off. I left the sub off the rest of the night with the kids hip hop playing. Low end is impressive for a modern…
  • you should be able to use both the RCA out and speaker out on the AVR. I've never tried it.
