  1. Well, the choice of speakers tends to be very subjective and personal, more so than any other piece of audio equipment. As a happy owner of a pair of VAF I-93s, I'm simply curious as to what aspects of the VAF sound that you found to be so disappointing.
  2. To the OP, these could be just what the doctor ordered: Hsu MBM-12 Mid-Bass Modules. http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/mbm-12.html
  3. Absolutely love the build and solidity of the drawer of these old-school CD players. Not like the thin flimsy junk you get these days.
  4. Perhaps ... but that's the way I love it. If only Metallica and Slayer sounded like that too.
  5. You could take it to the next level by playing some Death Metal blastbeats . But seriously, the cleanest, deepest and most impactful bass & kick drums I' be ever heard in Heavy Metal is from the Finish symphonic metal band Nightwish. Even their concert DVDs have that same killer slam. This band's recordings would have murdered my VAF I-93s quite effortlessly if I hadn't consigned bass duties to my 2 pairs of Rythmik subwoofers.
  6. I use an external crossover (24 db/octave) to separate my mains (VAF I-93, ported) with my subs (Rythmik Audio F15, sealed, set up in stereo). Crossover is set at 90 Hz. Sub EQ is via Antimode 8033. Should I plug the ports on the VAFs, or would it not matter?
  7. Sound Affairs totally screwed up my AudioControl crossover / subharmonic unit, to the point where even AudioControl USA couldn't fix it. All I asked for was a simple power supply and capacitor upgrade. All my subsequent emails to them, which were polite and completely non-accusatory, were met with evasiveness at first, folllowed by a total refusal to respond. Stay away ...
  8. There's also Rythmik Audio...very accurate and musical subs that are good value-for-money.
  9. Hello, Tried sending PM but your inbox is unable to receive new messages. Please advice when I am able to do so. Regards, RSG
  10. Hi Adrian, Check out Harrison Labs FMOD Crossovers: www.hlabs.com/products/crossovers/ I use the 50 Hz Hi-Pass units to set up my mid-bass subs. Works like a charm...
  11. Old school CD players are also great transports.
  12. I'm guessing products from Japan would be off your list too.
  13. Lars probably stole it. He's been trying to stop Kirk from playing solos since the Black album :lol:
