  1. I was skeptical for a long time, then took the plunge. Have the mower, blower, stick edger and string trimmer. Bye bye gas equipment, at least for my yard.

  2. Truth be told, the snowblower was delivered in April; never got to use it. The mower was delivered on Thursday. Today will be it’s maiden run. Fortunately, it uses the same battery and charger as the snowblower. The mower uses a single battery, whereas the snowblower uses two batteries. My neighbor’s brother works for EGO, so I got really great deals on both. I plan to not buy another internal combustion engine.

  5. Picked up the tuner this morning and it is in extremely good condition. I am very impressed. Unfortunately I won't be checking it out for a few days. I hope it works as well as it looks.

  7. My neighbor is retired, up there in age and is losing his mind. I swear he mows his lawn three times a day even when there's snow on the ground. That thing is so damn loud and he scalps it right down to the dirt....all season long. Then he puts a plow on it for the snow. You gotta see this operation.....LOL Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  9. A neighbor has the mower and it's kind of funny. Drove by and his yard was mowed and I didn't hear him mowing. Kinda strange til I realized he had the mower. Ya ALWAYS hear ppl mowing here in the hood. Will be strange someday when those mowers take over. Quiet as a church mouse in the hood? Seriously? Then ya can't mumble "NOW who the heck is out mowing!" He loves his.

  11. are pensions even offered any more? None of the jobs I ever had gave one... kinda figures ... considering I barely made blue collar. Had a lady friend drop in yesterday. It was a little awkward. We haven't seen each other for several [7 or 8] years. You know how that works... the phone call asking if the number still belongs to...and is the other person still "around"... We had a nice visit.

  23. The current status of loudspeaker specifications (in my opinion) isn't terribly good-especially if applied to fully horn-loaded loudspeakers. I'd add that the reason why a lot of people prefer the sound of horn-loaded loudspeakers--those measures (modulation and compression distortion levels) aren't even mentioned in their specifications--relative to direct radiating loudspeakers (fully horn loaded loudspeakers effectively have zero modulation and compression distortion relative to direct radiators, and virtually no one understands or remembers this point). The efficiency of horn-loaded loudspeakers isn't well suited to voltage sensitivity measures, and as Mark(?--Gnarly) has pointed out, nowadays each channel needs to be EQed flat to compensate for controlled directivity horn efficiency swings over their passbands. That's why I don't like to use sensitivity ratings since I don't use passive crossovers in my setup any more--everything is bi-amped or tri-amped, and EQed (very carefully) to flat response on-axis at 1m. The typical sensitivity ratings of loudspeakers is not actually measuring the bass bin channels in their measurements, only assuming that the bass bin channel has enough woofer diaphragm area (or bi-amping) in order to keep up with the midrange/high frequency drivers. So the whole subject of loudspeaker efficiency becomes a bit subjective even though objective measures are being used. In general, the MEHs that I've had my hands on have efficiencies that vary between 2-20% on the bass channels (i.e., on the same channel, same MEH, as a function of frequency), and between 4% and close 100% on the high frequency channels. If using midranges, the efficiency varies between 3-50%. You can see this by the number of drivers used on the high frequency, midrange, and woofer channels in the Danley SH-96 (which is almost the same dimensions as the K-402-MEH, and has the same horizontal and vertical coverage): The SH-96 is a fixed PA loudspeaker (not arrayable) that is used mostly as a center stage loudspeaker (or one each on the side of the stage). It has 90 degrees of horizontal coverage and 60 degrees vertical coverage in order to cover the full audience in a PA or music reinforcement application. The SH-96 uses 11 drivers...not because it needs all those drivers for home hi-fi duty, but because it has to play at 133 dB continuous (music power) output to full audiences in large auditoriums and outside venues--without boundary gain. Danley very conservatively rates this loudspeaker at 101 dB/2.83 V into WHOLE space (no boundaries close by--as if elevated far above ground level outside). If that same loudspeaker were rated into half space, it would jump 6 dB in sensitivity rating, another 6 dB if in quarter space (e.g., wall/floor interface) and another 6 db in eighth space (full corner loading). So it is 101 dB /1 m @2.83v elevated far above ground, and nearly 118 dB/1m @2.83v in a room corner. The K-402-MEH needs to play at much less overall SPL than that. It can use three drivers (a good 2" compression driver and two 15" woofers) instead of the one 1.4" compression driver, 6 compression midranges, and four 15" woofers of the SH-96. If you need the MEH to play louder at the same input power, add drivers. Of course, this isn't what I need at home, so for me, three drivers are more than "good enough". Chris

  28. Mr. Re-purpose checking in with my find of the week JBL Pro Line (shhhhh really wanted a couple pf PWK's bins but) SP128S. Bidding was @ $5 when I started... I honestly don't think anyone knew what they were except that guy bidding against me. His wife was prolly helping him bid. 😂 Scrub, scrub, scrub time Maybe! Both speakers look good just dirty as all get out!

  33. Ugly, cold, rainy day today so haven't done squat except research this subwoofer. Guess it will work but we'll see what shakes out when I hit the GO button. DuraFlex was used on the cab at the factory and it stil looks great so gonna scrub that down when it gets a bit nicer out. Hittin the car wash w/that 18 gauge expanded metal grill cover. Think the grill cover is just about right, after some bending, to fit back into the cabinet. Do a lil scrubbin, paint the grill and put it back together then inside it comes. Gonna be interesting! Now? Just hangin! 😂 Left my buddy scratchin his head again while listening to Spirit's 12 Dreams. This is day 3 for that one. Think he's liking it! hahaha

  35. Hello forum members, I did purchase these speakers from Meryl and am very happy with the purchase. In Meryls defense her mom is 83 y/o in whom I dealt with. Her mom is one of the nicest individual I have encountered. I picked up some other audio gear during the purchase. The most important part was both parties were happy after exchange. Interesting enough, I now see that sometimes people just come here for advice and hope for an answer to there unknown questions. Thanks to all forum members for your graciousness to those who just don’t know. Cheers Keith

  37. Thank you for sharing. A man I admire! With horns less wattage is needed plus less motion for lower distortion. I wonder if the unmentionable was Bose 901 that needs lots of wattage?

  41. Similar to the U.S. chart, but a higher increase in confirmed cases. In the U.S., cases are roughly double what they were about a year ago (45,000/M now v.s. about 24,000/M a year ago), but testing has also increased.

  42. Anything with big soundscapes. Lately I've been spinning Dave Gilmour live at Pompeii 2016 a lot. But I love some Devin Townsend, particularly live performances. Early Dream Theater, before they started self-producing. Also, whoever said men can't sing anymore is full of it. Not looking hard enough, man.

  45. Thanks for the genealogical data Davecv41, and thanks for the feedback DizRotus! As mentioned, the speakers are in near mint condition, and located in Atlanta, GA. If anyone is interested, please message me. Stuart
