    "Revolutionary" Product

    Did anyone else get this in their email? Just wondering if it came from here or perhaps something else I signed up for recently.


    File is a zipped html version of the email.

    It's a device basically like a Y cable that has 2 RCA plugs on one side and a mini input on the other that goes into your sound card then it has a passthrough for your normal speakers to connect into. DL the file, its easier to see than explain.

    Nothing you couldn't make yourself with a RCA Y adapter and a mini-stereo to RCA.

    i have pretty much the same setup right now (installed it last night). all you need to do is have output from your sound card going to your computer speakers, and another output going to the reciever. piece of cake!

    Yeah I know, I have a "Y" cable that has two male RCA plugs going to a mini 1/8" male. That hooks into a 20' extension mini cable to my computer. The RCAs go to an amp. Got the amp and speakers free, the tweets are shot but the 10" subs work well. So what do I get? 40 watts to dual 10" I love my MP3s!!!
    (and this is a solid amp from the 70s which most anyone knows 40 W rating then is as good as higher rated amps today)

    and what did it cost you ask??? like $6-10 for the cable

    I love telling people at school, the kind that don't know a lo about computers that I have 2 "tens" hooked to it. Another thing that helps is my HP speaker cable it has basically the same setup as the Y but two female inputs and the polk speakers that came with the computer connect to that then it has a pass through that says sub on it. so thats where the extension hooks in. Why do I need this "Brand new prototype concept device" , I DON'T!!!

    well just wondering if it was like some of the other letters that someone sent out after fishing addresses off of this board.

    EDIT:

    I forgot to mention the Amp is in my closet which is why I have the extension... I tucked the speaker and audio cables in between the carpet and wall under the wall boards so it isnt seen. Then I have an X10 module on it (its switch is fixed either on or off... so its set to on) the x10 computer software can be accessed directly by making a shortcut referenced to the program and adding the code of what module and whether you want it on or off. so then I made those and hot keyed them to F9 and F10.

    F9 - turns amp on (subs ready)
    F10 - turns amp off

    For those who don't know what im talking about:
    x10 is not just that annoying camera pop up

    X10 is a protocal that sends information over the power lines to recievers that you can plug appliances and lamps into to control remotely (IE turn on lights by remote control) its a fun and useful thing to have... because there is more to it that that depending how much money you can spend such as macros and wireless controls up to whole house automation systems

    here are some links to those interested (anyone who hasn't heard of this stuff and is a memeber of this board should love this stuff):

    www.x10.com (yeah this is that camera place... i don't like em that much but they did have a special where they sent you a kit to begin for $6)
