  3.  === lots of orange peel there. You have several hours of wet sanding ahead - love the look though — That's a feature. Think shark's skin or golf balls. The bumps keep the sound waves from sticking to the surface - they flow out with greater speed and authority.

    I agree with all of this, in a covered area it should be good, you could always put another cover over it when it not being used to keep dampness off of it. TV's today are pretty much disposable, if you don't go to big or silly with fancy features there not that expensive. Just looked some up for fun, and this is BB, you can find better prices than this. 50" 4K smart tv $300 Vizio 50" 4K smart tv $300 LG 43" 4K smart tv $279 Samsung 40" smart 1080P $190 Vizeo

  6. He$$ no. It’s has never worked anywhere in the world, so what makes you think it would work here in the USA My insurance payments went from 400 a year for a family of 5 and now it’s 17,000 a year. Yes that’s. 17K and only 1/10t the benefits. Dollar for dollar Klipsch has no equals Name one other speaker company that can build a speaker and keep working like new after 45 plus years of service. Answer NO ONE !!!!!!
  7. I had one in a truck, ran great and had good power, loved that little truck.
  8. Slumming, worse than that, I have been living in a ditch compared to those prices.
  9. What’s the price? Need to check my trust fund. Lol Dollar for dollar Klipsch has no equals Name one other speaker company that can build a speaker and keep working like new after 45 plus years of service. Answer NO ONE !!!!!!
  10. We have plenty of those here, but they are small, I still avoid them. Scream like a girl, never did that yet but I'm right there with you, well kind of I will be ahead of you running if it is big and hairy spider. Nothing bothers me but spiders and it's the big ones I have a problem with. When cutting grass I get the tiny ones but with long legs on me from trees, I get them off quickly but they don't bother me much. Had a strange on on me a while back, much smaller than a fly and florescent green, I could feel it on my arm and it felt like an ant walking it was so small.
  11. Today

