    That kind of looks like a museum for Polk.

    That’s right Trey, now is part of the setup naturally.

    Also adjusted crossover on the P6 to 50hz and the results are much more fluid and balanced.

    Maybe the new back-room stereo equipment platform for the electronics that I'll use back there. I wrote a big write-up about my experiences with getting a 27" tube Tv out front with the help of my wife and step-daughter. 3 on a TV... :D. It was then given away to a Craig's list caller who called an hour after I listed it for free. :)

    I hooked up an old Onkyo receiver, Sony DVD player and tested 2 old sets of speakers. I had a blast! I didn't get a before or even an after pic. with the stereo in place tonight. Just an in between pic. :D .

    I'll post some pics in the "post a picture" thread probably tomorrow. Those JBL's are something to behold. The silver coned model.
    Here's the start of something great back there!

    I tested those JBL STUDIO series S412 PII's on the left in the picture along with a set of NHT 2.5i's tonight. WOW is what I was thinking. :D They sounded GREAT!
    It's been way too long! :'( How time flies when you're laid up with some other more pressing needs.

    I have a few more sets out there to hook-up and see if they still play ok. ;)

    You guys have some really nice stuff.
    @nooshinjohn You make your own amps? That would be a very cool endeavor. I just spent an hour going through this thread, much more fun than that football thread. 🙄

    How do you keep that black lacquer clean and shiny? Instructions say not to use waxes, or cleaners. Totally not related to the thread, I know. Sorry

    Dust multiple times weekly. Hardly ever clean with cloth.

    Here are some shots of my secondary system I set up in our finished basement. The room is approximately 25’x16’. The gear consists of; Graham Chartwell LS3/5’s,a pair of Monarchy Audio sm70mkII’s,Promitheus TVC passive preamp,Beresford Bushmaster MK II DAC,Bluesound Node 2,and a pair of Rockville subs I picked up on Epay for $66 a piece! This is a stream only system,that I feel sounds pretty good.

    Tell us more about those Rockville subs ($66 wow). And what is that in the middle near the floor....an air cleaner?

  • The thing in the center is an electric fireplace to warm things up in the winter.
    The Rockville subs are 8”,the were open box specials! Normally the seller has them new for $99,and free shipping. Definitely not on the same planet as REL,but they work.

    Not sure, but I think that you will have to put the video on YouTube and then post the link here???

    Seems like a great value. I checked out the specs and they say 20Hz - 200Hz with no +/- dB. https://www.rockvilleaudio.com/rock-shaker-8-black/

  • They are cheap. Other than price,I got them because they have high pass connections with real binding posts,and phase control.

  • Dang, under $100 each! Forget those premium soundbars. Next time someone asks me about one of those I'm going to tell them to get some Elacs, an Onkyo receiver and dual subs. $650 all in and all new.
    Won't be the epitome of hifi, but I'm sure that would blow the average soundbar shopper away.

    If I see a couple more @ $66 I’m going to snag them for the rear of HT in the basement. I have a pair of Def Tech supercube 2000’s in the front. 4 subs is definitely the way to go for nice smooth even bass.

    My amps were a two year long labor of love...

    Going back and reading these threads nearly ten years later. What a blast that was building them.

    Heckuva lot of love, you must be passionate.
    Very sexy- uhh, the amp.
    I’d give it a whirl sometime, I’m pretty handy with tools and inventiveness.
    Did you have a schematic you copied, or just pull the idea out of your head?
