    First Guess: Polk ran out of pin/blade cables before they ran out of blade/blade cables; and when the blade/blade inventory is gone, there'll be no more because the component ends used to make the...

    The stainless steel bolt is ferric because it's iron-based like all steel. The point is not "ferric vs. non-ferric", the point is that the stainless bolt must be non-magnetic; and most of them are. ...

    I suppose the troubleshooting guide was never updated to include models made after publication of the Guide.

    There's a trouble-shooting guide that's already been linked-to in an earlier post.

    The end result is that if the SDA wiring and drivers are working, the soundstage will be hugely wide, and if it...

    WHAT SPEAKERS???




    1. Amp connected in PROPER POLARITY? SDA effect is obliterated if the polarity of both speakers is backwards. A batch of SDA-SRS (1.2, perhaps?) were built with the...

    I assumed laying down with the styrofoam shipping form on the top. Looked more styrofoam than carpet to me.

    Do I understand this correctly? You need either another receiver, or an integrated amp, or a preamp and power amp?

    Do you ever listen to broadcast radio? I don't. There's no reason to buy a...

    If I could put them in checked luggage, I'd take 'em. I'll be there in a week--but no way to get them home, and no storage there.

    STOP. Verify that you have a common-ground amplifier. An ohmmeter connected across the negative terminals of the two channels should read less than one ohm, lower is better.

    I bought an 800 VA transformer from a member here who upgraded to the 1000 VA on the first group-buy. I purchased some SpeakOn sockets and cable ends. I have found an "enclosure" that satisfies...

    Someone tried to get a group-buy organized a few months ago. I remember it happening, but I don't remember who, or exactly when. I searched a little but couldn't find the thread.

    You pretty much cannot make a "bad" choice; just about any of your options are better than continuing to use the original electrolytic caps.

    Probably 1B rather than 1C. "Studio" style cabinets in black might be 1Cs, but in brown they're almost certainly 1Bs.

    I gave you all this info long ago, but to reinforce:

    Rebuilding the crossovers was the second-best thing I ever did to my 1Bs, the single-most important was to put a jumper-wire between the...

    In normal use, we put current through the voice-coil, in the magnetic gap, to make the driver move. We use the conductor and magnetism to produce movement--we use it as a motor.

    I moved 1Bs 250 miles in a 1980 Honda Civic hatchback. A Tacoma should be no problem.

    If I remember correctly, there's a pair of 130uF caps in each speaker, you'd need four altogether. Yes, that's going to be expensive if you buy film caps. Also huge! I needed four 91uF caps for my...
