i heard they can cook eggs as they get so hot, that's why i got my pioneer, but that was 4 years ago .

i have to go back to work on Sunday and no speakers yet. FedEx says its "scheduled" for tomorrow(even though the site says today but it probably didn't take Xmas into account) but the tracking hasn't been updated since last Friday. i hate waiting, ebay/polk needs drone shipping

Yay...finally got my banana plugs. What's the best way to get the binding plug out...a knife, flathead screwdriver?

That's just wrong. You need to be moved to a safe house or something. I'm pretty sure they will clip your nails and beat you when necessary biggrin.gif
post #26744 of 34670
ok thanks everyone...here's what's left of my speakers after your fine suggestions:

post #26745 of 34670

so how do they sound?
post #26748 of 34670
Okay people. In a more serious note. I need to decide if 1) I should buy a 2 channel pro-amp crown, qsc, etc? 2) Buy a used XPA-2 for $550 or 3) Just forget about it and leave it alone lol?

The issues with the pro-amp would be noise level. So a fan mod will be needed.

If I remember right it's for your surrounds? Leave it alone. Buy me something instead.

Fed-Ex and UPS apparently had a lot of problems with things getting to people on time for Christmas. I can imagine they will be backed up at least until after the new year. The waiting sucks lol. Ya know guys I'm checked this forum like 4 or 5 times since I got up this morning and I swear every time I come back there is like 60-80 more posts to read through lol!! You guys must be all hopped up on cookies and milk. Mmmm cookies and milk sounds good. I'm so glad I have my iPhone since my Aunt has no internet. I got a ps3 for christmas after mine was stolen earlier this year. My girl got me an 80gb phat!! Haha I actually like the look and the touch power/disk drive buttons more then the slim I had and certainly more then the newest version which seems cheap. My aunt only has one tv here so I have a "new" ps3 and no tv to play it on!! 😨 I even was able to recover my account which is awesome. I was thinking of getting a ps4/xbox1 earlier this year but I'm going to wait a few years until the systems are more mature and all the bugs are worked out. I want to go to my buddies to get my smoke damaged speakers and avr and hook them up to my ps3, 😱 I'm in a small room and there is no room for a HT, I might have a problem!! At least I'm off today. Lol

if you wanna be lazy get the xpa-2. if you feel like tinkering get the pro amp.

if you wanna cry like a baby when unboxing, get the xpa-2. if you wanna feel herculean get the proamp.

if you wanna be ridiculed by "audiophiles" get either one.

Yes, it is for my surround speakers. I'm thinking the same. I think I'm just going to leave it alone. However, if I am able to find 2 more Outlaws M2200, I will be all over those for the right price though. biggrin.gif
