Default Biggly and I made some upgrades to the audio system...

Ok, we made out like bandits.


First, Biggly's toy.



Um, he got this little subwoofer thingy.




Ok, maybe that's unfair to it. He got this MASSIVE beast of a subwoofer that is so freaking huge that we have nowhere to physically fit it in the apartment. It's dimensions have to be measured in feet plus inches...

It's a Paradigm Reference Servo 15. It's a big bad mammajamma of a subwoofer, and will play down to 14hz with authority. It can sustain 17hz at 115db for christ's sake.

The only problem is we have no crossover to run it with yet because we're still waiting on mike's AVR3803 to come in the mail, so the bastard will have to wait. Not that we could really hook it up in here anyway... there's no place to put it. Anywhere where it could fit would obstruct a walkway or cause us to have to rearrange all the furniture again. It's the size of a large end-table.... seriously. The top of it is even with the top of the arms of the loveseat. It's unreasonably huge.

What a cool purchase.




Now to my upgrade...


I just bought $5000 worth of cables.


For $600.


<angelic choir and trumpets going off>


Yep, I seriously lucked out. I got several sets of Straightwire Crescendo interconnects, a pair of Crescendo biwire speaker cables (which I'm now using), and a pair of big Crescendo direct speaker cables. The last pair alone retail for close to $3000.

I got all this crap for $600. Life is good.


BTW, they sound good too.

Here's a pic of the little interconnects, by the way that's teflon braiding on there... this is a pic of the XLR version, I have the unbalanced version (RCA).


The speaker cables make the above ^ look tiny.

I wouldn't exactly try to set a glass of water on it..... nor anything other than maybe a book or something. Something that wouldn't be molecularly offended by the massive movments this thing is capable of producing. This subwoofer is recommended for use in rooms up to 60'x100'.

A jump rope? Uh, it's roughly 2-4 times the thickness of a jump rope. Plus it's not exactly flexible. They're pretty insane.

I thought that was the new set of nipple clamps with a guide rope that gremlin had gotten for Jason.

Yes, but has Mike volunteered to show you why they call him "Biggly" yet? That is when it gets scary.

Wilson audio made a subwoofer/coffee table in the past, It was called the WHOW. 350 lbs. with a 15" subwoofer. Most of the weight (as with all Wilson stuff) was in the enclosure.
