View Full Version : My Custom built Home System

Reciever: Harmon/Kardon AVR-300. $20 at a yard sale.

CD Changer/Player: Sony CDP-CX205 200 disc. $26 at a thrift shop.

Pre-Amps: 2 identical Regent HT-391 5.1 Home Theater systems converted to be used as pre-amps. traid for an older 5.1 system.

Subs: 2 10" Pioneer 400 watt IMPP $50 for the pair at Goodwill. Built the box to specs myself from scraps.
2 10" Dual 350 watt, $40 for the pair off Craigslist.

Center Channle: 2 custom built Center boxes, each consists of 2 3.25" mids with a 5.25" sub. All 4 3.25" seakers are a matching set and both 5.25" subs are a matching pair. Free

Rear: A pair of Craig 4-way Boxes that I rebuilt. Each box consists of a 4" sub, 2.5" tweeter, 1.5" tweeter and 1" tweeter. Free/came with the pre-amps

Front: A pair of 4-way Pioneer 6x9s. 200 watts. And a Pair of Dual 4-way 6x9s, 300 watts. I inherited the Pioneers and the Duals were $7 at a pawn shop.

Needless to say, there is better equiptment, but I'm proud of what I have built on such a tight budget. It is VERY LOUD. It sounds pretty good and balenced. I have it so loud on a daily basis that when in the shower, I cant here the water hit the floor. And when I get back in my room, you dont smell voice coil. not bad for a little bit of money and alot of tuning and wireing. Mind you, I have been building up this home systwem for many years, starting when I was about 8 or 9. I have this system wired perfectly. If you turn the balence knob to the left, only the left 2 subs, the left 2 6x9s and the left rear and center channle play. I have also taken great care to get the ohm mesurments correct for what the speakers are runing off of.

On a side note, I dont recomend doing this if you want your 27" CRT TV to last.

The SQ is great, I believe I stated this once befor.
IDK if your blind Still, but this isnt 13 speakers in a car, not really shure where you got that idea. And though it dosent mean they are doing it right, dose that automaticly mean they did it wrong? I'm shure 2 12" MTX 5500's, about 4 more preamps to run them and a pair or 2 of competition 6x9s would sound better, if you would like to give some to me I would be happy to change MY system for YOU.

And when your done, perhaps you should elaberate on how much I would have learned MORE about audio, buy buying that, than I did building what I have.
Also, if they are as equaly beaten, you should have no problem coming up with pics of all the other systems EXACTLY like mine.

I'd never cheat on my woman....and she knows it.

No way could I ever get another woman as good looking as her to agree to have *** with my fat ***. :crap:


I'd gladly spend the rest of my life smashing comparable females... :fyi:

what dose she look like?

you have my sympathy bud. I have been fortunately unfortunate to bang 4 chicks within the same month. one being a 19 year old cute *** young preteen looking **** *** fly *** chick.. and a normal chick and a blind chick and my gf. you dont know how stressfull it is to jugle that many chicks at once.

Tell her that if she dont put out, your gonna find some one that will..

I used to get around some when I had plenty of cash and no responsibilities.

The situation with my girl ain't so bad. We just can't do stuff whenever we like, because there's a 6 year old running around the house...

I used to bang strippers regularly when I was in my 20s. I had money and ejoyed cocaine. I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but most strippers and bar ****** LOVE some cocaine. :)

It's a miracle that I don't have rotten crotch of epic proportions...

Please, do yourself a favor and take those speakers out of there. There are many, MANY reasons why home audio speakers are a million times better in home audio applications than car audio speakers. Just a couple starters...

The enclosures (cabinets, as they are called in the home audio world) are built to the manufacturer's desired specifications for the drivers. No Kraco box is going to come close to perfect for those drivers.

The dispersion pattern is vastly different. I only have the common sense, not the technical know-how to explain this.

Now just solely based on the enclosures, home audio speakers sound MUCH better and have MUCH better output in cars than the majority of car audio based speaker systems. Do not, however, account in subwoofers in that statement. Subsonic frequencies have much greater output in cars than in homes because most subs are tuned near the resonant frequency of a car. Houses have a much higher resonant frequency.

Now sure, your system is going to be a night-and-day difference in sound quality and output over some ****** htib. Don't expect it to compare either way to a properly set up system of home audio speakers. You can keep the subs, as they will perform near as well as home audio subs, given a proper enclosure with spiked feet.

Now I would have given you the benefit of a doubt if you wouldn't have made the epically poor decision of dissing vintage speakers. I would pay you to find a pair of brand new speakers that can even run in the slightest with my speakers. Post on Audiokarma.org and ask them what new speakers could come close to touching a pair of Infinity Reference Standard 2.5's in sound quality or output, in a music or movie setting. If you are cocky about it, things will turn out much worse there than they have turned out here.

If you are wondering why, here's a couple things for you to consider. The vast majority of vintage speakers were made in Japan, America, and Europe. The vast majority of modern speakers are Chinese made, probably a good 90% of them compared to the 10% of before. If the reason why this makes the newer speakers more poor than they used to be isn't obvious to you, then carry on with your current setup.

Next, most pre-80s speakers were not designed for home theater applications, given the lack of surround sound processors and relative movies. Regardless, speakers like my aforementioned speakers will do just as good a job in theater applications as new speakers, but murder them when it comes to music.

Now make us proud and sell ALL those speakers and pick yourself up a pair of JBL 4311B's/L100's, Technics SB-6000/7000/7070's, Pioneer HPM-100's, ESS AMT-1B's, Heritage-line Klipsch, the list goes on. You can thank me later.
