    Need new amp for passive subs

    I have a pair of SVS 16-46CS+ subs that I've been running off a Samson S1000 amp for the past 5 years. Well tonight I noticed that the amp was indicating the protection circuit was tripped for one of the amps and power is definitely not being sent to the sub. I removed all connections to the amp...

    Questions about Toshiba HD-A2 and older equipment

    I have an older Mits HD TV without HDMI and my receiver is a Yamaha RX-V1 that also lacks HDMI. How much of the A2 can I actually use? Will I get HD-DVDs in 1080i? What about SD with the newest flash? Also, what do I do with the audio? I currently use a Yamaha DVD player that supports SACD...

    Strange noise from my subs - not ground loop

    I just finished installing my 12.3 upgrades, and I get a slight noise out of the subs when they are hooked up. It sounds almost like air coming out of a vent. It's very soft, and constant. I have two 16-46CS+ subs hooked to a Samson 1000 amp. I haven't heard this sound before, granted you...

    Questions about SVS Plus 12.3 Upgrade

    I'm curious about the SVS Plus 12.3 Series Woofer Upgrade. I wasn't monitoring the forums closely enough when this came out and totally missed it. I have a pair of 16-46 CS-Plus subs with a Samson S1000 that I bought in 2002 and use them each with one port plugged. With the BFD I get a pretty...

    RX-V1 DSPs not working

    Earlier today all was well, then this evening when I turned on my system to my Tivo, no sound. I checked out various settings, and could only get audio through the 6-channel input. I unplugged it and let it sit for a while, and I could get analog sources to play with the effects turned off...

    Good Barbeque in Salina KS?

    Sometime this weekend I'll be driving from KC to Salina to see a movie and I'm wondering if anybody has some recommendations on some good barbeque out that way. I know the good stuff in KC, I just figure if I'm heading out that way I ought to check out the locals.

    How to get gum off a carpeted floor mat?

    Any suggestions? I'm sure by the end of work today my car is going to have a nice cinnamony smell in it. It's quite a mess at the moment, and I don't have time to deal with it until later today. Fortunately it's only on the mat.

    Looking to get a bike

    So once again I have decided to turn to the HTF After Hours Lounge for some buying advice. I've been wanting to get a bicycle for a while now, and I've decided to do some research but frankly I don't know where to start. I'm looking mainly for something to ride around the neighborhood on just...

    Johnny Ramone is dying from cancer

    The story is here Ramones are one of my favorite bands, and with two of the core members gone, little is left. Damn this sucks.

    24: Day 3 - 4/20/04 - Hour 19

    They just had to do it. Just when the show was getting good, they had to revert to one of their old tricks: Putting Kim in danger. All I can say is it better involve a tight t-shirt, because isn't that the only reason she's on the show?

    South Park 4/14 - Poor Butters

    I'm beginning to wonder if Butters is one of TV's most tragic characters. Let's look at what we know of him: 1. His mother attempted to kill him when she found out his father is gay. 2. He's been continually rejected by society which has forced him into a life of evil. 3. He almost lost an...

    Help, I got something nasty on my car.

    While washing my car the other day I found that I got something all over it that won't come off. It's mostly on the hood, with some down the sides, and my guess is it's oil. I've got a silver car, less than a year old, and it's got little black/brown spots all over. They're very tiny and hard to...

    Missed bleep on The Daily Show - 2/26/04

    So did anyone else hear this? Jon Stewart clearly said f***er after one of the news stories. I've set up my Tivo to pick up the morning showing to see if it's still on there. It's not a live show though, so I'm surprised the censors missed it and I expect it'll still be there. I wonder if the...

    24: Day 3 - 2/24/04 - Hour 15

    "Complex problems sometimes have the simplest solutions." You just gotta love Sherry this season. Jack got another good kill today, and he tortured someone, that makes for a good episode. Does anybody else find it odd that Michelle went into the basement to pursue a potential terrorist...

    24: Day 3 - 2/10/04 - Hour 13

    Things seem to be getting interested. Now Sherry has a body count, gotta love that. I used to hate her, but now I'm so glad they brought her character back. That was just plain cold and ruthless. I don't trust the wife to keep her mouth shut though, she was pretty upset. I hope the security...

    Tripping the Rift - starts March 4th on Sci-Fi

    I just saw a commercial for it. It's about time. For those who don't know about it, a few years ago Sci-Fi showed a short film of Tripping the Rift and there's been talk of a series for some time now. I've really been looking forward to it because the short was great. It's a bizarre animated...

    Star Wars quote help needed

    All right, there's enough Star Wars geeks on here this shouldn't take to long. I'm looking for a series of quotes from the original during the attack on the Death Star.

    Question about cooling fans

    I'm wondering if anybody knows how the 3-wire cooling fans that are pretty much standard work. I see that some are rated at different RPMs and CFMs. Who controls how fast the fan goes, the MB or the fan itself? If I replace the fan in a PC with one that is faster or quieter, or whatever my goal...

    FS: Malata DVD-N996

    I bought it a bit over 2 years ago from avdeals.com. It has the latest firmware. It had some heat problems in progressive mode which was common to some of these players, so I drilled some holes in the top cover, otherwise its in excellent condition. I have all the documentation, box, etc...

    Futuruma with 2 Benders - who's seen it?

    Yesterday the good old Tivo caught an episode of Futurama I haven't seen before. It was on TBS at 1pm I think. Anyways the story involved the characters going to "Pastorama" which was a 20th Century amusement park. There they met another bending unit, I think his name was Folder, and he was just...
