    • Yes, there is a better driver, the A-55G.  But, look into the plastic back plate on the K-55M.  It could be loose as Mookie said in his post above.  Usually that shows up as a buzz, but could possibly just cause distortion.  
    • That's possible.  It wasn't like there's some blatant issue.  You'd never notice it 99.9% of the time.

    • Coytee,  You haven't started to glow from the time you used it did you?     Glad they made good.
    • Is there a similar cabinet to the right of the hearth?
    • Thanks for the info. I thought/perceived it as being very obvious. It just seems like everything coming into focus.   Bruce
    • Black Sabbath going prog.    
    • I read what you did on your web site.  I thought it looked doable if done carefully.   I guess I'm partially asking whether the diaphragms are a part that wears out.     Is there a complete driver that is an upgrade on a LaScala?
    • There is a post with all donors and their corresponding membership classification in this section. Also, most if not all of us that attended the four day work week are still in recovery mode from the ninety plus degree temperatures at the Watermelon Festival and the four day work weekend at the museum. The folks that were there working can attest to the sweltering heat which greatly affected everyone.    There is also a post detailing the work that was scheduled to be done during the Volunteer Work Week.  For the most part, all goals were met or exceeded prior to and during that four day work weekend.    Steam pipes contributing to foooding of basement sealed    Previous non operational central air unit removed from outside of building   Gutters repaired/painted in rear section of museum. Extensions put on downspouts to direct water away from building.    Low section in driveway partially filled to redirect water away from stairwell    Old awning over pre existing air conditioning removed    New aluminum awning purchased installed the length of the building, in the north side of the building covering the stairwell.    Second window air conditioning unit purchased and installed   Bathroom in museum repaired and fully operational   New sump pump purchased and installed   60 yards of fill soil delivered, tractor rented, 30 yards spread to improve grade around building before rain set in   Basement partially cleaned out and trash hauled off.    Industrial shelving moved into basement    All of this plus more was accomplished. As stated before a huge shout out to @ssh, @guywithwine, @hogwylde09, @pappyIII, @Ole Dollar, @kharmondds, @JRH, @dtel and @Chief bonehead for all the help.    @guywithwine and @Ole Dollar singlehandedly took care of the Watermelon Festival Booth, with @JRH assisting with set up and pick up each day.    To the rest of you, y'all rocked that four day work weekend.    Pics to follow.    In addition, there is an telephonic Executive Committee meeting two to three times a month to determine the direction the Museum is heading. These meeting generally consist of Jim Hunter, Curator/president, Kevin Harmon, Vice President, myself, Secretary, Stacey Atchison, Treasurer/CPA, Seti, Board Member, Richard Groves and Travis Williamson, legal counsel. These meeting generally last close to two hours. Additionally, our Board of Directors meet several times a year with our next Board Meeting scheduled for October.    I can assure you this noble effort has direction. Perks for Founding Members are finally being processed, new membership classes are being established, our website is nearly populated, grants have been applied for, social media outlets are being utilized, we are in the early stages of establishing a building fund, our Treasurer/CPA is in the preliminary stages of preparing our 990 return for the IRS.             
    • The back plate on the K-55M has been known to get loose and vibrate. This can sound like distortion at times. A little silicone caulk will hold it in place. Quick and easy fix (IF that is the problem). Worth a try.
