Bob has sold about 5 or 6 pair of those thus far~
I could feel the testosterone leaving my body as I scrolled down this page...
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.

"$5.37." That's what the
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
hairdo said the harshest thing anyone has ever said to
"It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount."
turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the
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
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
that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler?
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
hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!
I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key
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
Then, a few other objects came into
focus. The car seat in
the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all
floorboard. A partially eaten doughnut on the dashboard.
Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the
vehicle. Moments later I was
speeding out of the parking lot,
relieved to finally be
leaving this nightmarish stop. That's when I
deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach
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
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
mistake." I took the food and drink from the little boy
She offered these kind words: "It's OK.
grandfather does stuff like this all the time."
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
As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway
the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300
speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and
my legs with a blanky.
The good news was I had successfully
found my way home.

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~):
Played some pool:
Last chance; tomorrow @ 2 pm~
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). [:|]
It's the little round cap in the middle of the woofer cone; it covers the voice coil.
I've seen woofers "pop" when the dust cap came loose. Check that's not all the problem is~
I appreciate the info. I'm starting the hunt and will have to see what it turns up. I'm going to take a trip tothe svs facility and take a listen to their subs, I didn't even know that they're built about 35 minutes from my house.
The best ever was the Honda of Europe Rube Goldbergian ad.
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
You'd probably be happier with a floating floor.
Stick with 7.2 and invest in better separates (prepro, amp).
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!!

They make some hell@cious subs & their prices are =d@mned reasonable.
Check out their new "Empire"-- two 15" drivers & only $799!!
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.
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?
It sounds as though your amps are on the same circuit as the switches....?
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....
Item found inside my RB-75
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...
