    It's here and it works

    The new 250 came and I put it right on top of the 450. Works really well. In fact, this isn't a bad combo at all. Of course the 250 doesn't have a range as low as the 450, but that seems to be all...

    All,

    Doc made an excellent point that I left out: High frequencies do seem to pose their own special risks. And it's interesting, too, that hearing loss usually manifests itself first as loss in...

    Hey, tgqsrd,

    The CC problems may be old news but I never had any real snags with them until the last 18 months or so. I even recall a situation when I bought my Polk 450 and a couple of Polk...

    my thanks

    Y'all are terrific, as usual. Many thanks. I'll stack them up. I'm assuming phase switch on both subs should be set the same. The 450 is at 0 now; planning on setting the 250 the same way unless it...

    A word of caution about your ears

    10Bs still in service

    Bought my Monitor 10Bs in 1989 on my wedding day (it's a long story involving alcohol, wicked hangovers and an early-morning adventure involving a friend from out of town and a nasty landlady)....

    Adding a second sub

    I'm already running a Polk 450 sub out from a Denon AVR 3801, and tonight I decided to take advantage of Polk's offer to buy a PSW250 at a closeout price (it's being discontinued). My plan is to run...

    God love Niles, indeed

    Right you are, Mantis: I did this because I wanted to see what the system sounded like for home theater with the Adcom out of the loop. And the balance is better.

    Funny thing, though: I've been...

    amp selector?

    I have a Denon AVR 3801, but I run my front speakers -- Polk Monitor 10Bs -- off an Adcom GFA 555 stereo amp, which is connected to the Denon via the Denon's preamp outs.

    Works fine, but I'd like...

    preouts

    They're not for looks, they do vary in quality, and they are for getting external amps into the system. I run my old Adcom GFA-555 on the front stereo portion of my HT system, feeding it signal from...

    It's pronounced exactly the way it looks. The "L" is not silent. Matthew himself revealed it to me in a vision I had after some really good Triaminicin.

    Time to call Polk

    This is a warranty issue all the way. I've played speakers too loud and cracked 'em up more than I care to admit, but never, ever have I been able to abuse a speaker enough to make this happen....
