If the 1500 gets down to $250 shipped on Amazon, I may wind up with a fully outboard-powered HT rig. At that price it would be too good to pass up. The 1500 puts out 300w RMS @ 8 ohms. Perfect for...

Great minds think alike. :D The original XLS amps are dead-quiet even when the fan kicks on, which isn't very often when using them to power cabs say from 80Hz-ish and up...like 7 main speakers in a...

Just thought I'd add that I have a lot of respect for the Dayton Reference series of drivers. I've heard a few different bookshelf and MTM type cabs built with them and they were awesome.

It's interesting that data-bass would measure the xmax very differently than the manufacturer. Almost double, in fact. That makes a huge difference in output, obviously. I'll have to take another...

18" Ultimax is out of stock until June...I just looked. I modeled the 18" HO reference in ported boxes from 9 to 20 CF. I wasn't very impressed, TBH. Cone excursion is exceeded by quite a few mm...

I guess it's personal preference, how you sit/slouch/etc. I'm only an inch taller than you, so we're the same height, essentially. I've never bought HT recliners before, but I know that I don't like...

Very nice amp. Not one that many of us can afford though. It's also a 2U unit, though obviously you've got four very powerful channels in that 4U of space. The 10000 does have fans, which I'm sure...

Good BluRay player for under $250?

The flip toggles are damn near bullet proof. You would literally rip out a huge piece of sheetrock before those bolts failed. I will be using them to mount my Volt10's with these brackets.
