6 layers of wax and polish? not on the terminals right? either way you have (mho) way to much spare time my friend...




so here is my other receiver on my desk $20 Kenwood KR-V106R love this thing SOOOOOOO many buttons..

drives my $11.25 (lol) Monitor Audio Silver S1s




I also switched to my WASD V1 keyboard ...I did comfirm the braided cable for my Rosewill is indeed in it's box putting it away.


i have been trying to train this guy (mah Cat Fitz) to sit in just the right spot to be a bass trap...so far no dice...

he makes listening to music better cause he sits with me frequuently while I do...



(in that pic you can see my $40 JBL L1's $50 Klipsch KG2.5's and $60~ B&O RL 60.2 speakers also.

Pioneer cs-j525 3-way Floor Standing Speakers.14.00 Dollars FOR THE PAIR.
What the hell?


One tweeter was blown though, so I replaced it, not the same thing but It works temporarily.

That's correct. I use Meguiar's Mirror Glaze High Tech Yellow (Brazilian) #26 Wax.

M2616_HiTechYellowWax.jpg

I use this to wax my plasma TV's and cable plugs... and my car.

I'm busy now so don't have time to wax like that as I'm busy listening to music as soon as I get home from work. Music listen straight 5 hours before it's time for bed.
Not enough time man.... really sad. Weekend isn't enough either. I need vacations.

It wasn't too long ago that I picked up 5 JBL Studio 1 Series speakers for a surround sound setup (Klipsch sub was bought seperately). I managed to snag the JBL 190 towers for $225 a peice on amazon! They're bi-amped to an Onkyo 609 and the 5.1 is completed with a Klipsch sw112 sub. Just wish I had a larger room to really make use of these!

A larger room would be nice. The wall isn't good for imaging and will cause reflections, but you probably already know that.

I had listened to them at Frys, but they're idiots and they didn't have bridges on the posts for full range. So there was no bass on one. The other speaker was wired to the low pass filter so it was just bass. It's not the first time that has happened either. rolleyes.gif

I have my bridges taken off my Klipsch Reference speakers. I run speaker wire separately to my amp

On the same channel? Any reason for doing this besides decreasing wire resistance?

The bridges were removed and only one pair of wires to one of the filters.

I took off the bridges of mine and used 12 awg wire for jumpers. Everybody said that the stock wire jumpers had poor contact and just of poor quality.

Bi-wiring doesn't really have any effects, at least not for short runs.

Ya, the bridges aren't supposed to be as good as wire. There's a lot of debate on whether just replacing them with a short clip of wire is better than actually bi-wiring them. I had the wire so I have mine bi-wired. I'd really like to talk my wife into letting me replace my set for the new ones.

This is what I'd like to have: http://www.klipsch.com/rf-7-ii-home-theater-system

I have the original Reference series from about 12 years ago. http://www.klipsch.com/rf-7-floorstanding-speaker/details#description
