  1. Sale of this item has been put on hold for a forum member while we investigate shipping / meet up / pony express options.
  2. I used the mounting backup ring as a template to draw out the hole and enlarged it with a DeWalt cut out tool. I have one completed but now that I know how to get the existing P.O.S. out of the ceiling the next should be a cake walk.
  3. 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
  5. No, that was incorporated into the Mc / Klipsch HT.
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. That type of turbo prop engine allows the prop and power turbine to freewheel. Those are tie downs to prevent rotation due to wind.
  9. 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.
  10. 8 pair $67 w/military discount
  11. Having a Barcardi cocktail to wish the new owners of the haunted house good luck; closed this morning.

    What I Got Today!

    Shelves and legs separate will nicely aligned pilot holes
  13. 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/
  14. Probably done doing that but then .....
  15. Butcher Block Acoustics; ordered custom spacing

    Fiddled around with the performance settings today making a Wally World trip; you have to be real careful... at 20 MPH and then 1/2 throttle it WILL break free.

    What I Got Today!

    M3 Competition. Not allowed to drive it until tomorrow when the national unveiling happens (or so I'm told)
  21. If there is a concern about the 4K issue you can get past that if your BR player has an HDMI audio only port (my Oppo and Panasonic does). HDMI video to TV and HDMI audio to the pre pro. I just used that as an excuse to buy the 160
  22. I checked and the warranty expires 7/21/2021
