    Default Resurrecting my old two-channel rig

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend I went to vist my sister in Phoenix. To my dismay she took the pride and joy system of my college years and replaced it with a norcent htib. The system consists of a Denon DRA-545R and a pair of Klipsch KG 1.2's. After scolding her for her lack of taste, i packed them up and brought them back to San Diego with me.

    First thing I did was throw everything off the kitchen table and hooked them up to my Music Hall MMF 2.1 turntable (a pain in myside that will be the brunt of another thread). The excitment was like getting the best gift ever Christmas morning. Brought a tear to my eyes. My new-old two channel rigs sounds great. Then it happen, a little wobble in the sound while listening to Peter Gabriel Games without Frontiers. She blew one of the speakers!!! Not terrible to listen to, almost not noticable, but enough that I need to replace the woofer.

    So I've done a little hunting and found a replacement speaker from Klipsch for $64. I might as well replace both so thats $124. Seems a little steep, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a place I can get a respectable replacement without investing much money.

    Thanks

    I think you answered your own question. Sounds like a great way to spend $120~.
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.
