Hah! Are you for real. Try the 5.1 ultra hooked to an X-Fi Elite Pro with the EQ tuned. I love my audio and I can't agree with you there. You sound like a dumbass. Klipsch pretty much own for spending only 400$. Once I have like 8k lying around I'll pick up a Klipsch Reference series. Whatever you are using can't compare to that if you are looking for real quality.
I just tosed the amp and picked up a receiver and a 100 dollar sub and I was good to go.
I'm stupid, so.........
what receiver and sub??
how do you hook up the receiver to your sound card???? digitally, optically???
you can still use the other speakers, correct???
I may be in the same boat soon. My sub is moaning a bit lately, its 4+ years old.
Did you get your amp back?
I just got mine repaired from eliot and its still extremely hot.
The backplate gets very very hot after a few hours of being left on. Is anyone experiencing crazy high temps from the sub? I wish I just went the custom route after all this and get a decent setup.
I did get it back, but have not hooked it up yet because of the holidays. I will go test it now.
I am quite sure I dislike a merchant posting my location on a public forum though.
The amp seems to kick on, I hear a clicking sound from the internals of the sub woofer,
But no sound out of any speakers, through both inputs, the ones in the rear of the woofer, and the input on the volume controller box. I still have sound coming out of the headphone jack on the volume control box, so it seems to me that it has to do something with powering the speakers.
I looked for burnt spots on the boards, but I couldn't find any.
Again I have read a quick fix on OC Forums, about how somebody just replaced a $2 relay, and she said she got them to function again, I was really wondering if any body had tried that fix?
though it seems like contacting Elliot is the best remedy, Ive read he does good work.
