  1. Whats the minimum distance you'd recommend having between the magnet and the wall of the box for a sealed box? Its a small box, maybe 1.5cuft.
  2. I have had a problem with my 880prs recently within the past 4 months where it will only play out of 1 speaker in my front stage. My two rear door speakers are using the head units amp, they are unaffected. But every morning I get into my car, it will only play out of the driver's side speakers. If I turn the head unit off and on for about 5-10 mins (if I'm lucky), it will cut back on and everything will play fine if I dont mess with any settings on the head unit. Its not a wiring problem since everything is hooked up as it has been for the past 2 years; the problem just came out of no where. It will be playing fine while I'm listening to my cd player, but when I switch to the radio or change the eq settings it will only play out of 1 speaker again. Has anyone had any problems like this with their 880prs or any hu in general?
  3. One of my mid-bass' has blown and I need to order another another speaker, but is there anyway through the company I can order just the 1 mid-bass? Or am I pretty much screwed and just need to order a whole new set. It's for the speakers in my sig.
  4. I need to extend my 4ga power and grounds by about 5-7ft. I had to do this about 5 or 6 years ago and was able to get an extender from a local shop, but I'm looking for something online and can't seem to find it. I don't have access to a welder either. Suggestions?

    Which tv?

    I'm about to order a tv later today. I'm upgrading from a 32" Sharp. I wanted a +40". I've found 2 1080p models that I've pretty much narrowed it down to. Which would you go with? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889112025 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889102202
  6. I built a temporary sealed box for my SSD, but I didn't have a router around so I ended up using a jigsaw to cut the circle for the sub. I also flush mounted it. Its sealed up except for one spot where I had a WTF moment on the jigsaw. Any tips on sealing it up? I was thinking about caulking it up around the entire hole (thats what she said) but thought maybe theres an alternative.
  7. So I just recieved my 15" SSD with copper coil in the mail Thursday. I originally planned to go sealed in about 2cuft, but I have about 3.1cuft after all displacement to play with, so I was thinking about porting it. I wanted the install to be strictly sq, so I was thinking about 28Hz or so. My question is, has anyone here tuned it that low? If so, how's the sound quality? And if no one has, what tuning would you recommend for a sq setup?

    How long to recieve sub from FI?

    I'm about to order from Fi, but I wanted a general idea of how long it takes for them to ship it out. I would email Fi directly, but they have been slow lately.
  9. Where do you all buy your suedes and vinyls? I can't really find anything around where I live. I did find a butter suede, might give it a try, but where do you all buy it from? It doesn't have to be real suede as it can get kind of expensive. I found some stuff on egay, anyone have a comment on this? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350016871773&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

    What equilizer do you use?

    I'm in the market for one shortly, just thought I'd see who has had good experiences with what. I'm looking at that 30 band kicker one on ebay right now.
  11. I'm doing some upgrades, and i'm getting rid of my old ram and video card. I ordered them from newegg and i still have the original receipt. the ram is 2 512mb sticks of corsair xms. here's a link to the exact product. running smooth, i just need another gig for the games. 5-5-5-15 timings, ddr2 800. i haven't tried overclocking it, but i've heard of a lot of people getting some decent timings out of it. they are about 6 months old, so i'm looking for $50 obo. the video card is a xfx 7600gt. its pci-express, already has the lifetime waranty and its transferrable. here's a link to it. i got it to overclock to 600mhz on the core clock and about 630mhz on the memory. was able to up the 3dmark scores by 500 points or so. its also 6 months old, and absolutely nothing wrong with it. i paid almost $150 for it new, so i'll take $100 obo. i dont have any original pics up, but if anyone turns out they might be interested in them, i can take some. i'm very open to offers, so post them up if you are interested.
