that's what i always believed....thanks again mike for the time spent checking out my amp. kudo's to you,


Can I qualify that?
Being really lazy yesterday as I experimented with some of my junk, failed to turn everything off and down.

One of my woofers went inside out. ](*,)

Sometimes you can have too much. :lol: :lol:


sounds like you did not have enough woofer to me, as the power was ample enough to eat up the weak and desolate woofers.....

I would like to "pay back" and have enjoyed the conversation and advice a lot, so anticipate checking in as I can. My #1 priority however, is my daughter. As it is, I feel a little guilty for the vast amount of time I spent on the computer researching this and other needs surrounding the home theater and music listening. I will also be wiring up the satelite speakers and running the ethernet myself after all, due to the bid being out of our budget.

For all, I have bought Angelo's Sunfire ($ in the mail) and am happy with the decision. :-)

Peace,
Kirsten



so the money never showed up, she said she used a money source that made out a check, i said cancel it as it never reach me, she was gonna send it again i think, but that never happened either. i guess something came up, or she got cold feet. either way, some guy around here that trolls from time to time , you fucking fuck, bought all three extra's that i had. the first one i sent had had an issue that slipped my mind, second was ok, maybe a hum at worst, so i was gonna take it back at the next fest, but i did offer him what i got from the guy i bought it from and it was accepted only to send the third one out and have it damaged as the transformer came loose during shipping. i must have used a mile of bubble wrap on the last amp as the outer case/cover/shell was one of the best in the four that i owned at the time. i wonder what ever happened....... :-s :?

Re: Need low-budget power amp for AL-III Plus's

Old thread, but thought I'd drop a note anyway. The money order was sent, but I assume it was lost due to the tropical storm that occurred right at that time in Angelo's neck of the woods. So, yes, I canceled it after 10 days, and subsequently didget cold feet due to learning Mercury was retrograde (astrology buffs will know this is a very bad time for making large purchases, anything to do with electronics, as well as transactions.) I'm glad I followed my intuition, as I see the amps and shipping ran into trouble; though I'm sorry to see that Angelo. :(

My life has been super busy with my family, but I'm once again putting my attention on these currently silent speakers... once Mercury goes direct again that is, as it's again retrograde!

Peace out!

Re: Need low-budget power amp for AL-III Plus's

Seriously? Running your life according to where the stars align? I've never, ever understood that.

However, I check my front porch for leaves and let how many are there as I leave in the morning decide my day! Too many yellow ones and you must watch yourself that day! Green ones are good. Dead ones mean nothing I can determine. If I'm not going anywhere on a given day, then I consult the back deck.

This has proven to much more of a prediction of the day for me. Maybe because it's closer and more involved in my day or something....

Palm reading never worked for me. I never could get anything out of it. Something to do with not hearing what was said as I couldn't get past the ladies heaving breasts.

Try the leaves and see if it doesn't tell you more!

Re: Need low-budget power amp for AL-III Plus's

Markie, How many times have I told you that leaf thing is no good. I get up in the morning and go outside if there is a shit load of night crawlers in my yard it is a bad day to purchase anything electronic. In which case I will say fuck It I am going fishing.

Re: Need low-budget power amp for AL-III Plus's

Harry,

Clearly, you're out of sync with the world! How can you use a lowly life form like a worm to predict your electronics? Especially when you live where it's frozen for at least half the year. You're violating the electrons first principle of motion if you go half a year without buying more of them to replentish motion. (Please remember to buy at least one amp per year as they have many more of them stored away in them waiting for future use!)

You must turn to something much more reliable to make the world work efficiently and keep the atoms in proper motion. If you aren't capable of believing in the way intended for mankind, the leaves of life, then please turn to the next best even if it's a more modern way.

You must in the morning (do not dare cheat and check in the evening, it'll throw the rotation of the earth off slightly but critically) check for any tire stems that are exactly at the bottom. If ANY of them are exactly and precisely in the down direction, then you MUST SELL electronics that day! Please heed this....it has extreme cosmic consequences.

The ONLY reliable alternate known to the stem of life is to consult the leaves!

Please, please don't feed the worms to the fish on any day when you see a cat licking its left front paw before you close the door on your way out (unless your wearing sandles), it creates very bad karma for all left handed people that day unless you cut your hair as short as FrankieD did before the end of that same day!

Re: Need low-budget power amp for AL-III Plus's

Hi Rabbit!

Hey guys, besides having 20 years as a software architect previously, I'm also an intuitive energy healer. I get it's not your bag, but yes, I use ALL my senses as I navigate the world. Besides clairvoyance, I use "tools" such as astrology, symbology, and YES, even signs in nature. Peace!

On another note, thought I'd give a post about what I've been up to. Not sure if I mentioned it before, but we wound up wiring/installing our entertainment room ourselves and it turned out fantastic! We'll be running the wire into the living room for the AL III's next (which are on Zone 2 of the receiver.) I've done a lot of learning over the past couple of days on matching amps to speakers, as well as bi-amping and bridging. While I like the idea of bi-amping, I want to keep the equipment in our locked cabinet (out of our toddler's reach), which I have installed thermometer driven fans into. That leaves me room for 1 amp no more than 8" h x 17" w, and 1 no more than 7" high. I also don't have a dedicated electrical circuit for the amp, which means at any given time it, the receiver, and a couple of lights may be on and it has to do OK. Our electrical box is maxed out after a lot of remodeling. So, probably looking at getting 1 amp for now <g>. I looked outside Carver amps to broaden my search. I'm currently looking for the Sunfire 300x2 of course, but also considering the M500-T, the Pro PT1800, and the Emotiva XPA-2 (500w/ch @ 4ohm). I''m figuring in $250+ shipping for servicing on the older models. Someone on another forum said the XPA-2 clipped with the AL IIIs, but only after he'd cranked it. He eventually ran 2 mono. It weighs 98 pounds, so seems like a substantial amp for the money ($590-900 depending on age), and it wouldn't likely need servicing. While I'd like "perfect", that's not happening now, so I'm willing to try any of these models for now just to get music into the central part of our house and enjoy the speakers :)
