Just finished replacing+testing my "new" rear speakers courtesy of Neil.
I must say, that for the few minutes while all four speakers were
working, I was absolutely floored when I hit a station that was in
perfect tune, playing a song that had some excellent engineering.
The result was astonishing; I truly felt like I was -surrounded- by
sound. It's an experience I only get from an excellent pair of
speakers, positioned perfectly, with my head in just the right sweet
spot. I know it when I hit it...and the system hit it.
Of course, about 2-3 minutes later, the left front speaker, which has
been on the fritz, conked out, so I had slightly less than a perfect
effect...but that's okay. Phish's Twist sounded absolutely
phenomenal with the woofers functioning perfectly.
I have a rattle in the right front under heavy, deep, constant
bass(such as in the soundtrack to Riven, which is also impressive
with lots of bass) that I have to sort out; Neil has suggested I
verify that all screws(he says there are -many-) are all tight. The
unit is secured, he reports, to the door and NOT the door panel(which
is very good news; that wasn't the case on my old 5000, which despite
having pretty okay balanced sound from the 10 speakers, couldn't
muster any sort of bass without the panels setting up a vibration of
almost frightening proportions.)
PS: check the web
page(http://www.quattroclubusa.org/events/ne_fun_run.html) to see
where the fall run will be when/where tomorrow. We're going all
around the middle of NE for most of the day, we're going to be close
I'm sure to at least a few of you. I hope at least a FEW of you will
try and meet up with us :-) The weather is supposed to be PERFECT
for tomorrow. As Neil put it, "Turbo weather."
