I have an inquiry....

Did I see pics on some of the CF photos 2 sets of ALS side by side? If so, were all four playing at the same time? I know someone mention "the wall of sound" or something to that liking.

I was curious as to the sound and if anyone had a suggestion IF you had 4 of them. :D

I wasn't there, but I'm sure they were.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

:lol:

I'm for certain it will be michigan losing although we are playing there.

I'm just wondering who we will play in the Rose Bowl. Oregon, Arizona, and/or maybe Stanford might have a shot

Re: I have an inquiry....

If I count right, Ohio State is going to the Rose Bowl no matter what, even if Michigan wins.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Bill, yes you are right.

Its not even an if. Michigan is going to lose regardless. Its a given.

We win and we're sole Big Ten Champs

Seriously though, nothing is a given. History shows that these games can go either way. I'm not counting chickens just yet. I'm not sure what offense is going to show up.

Actually, it was THREE Pair of ALS; Ray's Originals, Skip's Plats, and my AL-IIIs. All six were run simultaneously off my Sunfire 400x7. It was a sight/sound to behold (yes, those are my legs):

Thats a nice site!! Is that too much of a setup for a 15x20 room :lol: Just need to put a big screen in the middle

What was the deciding factor on the plat and originals placement?

Placement just seemed right~

Not in party mode; we were actually running each side off ONE CHANNEL (!)....can you imagine what a low ohm load THAT was?!?

Wow, but no. 2 ohms. Hell, like I would know.

And the sunfire handled it huh?

Ok, I'm gonna ask a stupid question. How did you hook up 3 speakers to each channel? Curious to know what the connection looked like

I guess I should have asked....

Does the Sunfire have a 2 channel button?

Are you saying that each speaker was plugged into each channel? Well six of them anyway andthen ran as 2 channel?

Re: I have an inquiry....

I didn't know at the time how to run parallel RCA inputs between channels, so yes, there were 3 speakers all on each channel. Looked a little something like this:

No seriously, I cut some of the wire off each one then twisted them all together. It wasn't pretty...

And yes, the TGP-IV has Stereo mode. That's where I use it almost exclusively.
