My bad. I didn't realise these had foam surrounds, I thought they were pleated paper. In that case replace both surrounds (you should not need to change cones) to bring them back. Old foam surrounds,...

It's a new PSU so I assume it's OK - it was plugged in. In UEFI I have it set to Primary Graphics Adaptor - PCIe (it's in the correct slot too) set as per the pic. I'm sure it's the way I did it last...

Does anyone know the max settings for madVR in the iGPU4600 in my 4770?
It appears I may have another stuffed mobo (Z87 Extreme 4) as installing either of my 7790's gets me no video, either from the...

I can see where you're coming from, and it may be more cost effective doing a pair, but my experience with a ton of JBL drivers is that if it's not damaged, it won't make a difference. I've got very...

For the small amount of playing with mine so far, I agree. I first heard about them somewhere in your ported rebuild thread, enquired to the local distributor and bought one then. I'm completely...

Ignore him. They haven't been made in years so there will be no spares. Both places I suggested as well as many other authorised JBL dealers will be able to install a recone kit, if necessary. If the...

Not a bad attempt, and whilst I agree with the general tone of your piece, there are some comments I'd like to add.

Bookshelf speakers are only inherently undesirable if you actually put them on...

And/or get someCrowsons for the ULF.

For late night headphone listening, I'm thinking about only turning on my side subs, moving them next to my chair (each has a driver at floor and 1.3m high)...

Buy a UXL and build a Marty (or whatever). Then use the TC3000 in newer enclosures and have 3 subs. Don't need to do it all at once if budget restricts.


You don't need many, mainly clamps. Go to...

It's the inductance of the coil.

Can't calculate it, it's a measured parameter. Email IST and see if they'll give you a number for it.

That about sums it up.

I still have several great TTs and lots of vinyl I bought new as far back as the 70's, but none of it sounds as good as the equivalent CD (loudness wars stuff excluded). The...

It doesn't matter the principle is the same. It's about control of airflow to maximise cooling. Mine is rear to front. However I've installed several tons of gear into racks that draw in cooling air...

From your description, it's hard to know if it will make an appreciable difference.

Pyle seems to run between OK and sucks, so if you did decide to do a fan wall like that, I'd get some Scythe,...

What's with all the tuner malarkey? You can buy a great second hand tuner off ebay for very little if you find an amp in your price range that has the features you want.
