  • The Monitor 4’s I have on my desk have the same white PVC port and they were stuffed with the higher density black eggcrate style foam. Both of my pairs of Monitor 4's have that foam. These are the only Polk cabinets I've encountered that don't ut…

  • @audioluvr - The KG4’s are SWEET! I bought them to refurbish and flip, but I’m having a tough time wanting to let them go. Refinished the cabinets sanding and Watco Danish oil. Did the Crites TI domes, and his Soniccap kit on a pair of matching c…
  • We love ours! The wiretaps Echo Dots are also uncomfortably useful.
  • I forgot I had this photo. This little one was building the webs...
  • I fixed up the cabinets and veneered them. Think they turned out ok... one PRis leaky. Glued it with shoe goo. Anybody got any spares? 😂
  • So I’ve finally got these to a point where they’re somewhat decent to look at. And they work for the most part. I went through all eight of the MW6509's, six of which were locked up. I aligned and glued all of them. When I finally reassembled I …
  • I just bought a pair of 198's and the CS agent I spoke to said they should have stock of 194's by the end of the month. Said it shouldn’t be like last year when they were delayed til summer.

  • I just acquired a pair of 3.1's - I can measure and sketch for you. I believe they're made of 1/2" MDF vs the 3/4" that the bigger SDA grilles are made of. I was actually surprised by how light they were in comparison. I'll see if I can get somet…
  • tested them out last night and both SL3000's are blown. measure open across the terminals. no continuity.... threw in some 2000's to test and the crossovers are working, so i guess a pair of 198's are in my future...

  • @rooftop59 - just wired them in parallel. Ran both HF outputs to the one tweeter. It seemed to sound better that way. It’s probably a total 4-6 ohm load now. I had thought about building a new crossover but I was lazy. It seemed to work out fine…
  • I did something similar to a pair of Krix bookshelf speakers and built a center channel out of them for a friend. Turned out decent! I think the Elac might be done for good though...
  • @mhardy6647 - yes combining or mixing two line level signals using a y cable is never a good idea lol. I don’t ever run the amp in the 8150 and the 555 concurrently, so I figured I was safe. It works well and gives me options! 👍🏻
  • Not to thread-jack, but I am using the pre-outs from my Kenwood KA-8150 y'd out to my GFA555->SRS2’s and feeding the power amp section of the 8150 so I can use it to drive my KG4’s or RTA12c's (mood dependent I turn off 555/SDA's and turn on eith…
  • I contacted the seller, apparently they had so much interest in 12 hours that they decided pull the ad and try to relist at a higher price. I will keep an eye out but they will probably ask $800 haha. Oh well. What would top dollar be in everyone’…

  • I’m local and I keep getting tempted... Must. Resist.
  • Great deal. I just picked one up locally and am very impressed. GLWS!! 🤘🏻🤘🏻

  • I really love my 20 year old DM604’s (one mid, two woofers). Those are much prettier than mine though!

  • I own a 1430. It is a very nice sounding amp. Good well of power, drove my SDA SRS2's and my RTA12c's admirably. But then I picked up the GFA555 and things changed, for the better...

  • Finished up and delivered today. Sounds pretty decent. Looks pretty good. Buddy is happy. Fun project! Attached top and bottom caps using hangar bolts just like on the SRS2's. Built from 3/4” MDF, veneered with rift cut oak (which I really d…
  • Just did some testing tonight. I temped up one tweeter fed from both crossovers and the overall intelligibility increased, good for a center channel. 👍🏻 It sounds half decent Just need to clean it up, finish the cloth covered side panels, buil…
