Nice! How many watts? Enough to blow eardrums out?

[#] Mon Aug 25 2003 20:24:24 EDT from 2Dog @ Uncensored

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

20 watts per, min., max. draw 65 watts. pretty decent for a desktop. how shall I say... THEY ROCK!

Oh, and the 65 watts max is them as a pair. Still they are more than sufficiently loud. Great sound quality.

Excellent score 2Dog... I'm hoping HK puts out some 5.1 channel speakers for the digital audio out on the G5's.

When you said HK I immediately thought of Heckler and Koch. I started thinking of a very large weapon making very big noise.

Eh no... my loud noises come from electromagnetically driven cones. 8')
If I head correctly HK is making the speakers for infinity car audio systems. But I'm not too sure on that one, anyone know for sure?

Eh bugger that, I just went and found it on the web, it;s true.
HK is one of my favorte sounding speakers. right next to Klipsch.

I love my Infinity speakers on my home stereo, tho I'd be willing to try out HKs or Klipschs and see how they compare.

As long as you're on the subject of speakers, which is, I think, what you guys are talking about, Does anyone know a good resource for prewired house speakers? Dan wanted and we will have wiring for speakers in four rooms of the new house. We still need to get the speakers (sounds like an Xmas present to me) but we need a pretty good deal as there are 4 rooms (that's 8 speakers) to purchase.

Might as well wire for surround sound in whatever room you'll be watching TV in. That'd be five speakers (one in each corner, and one in the center) plus a subwoofer. Even if you don't have surround right away, you might want it later.

"Score" some big savings by buying a big spool of lamp cord from your favorite hardware store. It sounds exactly the same as "monster cable" (after all, copper is copper) and costs several orders of magnitudel less.

There will be two speakers in the family room. Two in the kitchen. Two in the study and two in the master bedroom. All controlled from the stereo downstairs and all wired into the ceiling.

We'll probably end up with a subwoofer or something for the TV area (in the family room). The family room and kitchen are, essentially, in the same space.

We've probably had this conversation before, but bullshit. Whether or
not the difference is worth it to you is a personal decision, and lamp cord
will certainly get the signal from point A to B, saying that it sounds
exactly the same is simply not true. I'm not talking about audio voodoo,
either, I'm talking about measurable and significant differences of up to 3dB
at the top and bottom ends.

I was thinking more about when you turn it up to 11. It'll probably be noticable then. But most people don't have an 11 on their amp

That's a good thing, because most people's amps suck. :) You'll hear the amp
crapping out at 11 probably due to a wimpy power supply and at that point
the cables won't really matter.

And that's the point. Most people, including Girthta and Dan, cannot afford equipment high-end enough to be able to hear subtle differences in speaker cable. In other words, if you spend $1000 on an amp and speakers, you should spend about $10 on cable.

When you sink all your cash into a house, little expenses add up :)

i somehow think that you're leaving out the concept that there is shit between the lamp cord and monster cable.

i would get something that does a good impedance match, but then someone like my father shows up to visit and goes on and on about how we need monster cable. <shrugs>.

That's quite true. You can get much better cable than Monster for less than
Monster. And even on my little bookshelf system, there is an audible
difference even between the wimpy 22 AWG speaker wire that it came with and
lamp cord.

Then again, there are a lot of people who simply don't care.

22 AWG is simply too small for most speakers. But you don't need any fancy wires at all.
