My E53 update...
It is two days and I have not received a response to my email to Pioneer Support about my E53.
So, I called Pioneer yesterday morning and let the Support Rep hear the Popping in my Speakers..he advised me to return it.
I took it back to BB yesterday and the Geek Guy hooked it up and did not hear the Popping, I told him that I had reset the E53 back to Factory and it was worse after performing the MCACC.
He said that I could still return it if I wanted too and I told him that I did.
So they swapped out my E53 with a new one.
I also picked up some new speakers from BB to go with my E53...
I purchased the Bowers & Wilkins 685Bhttp://www.bestbuy.com/site/Bowers+a...&skuId=1277364
I had been checking out speakers and these for awhile at the local BB Magnolia Home Theater location.
I have also checked out the rave reviews that these speakers have gotten when you google them.
I really like them and I could have spent much less and much more LOL! but for my Apartment these should really do great!
They sounded really nice last nite and I had not even ran the MCACC yet!
They just look so small sitting on the top of my Dual 12" band Cab or this weekend sitting on top of one of my Dual 15" Subs. LOL!
Crazy the Audio that they can get out of these little speakers.
But I digress....
I got everything home and set it up pretty quick...I still need to run the Full MCACC and I will do that when I get home from work today.
So, New E53 and New Speakers!
In defense to my older E53 (I am in a Band) I was using a pair of Stage Monitors for my front Left and Right speakers, that are about 4ohms each.
I had set the E53 to it's 6ohm setting but this still may have freaked out the E53 BUT the E52 ran with my Monitors for over 2 weeks without a hiccup.
This was also why I decided to put my Stage Monitors back in the garage and purchase some actual "Home Theater" Speakers.
I do plan on using the "Sub Out" on the E53 to my Crown Power Amp and one of my Band's Subs to see how that sounds.
Each Sub is rated at 3,200 watts so my Crown Power amp will probably be on # 1. LOL!
Even at that, it may be way too much for my apartment, but I just gotta check it out!
So, I'll roll out a Sub from the Garage and try that this weekend!
Hey, you all have a Great Day and Rest of the Week!
PS. Mixing Home Audio Gear with Pro Audio Gear can be challenging, I know this. They are each to their own and the individual result that they were meant to provide.
