    I am not "nobody." I am the sole creator the Quarter Pie Horn. I extrapolated the Klipsch MWM with a clear thought process and simulation, over several months and many iterations of virtual design experimentation, and did not publish it until I actually built 2 of them and showed the measurements, along with the benefits. It's not perfect, nothing is (even the Klipsch Designs have their anomalies) but it's a darn good sounding bass horn using the least amount of floor space possible and efficiently using up the air space afforded by a corner (as opposed to a LaScala totally wasting that dead air space). From "the sweet spot," my Quarter Pie (MWM derived) horn totally STOMPS a LaScala if you can handle the lumber sticking out into the room an extra foot. Even though I have been helping people free of charge for over 13 years on this forum, I do have a life outside of it. over 6,000 posts should prove that and need no further explanation.

    Draw the Line is the fifth studio album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released December 9, 1977. It was recorded in an abandoned convent near New York City.[1] The portrait of the band on the album cover was drawn by the celebrity caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. Although the official website for Aerosmith lists the release date for Draw the Line as December 1, 1977, the album was released on December 9, 1977[2] and entered the music charts on December 24, 1977.[3] Draw the Line Cover art by Al Hirschfeld Studio album by Aerosmith Released December 9, 1977 Recorded June–October 1977 Studio The Cenacle, Armonk, New York with the Record Plant Mobile, The Record Plant, New York City Genre Hard rock blues rock Length 35:14 Label Columbia Producer Jack Douglas, Aerosmith, David Krebs, Steve Leber Aerosmith chronology Rocks (1976) Draw the Line (1977) Night in the Ruts (1979) Singles from Draw the Line "Draw the Line" Released: October 6, 1977 "Kings and Queens" Released: February 21, 1978 "Get It Up" what oldtimer can't do ! Released: 1978 Contents BackgroundEdit By 1977, Aerosmith had released four studio albums, the two most recent - Toys in the Attic (1975) and Rocks (1976) - catapulting the band to stardom. However, as the band began recording its next album, Draw the Line, their excessive lifestyle, combined with constant touring and drug use, began to take its toll. "Draw the Line was untogether because we weren't a cohesive unit anymore," guitarist Joe Perry admitted in the Stephen Davis band memoir Walk This Way. "We were drug addicts dabbling in music, rather than musicians dabbling in drugs.[4] Although the LP would sell well more than a million copies in fewer than six weeks after its release, in 2014 Perry would refer to it as "the beginning of the end" and "the decay of our artistry..."[5]

    Boston is the debut studio album by American rock band Boston. Produced by Tom Scholz and John Boylan,[1] the album was released on August 25, 1976, in the United States by Epic Records. Scholz had studied classical piano in his childhood and became involved in the Boston music scene in the late 1960s. He subsequently started to concentrate on demos recorded in his apartment basement with singer Brad Delp, and although their previous group, Mother's Milk, had received numerous rejection letters from major record labels in the early 1970s, by 1975, the demo tape had fallen into the hands of CBS-owned Epic Records, who signed them. Boston Studio album by Boston Released August 25, 1976 Recorded October 1975 – April 1976 Studio Foxglove (Watertown, MA) Capitol (Hollywood, CA) Record Plant (Los Angeles, CA) Genre Hard rock Length 37:41 Label Epic Producer John Boylan Tom Scholz Boston chronology Boston (1976) Don't Look Back (1978) Singles from Boston "More Than a Feeling" Released: September 18, 1976 "Long Time" Released: January 7, 1977 "Peace of Mind" Released: April 1977 Epic wanted the band to record in Los Angeles with a record producer, but Scholz was unwilling and wanted to record the album in his basement studio, so he hired Boylan to run interference with the label. In an elaborate ruse, Scholz tricked the label into thinking the band was recording on the West Coast, when in reality, the bulk was being tracked solely by Scholz at his Massachusetts home. The album's contents are a complete recreation of the band's demo tape, and contain songs written and composed many years prior. The album's style, often referred to as the "Boston sound", was developed through Scholz's love of classical music, melodic hooks and guitar-heavy rock groups such as the Kinks and the Yardbirds, as well as a number of analogue electronic effects developed by Scholz in his home studio. Scholz would later found Scholz Research & Development, Inc. to market many of his inventions that he used in developing the sound on the album. The album was released by Epic in August 1976 and sold extremely well, breaking sales records, becoming the best-selling debut album in the US at the time, and winning the RIAA Century Award as best selling debut album.[2] The album's singles, most notably "More Than a Feeling" and "Long Time", were both AM and FM hits, and nearly the entire album receives constant rotation on classic rock radio. The album has been referred to as a landmark in 1970s rock and has been included on many lists of essential albums. The album has sold 17 million copies in the United States alone and 25 million worldwide.

