  1. I used to have a cat that would disappear for days on end; turns out she was climbing inside the rear port on my KLF-10s...
  2. Bob has sold about 5 or 6 pair of those thus far~
  3. I could feel the testosterone leaving my body as I scrolled down this page... looks nice~
  4. These are basically a line array, 92-94 inches tall, built from the design of the Sunfire Cinema Ribbon speakers. The great thing about the aluminum extrusions & multiple drivers is you can make them anywhere from 2 feet to XX feet tall~just add side-firing woofers & ribbons.

  6. Coytee: If You Don't Feel Old Yet...READ THIS... "$5.37." That's what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bell said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the harshest thing anyone has ever said to me: "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount." I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the counter in front of me. "Only $4.68," he said cheerfully. I stood there stupefied. I am 48, not even 50 yet, a mere child! Senior citizen? I took my burrito and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo. Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me? I'll show him, I thought. I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile. Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler? "Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, hey?" I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind: leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone! I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing. That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rearview mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rearview mirror. Then, a few other objects came into focus. The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten doughnut on the dashboard. Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the alien vehicle. Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop. That's when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my burrito, only it was nowhere to be found. I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was, "What is the world coming to?" All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here?" At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Security benefits. Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake." I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized. She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time." All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40. Yes, I was racing some punk kid in a Toyota Prius.. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast. As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300 speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blanky. The good news was I had successfully found my way home. -*-*-*-*-*-* -*-*-*-*- *-*-*-*
  7. Attended: Gordon from Polk Audio forum Robin from Carver forum Bruce from AudioKarma forum My friend Gary (old working buddy) We had a great time, ate some good food, & listened to a whole slew of music~ Bruce brought some blues I'd not heard before, as well as the new Hendrix CD (good Hendrix, not so crazy about the recordings). Bruce from AK brought his Polk RTi-55 speakers; they sounded great! Pics (wow, I need a new camera~): Music: Eats: Played some pool:
  8. Although I don't do it all the time, I've hit 112 dB before on my 2 channel; actually saw more than 120 dB on my H/T I used to have (Sunfire Ultimate Receiver, Klipsch RF-83 system). [:|]
  9. It's the little round cap in the middle of the woofer cone; it covers the voice coil.
  10. I've seen woofers "pop" when the dust cap came loose. Check that's not all the problem is~
  11. That's a very cool ad, and fairly plausible, except for the part where the wheels roll uphill. That muffler rolls a lot further than you would expect, too. Even so, it's a fun ad to watch, and there aren't enough of those around. Actually, they weighted the wheel to make it do that. It was all done in one continuous take. More details: Remember the popular children's board game, Mousetrap? The game centered on the ability of an assembly of levers, chutes and ramps to send a plastic trap over a toy mouse. Segue to a $1 million commercial produced by Wieden+Kennedy UK for Honda. The spot, dubbed "Cog", features 85 car parts linked in a mesmerizing symphony that culminates with the introduction of Honda's new Accord. No product shots; no Celine Dion; no warnings about professional drivers on closed courses. Just a collection of ball bearings, wiper blades, tires and mufflers seamlessly "interacting" with one another to form a true piece of art. "Cog" took five months of production and design work before it was ready to be shot. And after 605 takes, the dominos fell as they were meant to.
  12. You'd probably be happier with a floating floor.
  13. Stick with 7.2 and invest in better separates (prepro, amp).
  14. http://www.physics.sc.edu/kunchur/papers/HIFI-Critic-article-by-George-Foster.pdf Incredibly interesting article on Dr. Milind N. Kunchur, about how we hear, with emphasis on higher digital sampling rates being necessary for correct timing issues. A must read!!
  15. Check out http://www.epiksubwoofers.com They make some hell@cious subs & their prices are =d@mned reasonable. Check out their new "Empire"-- two 15" drivers & only $799!!
  16. What you are missing sitting on a concret slab is the "tactile" experience of feeling the low notes through the floor. Set up your listening position on a 2x4 stud sub-floor and it will be back. I have a friend with a KILLER basement 7.2 system & he has the same problem.
  17. There are MANY considerations when designing a speaker; just slapping in different components won't USUALLY result in a satisfactory sound. What exactly are you trying to do?
  18. Zildjian are the onlycymbals I've ever cared for. The dark K cymbals are great; but pricey. for light work, some of the A's have a really good sound....
