    I'm grateful to all of you for taking the time to contribute to this thread. Still, unfortunately, I am unable to understand or visualize the suggestions sufficiently to enable us to do this installation ourselves. The subs are arriving today, so in the absence of a good understanding of how to do this, we will likely be calling on a professional to do the installation.

      In your geographic area, be careful of the "professional" you get. I can think of one "professional," with whom I would never do business with again. Hopefully, you can find a Johannus tech in your area to advise you. Otherwise, I can vouch for @Don60's advice, and I have done business with him and trust him.

    myorgan: We're having a Johannus technician do the installation.

      I've purchased Allens from AL, NY, WI, NC, and AZ. Having so many Allens, I have discovered the Allen technician involved was a crapshoot. Some were installed well, while others were just connected and the tech left. Hopefully your Johannus technician is competent and the end result will be good for you for years to come!

    Hello, All-

    We were fortunate to have found an experienced Johannus Technician who has installed our two Walker B-1000 subwoofers. Contrary to previous assertions/recommendations in this thread, he bypassed the Johannus internal amp and connected directly from the pre-amp to the subwoofer amp. He was able to voice all the stops from the channel one output individually, and the result is excellent.

    (Beware of know-it-all 'experts' on internet forums.)

      Honestly, I'm offended by the italicized tag on your post. I don't agree that we're "know-it-all's." Don60 is actually an expert and gave you excellent advice. The Johannus Tech did exactly what he recommended. The problem is you didn't understand it.

      Current: Allen 225 RTC, W. Bell reed organ, Lowrey TGS, Singer upright grand
      Former: Yamaha E3R

        Agreed. Someone needed to point this out.

      Warning: L-O-N-G post! I've just re-read the thread, and I'll make some observations here:
      1. It is not uncommon for people to join the Forum to ask questions on one project, then leave us forever after getting the free advice.?
      2. It is also not uncommon for people who join the Forum to bite the hand that feeds them. I've seen it several times over the decades.?
      3. It is not uncommon for a new member to not have the knowledge, or not know they don't have the knowledge necessary to either follow the directions given, or make a quality decision based on the information provided.? I'm dealing with that issue with one of my SAMs, but at least I know what I don't know and can ask more questions to be educated and to make the right decision.
      4. It is not uncommon for "techs" to leave the Forum after receiving unflattering comments when taking the time to provide endless advice–even though the playing field changed.?
      5. Civility is sorely lacking in our society, and I do hope it will not be sacrificed on the Forum.?
      We are quite fortunate to have such a wealth of experienced people here on the Forum, and we're losing them gradually.
      • The author of "The Mother List" of organs and organ tech, Jan Giradot is no longer with us (RIP). Much history of older tube and transistor organs was lost with his death.?
      • One of our techs with expertise on Baldwin and Rodgers organs, Toodles (Charlie Strack) is also no longer with us (RIP).?
      We need to cherish those we have available and be respectful of their expertise and willingness to assist others (myself included) when they have issues with their instruments.

      Ophicleide, I hope you enjoy having the "rumble" with your new sub-woofers. Nothing can beat the experience of a good sub when done right. I know when mine is right because my wife sits crosslegged on the floor just to experience it! BTW, I purchased one of them from none other than don60, and it's performed like a champ since.

      don60, Please do not let this experience dissuade you from assisting others in the future with Johannus & Allen organs. I, for one, have appreciated your advice for me and others on the Forum.

      I apologize for making such a long post, but I know how much the Forum means to me. Maybe it's just because I went through a contentious job change the last couple of weeks. Either way, we need to be respectful of each other's time on the Forum.

      Michael leaves his soapbox and braces for the tomatoes!
      Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:

      • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)

        No tomatoes from me, I agree completely. I'll publicly praise don60 for his tremendous help with my Britson/Johannus, without which it would still be unplayable.

      Thanks for the kind words. I have spent several years learning about Johannus products, usually the hard way, and I still have more to learn!

        OMG! Some of you girls certainly have your panties in a bunch! LOL ?
