    Which amp for RL-i 8 D4?

    I put up some old pics in my gallery section. I built the box about a year ago now. Some members might remember it. I'll have to see if I can find the exact specs, but, I seem to recall the port was 24"

    Firefox issues.

    mine has been doing that when I use google mail. It pops up and says firefox has experienced a problem and must close. Does it a few times a day..weird. I have notices there have been like 3 automatic updates in the past few weeks...maybe they are working something out?

    Which amp for RL-i 8 D4?

    I've got 2 rl-i8's w/500 each to them and they love it....I mean, if you are careful with it, 400+ does those puppies nice.

    The Times They Are A-Changing...

    at those prices, it is still a good deal. I would not trade my rl-i8's or my rl-p12 for anything... Glad I could be a past customer, and wish I needed more so I could be a future customer..but these just won't quit!!

    RL-p for home audio?

    Looking at Partsexpress, they have a BASH500w amp for under $250. Looking at the picture, it has a left and right input. My receiver only has a single rca output for the sub. Could I use a Y adapter from the receiver to the amp, then, run each of the amps channels to each vc of the woofer? My RL-p is the D4vc.

    RL-p for home audio?

    Thanks for the input. I will do what I can on getting a higher watt amp. Thanks also for the rec. box/port sizes..I look forward to the project!

    RL-p for home audio?

    Well, I have removed all my car stereo stuff to make room for family in my ride...BUT, I cannot part with my RL-p 12..I just love it too much. I was wondering if box sizes/styles would be the same for use in the house? It is looking like I will be starting with around a 200w home audio amp. I know that is way under the RL-p, but I aint selling muh speaker... any ideas/opinions welcome

    Good idea for me at least. It brought me back to the site after missing a month or better!

    Home audio center ch. questions

    ah...true, forgot about that shielded deal. probably just be simple-er to buy a speaker. Thanks for the input.
  14. I am wanting to 'build' a center channel for my h/a system. I have a pair of CDT CL-5's 4ohm to use. I am thinking, wiring them to 8ohm and build a small cabinet for them. My question is on the crossover. Is there a xover kit, or a decent xover out there to buy, that I can mount inside the small cabinet, that can handle the 110w my Pioneer VSX puts out? Dont really know what my budget would be, but I surely dont wanna spend too much, or I'd just buy a speaker on ebay or something. I have looked at parts express, and see some 2-ways...I guess I could just use the high pass side of one of those? Or, could it be as simple as just getting some 'bass-blockers' for the cdt's and go with that?
  15. I have used hot glue in the past, and it held up good on stretched vinyl. fwiw..
