    Ok so I'm way late on the RTA 11 pics, but y'all know what they look like.

    Anywho, just brought home a steal of a deal CS-350... Why didn't I find one earlier!?! This thing is awesome!

    If this is just a taste of what the SRT center can do... I need one... Yesterday! :D
    But they're hen's teeth so it's either be patient, or make my own...

    Congrats on you purchase of one of the best centers out there! :p

    NOW...you should pull each woofer out and check the spiders for glue not holding anymore. Maybe half a spider might be loose. You don't want to burn a voice coil out on those rare woofers. SERIOUSLY. ;)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Will do, thanks for the heads up.

    FML!!!!!!!!

    Not even 24 hrs after I bring the CS-350 home, one of the cats decides it's a jungle gym and flips it off it's temp place on my TV sub..... On to it's face... :s :'( 5 of 6 of the grill pins are snapped off in the front bezel. The vinyl on the face has 2 gashes in it. Fortunately none of the driver seized.


    So, now I need to repair it AND kill a cat. The hardest part is to decide which to do first.

    I have 6, but sure only one of 3 did it, the other 3 aren't interested in jumping up on the stuff in that area. So I'm at an impass on the feline eradication issue...


    Anyone have experience repairing the grill pins? Should I just go magnetic mount? Velcro? Other ideas?

    I haven't done it yet, but I have an RT35i grille with a couple of broken pins. I have the pins, both have a clean break. My plan was to drill a small hole 1/16" diameter in both the broken pin and frame, and use the same diameter music wire inserted in both pin and frame. I planned to epoxy everything back in place.

    ^ I was thinking the same, only smaller drill shanks.
  • verbverb Posts: 4,099
    That would work. The key is to get the music wire in there to reinforce it, otherwise it'll probably snap off again. Dang cats! :smile:

    That wasn't my adjective for them... >:)
    In fact, I believe it was a few adverbs :*

    Fired it up, one side of the MWs weren't active, but I lucked out and only one of the fastons came loose.

    That's what I used to do on quite a few. I think I used an 1/8" dia. drill bit. It's been a while since my round-up and complete renewal of all broken grillpegs.

    I forget what type of pin material I used. It's been that long ago. I do know it wasn't music wire. But what I did use, WORKED beautifully. I mostly had a lot of JBL pegs to fix. Some Polks too. I think they were easily broken by idiots without patience. :#

    Auto correct says it's right so who am I to argue. Would you like me to fix it so your OCD stays manageable?
    I have 787 seconds so make it quick like

    I just think it's funny that you try to make it look like my reading comprehension is poor and then have to rely on auto-correct to tell you whether your punctuation and grammar is correct or not. :p

    I'm sorry I hurt your widdle feewings. :'(
  • pitdogg2pitdogg2 Posts: 11,587
    Trust me Jim you hurt nothing. I could care less. 99.9% of the time autocorrect is turned off, unless my phone has a software update. That happened last night and i promptly turned it off when i noticed the change.

    So cat is it is wtf cares

    I haven't bought any speakers in over a month. I think that I might have shot my wad. I guess the only thing I have to do now is sell most, if not all my stash, for cheap. ;)
