My smoker is a Brinkman Pitmaster, one of the old heavy gauge metal ones... I picked it up at an estate sale for $12 because non one saw her true potential. Some cleaning, home welding, a new paint...

I have a Carver M-1.0t I could lend you, if I can find it.

Maybe not. His CV's peak at 127 dB. The Kappa's make 113 dB at 256W (250W is their max power)
Depends on your definition of good. CV's never sounded that good to me because they are from an era that valued high SPL and hard hitting bass when powered with a 40 watt receiver over musical...
Should i be looking for a diff model if i like to crank it?
Yes. I grew up with the big CV's and I can tell you are the kind of guy who wants it loud and wants to feel it. A speaker with a 15"...
The CV's will produce much much more kick for the same power and achieve higher SPLs. The sensitively is 102 dB and max output is 127 dB. They get down to 28 Hz -3 db. Great party speaker and...
Sheffield Audio is where I demo'd the SDA SRS in 1988. They wanted $3.000/pair. A few months later I visited NC and found a place that sold me the SRS 1.2's for $2,500+ tax shipped to Houston. ...
The Carvers were challenged by trying to overcome a profound lack of power if they were driven by a 1.5t... The reason the Silver 7' tube amps and the solid state versions were created in the first...
In 1988, I extensively auditioned the Carver Amazing Speakers and SRS1.2's in the same room with the same Carver M1.5t amp and the Polk's won, especially in dynamic range and impact. Both speakers...
If these are the ones the OP referenced, they are not 1.2's or 1.2TL's. With the blade/blade IC, the SL2000's and the 6503 MW's they are the...
How did this photo of my prepper shelter get online?
I've owned the 1.2s since 1988. They are my best and last speaker until I have to downsize at the nurning home.
Remember the overhead night vision IR shots of the Boston marathon bomber hiding in the boat? We adopted his cat.

Tony, Steve, Jake,
Thanks for the kind words. I really got lucky finding a 41 year old car in such pristine, original condition. She had two previous owners, older gentlemen, a USAF colonel and...
I love the look of the old, small displacement, British stuff even though it doesn't have the power.
Same here :)
She was hired but she got kicked off the show for the pic I posted. Now she works at the store, off camera. I removed the pic because it was way too much and apologize if anyone was offended.

901 sound quality was proportional to weed quality :mrgreen:
Those babies should really open up and sing after 200 hours of burn-in http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/images/smilies/037/icon_cool.gif
Best speakers I have ever heard when powered right. Nice recent acquisition BTW.
Your inbox is full. Sent you a PM..
Glad you were able to get them before I decided I couldn't pass them up.http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/images/smilies/037/icon_mrgreen.gif
Now you owe me a listen.
