I think power-crazy mods are limited to the CI lounge.

Its what happens when, after a few alterations, the cables aren't dressed tidily.

This and the other twin thread are really the threads that never die.

It is really amazing how indignant people who buy goods that they think are stolen get when the items are misrepresented. It certainly serves them right.

28 years ago I was working in a industrial complex in Torrance, Calif when - guess what - a couple of guys in a white van who were trying to sell speakers came around. I was not interested so don't remember their exact story. I think maybe their truck was loaded with an extra pair or some such story. So this type of operation is not exactly new.

The part of these stories that I don't understand from so many of the bozos who think they have been swindled is so many of them are missing a remote that seems to be needed to operate the speakers.

What is that all about?
Cheers, Jim.

JFiSC,
The remote is required by some of the systems that contain a receiver built into the subwoofer to run them. Kind of like glorified computer speakers with inputs but no controls except the remote.

As stated in an earlier post (588), i have no sympathy for the buyers of these things either.

Simon.

I was also conned into buying a Theater Logic System, Model#L8ti from the white van "sales patrol." Although it isnt what it was made out to be, I am fairly satisfied with my unit. My problem--my remote quit working. No big deal, except the only thing you can do without the remote is turn it on and off. I cant raise or lower the volume, bass, treble, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement remote, Ive had no luck finding one of the original remotes and with the system clouded in secrecy, I dont know which universal remote might work and if you have checked universal remote prices, one can have alot of money tied up in one with no guarantee that it will work. Any help on this matter would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks, Warren

  • Find the white van boys again.

  • Haggle a "good price" for another set.

  • Buy an inexpensive learning remote and teach the codes to it.

  • Sell the second set.


This may sound facetious, but as most here care not one jot for these speakers, it's likely the best answer you'll get.

I bought a TheaterLogic L6 sub-woofer at the Goodwill for $4.00 so if I have to junk it I wont feel so bad. Since I don't have the remote, is there any way to bypass the remote volume control? It is currently set at a level of 18 which is just about enough to let me know it's working. I've traced the wires from the remote sensor to the circuit board but need information on how to bypass the sensor. I appreciate any assistance you can provide.

My guess is that this thread would be about 10 pages long if the sarcastic remarks were eliminated. Those of you that feel the need to be sarcastic are as bad as those that sell the speakers in question.

Really? You think that people laughing at fools who were suckered out of their money are as bad as the criminals who prey on those fools?

The fools fall into 2 categories:
1. The gullible fool, if you have reached adulthood and not learned how to spot a scam, then you will continue to lose your money.
2. The greedy fool, he knows the story is fake, but doesn't care because he's getting a "good deal".

Then of course, there is the fool who posted to the thread asking for help, and after getting none, felt it necessary to insult the regular members of these forums. Regular members who always help out when asked with a reasonable request.

And the pages would be shorter if I didn't create such long posts.

What do you plan to bypass the remote sensor with knucklehead. Do you plan to cut it off and wire a volume pot in it's place. Yeah that should work.
