    Sony Xplod Sub + AMP question

    you are usually better overpowering a little bit than underpowering, as long as you have everything setup properly, especially since subs usually have a really high max. I know for me Iam running two 12' subs that run at 350 RMS and I have an 800W amp and I was only able to blow them once when I...

    Just bought a new MP3 player now I need headphones

    or perhaps the RP-HC50 they are the same price and everything but are ear buds. Which do you think will have a better sound and will it improve on the headphones I have already?

    Just bought a new MP3 player now I need headphones

    I was kind of thinking of the panasonic RP-HC70 are these any good? Right now I have the sony ear clip ones but those get crackly at low frequencys will these peform better than that? I like the noise cancelling since Iam on the bus 5 days a week and it is nice to cancel all that outside noise.

    is this a problem (possible serious)

    Okay well see I was using my mp3 player and i figured to save battery on that i can have it output low and then just turn up the reciever to compensate apparently that was dumb lol So how can I tell if they are damaged or not?

    is this a problem (possible serious)

    When I have the volume turned up (near max) all my speakers start getting this static like sound, and it is really annoying inbetween songs so just wondering is something wrong with the reciever or is this normal?

    Mp3 player question

    the iriver uses a different battery but i was wondering is it possible to change the irivers battery? Like I know you can with the ipod, even though iriver claims it is good for 6 years companies tend to stretch that a little, and I really dont like the idea of a 500$ (canadian) disposable mp3...

    is this site reliable?

    So bill are you saying this iriver might be refurbished? Or are you saying the products that are refurbs suck? Because in its description it says nothing about being refurbished
