    I've been looking for more bass for my music stuff. For music and/or movies, would a Shiva-X in a horn tuned to whatever ideal frequency be able to beat out a Mal-X in a 7.6 cu.ft box tuned to 14hz with 2,000w? How big would a horn have to be for a Shiva if it was tuned around 26hz for music...

  8. Sony
    I have come across a 2005 sony 51in model# KDF-E50A10. The problem with the set is it will not turn on. The guy only wants 50 bucks for it and I'm going to get it if it's worth fixing. Is there any ideas what may be the problem and is it worth fixing? Thanks, RandallRay
