Just had to say it didn’t you…

Enhance your calm, John Spartan. Or at least take some downers before firing it up.

I'm beginning to think Zimm is right, maybe I should have just sent this thing back.


Am I the only person that sees a problem with this? \:o Home Theater was plug and play before that even existed. You don't have to rebuild your sub to get it to work. Hell I'm shocked beyond belief Axiom has not insisted you accept a new model just to kill this damn forum saga. Then again, I only own the QS8 so I have consumed much less Kool-Aid.

(but I have a lot of stuff stamped Monster Cable, so I may have built up an immunity to Kool-Aid)

Apropo of nothing, my $50 Monster Cable digital coax cable (from 2001 but never used until last week) does not work at all. $50 for a cable as thick as a python and it can't relay 1|0|0|0|1. WTF. A metal coat hanger could pull that off - right John?

Charles, you're entirely correct on the wire hanger excellence (the plastic ones definitely degrade the sound quality). Furthermore, if some rusty fence wire is available it makes for a superb alternative.

Inspired by these scientific investigations of Al Magnani and Mick Loney, some time ago I undertook soaking strands of spaghetti(San Giorgio)in a hot saline solution to increase the electrical conductivity. Upon hooking up the strands in my system they worked, but I found the sound quality to be too "grainy". I then disconnected them, applied Ragu, and found this alternative application to be more satisfactory.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Suddenly, I'm envisioning $100 Monster brand coat hangers for sale at BB.

Personally, I've found using spaghetti for your speaker connects isn't a very good idea if you own a dog. If you're not a pet owner then go for it though. And remember to add some hamburger or italian sausage to the Ragu to thicken the midrange and give the woofers a meatier bottom end!