    I agree with all of the above. He can do whatever he wants however when I interview a new hire I do it under my terms. If a prospective employee wants to dictate his own interview terms then there's no way in hell I'd hire him.

    Interesting weekend, actually. Two unbeatens go down, Baylor and Minnesota. Baylor knocked Oklahoma all over the place the entire game until the very end. Great comeback by the Sooners after being 28-3 down. That effectively puts the same two teams in the Big 12 championship game in 3 weeks. Does Alabama deserve to be in the CFP after losing their Heisman candidate QB? The first 2 quarters with Tao the Tide scored 35. Without him in the second half they scored three. That makes it tough for the CFP committee to put 3 SEC teams (Georgia) in the playoff which really is all us fans want (sarcasm). LSU as a team is #1, but are they good defensively? They gave up 37 and Ole Miss on offense went up and down the field all day long. And doesn't Ohio State stink? They couldn't even cover the 53 point spread! (sarcasm intended) Seriously, the Buckeyes are #1 if they run the table. The Big 12 won't be in the playoffs but they will be in a lot of bowl games due to 6 win seasons. So far Oklahoma, Baylor, OK State, Iowa State, Texas, K-State. TCU should get there after beating WVU the last game of the season in two weeks. The entire Big 12 conference is going bowling except for WVU, Texas Tech and Kansas. Not bad.

    Agreed. And after reading much on the net he wasn't really interested in a job imo, he wanted a platform in the media to promote his agenda. Lets break it down: who agrees to a tryout (job interview) days in advance, agrees to a location and time, 20+ NFL scouts flying in, then cancels or re-locates the location 30 minutes prior because the NFL won't agree to have the tryout wide open to the media? And his last minute relocated location was 50 miles from the agreed upon location. Pretty bizarre behavior for a guy seriously looking for a job. Kap is done in the NFL. If he had any shot at all yesterday, his last minute bizarre demands and choices permanently sealed his fate. The show is over concerning Kapernik and the NFL.

    I did some things, I should have not done in the past, but never spun completely out. Always liked to smoke more than anything, and can say without a doubt I would never do more than smoke a little weed after retirement. I liked the Coke for awhile back in the 80s and 90s, but I value living more than getting the ticker going 100 mph these days.Been 25 years away from the crazy shit. I hardly drink either. Would have never guessed, I would get away from it when I was younger. I had a few buds that moved alot of blow in those days! Im much happier now.

    Sparty WHY oh WHY have the wheels come off? They didn't look good at all and Coach's post game presser??? He was totally down and out it seemed to me. Gotta step it up somehow. Harb's looked like he was gonna have the big one he was so happy. Nov 30th WILL be a showdown up there. They're home, trying to recover from last year's beatdown and seem to have something coming together. Patterson won't have the 2 minutes to decide what he wants to do with the ball with our D line and the secondary. Although they seem decent they don't have the speed. Charles Woodson (singing) "Hail, hail to Michigan, the victors of " (to Urban Meyer) on Fox at the beginning of the game was classic. "You know those words, Coach?" Meyer: "No, I only know 7-0." Another one bites the dust. Score Urbs! IF OSU makes it into the final 4 you'll see what I mean about speed. LSU and Clemson are fast, fast and fast! Gonna have to pick it up. Today it's just one less game to play. OSU gave up points in the 4th quarter for the first time this year. In defense, the second and third stringers were on the field most of the second half. They're getting their beat down from the starters already I'm sure. On to Penn State at home next week. The Predator's back and will be hungry. Should be a good one! Tua's injury was heartbreaking to see. Done and if he's smart he'll stay done. Just heartbreaking. Saban will just go with the next man up like most schools do. I've never liked Saban for just that reason. Had to run it up and get the W. Only he knows why he left him in though. They certainly didn't need him imo. Only guys who are predicted go 1st Round have an option for insurance. He may well have gone first round and maybe had insurance. Who knows but it's on Saban and the program now and could come back and bite him on the recruiting trail. Sad day for Tua though.

