  3. A friend and i rented a nice brick house in the early 80s. All we had for furniture was a cheap couch and chair set and our beds. Really didn't need anything else. Off the kitchen was a dining area with room for a good sized table and chairs. It was the perfect place to strip my 650 Yamaha to the frame and rebuild it. Loved working in the ac

  4. Rest In Peace Sancho! We both spoke shortly after he joined. We spoke again recently about the coming trip to Florida. Sancho was in good spirits. So very sorry to learn of this. Thanks for letting us know.

  6. This is sad news. Kendal was well-liked and well-respected on the Forum, and I would expect that his family and offline friends felt the same way about him. He will be missed. Condolences to your family, Sancho Panza.

  8. there is a DISTINCT difference in the sound quality of Klipsch equipped commercial theaters over those theaters using different brands... and the difference isn't subtle either.

  9. My thoughts & prayers are with the entire Payne family. Crossed paths with Ken infrequently here, he was level headed when talking about college football the past couple of years. We'll miss him also.

  10. We have been using Ancho chili's in different things, a couple whole dried peppers adds a nice flavor to a good size pot. No heat at all but nice flavor, it's really just a dried version of a poblano pepper

  13. I shared a house with several college friends. It was a great deal, as our landlords rented us a duplex that was not zoned for multiple unrelated adults, the municipality prevented us from moving in, so our landlords rented us their childhood home for the same rent. It had four bedrooms, a huge yard, pool table, and laundry. I rebuilt a Triumph 650 Bonneville in the basement.

  15. I told wife, if he was a biker, I would expect it. He NOT. And I still wouldn't approve of it being in the house. He bought it thinking how cool he would look on it.... until he has to pick it up... lol He doesn't know how to ride it with any degree of proficiency. He learned that 10 miles into his first attempt. Bent handlebars, dented tank, broken mirrors and front turn signal lights... Ride it in???? HaHaHa...He and a buddy pushed it into the house...

  17. Mornin' All We deviated from pizza Friday... T-bone, baked potato and sauteed peppers.... tossed some onion and mushrooms in with them. boy is at the ranch for a few days, Not all work. A lady.. Kind of a long distance affair She's in from VA and staying at the "ranch". I expect he will be bringing her here. He cleaned the house... and then moved the Harley in. I doubt the bike [indoor] will impress her. I can tell you. I am less than happy about it being in there. I have no tongue left, from biting it. If I had said anything to him, it would have ended with me screaming at him... and I don't have the energy [to waste] for that.

  22. Hey there people! So I've been fascinated by the whole idea of Synergy type speakers. Read a lot on DIYAudio forum and even tried to build a few using off the shelf horns. They sounded OK, but i still had that bug inside that made me want more. Then I stumbled upon ChrisA's thread on a synergy type speaker based on K-402 horn. Gone through the whole thread and through many more others, read up benefits of full horn loaded systems, modulation distortion, constant directivity and all that jazz and that made me crave a pair of K-402-MEHs even more. Buying a set of horns was out of my budget, so i started exercising an idea of building the whole system from scratch. I found a thread on an Australian forum, where a guy made a pair of K-402 replicas out of wood and XPS foam. The guy had already made huge part of the job on estimating the size of the horn, expansion rate, where it starts to curve and the curves themselves. So i opened SketchUp and started playing with the model based on images of his horn. After i was satisfied with the model of the horn, I began working on other parts - the box, placement of HF driver and woofers, small parts that help hold the whole thing together. This is how the model looked first: But i knew that i am not an engineer or an experienced woodworker and since i was not going to (or was capable of) assemble the whole thing by myself, i was in need of a help of a professional who would work on the model and made sure that all the elements fit together nicely, that the parts could be machined on a CNC and prepare the drawings necessary for production. Here are some shots of how the model looked after the guy i hired modified it: In the end I had drawings and STL files so those could be used while CNCing the parts. Now all major parts are ready and guys from local woodworking shop are assembling those: I will be using Faital HF204 for HF duties and Beyma SM-115N for LF. Bought them already. As for the amp, i will use an old AV receiver. Beymas are 8Ohm but i will connect them in parallel, so there is enough power in the receiver to drive them. And i will probably not need deafening sound pressure levels. Will consider swapping the receiver for something of higher quality if i am not satisfied. I have a room that is relatively big - 12X6 meters which is about ~40X20Ft. Speakers will be in the corners. If i am not satisfied with LF performance i will build a couple of tapped horns (have a few ideas on those). I want to thank ChrisA for all the help he provided via private messaging and patience to my questions. Without him I would never come up with an idea of building this speaker in the first place and without his help i would build some garbage So i hope this project turns out well. Can't wait to bring those monsters in my house and start the tuning process. -------------------------------- While the project is still in the building stage, I decided to share 3D files i used with the community. Hope this is helpful and somebody will duplicate the whole project or some parts of it. Most of the info is in Russian, but the text isn't really necessary for understanding which parts goes where. This is not a complete clone of Chris's MEH or K-402 clone. This is as close as i could get with the information i had. Files are available at this link.

  23. Ha! Funny you should say that. Was just sitting here watching a women's volleyball game thinking about cranking this system up. Warming up, suns out, garage door is open so yea I could blow the neighbors up! Buddies coming over for a t-bone and bringing the beer of which I "might" drink one. Think I'll wake up those 17 year old "Brood" cicada's they're talking about. Showing up in May and they say they're 100db loud. Bwa ha ha... Yup, It's goin down Just think we could all be their worst nightmare!

  29. I see. Yea he needs dry asphalt for a while, and different degrees of turns at different speeds. Nothing like taking a 90 degree turn at 35 then noticing the layer of pine needles all over BOTH sides of the road. When I switched to a safety razor a couple months ago I kept cutting under my chin and under my lip. When I quit being apprehensive and used short deliberate strokes I've been able to put the styptic pencil away now.

  31. Uhhh, no He's afraid of it. Consequently, it doesn't get ridden. He might start it and ride it around the block.... which is really what he needs to do a lot more of. Low speed on dirt with ruts and loose rock/dirt... I think he likes horses better. They have a self-righting mechanism..

  34. You're already tinkering, so why not go active? I chopped the tops of my La Scalas and currently run active 3-way with HF/bass bin/subs in stereo. I've gone a year now without changing anything, but if I end up wanting to try something new in the future I'm not locked in by a passive XO, lack of power, etc.

  35. Yea, no foolin. @grasshopper A Harley in the house along w/a new woman in the area? Welllllllll, the only advice I can give you on that is around here some do keep them in the house when they're NOT riding them in the winter. As a kid growing up in the early 60's I remember a couple of guys who were founding members of the Outlaws. They just rode theirs up the porch step and into the house every day. Most stayed away from them but all of us kids loved it. lol Sort it cause he's not Peter Fonda The steaks sound great though. 70 here today "they" say so have a couple t-bones thawing! 😂 😂

  39. `Morning Eldon, I've tried the ancho chili powder before for making my non-TX chili. It is different to me like a sweet musty flavor, are the dried ones the same? They are in plastic bags on the intl. aisles here. Next time I used only cayenne and that was a good batch. Poblanos you say, good stuffed with monterey jack! Kind of like the sweet, dark musty flavor of mesquite that I love. Haven't grilled big slabs of salmon in a while but try using mesquite chips when you do it next time, it's very good. That with asparagus (has to have hollandaise if it isn't broiled) and some bread. Voila! Man I get turned sideways in a flash recently, some days coffee is an insufficient breakfast.
