    RIP Aretha Franklin

    I was lucky enough to get hired to play with her in a concert in Dayton OH. 20 plus years ago. Definitely one of my top professional memories.

    Elevating KG4's

    I have one with ti diaphragms, one without. I prefer the titanium ones.

    Elevating KG4's

    I have my KG4s on 3 foot stands. Doesn’t affect the performance. Wall distance is the important factor with the back passive (6-8 inches in my experience). Same with Fortes which I also used on stands.

    So, now I need a TT

    https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-DJ-PLX-1000-Direct-Turntable/dp/B00O8U3ZI2 I bought one a few months back and am extremely happy. Using a Clearaudio Arum Beta cart. Solid build, heavy table.

    Best freq to low pass a sub ?

    The F-20 is much easier to build, I was able to put my pair together easily in a weekend. In my experience the better the bass, the lower I want to crossover to the sub. When I used them with Klipschorns I crossed at 50 HZ, though I think that was as low as I could make it with the system at the time. Currently I cross at 60 HZ with the quarter pie horns using active crossovers. I love how seamlessly the F20 fits in with the QPs at 60 HZ.

    Depends on what you need. 4K, Atmos? I didn't need either and bought what was, when new, an insanely expensive Integra pre-pro for a huge discount from Acessories4less because it didn't have those latest gadgets. I would take older quality every time. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/intdhc803/integra-dhc-80.3-9.2-ch-thx-networking-a/v-preamp/processor/1.html https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/marav8801/marantz-av8801-11.2-ch-networking-a/v-preamp/processor/1.html

    sold Green Egg, for Pellet Smoker / Grill Opinions

    I have a variety of grills and a Masterbuilt smoker. The smoker is great for adding that flavor to meat, though I like to finish most things on the grill to get that bit of char. Having grown up in North Carolina I really missed the BBQ that is available there, but now that I have the smoker I can make my own.

    WTB HP640 Horn

    Some of those shipping charges are ridiculous. Its a big horn but $100 for shipping is nuts. Thanks to another forum member (absolve2525) I may have found one with a DH1A driver for a reasonable price and with reasonable shipping too.

    WTB HP640 Horn

    I have looked on EBay but did not factor in seller ignorance of the model number. Thanks for the tip, I will search a bit more.

    WTB HP640 Horn

    As the tittle says I am looking to purchase a single HP640 horn if anyone has one lying around they want to part with. I want to give it a try for my basement center channel.

    Class D

    Lots of good information here. I think I am going to try the TPA3255 and see how it sounds. I would ultimately like to put together several of these to run my HT but since I am using digital crossovers with time aligned horns I have diverse power needs. The TPA3255 seems like it would be great for the bass bins but power wise seems like overkill for mids and tweeters. Any good recommendations for lower power amps for those?

    Jubilees in DFW/Sherman area

    YMMV I like that horn coupled with the EV DH1A driver.

    So Long Sew-Ups

    I still use tubular (sew up) tires in my triathon/TT bike. I put a bit of sealant in them and have never had a flat in a race. It would be a race ender if I did however. The wheels are super deep carbon fiber and not even available in clincher when I got them several years ago. That seems to be changing and there are lots of carbon clincher out there.
