    FS: 2 Adire Audio Tempest Drivers w/IB box

    Hi, I am assuming that these are original tempests and not the newest versions? Are they both DVC 8ohm? Shipping cost on these will determine if I can get these, as I live in BC. If I pm you my address can you get an estimate on shipping?

    FS: Adire Audio Tumult, DPL-12, Mass 2012, Gr-Research speakers and more

    I am very interested in the Adire Tumult, however I am located in Canada. If you were able to ship it, what would you figure it would cost to V1L 6V6, BC Canada?

    UGH! HAD it with Dell...!

    Working as a computer tech, over half of the systems that came in for repairs were Dell. Their re-installations cds are pretty worthless too. I advise people to look elsewhere when Dell comes up in conversation.

    Old Laptop

    You can buy controller cards for Laptop LCDs, but they tend to be quite expensive. A brand new 15" LCD would be basically the same cost.

    DVD drive

    I also would recomend lite on and pioneer. I use the slot load pioneer 106s and like it a lot. It can be noisey on startup when it spins fast, but at movie watching it runs much quieter.

    Google Earth. Has anyone ever used this offline?

    I'm not sure where they are saved, but an easy thing to do would be to screen capture the images. Hit the print screen button (print scrn) and then paste in an image editor. then you can save them as what ever format you want.

    FS: Large unique starwars hangable cutout for HT

    Price dropped to $100 US + shipping! These things would look awesome in a large home theatre, especially for a fan of Star Wars. They have to go as I will not have room for them. :)

    Home Theater Pics Finally Done....What do you think?

    I feel the jealousy rising within me... :emoji_thumbsup: It's disheartening seeing this kind of stuff 'cause I'm not sure if I'll ever get to have/experience it. :frowning:

    My Computer Takes 4 Minutes+ to Boot, I Hate It!

    WinXP uses 128MB of ram just to boot. 512MB is the realistic minimum for optimum performance.

    Disk Drive Problem

    If all 3 stop working at the same time it is possible that the IDE channels themselve are failing. This happens sometimes when the motherboard is on it's last leg. Is you harddrive on the same IDE channel as one of the malfunctioning optical drives? A windows reinstall may solve the...

    FS: B&K ST1430 Series II - 3 Ch. Power Amp

    Ditto on the pics. I just recently bought a B&K stereo amp from a member here. This might be a good addition to it. :)

    SVS or Build

    Really you can't go wrong with either root. Unless SVS has free shipping, I'd expect that to add a lot to the final cost... enough to possibly pay for a DIY cabinet. I personally am a big fan of DIY.

    Does anyone know of the card/cards that support 3 monitors?

    To be honest I'm not sure if it'll work. You would need a PCI card powerful enough to keep up, and for the most part they do not exist. What games do you intend on playing on 3 monitors? I ask because only a small percentage of games can be played over 3 monitors.

    WTD: Decent Stereo amp for my 261s

    Thank you Carl! For those who care, the above message doesn't apply, as Carl was simply away for a few days. I'm just too anxious I guess :b . Carl was great to deal with and I would do so again without hesitation.

    Does anyone know of the card/cards that support 3 monitors?

    Mark, it depends on your application... are you intending on playing 3d games, or just desktop use? If you are planning on playing 3d games then the pci card most likely will not work, as it wont have enough power to keep up.

    Does anyone know of the card/cards that support 3 monitors?

    The only 3 monitor AGP card capable of running games of that kind that I know of is the Matrox Parhelia. It it somewhat old now, and will not be capable of playing the newest games. However, that card is designed for 3d applications. If all you need is 3 screens for desktop, multimedia...

    DIY Sub Questions (Atlas 15)

    For a down firing sub, the minimum leg length is typically half the diameter of the driver. IE a 15" down firing sub should have 7.5" legs.

    Htpc Software Needs

    You may find that running a game console through the HTPC, and upscaling it, could cause some latency. IE: you push a button and the game "responds" on the screen a fraction of a second later. However, check out htpcnews.com for a ton of HTPC advice, and here for info on upscaling and...

    Have you thought about selling the kids and getting even louder/better speakers? Hehe

    Help Build My Home Theater System

    Balzac I have a somewhat different idea for you :) Have you thought possibly about taking your speaker budget and putting it toward the best stereo pair you can afford? In my opinion it is much easier to add pieces later as you can afford it, as opposed to buying a full lower end 5.1 or 7.1...

    overpowering a sub(but just by a little)

    Depending on the enclosure type you may hit the mechanical limits of the driver before reaching the thermal limits. The tempest based sub I am running has a 360W amp into 4ohms and there is no way I can use close to all that power before it would bottom out the driver. However, my sub is ~10...

    WTD: Decent Stereo amp for my 261s

    As the title says, I am looking for a decent stereo amp for my Exodus 261s. I have a modest budget of $300-350 CND (including shipping). That is about $250-290 US. I know my budget doesn't allow for too much, but I am getting to the point where I am anxious. I have been checking the forums...
