New member, newly purchased Talon Hawk center, 2 pairs of Talon Raven for mains and surrounds, and Talon Thunderbird subwoofer. Haven't hooked everything up yet, but will get it done as soon as I track down some decent speaker cables. Suggestions?

^^^Congrats on your new system =^) Check out monoprice. Go with 12awg so no matter what length you run the cables, you should be good to go. And if you are going to be installing in wall, get CL2 rated wire.

Turn it up!

Just got these babies...and they are "hefty" babies coming in at 16.5lbs. But they mate perfectly with my ESL fronts (left, right) and EM-C2 center channel (hidden in top-center cabinet of the BDIUSA furniture).

P.S. - Does anyone know how to get pictures to show inline in the post as opposed to attachments?

You need to host them elsewhere (upload them to another forum or photo-hosting site). Afterward, click on one of the pictures, and it may provide you with IMG tags. If so, just copy paste them here, which will look like:

{IMG}http://www.abc.com/photo.jpg{/IMG} except you use sqaure brackets [] instead of curly ones {}.

If you don't have the img tags, simply right click on any image and select "copy image location". Then in your reply box of this forum, select the icon above that looks like an upside down envelope(insert image). When the pop up box appears, paste the the image location there, and hit ok.

Just ordered my replacement system about a week ago...not getting here til the 18th but thats ok since thats when i'm moving into my new house. So I ordered definitive technology 8040's the whole way around. I did a lot of researching and listening and I feel like this will make an incredible setup. Im pushing it all with my old Denon 1611 from a couple years back. I will upgrade that soon but for now im excited to get it all setup.

I demoed the 8040's and 8060's and they jammed! No need for a sub with those babies.

Oooh I see a ML "Grotto" sub-woofer?? NICE. And I see you have the higher end center channel "Stage". Another ML fan...cool. I had the Dynamo 700 but went with another brand...just for the sub though. I'm sure your system sounds very sweet!

I know its mother days weekend but I started eariler in the week and I had to finish. Yeah...she is not thrilled... but...oh well. The worked involved required me to repair the walls from my inwalls, raise my display to accommodate the huge Sierra centre channel and I bought another credenza which I had to assemble...but this NOW will be IT for some time to come....

My home theatre speakers are Designed by Rick Craig of Selah Audio.
The fronts are arrays of Hi-Vi 3" with fountek ribbons.
The subs are also by Selah, I have 2 duals but only one pictured.





The surrounds are arrays of 4" Hi-Vi with Dayton ribbons.
The center is Seas drivers with Morel mid and fountek ribbon.



Thanks for looking

damn
nice looking speakers
they must cost more than my house

Nice setup. The Sierras were on my list at one time, I wanna say in the top 5. How do you like the Funky Waves sub? I have been checking them out and would love to hear one, hopefully at a Northeast GTG if it ever happens. Never really hear much about them, but they look to be a top notch sub and not to mention The 18.3 looks like a beast. Enjoy.

Thanks....

I had the Sierra 1 NrT's for about 6 months....so, my decision to move up to the Towers was easy....the real suprise for me though was the...STC(Horizon). It sounds incredible...the dialogue is always crystal clear without any issues whatsoever regarding intelligibility or voices... sounds disperse well beyond the sweet spot. This was often a pet peeve of mine and drove me nuts with my prior CC... because I wasn't always sitting in that seat.

As for the sub...I owned a Svs Nsd and wanted more.... ID sub options within Canada are limited & expensive...that... I sought out some alternatives and decided to go with Nathan. It's only a 12" but AE make some terrific drivers and the av12x is no exception...Nathan did an amazing job in building it. I've compared alongside the pb13u and VFT15 and it held its own....IMO...tonally it is very tight and accurate it excells with mid to upper bass like that from a kick drum...I preferred it ever so slightly over the others...of course, with a little bias.....

If I ever plan on getting a larger sub...Funk Audio would be # 1 on that list....

Cheers, Bill...

I have very old model speakers Magnat from 1985.This is great sounding box but I would like to know what does sensitivity of 2.1 Watts means? In those days sensitivity was not given in db/1m so does anybody knows how many db/1m do this 2,1 Watts mean?

I'd say the sensitivity is approx 88-90dB@1w@1m. Those are seriously well designed, and when introduced, a tremendous loudspeaker.


Those were high quality loudspeakers due to the drivers. Magnat, OEM'ed drive units for other mfrs, and if I recall correctly, they were in one of my favorite, all time speakers; the Dahlquist DQM-9, which married JBL type output, with finesse and imaging, all wrapped in a double wall construction with diffraction control. Way ahead of it's time.

Enjoy the Magnats, I hope they serve you well.



Good luck

Thanks....I bought them 1985 and never got a wish to change them...I only changed bipolar capacitors with new Mundorfs and they do wonders with tube amps...even some transmissionline line owners say that Sigma1000 is almost so tight and deep in bass as transmissionline box but 2,3 times cheaper...so I am more then happy
