Synergistic Orange and purple fuses popping
Well being able to use it is a good start.. :-) I have to roll a C2500 in and a C45 out of my system. I'm so lazy! :-) BUT I just got it fixed. Wife is driving me nuts as usual. She will listen for 2 days and come out with a list.. LOL Good ears. ...

I've had 5 different Cary tube products they all used the 560uf filter caps in the power supply. Mine all did the same thing they were all older units too. They would start running hotter and I had to be very careful flipping from standby to on. T... 
Remote Volume Control for a Sub Woofer
OP I still have a loudness contour, bass, treble and balance. I wouldn't give it up for anyone.  Second the actual problem is the sensitivity of your main speakers vs your subs. 10 to 1 says your mains or subs are a mismatch. Kind of like conven... 
How do I set the crossover for 2 channel listening on my HT system?
Your head unit is sending a low level signal @ what ever you set it at and normally that roll off is the same as the roll on of the next crossover point. No different than any crossover. IF they lap at the same frequency and have a vey gradual slo...

I have a question. If you know which parts to buy, how did you come up with that? That might be a better direction to go. You bought the parts. There is more than one way to go. Which valves are you going to use? I see all kinds of options, I'm no...

What about feedin' the chickens? The rooster is the only light bulb according to him. HE tells the sun to come up. Not the sun tellin' the roster to crow.. Same roster 5 billion years or what ever we're are up to now.. It wasn't the chicken or th...
