  1. The house has some existing no name ceiling speakers that have 6" cutouts. I just received some Klipsch IC-650s that require a hole size of 10". How would you enlarge the hole?

    What I Got Today!

    Anti-mosquito screens finally arrived https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Ffb.watch%2F4ODJhrhOnR%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR2ZXDY7v-yE_uE_jreO7g0NEkFZb8gpIRTmrWo94nMisbHx_MhUjKoRKaU&h=AT1qQ-IIleog2LD_qDiqFQLYqlaLWfhGRUqQvWpHRzADGVH2wgN7h49b2H548hxS19HUraaYQV_0J9gOZtsrn0oETY5rdiHoC2Sxyd6DQaF8ADw4aTY6PfsxJ0-Nk82yv7Lp&__tn__=-UK-R&c[0]=AT1w8mYchZjW_Bl9B53uhxwsBbnd2hJacAzzJuPvTkILDgmA742GRh_X5B2MsINf6Ri6s53fdFmahUZeXy3YsFNwEx-CY3tuMqnoACaMClUT8kil6Jnc7rdYiPG0Iupk5gWUbjwCmQ9QC-mZxEJR-obL4Q
  3. No, that was incorporated into the Mc / Klipsch HT.
  4. Asking price $3000.00 plus shipping When I bought the new house I envisioned separate 2 channel and HT rooms with the Parasound and Jubs in a room by themselves; that didn't work out. I put the preamp, amps and Jubs on furniture dollies and wheeled them thru the three available rooms, connected, powered up and listened for about 5 minutes each. Turns out that I selected the family room and combined the 2 channel and HT. It is what it is. The Parasound preamp and amps have about 15 minutes on them from a 5 minute test in each room. This is a condemnation of rooms not equipment. I can't justify using the Parasound to power outdoor speakers for the pool if I can get some $ back on a sell. Any interest?
  5. For instance earlier C-130s were equipped with Allison T56-A-15s and the gas generator (engine and turbine) was mechanically connected to the prop thru a gear reduction gearbox to the propeller. The latest C-130s use a "power turbine" that is not mechanically connected to the gas generator but extracts thermodynamic energy from the gas generator via a power turbine connected to the propeller. This system was used in many instances in the past in many helos such as the UH-1
  6. That type of turbo prop engine allows the prop and power turbine to freewheel. Those are tie downs to prevent rotation due to wind.
  7. Uh, that is not red "tape" they are remove before flight streamers connected to various things such as cover for the pitot / static tubes, outside air temp, ice detectors, true air speed ports, etc. The covers prevent insects and dirt from clogging the system. In the U.S. there is no "sticker price" on the aircraft. Each one is delivered to the U.S. military via a DD-250 form that lists the cost and is a negotiated price based on what software issues there are, what is missing due to supply and so on. OEM contract manager and accepting pilot sign the form.
  8. 8 pair $67 w/military discount

    What I Got Today!

    Shelves and legs separate will nicely aligned pilot holes
  11. I use ARC and the HDMI cables are the same unless you want 4k then a "upgrade" is needed. Each TV uses a selected HDMI port for ARC (my Sony is #2) and ARC must be commanded on in the menu. I use OTA on my TV and use the ARC for audio. https://www.cnet.com/news/hdmi-audio-return-channel-and-earc-for-beginners/
  12. Probably done doing that but then .....
