Anyone that has been following, will know that I am working on tweaking and aligning my new system consisting of Dual drive ULS15 and my Paradigm Studio setup. I do plan on a full review and accounting later but here is something I found amusing.
My first day playing with the news subs was Saturday, the HSU has such a clean and powerful sound and when paired with the Paradigm, gives a result that is hard for me to describe but I will try a few words; Pure, Dynamic, enveloping, absorbing .. get the picture?
Anyway, I was mucking about for about 4 hours playing various music and crawling around in the basement looking for the sweet spots for the subwoofers. The Wife calls me, " the tv isn't working". So that doesn't make a lot of sense to me as the Internet and the phone are still working and both are supplied by the same cable so something else must be wrong, call the cable guy. All good, appointment made for Monday morning.
After the entire weekend of shifting and recalibrating in the theater, on Sunday evening, I call my daughter down to show here where the cable hookups are in the service area of the basement. I needed her to be able to aid the repair guy as I would be at work on Monday and it would be a sin to withhold discovery channel from the wife for a 3rd day!
WELL LOW AND BEHOLD... I am looking at the Amplifier for the tv signal and the light is out. I follow the cord to the 110 supply and it was unplugged!! I pushed the plug back into the wall the TV's all started working!!
Short version, These subs are so powerful that the plug came out of the receptacle in a cement wall. This plug has been there for years! The environment has always been subject to my home theater, and it was no slouch.
This is just "Better"
