View Full Version : Well, I have a problem

Well, right now im using two floor speakers for my computer. I have an rca to 1/8(i think) mini jack going from the comp to the cd input on a Technics 185 watt amp/reciever. The floor speakers have a 15" sub, 5" mid, and 3" tweeter and theyre Marantz speakers if that matters. On the tech sticker, it says theyre 8 ohms and 165 watts max(im guessing the whole floor speaker). Well theyre old and i like loud music, so the foam surrounds on the subs have "started" to deteriorate away. Theres no surround on one and the other is okay, i patched it with some electrical tape;). Ill have pics up in a sec, my batteries are charging. Now, i would like to replace them, but I dont have much money. Does anybody know of any cheap 15's(quality isnt too much of a factor as more quality=greater cost) that are or can be wired to 8 ohms? Also what would be the consequence of getting a 6 or 4 ohm woofer?

Nice. Thanks for the advice:)
I guess ill have to do that. I got some pics so you can see what bass tests do to old surrounds:(
By the way, are these considered "high quality"? Im not too big into home audio at all, and they sound pretty good to me.

Jmanpc, was it pretty easy to do? They look nicely done btw. How long did it take? And the kit comes with 4 surrounds, right?
