  1. Just a side comment but there are probably better ways to say things if you are trying to sell something. I'm sure someone will buy them but you're not inspiring them to open their wallet as wide as they might otherwise.
  2. I'm starting an uncalled for and unreasonable rumor that he used them to carry his samples to his Urologist...

    Side note for some here... I just looked around the website for the prison. Turns out they make some moonshine there https://brushymoonshine.com/ I don't know if they'll ship it (given I don't drink, I'm pretty ignorant to these things however, I'm guessing there are issues there) I don't even know if "I" could ship.... So, that said, if someone would like a bottle and we can figure out how to get it to you, I'm happy to go by there to pick it up.
  5. Yeah but they have a great personality

    Couple weeks ago, I went to the Brushy Mountain State prison https://tourbrushy.com/ They are closed and have a new prison down the road (went there too.....but that was for work) Decided to have lunch at the old place as I heard you could do a (self guided) tour. Ended up doing so and in the dungeon of one of the buildings, was a table chock full of sheaths & stiletto's that the prisoners made and were confiscated. Your pictures remind me of an organized version of that. Side note: If anyone has the ability to see this place it's kind of interesting to hear some of the stories and see how we treated some prisoners at some locations. I understand this is where James Earl Ray (convicted of murdering Martin Luther King Jr.) stayed until he was moved to Memphis (?) where he died. I think the scantily clad Swedish bikini team is far more interesting.... unless of course, they are a bunch of DTEL's in a thong..... Then, I'll take the shiv to my eyes.
  7. What happens if they drive up with an OSU sticker on their car? Those by the way, are beautiful. Clearly been taken care of over their life.
  8. Stepping up! Hope you find a pair that works for you.
  9. realize that the K402 horn (if stood on end) is both taller AND wider than the entire LaScala box. Kind of interesting to say your "tweeter" is larger than your entire speaker.
  10. Let me throw some spaghetti onto your walls.... I have a pair of 1979 LaScalas. Bought them new and they are probably the single item that I've owned the longest in my life. So for sentimental reasons, I'll not touch them. That said, if they weren't that sentimental to me, I'd ditch the passive and slap either the K402 or K510 on top. Note that it's the K510 that is on top of the 396 so now you're bringing all those accolades from the top end of the 396 to the LaScala. If you have the space, budget and desire to really scoot your LaScalas up the food chain, get the K402 and go active. It's essentially a plug & play situation and Klipsch has engineered all the solutions for an active. The "JubeScala" (LaScala bottom with K402 on top) will in my book, easily surpass the stock LaScala because of the large (freaking huge) K402 on top AND it's two inch throat. For me, side by side, it's not a contest. Side benefit, you already own the LaScala. If you decide you don't like the 402, you can always sell it. Buy a used EV Dx38 (if you want to give it a try with fewest dollars) and if you decide you like it, you can upgrade the active for something that might be more capable. Note that the design was originally voiced WITH the EV-Dx-38. New they (the EV units) were about $1,250. They're discontinued and can be found for a fraction of that price. Disclosure: I'm a person that's "ok" with actives. There are some here that don't care for them
  11. Bah Humbug!! In an apartment.... never really let them 'breath'.... but given that AND given the acoustically superior space I had () they actually sounded quite fabulous. For scale, that's (if I recall) a 52/53 inch screen between them. Ya do what you have to do!!!
  12. Being horn loaded, I'd expect the bass on the LaScala to be more clean. The 396 though might dig a bit deeper and sound more "full". The top end of the 396 as I recall, uses the K510 horn which in my opinion, walks all over the stock top end in the LaScala. (I've owned LaScalas for quite a while and also own the 510 horn but, do not own the 396) I would expect the 510 to put out a much 'larger' sound than the LaScala's top end. Not necessarily more loud, just a bigger sound, thanks to its two inch throat.
  13. and that's a Chihuahua laying there!
