(now that I'm packing and shipping them all myself).
Thanks for your interest!
> The One.3 has a high pass filter for the speakers, but not a low pass for the sub, right? Correct!To activate the high-pass, a second set of caps need to be installed. I will do this for you if you want -- free with your order (now that I'm packing and shipping them all myself). If you want a "high-end" 0.1uF cap, send it to me to install (or install yourself). There are empty solder holes and a jumper for the 2nd set of input jumpers.
I created an upgrade manual for users who want to upgrade their ONE.2 to ONE.3 (one customer blew up his ONE.2). I sell the ONE.3 replacement boards (2 pcs with wire harnesses) for $200 separately. Email me at seth at virtueaudio.com and I'll reply with it. Got lots of pics on the inside and goes through wiring, etc.Seth
That's awesome, thanks.I'll discuss it with my girlfriend tonight and then hopefully I'll be a proud owner or a Virtue amp!
Aloha Megabigeye... Just curious. What type of speakers will you be using?Hope you get permission. I use to own some very nice sapphires XL speakers from ACI. They were very nice speakers. But they were just too big and I felt that I should sell them and buy something new when I got my house built in Hawaii. So I sold em for around 800 bucks. Probably paid close to 1K for them. But, now I am using a pair of infinity P163's I got off Amazon shipped for 300 bucks. I can really tell the build of infinity is not up to pare as the old RS-3.1 I have used in the past. Probably the Xovers are crap as well. But what do you expect for 300 dollar speakers? Funny the person that bought my sapphires told me I was a fool for selling them and he said he would never have sold them. I guess he was satisfied with the sound. Anyway..... I guess my next journey is finding better speakers.
Interesting that you are going from a king-rex T2020 chip 20 watt to a tk250.
I came from a trends using a T2024 old school 9 watts. I still have my old sonic impact I bought from target for 20 bucks. The T-amp that started it all. What a crazy path. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the sound of the three and it will be interesting to hear your listening impressions. Just be careful I guess, those 3" drivers are 30w max. Probably wouldn't want to push em too hard. Interesting speakers too. I remember whizzer cones! One day the infinity's will become the new deck speakers. Just like ACI, they no longer are in business. Kinda sad as they not only made good speakers but subs as well. Your welcome, enjoy the ride.
I didn't understand the JB3s until I heard them. Friggin amazing. Much more expensive today, right?You should be in for a nice upgrade from the Dayton and Kingrex. The Dayton Tripath amp really sucks but they cleaned up their act with the TDA amps which sound pretty good.Keep us updated!Seth
No problem! You guys really piqued my interest a few years ago with the One.2 and Two.2, but were out of my budget at the time. I was always a bit disappointed when I'd go to your website and there was nothing there. I was excited to see you're back.I also find it very encouraging that you (personally!) replied to my post within minutes. I'm also considering a NAD (though, now I'm considering it less and less), but I don't think they're even on these boards.Very cool.This is potentially a dumb question, but do you think there would be a noticeable difference if I ran it with a sub but without the high pass engaged? Basically, I don't want to limit myself if I ever want to upgrade my speakers to something that doesn't require a sub.Interesting. There is somebody on here that offered to sell me their old One.2, but I have a feeling this would end up being more expensive than just getting the One.3. Also, my DIY skills are minimal.
Hello,In the old days the virue amps did have a switch inside so you can switch to a cap that will give the complete frequency range to your speakers and there was a second smaller value cap that will only give 80 hertz and higher to your speakers. And at the back there is a connector to have an interlink to you active subwoofer.The new model has just the big cap and the switch if i am right but you can order it with a 100nf cap that will give you the smaller frequency range. It is way better. The excursion of yopur speaker will be much smaller, so is the distortion. Your amp will have an easier life.Just buy the virtue with a battery, ask Seth to install the smaller caps and find a nice active subwoofer. I am using an SVS PC-12 nsd (749$) They have cheaper ones too. If you succeed in a good '' integration '' with your main speakers it can be very nice.Sincere greetings, Edward
