Are the TD712zMK2 loudspeakers capable of sustaining 100db in my listening room?
I'm interested in the Eclipse TD712zMK2 loudspeakers. My listening room measures 15’x18’x8’. I listen at about 6’ from the speakers and they have to be able to sustain 100db (C weighted) at that distance. Are the TD712zMK2 speakers capable of this in my particular listening environment?
In stereo application, 712zMK2 at 35W input resistance rating does give 98dB at 1.8m distance (103dB at 1m distance), therefore our answer is ‘unlikely’ unless the room is live rather than dead.
The above figure is not considered ‘C weight’ because the dB does not have much difference as the low and high FQ of C weight is beyond the speaker’s reproducing band.
How do I open the driver I downloaded from the Specs tab on the TD-M1 product page?

To open the driver on the Specs tab after you've downloaded it, you'll need to have WinZip installed on your computer. If you don't already have WinZip, you can download a free trial of the software here.
Eclipse TD-M1 Firmware Update Failed/Hard Reset
I tried to do the firmware update (to 1.10 from 1.0). Although the file downloaded properly the eclipse said the file was invalid. However it will not leave the mode it was in after rebooting; the white indicator is flashing and I cannot connect to it over bonjour. I am reluctant to turn off the power. Can you suggest a way to salvage this unit?
On first viewing, you are correct to try and avoid powering down. Have you tried a ‘hard reset’ on the system? This involves holding the Power, Down volume and Up volume buttons at the same time for approx. 3 - 5 secs. It is a little tricky (deliberately so, to avoid mistakenly doing it), but I find a combination of thumb of left hand and thumb + middle finger of right hand should do the job. This then resets everything and should set the indicator light back to Green.
