Hehe, I will work on one of those ones Nathan had a Rilla's, you know with the protections circuit on it? Yea, that
Agreed for RMK. And just to pop in once again as the devil's advocate, the 215 and 210's will once again have excellent extensions, and for the big boys, down to 18hz will be great...BUT, if you are still looking for these to absolutely SLAM you in the chest, you will STILL need eq to boost those frequencies. Unless Jeff goes way outside his norm, there will be no artificial bump in the midbass region, and typically in order to get that type of response, you either need to be eqing, or running something like dynamic eQ on compatible receivers. Tone trims on others. Bottom line, you aim for a target flat curve, you shouldn't hear a lick of difference between the 215's full range, and the 212's with some caps or OS's. You want to get that midbass slam back in the game, it will take work to do it just as it always has
HEY KILLERZ!! Looks great dude. What am I looking at though on top of your Noesis? mailbox on the left, cleaning supplies on the right? Also, are those manifolds for an IB on either side of your equipment rack or intakes for your HVAC or something?
