Recommended Posts

Hey guys my Bose 601's were ok until I started pumping them now they start smelling/burning and distortion all that kind of stuff they dont pump hard enough for me. What are some good speaker reccomendations for me within a reasonable price range probably the same price range my Bose is in. Also how much could I get for a pair of Bose 601's these days.

Thanks

Klipsch F3's with a ksw-12 would definitely do the job nicely.

as far as selling your Bose, I don't know what you did to them but you won't get much if they freaking burn.

Sounds good and these will pump hard right? I will not be disapointed will I? Please Note that I like to listen to music at extreme levels. Thanks for the reply though buddy :)

The setup I mentioned will definitely kick some ass. That sub produces some amazing bass.

So then buy the biggest, cheapest pieces of **** you can find. Then replace them every time you're trying to make yourself deaf and blow your speakers. It'll be cheaper.

Are you kidding? You're trying to "listen" to load music with that? For your "special" needs, you'd need the biggest, most powerful amp you can find to pair with your awesome speakers.

Are you totaly out of your mind man?

I said Bose is not loud enough for me. The quality is ****ing amazing man, Bose imo are the best quality. I still have got a OLD Lifestyle 5 or 10 system from about 10-15 years ago and it kicks just about every sound systems ass I have heard today.

I dont like buying cheap **** ok. I like to get good quality equiptment then it will last plus if I buy something good quality it can be replaced anytime good respectible compnaies has kick ass RMA warranty services etc. Like with my Bose I can replace them right now if I blew them, they are not even blown now and no where near it yet but they have burnt a little off the voice coil and i could probabbly replace them now if I wanted. Also the Onkyo TXSR601 kicks ass man 150watt x 7 (or 6 I forgot)

Not even close.

You're trying to pump too much "bad" wattage into those speakers. If the Onkyo actually had the power output you think it does, you'd most likely have a better chance at achieving the insane volume you want while keeping your speakers in one piece.

Possibly. If you're trying to pump decent wattage to your speakers and you're blowing speakers, the amp is the first place I would look. Remember, just because a speaker is rated for 100 watts doesn't mean that ANY 100 wats or less is good for them. That rating is for "clean" power. You'd be much better off with a higher rated receiver or amp because it would always have power in reserve to power the speakers. You'll never ever hear 100 watts, as you'd go deaf. The 100 watts is also not a constant, it's a peak rating. You need a receiver capable of delivering more than the speaker rating with enough left in reserve .

Think of like a garden hose; a tap connected to your house can deliver enough water to deliver a steady stream through that little green hose, but what if you ask for bursts of much more water? Answer; it can't handle it. If you hook that hose up to a fire hydrant, you'd still get the steady stream of water, but with a lot a power behind the stream for those times when more power is called for. Right now it sounds like there's nothing left for your system to deliver power-wise, so it sends almost everything it's got to accomodate your demand, and that "raw" signal is tearing apart your speakers.

Hmm yes thanks Joel it sounds like that is whats happening to me as my onkyo is 85watts or whatever it is and my speakers are 185watts (thats from the tech spec section of users manual) So then what amp would be good?

Your speakers have no watts, only a limit of power handling which peaks at 185 watts in your case. This means your speakers can handle a short period od 185 watts before blowing.

You need an amp with more juice, to provide clean power to your speakers. Go do listening tests with some decently powered amps.