  14. Man, quite possibly better than mine so... You will be happily ecstatic... as you know .. .thanks
  15. the 280f is almost identical to the 8000f, as far as I am aware most of the parts are identical, the woofers are for sure. about the only real difference acoustically speaking is that the tweeter is vented on the 8000f which is supposed to smooth out the overlap area where the crossover point is. otherwise it's mostly cosmetic. Any significant and noticeable differences when a/b'ing them would probably be due to break-in time, room layout, equipment, or whatever.
  16. How's it wired in? Crossover output to the outsides and driver to one side and the middle? If so, it would make a difference. If one of the outsides isn't connected to anything then the specific 30 ohm value is unimportant except for the knob or whatever lining up with markings on a label. Even if it was the first possibility, you could go with something with a lower value and make up the difference with a fixed resistor wired between the one outside terminal and the wires from the crossover and driver. You just wouldn't have full range of adjustment but everything else would be right.
  17. Yes man, glad you're back period, Like you know,they be ashowing... Listening to Guess who...10 lp Cool
  18. After setting up a set of tp-link Powerline AV 2000 adapters I started to get noticeable crackling sound from the Promedia 2.1 BT speakers. The speakers are powered through the same outlet as the Powerline adapter for a PC. There are no other close power outlets where to connect the speakers to reduce the interference. The static noise is still audible when the speaker volume is set to minimum and the audio cable not connected to the PC. Any suggestions to eliminate the interference?
  19. I just brought record cleaner, antistatic cloth, record cleaning brush. All I need now is a player...
  20. good news . i just received some info on the pots . yes they are in fact potentiometers . they are a 30 ohm 2 watt linear pot . not L-pads or t-pads or rheostats or anything else . I stress this because I've been told all sorts of things . honeywell bought out clarostat many years ago . they have documentation of the original clarostat stock . the value listed above came directly from honeywell . now the problem is i can't find a 30 ohm 2 watt linear pot anywhere and honeywell doesn't have a direct replacement . however , they are able to make these pots from the parts they have on the shelf . i don't know what is involved in all that but I'm getting more info on that tomorrow ( hopefully ). anybody else need pots ? if there is enough need maybe i'll get an order put together . so i have to take a step back . above i was sure L-pads were the way to go but after this info i'm not so sure . i don't claim to be a guru with this kind of stuff , but as i continue to reason on all this , jack frazier did it this way for some reason . i don't know his reason , but it had to be based on something . if L-pads were the better way to go then wouldn't he have done that ? but he didn't . he used pots . so the search continues ... i haven't shut the door on using L-pads . but if i can get my hands on a direct replacement pot then that's what ill do.
  21. In addition to the above, I just thought of something else that might help... if the amp you get has an ARC or eARC HDMI connection, and your TV also has one, then switching the amp on shouldn't be an issue at all. They will effectively be synced together, and switching the one on and off, should switch the other on and off.
  22. Not condensing squat here... SO well deserved! Full Moon Fever is the debut solo studio album by Tom Petty, released on April 24, 1989, by MCA Records. It features contributions from members of his band the Heartbreakers, notably Mike Campbell, as well as Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison (who died prior to its release), and George Harrison, Petty's bandmates in the Traveling Wilburys.[1][2] The record shows Petty exploring his musical roots with nods to his influences.[3] The songwriting is mainly collaborations between Petty and Lynne, who was also a producer on the album. The album became a commercial and critical success peaking at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified 5× platinum in the United States and 6× platinum in Canada.
  23. I might not be in a position to answer your question directly, especially if by "amp" you are planning on buying just an amp and not a receiver (AVR). I haven't used power amps since my original and over the top powerful home theater from about 15 years ago, so i can't advise you on the functionality of just an amp with a TV in this day and age. However, if you are considering purchasing an AVR (receiver), then this is easily solved in a number of ways. However, when going with an AVR setup, I would recommend rather making the receiver the central control point. Most decent receivers from the well known brands (Yamaha, Denon, Marantz etc) should have no trouble controlling the basic functions of your TV. And if you connect your TV to your receiver via an ARC or eARC enabled HDMI connection, your TV and receiver will turn on and off together with one action, and volume will be control via your receiver remote. I also think you'll get a better experience overall making your receiver the central control point rather than your TV. Now if you really want to control all your devices from just one remote and pack all your other remotes away permanently, one of the best investments I've made in my home theater to date is investing in the not-so-cheap Logitech Harmony Elite system. This one universal remote has literally replaced 7 remotes I was previously relying on to control everything that is connected to my home theater system. After setting the remote up to control everything, I haven't needed to take out any of the original remotes again. It handles everything from complex setups on my Yamaha A2070 receiver, Smart TV, TV Apps, Blue-Ray player, Sat TV Box, Amazon Fire Stick, Smart Lights etc... and all the actions can be triggered by my Google Home Assistant (or Alexa), so your system can be voice activated as well. Best investment ever for me! 🙂 ...but if your goal is just a small amp and TV, then I'm sure someone on the forum will advise you on this soon... 🙂
  24. I'm a subscriber and read the review. Although the subjective comments about the speaker were positive, the measurements were a bit disappointing. And I was a bit dismayed that in the Manufacturer's Comments section in the issue, Klipsch chose to simply copy/paste text from their brochure. ..Very strange. Typically, you'll find comments from an engineer speaking to measurement anomalies or functional issues, etc.. I would have expected some comments from Roy. Their review of the Heresy III was more positive, but lacked any measurements.
  25. when i was 16, i don’t remember why; but, i was driving my Dad’s car and left a dead rattler in the trunk. He found it when he went to get his golf clubs out of the trunk. I remember him calmly telling me, “by the way, you can never drive my car again." When i was about 13 or so, we went rattle snake hunting -- caught one too. Brought it home (alive) and called the hospital because we (best friend and me) wanted to sell the venom to the hospital. Whoever was on the phone at the hospital said that they get their anti-venom from a laboratory. So, i ask for the telephone number of the lab. Dad got stung by a scorpion that was in our garage. Five minutes later, his thumb had doubled in size.
