Bummer on the tax, well, it will be made up in efficiency and really loud bass! Time for you to choose the movie that you will start off with!! Some will say Transformers, I like to try others, ones like Cloverfield, Knowing (Plane Scene), Rataoullie (sp?) (beginning with shotgun), U-571 (depth charges) etc... Transformers is good though!

CLOVERFIELD has some Awesome Low Bass, I need to re-watch since I didn't have my PA-120 when I watched it the 1st time. But, another to think about viewing for Very Nice LOW Bass Thru-out is MAX PAYNE. Right from the opening scene, you'll get an idea of what your new Sub can do.

I played the games, loved them too, but I have never seen the movie!! I rented a couple of Blu's on campus today (dollar a day), Monsters vs. Aliens and Godzilla!! Can't wait to hear what Godzilla is like, I will post a review later, either tomorrow or the next!

Also, the ending of Knowing is like an earthquake, literally!

I too Just picked up GODZILLA last week & haven't watched it YET, but I am dieing to give it a whirl, prob. tomorrow after work. From the review on this site, it says the Audio track is Super LOUD & the LFE is Killer also. I'd try that one first, but if you can find it to rent, snag MAX PAYNE. You'll thank me later.

#2. It doesn't matter. You should not lose anything when running your audio cable to the plate and then to the amp. It can be a short run to the plate and longer run to the sub or vice versa. You shouldn't lose any of the LFE signal doing it this way as compared to directly running the cable from the receiver to the sub.
I will give it a shot once the sub gets here... Thanks for the advice!

My neighbors should be far enough to not be able to hear it, at least I hope lol...

HAHAHAHA I haven't had any problems yet... The neighbors are all cool and don't bother me... They are all older than I am, me being the youngest home owner in my neighborhood by far, and they always have their kids out everyday running around, not too much to worry about I hope...

I think it is, especially for some decent/very good action sequences, the way it's shot, the visuals/effects, & again the Audio is Off the charts -- If you're not 100% sure, spend $5 & rent it on bluray. But I've talked to a few people who own this & Love the movie & Audio (Aramis109' I believe has it if you want to PM him on it)

Well, if you have some seperation between houses & good neighbors/nice neighborhood, than I guess YOU know if things will be fine for a short time til' you get home from past deliveries. That's a good thing if you can find a nice area like that. Unless it starts Raining while you're at work...(!!)

I will definitely have to check this movie out, its got a decent review, PQ and AQ good. Movies made after games tend not to be that good though, but that does not stop me!

Nice! Congrats Zippo!

I love my PC12-PLUS and it really goes well the 20-39 PC Plus (which is basically the previous generation of the PC12-PLUS).

The one thing I can't promise you is that it will be your last sub! You might want to have two or ultimately four of them!

I remember when mine was dropped off and my wife signed for it. She actually had the idea that once she signed for it, she was going to take care if it and bring it into the house, so she had the UPS guy placed it by the door. I remember her phone call to this day "what the hell did you get that's so heavy, that I can't even begin to slide the box without generating a hernia?" Ah.....good memories!