  14. GACK, I can't believe I'm going to say this.... but Khorns/LaScalas might be too big in there. That said, I was with a group once and directly heard Roy (at Klipsch) say, as counter intuitive as it may seem, that larger horns work well in smaller rooms. (he proved this in their chamber using the huge K402 vs the smaller K510) The larger horn controls the sound better and that's a benefit in a smaller room. That out of the way.... it looks to me from the picture that your left wall isn't a square wall (??) That might mess up the bass on a Khorn in that "corner". None the less.... if you have an itch to try something larger, here's what I think I'd do first. Buy a used pair of LaScalas (simply trying to minimize costs). Buy the K402 (if you are not concerned with looks or, the smaller K510 if you are). The cost of this (compared to a full Jubilee) will be far more cost effective. If you don't like it (keep your boxes) you could resell the K402's. If you DID like it, you could decide for yourself if it makes sense to jump to the Jubilee bass bin. With all that said, if you want to go larger, the Cornwalls would probably make the most sense (I've never heard the Forte' so can't comment on those).... ORRRRRRRRRRRRR, the KP 396 which in my view, is a juiced up Cornwall....2-way speaker with the K510 horn (which is a great sounding horn). It's a great sounding speaker. There are now a couple here that own a pair. It is however, industrial black. Here's a picture of the LaScala idea Best thing you can try to do, which might be difficult, is give these things a listen and just as important, see them in real life, they might be bigger than your sensibilities might allow.
  15. But what about the conveyor belt??
  16. I think the Blue Man Group can show off some of the dynamics.
  17. Yeah, it was intentionally misleading.... as I recall, Deneen's advise was essentially "dump that junk" which made me giggle. It was supposed to be "fun" but since it was misleading, I realized someone might get their panties in a wad so decided to tell the Rest of the Story. On the stock side... I once had a Statistics professor in college. He would use examples to illustrate. One of them was "we're trying to figure out the defective rate of our Widgets..... GOD knows it might be .403840%but we don't so we use statistics to make our guess. Along that line, as the market goes down, "God Knows" the value that it will never (in the future) go below.....therefore, the more it goes down, the closer we are to this (unknown) value that it will never go below.....therefore, the more excited one should be about jumping in. (which is about totally opposite of what happens during bleak times) So with my chart falling.... getting closer to a number it would "never" go below (hopefully that was the 129) the more one should be interested in picking up some shares. Since it's my body/life I'm talking about, I certainly had that vested interest in "buying more shares" as the weight went down.... now that it's back to 180, that positive attitude has paid off. or something like that.
  18. Not that you were asking per se', but my weight was fluctuating.... had some intestinal issues.... didn't know what was going on. Saw a Gastro-Doc.... diagnosed with Crohn's. I was 180+ when it started.... dropped 20 lbs, gained them back, dropped them.... (before I saw doc). Saw doc around 170 lbs and he started poking/prodding. Diagnosed me. Moved back to TN, introduced myself to local Gastro since I knew I'd have a flairup..... visited him around 165 lbs. Six months later, went back near crawling on my knees.... had dropped to 145/140 (forget). He said I was out of his league, referred me to Vanderbilt who couldn't see me for three months. By the time I got to them I was 129 pounds. Just had another colonoscopy this past Tuesday..... she declared that I'm finally in remission after her working on this for around four years. Today, I can't wear my wife's pants. Too bad.... looked damn good in them!! HA!
  19. <--- loves salt In fact, I would probably salt, a salt lick before licking it. I had thought I'd clarified but don't see it. Maybe when Deneen's comments got deleted, some of mine did.
  20. For the couple that responded (Deneen's were deleted!) I thought I clarified what was going on here and I guess I didn't (as I review it) This is/was a chart of my weight. Done on a daily basis There are several times where I'd forget to chart for a couple days so it would be flat. This is why I made the comment early on that I was "all in" since I had to deal with it. I got away from weighing myself every day but knew things were improving. Weighed last week and it said about 180 so that's good. (it had gotten as low as 129 from the highs you see there so reworded, I've gone from 185 down to 129 to now, 180. It's taken a couple years to get it back on. Side story that I've told before but seems fun to again mention here.... my wife does the shopping. She'll come home with some shirts, socks.... One day she came home with a couple pair of blue jeans....said for me to try them on. Fit fine, one pair might have been a bit long. She tossed me another pair and said "try these". I put them on and they were a nice fit. It was then that I stopped ..... turned to look at her and said "These are YOURS, aren't they???" She smiled & laughed. They were. I had made a wise-crack months earlier that with the loss of weight, I could probably wear her pants and now she proved it. (is there no dignity left in this world!!??)
