    Hey there USNRET... Your garage is SO neat compared to mine! Mine is a 2.5 car and there are only a couple of pathways that I can fit through! This is the year to get things cleaned up

    Unfortunately, this isn't a bad idea. Later on though, I'd slip some education in as to what you want. My experience has been when you see a cut of meat with those lines in it, those lines are typically tough. In a NY strip, as I understand, it means they come from the ends of the loin (or whatever they come from) and are some of the connective tissue holding it to whatever it attaches to. Irrespective of what they do, the I 100% always avoid those lines. You can rub your finger across them (perpendicular) and feel the ridge. I was at a butcher shop once and the butcher smiled, pointing at a NY strip with these lines in them....saying they were a great cut of meat. I said no thank you. (I spent 5 years cooking at a steak house in high school / college)

    The deal nearly defeated the Klipsch-mobile: It was a long drive home, glad it didn't rain.

    The condition looks decent, but there's a buy on ebay in the Tampa area that has two sets of Oak Forte II's. They are listed as Walnut, and if they were actually walnut, well, this "Alert" wouldn't be here. I've already asked him about it, and he says that he just copied someone else's post. He's got one on a bid starting at $350 and the other set, buy it now at $500. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Paired-Klipsch-Forte-100-Watt-Stereo-Speakers-w-Oiled-Walnut-Cabinetry-/131804923035?hash=item1eb02f849b:g:n8IAAOSwn9lXKyHR http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pair-Klipsch-Forte-100-Watt-Stereo-Speakers-w-Oiled-Walnut-Cabinetry-/131803207662?hash=item1eb01557ee:g:n8IAAOSwn9lXKyHR

    Correction. The La Scalas are THE best speakers I have ever owned

    Praise her and pretend it's the best you've ever had. On Mothers day this has to be your best bet.

    I assume you haven't gotten it yet. Did it come with a digital copy so you could listen while you wait? I'm about to play it myself..

    Come on guys, thats a PORK steak. Season to taste and throw that thing on the grill high heat for about 10 minutes each side. It will be delicious!

    3.1 is fine OP... rears really add spatial qualities and movement, but is NOT a necessity. You need a sub to produce low frequency effects and a center channel will really broaden the front stage and make pin point the action and dialog. 2.1 is also a really great option and if you can add a receiver that has multiple surround settings, that professing will help out spatially and with down mixing. I thought I wouod never go above 3.1 myself, but now that I have a 5.1 system I am very happy I made the change. I personally love 5.1 music also, though selection is a bit skimpy.

    I think having a speaker that is also interesting to look at from a design perspective would be very cool... la scala, either the home version or the commercial version would be an extremely nice additional to your facility. They dont really cost an arm and a leg either... 25x40 is about the size of my listening space at home...

    One big plus for me is that with 2 Dirac units, I can do 4 saved settings that will control all of my speakers. I will have a stereo tune for 1st, and 2nd rows, and a movie tune for first and second rows now.

    I doubt #7 is the cause. That's an easy test- rap on the catalyst and see if it rattles. In theory the catalyst should rattle more at low RPM because the pulses of exhaust gasses are farther apart allowing a rattle to happen. But the higher rpm ends up being smoother and would not have a rattle because the pulses are so minuscule it is almost like constant airflow. If that makes sense. I do agree with the group above with a detonation issue. It could be bad fuel, too low octane. Or - how many miles are on this engine? Have a tech pull out the plugs and replace, also while the spark bore is open, bore scope the engine and look for carbon deposits. Carbon deposits can get super hot under load and act like a spark plug that will burn fuel as soon as it hits the combustion chamber. I've seen that before on an older engine. Imagine a piece of charcoal burning inside your engine trumping your spark plug. All it would take is one cylinder. So check all of them. Hope that helps! Let us know what was found.

    Michael - I finally got around to reading this whole thread. About being a history major - AWESOME! My dad taught at my high school, U.S. History and Civics. He was, by all accounts dry and boring, but I don't know since I didn't have him for any classes. My best friend retired last year, history and library science major. He specialized in U.S. Civil War history, but also worked for the U.S. Army as a historian at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, PA. His last few years he worked in Washington D.C. He is an amazing storyteller and researcher, and has published a few books along the way. While not exactly raking in the money, he did very well. We need people to document where we've been, so we can get a better idea of where we are going. Bruce

    hey Richie hopefully United package smashers were more careful with your speakers than they ever were with any of mine. LOL, yeah they were perfect, shrink wrapped together and upright on a pallet. Not a scratch on the box or on the speakers. The sub's coming Monday, same method. Hopefully it will have as easy of a trip. I think that pallet thing helps a lot.

    Heresy III for the best possible front stage.

    Nice detour, but I can't overemphasize the phase coherent approach and new found micro detail and clarity of multiple entry horns, however and whoever creates them. They simply sound better than anything else I tried.

    Many years ago we had in our family a 72' Roadrunner in Violet Purple. Pistol grip 4-Speed 383 Magnum bored .030 over, Holly 750 dbl. pumper, headers, Thrush mufflers, some outrageous cam and pistons, etc...............but no radio.....couldn't hear it anyway. But it was on the list of our local police dept. to "harass this car". Very similar to this one:

    Kinda sorta mine, just not official yet, I'm in line to inherit it. 1929 Model A Ford. My grandfather bought it for $50 to transport potatoes. They would dig them up out of the ground and let them sit there, then put the top back on this and let it idle with no driver through the field, while people on both sides would throw potatoes in it. When full they would drive it to a barn where they would coat it with something white, maybe lime, and put them inside which would preserve them through the winter. He later restored it. If you are a movie fan, you can see it in "A League Of Their Own" with Madonna, Tom Hanks, and Geena Davis. When the ugly girl in the gym hits a home run out of the window, it pans to the parking lot and you can see it there. Also when Geena Davis is being driven to the dance, there is a 12 year old boy driving it, and he basically asks Geena to screw him in the back seat. My uncle was crouched down in the rear floor board ready to jump up if this boy lost control of it. He was supposedly in the crowd behind a fence as an extra as well. They paid him and his buddies $500 a day, each, for many days for the rights to use their cars. They were all members of the Evansville Old Tyme Auto Club.
