Here's mine (videos are attached at the bottom):

Obviously in those last pictures of my rears, you can see my computer speakers too. Those are Dayton B652 bookshelfs, and I love those to death. wubsmiley.gif

The Pioneer side speakers I just bought yesterday for $50 (not sure if tweeter was blown when I bought or not), and the Jensen towers I just bought today for $25. I couldn't be happier with Craigslist. wheee.gif

Video (talking to Syrillian a little, and then excursion test):

I bet your neighbors love you lol.

I must know, did you blow something in that video, toward the end you mentioned something smelled...

If I would have kept it up that loud, I would have popped the subwoofer. All is still fine. smile.gif

Youtube actually kind of killed that video. The tower woofers were moving a LOT (near bottoming out, all 4 of them), and the subwoofer was near bottoming out as well. And I think I was bottoming out on the low note at the end (after I turned it up another 3dB), which is what caused the smell.

It's set at 60Hz (high and low pass). My fronts only extend to around 50Hz successfully (rated to 40Hz, but where they're at they don't pick it up), so I figured that was a happy medium.

I've now noticed today, that when I do get a 60Hz tone in music....yeah ouch. 5x 12" woofers all doing 60Hz, all getting a good amount of excursion, yeah....

I need to set a lower crossover on the sub at the very least to compensate for the rolloff, but I lack a "proper" sub amp right now.

I probably need like 55Hz or so on the speakers (high), and like 40-45Hz on the subwoofer (low), but I lack the proper equipment for that right now.

So, do you think it's okay? I think that it is a great deal. Whether it's for someone looking to get into home theater, or someone that doesn't have a lot of money.

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
