    • I live in an incredibly liberal area ... or should I say tolerant area?  anyway, the city disabled the section of the website where you could see which area of the city has infections. they claim that this knowledge may cause discrimination against the people that live in those hot spots. the reason I mockingly pointed out that this area is liberal/tolerant is that there sure seems to be a massive distrust of the people that live here. while not an exact science, I would have thought that tolerant people would be guided by a more giving the benefit of the doubt mindset and less likely to automatically prepare a defense (disabling part of the website) against events (potential discrimination) that haven't even happened. Maybe thinking so little of people is part of tolerance? 
    • I have not stuffed my cabinets yet. On the first one I used a dynamat type marerial and a soundproof material. On the 2nd one I have only placed a few squares of the soundproof material, and in the one that is in the shop the cabinet is being made thicker, and will be a rectangle the same size as the horn when viewed from the front. This will be the center channel, and will be on top of my 90" wide AV rack. The center will be laying like most people have their k402s...not like my left and right which are vertical. I am going to be trying some sheep wool on the center channel, and also I am going to try some bracing inside all of the cabinets.  Now on the first one the bass is about 5db more than on the one with only a few pieces of soundproof material inside. We will see how the center is since it will be 9" shorter, but also a full rectangle... the left and right have angled sides going from 24" to 12".   How high are your stands? I am thinking of making some stands to bring the left and right channels up to the the height of the center channel, o4 angling th3m (not sure if I can angle enough without becoming unstable). I will be trying stands that will match the height of the center channel on the AV rack. I am doing this because my left and right channels are too low with our current seating, and most likely our new seating will be at least the height we are currently using. I am also curious how raising the speakers will effect the bass...right now, the bottom of the horn is 9" off the floor, and the speakers are within 2' of the rear wall, and side walls (corners).   Even though mine are not tuned completely yet due to us stopping when we had problems with consistent measurements, and my changing of the gain measurements on the amps (to try and get the levels were we wanted them). Now I have Icepower amp modules with no gain controls and we are ready to proceed when Chris is ready. I think he is waiting until we get the center completed so we can do them all at once...which is fine with me. I have to say that last night I listened to some master recordings on Tidal and I was very impressed as to how good they sound, and cannot even imagine how much more revealing they will be once we haventhem fully tuned.   Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk          
    • it is, and a little more "used" now... he owes 4k on it though
    • Up here they just started providing more detailed information about geographic locations within a city where Covid outbreaks occur.   They are designating distinct neighbourhoods within cities as Covid hotspots.   There is no mistaking the results as biased.   Demographics and attitudes are really making or breaking it.   There is an exodus from the city to the country right now.   The real estate market up here has NEVER been hotter.   The difference between genius and stupidity is genius has it’s limits.  
    • Just say no! Tell them to drink it!   Yum Bulldozer lobster sandwich.
    • CECAA850, Where can I find drawings for those? Never mind, I found them!
