Dougs system is together!

My system is finally all together and working beautifully! Direct TV came on Monday, and found a bad cable was causing my hum problem, and replaced it. I got the crossovers for my speakers back from Ben over on Club Polk, after he did a upgrade, and installed them yesterday morning. Then I replaced the Polk SDA 2A's with the newly redone SDA 2B's in the main position. I was finally able to listen to the system the way it was intended to be, and I am impressed! \:D/ It will take 200-300 hours for the crossovers to completely burn in, but right now the sound is beautiful. The bass is so much better now. With the 2A's I ran +3db on bass, but with the 2B's I can run it flat. No Sub needed in stereo! The 2A speakers were moved to the rear position, and I have a set of Polk Monitor 10A's in the surround position. When listening to SACD's and HT the sound is wonderful. I'm happier than a pig in shit! :lol:
So here is a breakdown on my system.
Sunfire TG IV Pre/Pro
Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature 405X5 Mains, center, and rears
Carver TFM-45 sides
Direct TV HD DVR
Oppo 83SE
Sony 300 Disk player
Carver PST-24 Dual Cassette Player
Polk Audio SDA 2Btl mains
Polk Audio CSi A6 center
Polk Audio Monitor 10A sides
Polk Audio SDA 2A rears.
Polk Audio DSW MicroPro 1000 Sub
My smile is this big!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Good job on the crossovers.

Looking good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good judgment comes from experience,but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

I am envious. It looks GREAT and I hope sounds better.
The only problem I see, is the small TV. I have a 55' in my bedroom. :-"

I am paying attention to all guys like you, and someday will post here a set up like yours.

Good job. Many assholes just buy a box set and get crap for their money. Elgrau explains it on my blog.

Invite me over.

Any time Bill, but Ottawa Canada is a long way from SC.

But let me think about it, I'm driving down to CF10 in NC.
