    Has sir received something from the cylindrical family?
    Oh! suit you sir.
    Does she like it sir? :smashin:

    How did you get hold of one of those in the UK - or are you the new and improved owner?

    I guess the postie gave up on the letterbox...

    Ha! Wait till you unpack it, you might hate him even more! 'Do Not Drop!' that's like a red rag to a bull for a parcelforce employee!

    I bought a load of gear from this guy on ebay, you would not believe how well packaged they were! 4 hours he spent doing it. Covered ther boxes in 'fragile' and 'do not drop' stickers. The result:
    1x mid/bass driver magnet snapped off its mountings
    1x smashed plug on AV reciever
    1x smashed AV reciever remote

    The magnet was the most impressive as these are not exactly loosely attached. Grrr!!!

    Arghh why is your AV reciever balanced on its side!!
    Probably doesn't make the slightest difference to the sound but it's upsetting me none the less!

    It won't fit under the TV any more - I put the centre there so I could let more light into the room :)

    I detect a slight flaw in your current positioning.

    There's no kettle lead and I'm working. It'll have to wait until Sunday...:(

    or maybe tonight :D

    It's also too big (diameter) to go where I had intended to put it.

    Thats the biggst flipping sub I've ever seen. Can you post the spec and price of it so that I can be further astounded?

    Also, about your reciever be careful as althouth technically they havnt got any moving parts and therefore shouldnt suffer if mounted on the side, they are designed to radiate heat properly when placed flat. Putting it on it's side may cause it or components within it to overheat.

    Good luck with your sub. I'd hate to be a neighbour, no, scratch that, live within 1/2 mile of you.

    You see I knew I should have bought it, I have a whole bag full of kettle leads.

    Why don't you lay it on its side....by the sofa and rest your feet on it....:D

    I knew it was 16" diameter but... it won't fit behind the sofa that's for sure!
    It'll either have to go besides the sofa (who need floor lamps anyway?) or just behind the TV to the left.

    Specs:
    • 320 watt RMS BASH amplifier
    • 25 Hz extension quasi-anechoic
    • +/- 3 dB 25 Hz-100 Hz
    • 32.5" tall, 16" in diameter
    • and about 26kg

    p.s. The receiver is positioned so the (what's the word, the big magnet thing?, coil?) is at the top. There are some ventilation slots. The air from the sub will keep it cool :)

    So turn it and set it to 5. Watched the same scene again!

    :eek: :eek: :eek: where's the "fudge me" smiley?!!

    That's the runt of the family as it's only 31" tall. :D

    Mine is the same diameter but an extra 8" taller and that is dwarfed by Nimby's which is 46" tall

    @Cannondale: if a few people were interested I have a friend in the USA who might be able to organize something. Wouldn't necessarily be "cheap" but you'd have one :)

    Hope you enjoy the Sub, I'm sure you'll never look back and certainly stopped my Upgraditus.

    How the hell have you managed to get it so near to your TV without it turing the picture into a Huge Magnet induced Rainbow. Mine had to be at least 2m away to stop the it buggering it up

    Dig out all your old films, sit back and enjoy

    Seems to be no signs of a rainbow :)

    It has passed the GF test "oh the cat might sit on it & look out the window.." :D

    Sounds great. Watched "Kiss of the Dragon" Jet Li- not the best film but you feel those kicks & punches :)

    Oh yes :rotfl: :D
