  1. Probably trying to shake a package loose that was hanging off the back of the truck.
  2. I have 2 Vizio televisions, both are subpar compared to our 2 Samsung's. Are any televisions made in America anymore ?
  3. Both excel equally at package destruction.
  4. Toe in to a triangular listening position and something on the glass (left speaker)to keep the sound waves from reflecting off will go a long way.
  5. Golden Corral this year, hope they are serving turkey.
  6. 20-30 feet sounds about normal with the few devices i have used, even less with walls between the signal. Klipsch rarely visits the forum, you may receive better information if you contact them directly.
  7. Subs work best when they’re placed either close together for mutual coupling, or spread very wide to cover large areas. The basic rule is to have them either less than a quarter-wavelength apart or more than two wavelengths apart for their passband, which for 40 to 100 Hz means less than 2.8 feet or more than 56 feet. Visit the BFM forum if you wish to learn more.
  8. Unfortunately propping subs under mains is a no no but the proper subs for the application would be Tuba 30 or Tuba 45, both are the same horns but folded differently. These will need to be high passed @ 35 Hz unless you run 4 cabinets witch you can lower it to 30 Hz. If you need to dig a bit lower and don't mind hauling a bigger cabinet get the plans for the Tuba 60.
  9. The KG-4 is one of the more laid back sounding Klipsch models so you would probably want to hear other models before committing to purchase if you think the KG-4's were bright sounding. Forte II would be a good starting point if an upgrade is what you were looking for.
  10. Never had any carburetor issues, i mastered the Holley carbs and others over the years. Chevrolet's transmission bolt pattern is different from Buick, Olds & Pontiac. I had 3 different Oldsmobile's from 3 different years with factory 455's. 1 came with a 2bbl from 1971, that one stayed stock. The other ones were factory 455's 4bbl from 1971 & 1973, those were built up after owning a bit to different levels. Had a few 60's Mopars as well 383 & 440, lots of time racing at Great Lakes Dragaway with those as well. Same place my father raced back in the 60's with his friends. Mopars responded much better to modifications for the most part though i do remember a few broken flexplates.
  11. I have done quite a bit of work with BB both 1/2" and 3/4 Or 12mm & 18mm really, i don't see an issue with it as its all connected from rear panel to the doghouse. For the horn mouth braces should continue through the driver chamber to eliminate any chance of panel resonating. Good luck.
  12. The Oldsmobile 455 was never a good start for a high performance build, maybe if you were looking for 500 horsepower or so but there are better choices such as Pontiac or Chevrolet. I built a few Olds 455's, it made a better low to midrange RPM torque engine to move the lead sleds of the time but under high RPM's they would come apart and parts were costly compared to others. If you did want the Olds powertrain i recommend replacing the heavy cast iron pistons with aluminum first to lighten the rotating assembly and use a camshaft that peaks under 5000 RPM or spend big bucks on a complete bulletproof rotating assembly.
  13. My guess is Chevy S 10 4WD body swap as it would be easiest but who knows, you could swap just about anything if determined.
  14. Pretty sure that DATS just measures drivers/speakers. Edit. Looks like that tester measures capacitors, inductors and resistors as well. Interesting.
  15. I agree, just add the proper horn loaded subwoofer to fill the bottom end for best results. I recommend one of these.
  16. That was mid/late 1980, by 1981 all GM vehicles had computer command control with the exception of heavy duty trucks. My father had an 84 V8 Cutlass as well, real POS.
  17. Seal off the amplifier opening and pick up a pro sound amplifier or even a subwoofer amplifier and leave it external, keep it cheap as its not worth throwing much money into repairs. Or Replace it with one of these if the budget is limited.
  18. Seeing as the last 3 posts obviously didn't actually read your post i just wanted to chime in on the MDF comment, if it happens to be made from MDF and needs to be rear mounted just add a steel plate to both sides of the cabinet and bolt through that so nobody gets hurt underneath.
  19. Post the listing with cash only transaction, that should weed out most of the scammers.
  20. When i drink vodka i like to chase it down with tequila so it doesn't taste like crap. By the way, ignore the salt and lime with tequila shots thing. A freshly sliced orange works much better.
  21. 100% stock, i spent every weekend at the track until i had kids. The Mustang if running right should be in the high 13's or low 14's. <Have a look around>
  22. Something is not right with that GT 500, it should be much quicker. My 72 Pontiac Le Mans with a 350 2BBL ran similar times, all stock with the exception of aftermarket headers and dual exhaust.
  23. Poor driver choice and bad idea overall. Sell those drivers or make other use of them someplace else.
