You may think this is being posted by a 17-year-old kid, but unfortunately, I am a retired 1960's boy who is by no means an audiophile.
 
I pert my unused stereo stuff on top just for the photo and only use the Cerwin Vega CV-2800 amp. The two pairs of three 15" woofers are wired in parallel to 2.66 ohms for about 1200 watts per channel stereo mode (1400 watt x 2 @ 2 ohms). Those cabinets were sadly destroyed Cerwin Vega XLS-215s ($1500 pr.) by too much Wild Turkey 101.
 
The four Skar 8" subwoofers are wired in 4-ohm pairs and driven by my M-500t at 350 WPC stereo mode. They are mounted in a hollow support column 7 feet tall by 1-foot square (7cuft) made from 2"x12" lumber and side vented with 2" x 4" aeroports.

Kentucky Bourbon 2
My TV wall sports four Sony towers (ripped in half lengthwise to fit flush into the wall) with eight 6.5" mid-rangers (2 are repurposed sub-woofers), this morning for test and grins I mounted four 8" sub-woofers tilted slighted downward. This is actually a second wall built in front of an original 4" wall with a 4' x 8' cubby hole for the TV and audio equipment. Those subs will be moved to the bottom later to make room for a new 70" TV.
Nothing special for amps here but once I finish repairing my Carver M400 it will be driving those subs - what a pain in the ass it is to work on that magic cube... This wall actually sounds pretty damn good as those four 8" subs are served well by a $90 Douk M1 Pro mini-amp and the soundbar is a TCL Alto 9+ 3.1 Dolby Atmos.

Kentucky Bourbon 3
The Bear wall - which I built to hold up a sagging roof-line contains my M-500t, Kenwood Basic C1 & Peavey XO35. The bears are to pay homage to the ones that almost ate me during a 1977 camping trip & the Oregon pint is an overpriced $40 beer glass from my son in Bend... The C1 & Peavey also controls the CV-2800 woofer amp.
The Kracken rum is just because, Buffalo Trace is hands down good bourbon, Makers Mark is overrated, and WT101 has always been a good friend who makes use of the 30-minute timer on the pizza oven.

My M500t was missing the original meter lamps, so I bought 10 of these blue LEDs ($1 each) not having the original lamp holders I just wrapped them in black tape for a friction fit. On the lamp holder circuit board, I soldered in a mini full-wave bridge rectifier and an electrolytic capacitor. The original 8 vac output becomes 11.3 vdc and drives the LEDs nicely, even the dimmer works (barely). This is a picture of them on high, I could probably find a better diffuser but that's another story.

Thanks, I'll take that in a good way - only because I spray painted those (Pyle) woofers flat black with BBQ paint and transplanted the Cerwin Vega dust caps onto those craptastic Rockvilles with rubber cement.

You can't clearly see it in the top left-hand of my original picture but I have a "brand new in box" Carver RSI-1 Remote System Interface. The box is not in good shape and is water stained, it has the warranty card but sadly no instructions or manual. I see it retailed for $299.

I have one of those!   I use it every day.  That way the dog can get in and out of the back door without it closing. LOL.

She's about 6 foot tall and only makes clear liquids, unfortunately I bought it from a place in the monkeys eyebrow and it is registered with the US government for tax purposes . Last year in mid-pandemic I was contacted by the USA to make hand sanitizer tax free.

 

Never - never, dammit never, under any circumstance give your real name to anybody - period, not even to Taco John - I  now use the name Ed (easy to spell), works well with pizza delivery too.
