i recently fired my grandparents old Marantz 2238B reciever they had replaced a few years ago. thought i would give it a try and see how it worked, well it started out really fuzzy when i turned the dials and the buttons often did not work unless you played with em ya know. so i got some contact cleaner and took it all apart and sprayed every dial and button connection i could see. to my surprised self, it worked very well. clear sound and no distortion when moving any dials. i don't know what the watt output is for each speaker channel, but i also hooked up some three way speakers. each speaker box stands 24 inches high, 12 inches deep, and 14 inches wide. the original subs were shot, so i replaced them with these 10" Xplodes rated at 1100 watts max power for each. now i had pearl harbor in and it sounded phenominal. better than anything i ever heard. some moments in the show though, and not necessarily bombings or explosions, but mainly the music level and that such thing, sometimes plane engines would make the subs bottom out. why the hell are they bottoming out? i know each channel on this reciever is not putting out more than the sub can handle. i turn the bass down but i don't want to do that because then the movie aint worth watching ya know. whats my problem here? thanks!
