Well, this AV stuff is really taking over my life. I wake up thinking about it
To that end, I picked up another sub for cheap ($30) from a friend that buys all sorts of stuff from Pawn shops etc.
I really wanted to get a 2nd sub for better coverage and I wanted to get something a bit more musical than the PL-200 (the PL-200 sounds good to my ears though).
I got a M&K V-3B sub. It's a sealed, 12' sub, and from everything I could find about it (which wasn't much since the company went under a few years back) the sub is probably 15-20 years old. It has a 100watt RMS amp, and in my testing so far it sounds REALLY good. The bass is very tight. For music I think it sounds better than the PL-200. I was very impressed. I do have to run the gain right about to 12 o'clock though to get the same sound I am getting from the PL-200 @ at 9 o'clock. I hope that won't be a problem for it over the long haul. The bass really is a bit more crisp in this sealed unit.
My hope is that they will both compliment each other, but since I can't listen to both at the same time yet, I don't know for sure... If they suck together, I'm not out much.
It does need a little TLC though, but for $30 I can't complain. The dust cap has fallen off and will just need to be re-glued back on since it's still in good shape. The pegs for the front cover are pretty much shot -- I may or may not try to fix it... Really it's in pretty rough looking shape, but still sounds great and appears to only be cosmetic.
I believe I just need to get an RCA splitter in order to run both subs. Is that correct, and if so, will this one work --> http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
This new sub also has L&R RCA Inputs, so should I also get another splitter just like the above to accommodate both channels? I have no way of knowing if one or the other is mono.
I have really been enjoying my system. I watch waaaay more TV and Movies than I ever did before. Not sure that's a good thing, but I am enjoying it.
I still plan on getting some pictures, I just have been too busy listening to my new system to get around to it
Again, thanks for your help.
