Ok, the 9090 is still on CL locally but now there is a 9090DB from Milwaukee listed too. $550 for that, what is the difference?
Dolby. Ha. Should have known. Want moar now.
Why yes, I am.
Pioneer SA-9100 and TX-9100, purchased from the original owner at their estate sale...
...Driving a Canton sub/sat setup from the 1980's
(Featured here installed in our ****ty IKEA bookcase, soon to be replaced by something mid-century)
The silver box sitting atop the books next to the left sattelite speaker is an active equalizer. It plugs into the tape monitor loop, much like the Bose 901 EQ did. Makes a fair bit of difference.
I have other stuff downstairs, just no place to use it in this tiny house. If I get rid of that massive bookcase, I may have room for speakers on stands...which will open up a world of possibility.
The EQ is part of the sub/sat system. The owner's manual (bought the system in perfect condition from the original owner) states that it "corrects low frequency output" which I expect means that it augments low end frequencies and cleans up the mid-bass hole that likely exists between the 8" bass driver and satellites.
The sattelites are interesting. They have a 4" driver with an alloy dome tweeter mounted coaxially on a bridge. The cases on all three speakers are aluminum.
I saved for a looooong time to buy an SX-750 and a set of HPM 100's when I was in HS. Gave the receiver to a friend several years ago, and AFAIK, it's still kicking. I think I've still got an old 70's Panasonic receiver kicking around in the attic. I've also still got my 80's Kyocera receiver and cassette deck.Originally Posted by adrew
I have a couple of the Ikea Expedit units in 4x2 filled up and I like them, my only regret is not getting a lighter color.
This happened during Kraftwerks Aerodynamik the other night. Suggestions?
Can I refoam these? I'd like to keep them original as my brother bought them new. They were hooked up to a monstrous Sansui that he still has.
Word of caution: I wouldn't use them until you refoam. The disintegrating foam means the cone is no longer being located effectively, which can lead to voice coil rub/shorting. Don't want to damage that.
I've always wondered.... it there possibly a collectors market for vintage car audio equipment?
