  1. Ugh, memories. I had a '69 Mach w/the 351. Another guy bought a '70 black Cobra Jet complete w/the shaker hood and some kinda "out there" nerdy chick here bought a bright yellow/black Torino w/the Cobra package. I traded mine, he still has his and it's always been in the garage and she just sold hers but won't tell anyone what she got for it. Musta been big buck$. Yup, I was THAT freaking dumb even after I told myself I'd keep it forever. Don't ask what I bought either but THAT was dumb too! Yup, I did... 😂

  2. There are several pictures of the Enactron truck at K&A in the 75th Anniversary book which is imminent. In one, Curtis Putnam (Klipsch Engineer) is strumming Emmylou's guitar. And here is the American Studios pic I promised over a year ago!

  5. From the linked article above: Regardless, this history humbles vaccine scientists. They know that they hold people’s lives in their hands. As stated by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, perhaps the most prolific vaccine scientist in history, “I never breathe a sigh of relief until the first few million doses are out there,” (Personal communication, Paul Offit, 2004). For this reason, scientists and public health officials carefully analyze and continually monitor the data related to every vaccine before, during and after it becomes available. Basically Maurice is saying that he's nervous till a few million doses are out which means he's not certain of what is going to happen till he sees it. He's also saying that they need to keep watching what's happening after people have been injected because they have no idea of what will happen in the long term.

  8. There's absolutely no data available to support that notion or claim. If you have some, please submit it. No clinical trial to date on these vaccines, which have been in use in humans for less than a year, can predict what the long term effects or risk factors could be. I'm not saying that there will be higher incidence of this or that with vaccinated v.s. un-vaccinated individuals, but the reality is that any potential long term effects are unknown at this time.

  9. Visit went well. They are a staright up seller. The equipment is stored indoors in a clean, well lit facility. They are not a reseller - The company upgrades movie theaters - not just the sound systems but the entire theatre. This storage had some speakers from a few of their theatre redo's. I misunderstood that these would be trashed if not sold. They have had them for a while. The do not always save speakers - it is easier for them to demo them. Had good discussions and hopefully they realize that there may be some money in saving them. Talked a lot about the horns and drivers. They did not have any Klipsch horns. Told him about the 402 and 501 and he could probably sell out all that he could find. They will keep that in mind going forward. The 904's were in pretty good shape overall. Dusty and nicked up like you would expect but not beaten up. Inside looked very good and the few woofers I tested (just with a battery) worked fine. Coils had free travel. Some of the speaker wire boxes were busted up a littlle and would need to be replaced. The crossovers in the box looked good on the ones I bought. Again - dusty but no livestock signs. They had about 20- 904's still there. I bought 2 - 904's and 2-480"s (for under my Lascalas) The majority of the speakers were JBL's. I bought 2 - 4722 HF setups with everything except the horn drivers for a very reasonable price. Gonna compare with the 904 once I get it put together. Overall a great trip - wish I could get more but don't have room. Jarred will keep me in mind when more equipment comes in Price list is above. The top JBL line if for the 2374 horn and driver fo the 3722 JBL speaker. He listed it by driver number.

  11. Forgive me Howard as it was not on Long Island. However, a great deal of pride which still exists today forces me to interject. I hope you understand. In the third quarter of 1979, myself(at the ripe old age of 21) and a partner were awarded our Klipsch franchise. We felt that opening our retail establishment totally and completely hinged on being able to offer Klipsch to the public in the small California, Central Valley town of Merced. We opened our doors and began operation in August of 1979 thanks to the help of a lot of GREAT folks in the audio industry of that era. Jack Thornton Co., Dale Sprock, Bill Rogers, Woody Jackson, Kent Sheldon, Chuck Mulhearn and the list goes on. Georgia helped us a lot on the credit end of things as well. We proudly named our new baby "Sound Encounters". The license plate on our delivery vehicle(a white, 1962 Ford Falcon pickup with three on the tree)proudly declared we had "HiFi4U". The store was gorgeous. Dark Wood and blue carpeting on the walls and floor. Live plants, art, etc. We had one enclosed sound room which contained only the Heritage line in it's entirety(except for Belles)later on the KG's, Fortes and Chorus, etc.. Boston Acoustics and the "other stuff" was outside. LOL! Merced had never seen anything like it. We were SO proud. Those were grand times, times which I will never, ever forget nor the folks that were met along the way. Just when I thought things could not become anymore surreal, in 1983 I believe, myself and a small contingent of about five other guys from California dealerships were invited to Hope to spend a week at the plant and the "Compound". Talk about giddy, wow! The folks in Hope were ALL world class hosts. We felt SO welcome. From the plant tours, the educational and sales tools, to heading out to Garland over "Piss Bridge" for Catfish and Hush Puppies, it just could not get any better.....or could it? Mid week we were told we were going to the Bosses home for lunch. The Boss? Turns out when we get there it is the home of PWK and Ms. Valerie. Holy Cow, I have never been so intimidated in my life. That soon passed. They could not have made us feel more at home. We had a wonderful lunch. PWK showed us his model Trains in the pool house(yes, the one that carried refreshments to guests by the lap pool), Ms. Valerie was gracious enough to play the same song on both her Steinway and Bosendorfer pianos so we could hear the difference between them. We were commoners in the presence of royalty, but we did not once feel as such. One of the most memorable experiences of my life. I also stood shoulder to shoulder(well, i'm only 5'4", but you know what I mean)with PWK in the fairly recently completed Anechoic Chamber. GREAT experience but a weird place. Standing in that thing made me feel "off" somehow, haha. Anyway, I'm sorry if I have gone on and on. Happens to me every time the subject comes up. But those times will never be again and I will forever cherish the memories, the people and the customers that allowed us to change their lives forever by bringing Klipsch into their home. though my partner and I have not been involved since the '90's, the business still stands today, 42 years later, in it's current format. I still run into old customers, old friends who thank me, thank us, for the enrichment that we brought into their lives through Klipsch.