    Almost done! Just waiting for my ALK extreme slope crossovers. Everything installed and just finished the black screens in the ports. Came out nice. I installed some crites cornscala crossovers I picked up a bit ago until the ALK's are done. I only installed about 4 screws in the back of each speaker so I could test them, and when i turned them up, it almost blew the backs off? lol! I thought I had blown the drivers but it was just the backs rattling. These B&C bass drivers put out prodigious amounts of air movement! They sound pretty incredible already, I can only imagine what they will sound like with Much better crossovers. I would venture to say that you would have to search far and wide for a pair of cornscalas of this magnitude? They turned out even better than I imagined. I will put up picks of the finished insides soon, as soon as I get the ALK crossovers. Good day to all....

    Well, I looked at TVs for an hour tonight. Ended up liking this one the best: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-65-class-led-8-series-2160p-smart-4k-uhd-tv-with-hdr/6325564.p?skuId=6325564 The picture looked fantastic, much better than the similarly priced Sony and LG models I looked at. It's a lot of TV for the money. Didn't buy it yet. I think I'll order it and have it delivered.

    Yea being a former addict myself and having those 12-step meetings just change me over to coffee as my choice drug I do too. But then there is today when i get the pork chops cooked in time after getting mom's meds, breakfast in her, both of us showered, two loads of laundry done..... Two matinees today first intermission is almost up for my `Canes up 2-0 over the Timberwolves and Tigers going 11-0 real soon. So second coffee being only the 20 oz min for my pot I ground for 5 seconds and got too much. It will still be fresh the next time I need a fix!

    Can't wait till the end of the Alabama game to see Saban get crucified in his press conference. Up 35 to 7 in the second quarter, and Tagovailoa re-injured. It will be interesting in what his explanation will be.

    The Best ? I have heard the latino 120 built by Bob with all available upgrades. It was a nice amp but I would not call it the best by any means. Thats a slippery slope. Amp evaluation is subjective every ones hearing is different, what appeals to one may not to another. As the OP has asked for advice in getting a tube amp calling X the BEST is not a good idea. If someone were to take that statement as solid and try a latino, not care for the sound, it may very well turn them off Tubes all together. That would be a terrible dis-service anyone with experience knows many tube amps sound different and not always better or worse just different. I personally prefer SEP, SET to push pull, but it mainly boils down to system synergy

    nissan off to a better start this AM. Still plenty of time for that to change. @Dave1290 the robe is in conjunction with winter sarong. I'll be digging some warm clothing out next week. A fall/winter storm... with rain!! Talking snow to 6500ft. Interesting set up. Cold ramming into a late season tropical disturbance coming up western Mexico. Could get exciting east of here. NM, TX east of here. Be cutting some wood this weekend. It will be a week after the rain stops before I will be able to get out. It takes a few for the water crossings and things to dry out.

    I'd get the Cornwalls and skip the subwoofer. There is very little music below 40 Hz. Spend that money on electronics. You would need at least 2 of those subwoofers with the HIIIs and perhaps 4 with the Cornwalls to keep up. You probably should look at the 3000 series.

    Me neither, but I like it! Chi-fi. You have to be careful with the chi-fi. Some look quite tempting on ebay and other websites but read the buyer reviews, and if you do have problems, return shipping to china can be most costly. I have read of some buyers being very unhappy with their chi-fi purchases after the fact.

    Let me update you on WVU's impressive rushing offense vs FCS powerhouse James Madison: The strength of WV's offense this season is the running backs. They combined for 34 yards in 24 carries for an incredible 1.4 yards per carry. The long run of the day was 5 yards. You just can't stop an explosive offense like that. They can reel off 1.4 yards anytime they want. If anybody cares WVU trailed 7-3 at halftime and won 20-13. It's going to be a loooong season.

    I'm a little at a loss to fully understand your question. Wider crossover bands blend the output of both drivers/horns, thus increasing the effective polar coverage in the frequency band above 300 Hz where the Jubilee bass bin polars fall below 75 degrees included angle (here taken in full space in the chamber...and Roy has reminded me that this is probably a much worse case than the typical eighth space loading in a real listening room corner): The K-402 horn covers much better at that frequency band: I assume that the La Scala midrange coverage on its bottom end is wider than the La Scala bass bin in the 300-500 Hz region, even though I don't have an applicable polar coverage plot for those two horns/drivers.

    I've tried several of the internet services but I find when they advertise certain channels you don't always get all of the programs, but maybe a couple of episodes of select programs. The one I'd like to try is Youtube TV but it's not available in my small market. Does Hulu give you live sports, the ESPN's, or Fox News?
