  2. I've been dancing with the weedeater. About done for the day. ate a handful of Jujubes... not candy - the fruit, from a tree. Also called Chinese Date. They resemble a date. Sorta taste like one, if you turn the sweet to 1/10 of a date. Not something I would seek out at the grocery ... but, since we have a stand or trees, I eat them. They are coming ripe. They're good as a seasonal "treat". If we could get them year long, they lose a lot of appeal.

  4. Just wanted to say a special Hello George ... @MicroMara Hope you are doing well my friend. Hope all the rest of you are doing great. Unboxed my new 12-string guitar today ... maybe play it some tomorrow. Naturally, now that I own it, the "next" guitar is already on the horizon, but I think I'll wait until after my move to buy another. I only have 10 or 11, my bass playing buddy has well over 50 basses. His house looks like you walked into Guitar Center with all the bass guitars hanging on the walls and on stands in nearly every room. In his defense, he's a rather good bass player and has INCREDIBLE stage presence.

  5. Yup, that's a true story. I'd post the backstory on the song, which I can't type in here. It all worked out though in the end.

  6. very interesting story about how Head East got it's band name. You're a professor, so I'm sure you've heard it. One of the band's members said that a roadie, who lived with the band, stayed up all night frying on acid and when the sun rose, he thought it was telling him the band's name should be Head East. The band liked the uniqueness of the name and decided to use it.

  9. My faves are the early 70s for the trucks. Imagine doing the body that matte rusty red color with a glaze that was a semi-gloss at most. Then the backside of the tailgate (and the front grille) in black? I'd have to have a computer program to see if that would sink or swim though. The opposite of those old factory hot-rod Mopars with the matte black backside and racing stripes.

  15. Just bought another chain saw like I need one at my age. Home Depot had the 60V 18" bar cordless saw for $90 off with battery and charger. Took down and cut up a dead Dogwood tree next to the house this morning. Good torque and no pull cord nor gasoline to bother with. Now I'm tired.........

Then there was Mark Chatfield who was from Cbus and went on to play w/Seeeeeeger... Hmmmm, off the top of my wittle pointed head. It's the water I'm tellin ya! Oh yea some other guys who just came outta Akron a couple years ago the Black Keys.

  23. Believe that all us Curmudgeons do!! It was the ordinary folks that needed another paycheck before the paint that drove them a couple of weeks before getting that shine on them. Or the one guy with that Roadrunner that never got it painted.. the first matte finished car I saw was not a wrap on a truck, it was primered and done!

  25. Yep I'm his age and have buried four dogs on my property. Four foot graves and chopping through tree roots about did me in. I can relate. I could have paid to have them buried but felt that was the least I could do for them...........

  26. Mike, I will give these a chance and have subscribed. As I have the attention span of a gold fish, I am curious if these are long and drawn out or quick tips that can be read in a couple of minutes. Room acoustics and treatments is something I would like to tackle this winter. I have been watching and trying to learn as much as possible. Some of the theories seem basic, but some seem to get over my head. At times I wish I could pay someone to come in my room and tell be what I need to build and where to put it for optimal use. Thanks for taking the time to continue this discussion. Your very welcome and I believe you will find them very friendly to read and they are friendly to the less technical minded as well. Don’t miss the “Archives Link” and once there the “Load More Tab” for a good size library of them.

  33. I am also very strongly leaning towards floor standers. Hopefully can do a demo on the speakers and make my decision soon. Can I please ask as was also looking at other names like the Elacs debut 2.0 f 6.2 and Svs prime towers. What would you recommend

  41. Frankly, i don't even know what process the guy is using. Based on what he said, basically the workflow if as follows: prime the part to be painted, see if anything sticks out, polish 'bad' regions, prime again and if nothing comes up the part is painted. Just can't wait to hear it! I decided to strengthen the box walls as in the pics:

  45. ********************** FOLLOW UP AND RESULTS ************************ The Crites crossovers arrived Monday, and I installed them Wednesday night. All I can say is wow. And that is a very emphatic WOW! I thought these speakers sounded good in the compromised state they were in when I purchased them, but I had no idea just how good they could sound, even to my 59 years young ears. And to those folks that suggested I purchase Chorus 1 crossovers instead of the original 3.0b crossovers.......I owe you a huge debt of gratitude. I have no idea how they could possibly sound better. With these speakers I am listening to music I have heard for decades and hearing it for what seems like the first time. The detail of the reproduction is absolutely astounding. And some of the songs I can't get out of my head because they are now so fresh and new to me. And if the music features horns, it is even better. For example the song "Your Latest Trick" by Dire Straits off their Brothers in Arms album which features a trumpet and saxophone is an epic listen. That entire album has always been one of my favorites to test speakers, well except for the lone pop tune on it "Money For Nothing" which is utterly forgettable, it is a fun listen with fine speakers or quality headphones. And of course any song by Chicago will shock you as well. No my 301's are not the Cornwall's I have always desired, but they are now close enough for me! And in some ways a better fit for my current needs and setting than the Cornwall's would be anyway. But in any case there is no arguing the superior design and reproduction of a Klipsch speaker - none at all. Thank you ladies and gentlemen for your input and suggestions on this project. It is an absolute success and I am a very happy camper!

  46. Time for an update. I reached out to Bob Crites last week and did not hear from him. So I gave him a call today and we talked for a good 20 minutes about my speakers and he looked up the details on my speakers, the drivers installed, and the schematic for the crossovers employed. He then said the following: Check your midrange drivers and verify the dome material. If they are phenolic, then I should leave them alone and he will build me a pair of new 3.0B replacements. If the domes were titanium then the Chorus would be the appropriate replacement crossover due to the characteristics of the titanium dome in the mid. I then asked about the titanium tweeter domes that I had already replaced. He told me that was a great choice and they would be fine with either crossover. He said, "titanium is excellent and what you want for a tweeter, but it makes the mids sound pretty harsh without the proper adjustments in the crossover." Bob is a great guy, and we have quite a few things in common from our past. It really was a great conversation for me - he even sounds like my dad on the phone! I lost my dad 4 years ago and it was great to talk with someone that was quite a bit like him - another wise southern gentleman. I also found out that Bob is recovering from some health issues, so let's all be thinking about him and wishing him good health to come. There are far too few good people like him, and so many more that are nothing like him. So we should truly appreciate him while we can, instead of waiting until we can only miss him.

  47. I've used the Selenium HM3950. On a passive bandpass type net and with a decent tweeter the horn can sound quite good. I fabricated an new baffle to replace the factory baffle. I then tri-amped it for a wee time using active, analog filters that I shoe-horned into the old Crown D45s. It was a great little setup. I did sell it however and I regret that on occasion. Parts Express sells the HM3950 for $200/pr. That includes the support bracket that is required for big drivers like the BMS unit shown below. Making the baffle insert isn't that straightforward because it requires routing which is a hassle. I'll post the plans for the insert.

  48. Noah, I have a copy of that schematic on my computer at home. I can send it to you tonight or tomorrow. I've got a busy night tonight (picking up a new car). I believe if you search through the commercial section of the forum you can find it there. Mark