  20. There's absolutely no data available to support that notion or claim. If you have some, please submit it. Feature Article: Long-term Side Effects of COVID-19 Vaccine? What We Know. | Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (chop.edu) Even with this history in mind, some reasonably wonder about the mRNA vaccines because they have not previously been approved for use in people. But here, too, we can be confident in what we know: Although COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are new, this type of vaccine has been studied in people before. mRNA vaccines against HIV, rabies, Zika and flu have been tested in phase 1 and phase 2 trials in people. The technology has also been used in clinical trials as a way to treat some cancers. Even though these products have not been licensed for use in people, these efforts provided important information about mRNA technology and its safety. mRNA is made and used in protein production in all cells of our bodies. As such, cells have mechanisms in place to ensure that no protein is made in quantities greater than needed. One way this happens is that mRNA has a “poly(A) tail.” In the cytoplasm, this tail ensures mRNA decay. As the mRNA is used to make proteins in the cell, the length of the poly(A) tail decreases, until it is too short for the mRNA to continue being used as a protein blueprint. Once this happens, the mRNA breaks down and is removed as cellular debris. This process limits how long mRNA remains in the cytoplasm — and, therefore, how much protein is produced. As such, poly(A) tails ensure that the cell breaks down the vaccine mRNA in a timely manner. Likewise, this understanding allows scientists to design vaccine-delivered mRNA in a way that ensures it does not stay in the cell longer than needed to generate immunity. Because of the knowledge gained with other vaccines, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required companies making COVID-19 vaccines to follow trial participants for a minimum of eight weeks before they could submit their data for approval. Likewise, the participants in the mRNA vaccine trials continue to be followed even though the vaccines have been approved for use.

  21. This is a preference question or a Math question.... Math... 101db@1w/1m 2 x power = 3db 100 W ph. 1 Watt dubled, then dubled... 1,2,3,8,16,32,64,128...that is 7 times. 7 x 3 =21db output... 101 + 21 = 122db max out. to get there clean, you need at least 6db headroom. So 4 x the power. 128 x 4 = 512 Watts per channel to reach full volume with headroom at 1 meter. Your seat is ....4 meters away...for fun...-6db every time the distance is doubled. that's 2 x -6 = -12db off the level due to distance. SO, with about 500 Watts to each speaker, you can have 6db of head room and about 120db at your seat. IF you want 3db less than that, cut the power in half.

  23. Since when? I know it is for Covid-19 because it's under a emergency use authorization, but I think all of the standard ones are all required for basic or officer training. It is totally voluntary, and they are told it is voluntary. For the usual vaccinations, they are not voluntary, but there has always been a medical or administrative exemption. For example, if you had an allergic reaction to a previous vaccine they have to review that carefully and extensively. I remember being asked if any previous reactions, and if I was allergic to certain things like eggs, etc. . If you had a previous reaction or relevant algery, you were sent to specialist and evaluated. On Admin/Religious Exemptions, for that you had to state religious grounds, that got you an audience with the base commander and then a meeting with medical staff. Children who use DoD sponsored schools or day care are required to be immunized unless based on valid religious grounds or medically contraindicated. If a vaccine was declared "mandatory" for a field of operation (I don't think there are many currently) the only exemption is medical. If you refuse, the commander has to advise you orally and in writing that if you refuse they can force you to get it. After the warning and a refusal they would probably prosecute you for willful failure to follow a legal order under the UCMJ.

  24. After playing them for a few days they really seemed to open up. I believe the guy I bought them from said they were in his closet for a very long time. Just seemed they needed to be played for a little bit. Moved them a little farther from the wall and turned them up to a nice level And they have a very nice balanced sound. Not boomy like my old KG4s.

  27. Okay. Fair enough. My only continuing counter is that we do know that infected people spread Covid-19 and that most of us will come in contact with someone or are ourselves vulnerable to the worst effects of the virus. I actually trust the science behind the vaccines because the community seems to support it as well by making themselves "Lemmings." This last year we've lost well over a half million people to the virus and the vaccine seems like a better alternative and I understand the need to get to herd immunity. Understood on all fronts. I hope you are wrong because it seems you are predicting the worse is to come regardless if we vaccinate--That's not what I'm gleaning but we are looking at the same material. Regardless, by July I predict the vaccinated people will be in better shape than those who aren't. We'll see.

  36. The latest from Faucci on if eating indoors in restaurants is safe post vaccination: "No, it's still not," Fauci said. "For the simple reason that level of infection, the dynamics of infection in the community are still really disturbingly high." "If you are vaccinated, please remember that you still have to be careful and not get involved in crowded situations, particularly indoors where people are not wearing masks," he said. I thought that after you were vaccinated you were immune??????

  37. Fwiw, some people like to put a different amp on the tweeter/LF driver and if they change the crossover it makes sense. Otoh, I think Klipsch does it because Audiophiles expect it on a quality speaker and it dresses up the lower end models to impress newbies who think they are getting an Audiophile speaker. Of course I could be even more cynical and say that speaker wire mfgs compensate klipsch to do it. That's my take.

  38. Exactly the point. If someone had maybe 10-20 years left (although it's hard to predict things) the weight of the risk/reward analysis might be completely different than say for a 5 year old, who has a much longer life expectancy.

  47. Most of those, a very quick look, were non-prescription supplements, like for "male enhancement." There was one drug that was pulled because the strength was mislabeled. But there is for sure some missed calls by FDA, and drugs ended up causing severe and serious problems. The mRNA delivery system has been under study and testing for several years, very limited, so that gave them a little bit of a head start.
