I am late to the party but I am big time on CFB over NFL. I mean I enjoy a good NFL game and will watch as much as time permits but I love the CFB scene. Also I live in Eugene Oregon and born here as well. So I have grown up a Duck fan for life, represent! I mean we have several hundred millions dollars worth of facilities just down the road. Phil Knight's latest project, The Hatfield Dowlin complex, is very pretty. A cool side note is my wife's uncle and cousins installed the lockers. They were specially imported from Germany I think and they worked closely with the guys who thought them into being. Take a look at this link if you are any kind of sports fan. Some quick pictures of the new facility. I mean we build home theaters and Phil Knight builds things like these lol. Also some people complain that Knight just spends too much on the football program...Well he also donated hundreds of millions to OHSU in Portland on numerous occasions.

That is just insane! I have seen some other big program setups and they are all mind blowing. We just got indoor plumbing at our stadium...haha Just kidding really, but it holds no candle to that.

Thanks Michigan, we really enjoyed that couple Mil you gave us for whoppin' you first go-round...last weekend, not so much

I run a D-sonic with my 215's (1000 watts @ 4 ohms) and it's not run out of gas yet at any level. I tried mt crest, inuke, clone, rmx5050 and SQ was the same on all of them. I just don't need to run the monster amps in my room, plus I like that the D-Sonic has a 12v trigger and makes no noise lol

Hey thats a decent facility! I never played college ball as life took some other turns but I went on numerous recruiting trips to some smaller schools. I did get a letter from Rick Neuheisel while he was at Washington but not everyone can run a 4.4 lol! But guys can still get a nice education and also get the life lessons and experiences at smaller schools we never really hear of. Lots of good things that help our future out. I am a believer in the mental development that comes from team sports.

We got Michigan St. and Gameday here Saturday. TBH I am nervous. We have always recruited slightly smaller and faster and I have never liked it. Aliotti the Defensive coordinator retired after last year and long time linbacker coach Don Pellum took the spot. I always felt that Oregon will never reach the top until the linebacking core speficially, with the rest of the defense around them, were given and developed the mindset of "running downhill." We have always played some sort of "contain" defense and high rev offense. But when we hit size and a running game we can't defend we lose. I am dead set that we have to run down hill, lay a hit on the sucker, and he moves nothing but backwards! And recruit and eat and lift for size. We have done that. Numerous lineman have put on 20lbs this offseason. DE Arik Armstead, a future 1st rd pick, is now 6'8" 290! Anyway sorry for off topic but I get excited and passionate having been a diehard football player myself.

Nathan, do you mean that you haven't clipped the D-sonic or that it never makes the speakers make any bad sounds?

Yea stuff happens on Amazon sometimes. I got the scope on my Daniel Defense AR15 for 25% less than anywhere you could buy it. I think it was a glitch or accident. But if you can click "buy" it's a done deal!

And actually JTR speaker related lol...I watched Draft Day just now, great movie, but speakers just continue to impress. Could have watched this one with the Submersives taking a nap but the vocals are just dang clean son!!! And some of the surround effects with stadium scenes and the bigger crowded rooms was nice. I try and pick out all the positives you know Also it was cool seeing the aerial shots of numerous stadiums and cities that teams call home. Also I crept up to -8 to -10 on this movie with my wife out of town. I think getting rid of the plasma and the glass surface has tamed some LR 1st point reflections with my aggressive toe in. Makes me wonder if I could go higher with an AT screen and heavy treatments behind.

I have a mint Sherbourn PA7-350 with single digit hours on it if anyone here is interested. Just pm me.

Have one of both, they are some incredible machines at 17 lbs. each, but without needing 2 ohm capability, the 6000DSP will suit you just fine as well. Oh yea
If you can find one. There are some non DSP's around, but I have searched high and low for a 6000dsp. I finally ordered 2, but when I get them is unknown.

Ive had them 8dBs over reference and they still sounded great. with movies I xover them at 60hz but it would be about the same on crazy demos.
I had my crest on them for a while and just dont need that much power. I can bottom the subs out before the Dsonic gives in.

What do you guys think?

D-Sonic M2-1500-3, 3 x 1000w @ 4 ohm

http://www.d-sonic.net/products/3-channel-amplifiers/


Reason for the M2 over the M3, is I was told the M3 is only 800 Watts at 4 ohm.

LOL, Bose is what started all this. My wife wanted to really surprise me one Christmas and she bought me an Acoustimass Bose system. It came with a Pioneer AVR and a bunch of cubes and a fart box. That is what I called the sub because it sounded like a fart box. I hooked it up and it sounded horrible. I started reading about it and there was so much negative print about it. I felt terrible telling my wife I wanted to return it. I could tell she was a little sad because she wanted to surprise me, however that little fart box system turned into a home theater full of goodies and she is just as excited as me.

This is actually the post that started it all for me back in 2011. LOL

Bose Acoustimass 6 gift

Nah, no 215RM yet. I am going to use my 228 for a CC for the time being. If it works out I will order another 228 or just get the 215 RM later on. I gotta be honest, I am just tapped out from this theater build and the 215's. I am also putting together 2 ported 18" subs to go with these monsters, so that is another chunk of change. In the last month I have bought seating, a screen, carpet and a mini split AC unit, 3 amps, and not to mention the daily trips to home depot. Now the painters tomorrow. I had like 2 dollars left yesterday LOL. I look back on it and I should have just stuck with the Bose system I blame it all on you guys.

So I see it has the trigger and I know that was a requirement which is why (I assume) you didn't go with the Inukes that everyone else seems to like.

Correct.

otherwise I wouldn't be having this conversation and would have bought them already. They are inexpensive and would have been worth it to try.
