Alot of views but no answers. Would a amp suffice or would I need a crossover? I have a small 120 amp would it work?
Hence the shrug. My experience is such that I could not really offer anything substantive... Sorry!

No just not a well known brand. Got it at my local thrift store for $15. Here are some pics I don’t see any type of problem maybe someone can see something I don’t? If anything I can always get a amp later on.

I’m gonna have to get a site to upload the rest as they say the file is too large. Be back in a flash.
Lights are on. Raha haha. Testing and bass is kicking arse. Eat your heart out JP & Pogre.:cool:

Thanks Dave and guys for the likes! Put that sub to work and it’s really a good one. I’d say equally as good as the Dayton I used to own or better. Thank goodness for my luck.

Well I’m getting a little help from Black Widow to check to see if something is working. Bahaha. Stay tuned.

Well thank goodness the Onkyo TX-504 (no HDMI) works. :p Hooked them up to my DCM and sweet sounds come out. This speakers surprise me every time with great highs and good tight rumble in the bass. Vol control at 32-40 is loud enough. If you want a party 50 (77 is the highest it goes) would be plenty. Gonna check out the subwoofer input later on, but honestly don’t need it. Pics were taken in the living room area. Hooked up to my Cowon X5 mp3/Flac music player. Rah

Pick these up at my local thrift store thanks to Pogre. Reviews say these have good midrange and decent bass output. I had hoped the tweeters were not damaged and gladly they are not, phew. If you read the review I agree with the reviewer. These were dusty and dirty. I cleaned the outer casing with bleach last night with a cloth and now they look almost new. My first pair of speakers in white and boy they look a lot better and classy than the black/grey offering. The covers were dirty I cleaned them with a old toothbrush and soap only and they look great now after drying overnite. I won’t use them anyway. It has a ding on the right speaker on the back, but thankfully in back and can’t be seen. I might use these as PC speakers if I ever get a PC. Music to my amazement sound pretty darn good. Always been told to stay away from them Polk. Anyway some pics to wake up the forum. :p

Got this Bolva 40 inch the same day. My first 4KTV for under $40. I’m surprised by the image quality. It’s no LG, but looks better than I thought after tweaking the settings to my liking. Look at the left side to see the 4K text. Some pics, but way better looking in person:

None of these pics were enhanced in any way. Just cropped. What you see is straight out of the cell phone camera.

Awesome find and they look smashing in white!
Thanks John I really like the white it really looks great in person. I hoped you’d approve. No Canton, but these sound pretty good. Treble is really good and bass for a five inches ain’t bad. Buble sounds good.

You're on a tear Joe!
Thanks Jim! Had so much cleaning up in that room now it’s tidy. Maybe next week I’ll give the room a good mop up. Hopefully this room will keep my sanity intact in these intense days. That is my mission. I’ve been very lucky finding stuff this year. Truly blessed. Gonna tune up the sub to my liking with my cds today.

It has arrived. Lots of BASS on this Billie Eilish record and a bit of scratches, but overall good. Gotta compare to CD later on. Guy on the left record cover is gifted opera singer Mario Lanza. It’s a great live recording and the only in existence according to the sleeve info.

Saw this at the thrift store 7.1, but I have no need for it. Only picked up three cds today.

Hiya Jim! I grew up listening to all types of music. I listened to pop rock, Latin, oldies rock(50s-70s), etc. radio stations. Later on I got into Jazz/Classical. Yep I’m pretty diverse. I’ve been to a lot of concerts in NY, but not recently in almost 3 years being in Florida I haven’t yet! Damn 3 years almost. Times flies away. I miss my city. :( Eydie Gorme Spanish with Los Panchos LP(almost mint) was a curious one. I never heard her stuff and was curious to see if she could pull them off. She was Jewish. She handled her vocals perfectly. I’d like to get a Spanish compilation of her that’s how great she was. Reading online she grew up listening to Spanish music in her parents home.

Got these Insignia speakers at the thrift store for cheap yesterday after seeing some decent reviews online. I wanted some low profile surrounds in my stereo room for a SACD/DVD-A to be setup soon. Played some jazz music and played a bit of the movie Twister and they sound pretty darn decent.

I added a couple of pads to point and angle the tweeter closer to my ears. Cheap solution and works great. I know nothing exciting and expensive for some people, but times are real tough. :p
