Hello, this is my first post. I have been a lookie loo for a month or so. Thanks for all of your interesting and informative posts.
I finally threw away my sony HT in a box my in-laws gave me for x-mas a few years ago. I just decided to check out some polk stuff, and did not want to really ever buy another set of speakers again. My dad purchased the SDA's back in 89' and has not moved them out of there "spot". So I just thought I would try out the LSI 15's, LSI Center. I looked, and looked at what amp to buy. I was going to go with the onk 805 or 806, but when I called Accessories for less, I decided to upgrade to Marantz sr8001, per Mark's salesmanship stating it will run these speakers fine. It sounds really nice, but when my wife and I throw house parties (few times a week) and have the volume up to +8 and higher, it only plays a few songs and gets so hot, you can't touch it, and starts playing distorted, so we turn it down. The amp got great reviews saying it was an audiophile and videophile AVR. Since our last party I have been looking at the Marantz Mono block amps 500/700 to just power the Lsi15's. Those amps are pretty cheap 125/200 respectively. It sounds great and we love these speakers.
Any suggestions, I am still looking for a sub. Thinking DSW Micropro 1000/2000. Thanks for all your help. Jeremy
I find that I am on this forum more than Project-JK, My old Jeeper forum, that I was on every night!:D All my Casino friends say I went from spending all my money on my Jeep, to speakers.
It's a Jeep thing, you would'nt understand... I find that phrase applies to this as well...
