  1. I've got one of these and think it's great. Simple piece of kit with plenty of flexibility to integrate into your system, and the app works well. Highly recommend for the price point.
  2. Hi Steve, Was just drooling over that JL sub of yours and noticed I'm just up the road from you (in Merricks North). Good to have another pro on site!
  3. I'd love to take these if still available. Cheers
  4. I'll go backup if the above falls through. Cheers
  5. That's one classy unit. Great pics. Edit: This thing is over 20 years old?! What a beaut!
  6. Hi noddy, Just wondering if this sale went through?
  7. Ummed and ahhed and missed it. Backup if it falls through. Cheers
  8. Sold elsewhere. No offers close to asking price.
  9. It makes me a bit sick to say but looks like this will be a $600 lesson. 10 output resistors blown, plus some drive transistors, I'm told. The damage is on the channel which I had unplugged from the speaker but still connected to the amp (d'oh). Most likely the loose plugs touched and shorted, right? Assuming this amp / speaker pairing is sound and I can get both units back to good health, I'd ideally stick with this setup for a few years to come. Can anyone see any reason I wouldn't go ahead with this repair job? (...besides 'You're an idiot. Stick to a Bose soundbar you can't destroy.')
  10. Thanks for the input. Technician suggests the pairing is like running a Formula 1 engine on small wheels. I'm not sure whether he's familiar with the 401c - with it being rather power hungry for the size. Waiting to hear back from Atilla, who I'll also ask about the pairing and recommendation for amp choice. Seems like a good match by everything I read. My main concern is damage to either device, which seems to be the technicians suggestion.
  11. Hi all, I recently purchase a pair of Gale 401C's and am a little unsure of what I should be using to drive them. I read a lot about power. The original specs suggest at least 60WPC, and I read of people using 200+. Everything I read states that more power is the way to use these speakers. I was also told recently that stable current is perhaps more important than the power rating. I'm not sure how to utilise this comment - do amps have a 'current stability' rating? I currently have a Dussun T6 (100wpc into 8, integrated) and recently bought a Classé 15 (175wpc, power amp) purely to power these speakers. I blew the Classé (d'oh) and the repair technician is suggesting the amp is too big for the speakers. Any thoughts on a good combo for these Gales? Is the Classé 15 overkill, or otherwise unsuitable? Would the Dussun do the job? Some other recommendations? Keen to do this right. Cheers
