Haha, you think our household wasn't seeing its fair share of Glee prior? I had to keep the peace then too!

Just got mine last week to replace the a 2.1 Logitech computer speakers, wow...it is like upgrading from a sh*tbox 1995 Miata to Porsche 911. Prior to this, I bought a Pany Soundbar from Walmart and I was not way compare to my Logitech PC speakers so the soundbar was returned. I have a 54" Pany TC-P54G25 Plasma and everything are connected from my PC, I don't have a DVD or Bluray player. I was hesitated to get this system due to lack of HDMI input/output, however, I connect HDMI straight to PC to TV, toslink from PC to receiver, toslink from TV to receiver for TV shows/programs. I can't compare to others systems and I don't know whether it sounds $1K or $2K but it sounds good and the wife is really happy. Just make sure to get a couple Toslink (optical) and additional speaker wires for rear speakers, supplied speaker wires are three 10 ft for Front/Center/Lefts and 30ft for rear surround speakers are not enough for me (25x15 room).

I like the reviews on SLS Q-Line Gold speaker set. Speakers are rated 4ohm. Is denon avr-1911 compatible with that. I read somewhere avr-1911 recommended with 6 to 16 ohm speakers. Is it bad for the sound quality?

This will be my first speaker set and I am confused with the possibilities.

I will use this set for mostly movies, but also like to listen good quality music time to time.

I have been through two receivers--first went went wonky, doing random things--dimming the display, changing inputs, volume, etc. I made sure it wasn't the remote by pulling the batteries. So SLS replaced it under warranty. Then 2nd receiver just kinda died. Now you hear it, now you hear a bit of mild static, now you hear... silence. Complete power down; power on; a bit of audio, some static, then silence.

The sub is in the attic (not bad, but kinda boomy, lacking on the very low end). The receiver is going out for the trash today. I have a spare remote--anyone interested?

The old Yamaha integrated stereo amp works really well with the SLS speakers on the passive Infinity bandpass box sub.

It may be beside the point...AV express is listed those speakers as out of stock and I hear they think they can get a few more systems, but the supply is almost out.
I have had the reciever for 6 months and it has been very good...except the lack of hdmi! With that AV-rec being so old (released in 2006?), I would think they would be best off selling the speaker sets alone....

I took a closer look at the SLS sub, it looks to be net about .8 cu ft, volume with a 3" port that's 9" long. That would be a 46 Hz tuning.

I found a driver that models pretty well in it, a Dayton DCS205-4 8", you'd have to extend the port to 14" long using a 90 degree bend. That gets you an F3 of 35.8 Hz, which is probably 10 -11 Hz lower than the stock setup. Produces 104dB at 50 watts.

Might be an interesting project someday, the driver is pretty cheap.

Hi guys,

I'm completely new to this surround sound thing (as well as hooking up video / audio cables). I've typically just been using the speakers on my TV so the full extent of my experience is connecting the PS3 to the TV.

After ordering the SLS Q-Line Gold, all the wires and possible connections are a little overwhelming. Can someone advise on how exactly I can go about hooking up my plasma TV (Samsung PN59D8000) with a HD cable box, my PS3 and the SLS Q-Line Gold? Do I need to purchase any cables currently not in the box?

Appreciate any help at all.

Thanks,
Sam

You will need a optical digital cable. The Sherwood reciever doesn't have Hdmi ports...but does have toslink optical and coaxial connectors for digital transmission.

Thanks. I will order a digital audio optical TOSLink cable from Amazon then.

However, it sounds like I will need two optical digital inputs on the receiver, one for the TV and one for the PS3, but the SLS Q-Line Gold only comes with one. Any suggestions as to workarounds?

Thanks.

I think you may have to run any "additional" opticals through your TV?! My SLS system doesn't have a PS3 to deal with, so....

Looks like the Sherwood does have 2 TOSLink optical ins and 2 coax digital ins so you should be fine.
http://www.sherwoodusa.com/pdf/RD-8601.PDF

Worst case scenario, get a TOSLink to coax adaptor from monoprice for $12 to convert your TOSLink optical output to a coax digital input for the receiver.

Parts Express Model 830667, Part# 264-1102. About $60.00 It is the same as the one that came with my AV Express unit. The coil came lose and started making a rattling noise. AV Express send me another woofer that made a worse sound than the one I replaced, I think a return because the paper was torn half way around the cone. I don't think AV Express was aware of the tear as you had to compress the speaker to reveal the tear... I repaired it with RTV, sounds great now. I wanted to find a back up as these will be hard to find and replace in the furture. Searching found Parts Express.

Is the center speaker identical to the other speakers in the Q-Line Gold series?

The Q-Line center is the same as the others in the set except the SLS logo is placed horizonal as would be for a center speaker. They have 2 x 4" Kevlar Cone Woofer & 1 x 1 1/4 Ribbon Tweeter. 4 Ohm.

From my owner's manual, it also notes that the center channel is magnetically shielded. Also, unless it's changed, my owner's manual says that all the satellites are 6 ohms.

Looking in the manual it does say the speakers are 6 Ohm. InVinoVeritas you are right. So I decided to look at one of the speaker... The lable on the back of the speaker says they are in fact 4 Ohm. Go figure!

This 4 ohm/ 6 ohm discrepancy was noticed a while back in this thread. I think everyone decided that the speakers are actually 4 ohm.

I'm still using the speakers. The speakers are 4 ohm. Confirmed by SLS. My woofer drive broke and i put cheap pyle drive and it works well.

 

my receiver also died and replace to HK avr 1650. I am still glad that I picked this system. 

 

Anyone still happy about the set?

Bumping this really old thread to say I am still using the SLS speakers as surrounds in one system I have in my house and have two additional speakers in a system in my garage! Excellent little speaker, as long as you don't expect bass below 120 hz or so...

It's been about 10 years since I bought my SLS speakers and they still sound great. I really didn't expect to see this tread ever again but I'm glad there are others still enjoying them as well. It you are still rocking them, please chime in.
