  1. 1974 Junior in high school I went to work at our cities High end audio store(Sound Systems inc.).If you were in the military and stationed at Fort Bragg during that period, you'll know it. They had a sound room with all the Heritage models powered with Mcintosh. One time in I was hooked. Boss was nice enough to let me bring my own music and stay after closing. Good times...Good times. I've owned Klipsch ever since. D
  2. I've been using the ALK universals in my K-horn clones since the 90's and I couldn't be happier. wow almost time to change out the caps.
  3. Horns looks great! I'm always up for DIY.....402's are next?
  4. Jesus. put me in front of the TV with a sad show and I become a HOT MESS....Same happens when listening to older music. Brings back memories. This has only happened in the last few years...I'm 61.
  5. My parents were a big influence. They listened to Tom Jones, The Ventures, etc. . They got me started and my aunt took over listening to The Stones, The Beatles, Morrison, Hendricks, 60's rock, Etc..It was on from there. Wish I had a nickel for every dollar I spent on music, equipment, speakers and the like. Might have a couple to rub together. This can be an expensive hobby if you let it. I was young then.....who cares. D
  6. It was old school Alphasonic amps, pioneer head unit, 2 Jensen 6x9 triaxle, 2 Jensen 6 1/2 triaxle in the doors and 2 cerwin-vega subs. All packed in a Bronco. Loved it. Would thump!
  7. Feliz Navidad Mele Kalikimaka...and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.
  8. Raleigh has several decent audio salons and a few of them do service. Had my mc2105 serviced at The Analog Store. He used to work for one of Raleighs nicer places, then broke out on his own. Totaly satisfied with his work. I think he has a web site. Big D OOPS! My Bad....He's moved to Four Oaks NC. right down I-95
  9. Cooking most anything in cast iron is the bomb. even though I love my carcinogens. D
  10. At age 16 I went to work for our local high-end audio store( Sound Systems inc. If you were stationed at Bragg in the 70's and 80's you'll know it. ). It was the first time I ever heard k-horns. there was a seperate room set up with all Klipsch. K-horns, belles. la scalas,etc. I would bring albums to work and stay after hours gettin my Klipsch on. My time there will never be forgotten.
  11. Don't get me started. I F*****G hate the tax man.
  12. Gees, at age 50 I started falling to pieces(bad back , arthritis, allergies ). Now at 61, I take 14 pills daily(high blood pressure, diabetes, severe back issues and a few others), 4 shots daily(diabetes)and 3 shots weekly for allergies. It's mostly my fault. If I'd get off my lazy arse and loose a few pounds I could drop some of these pills. D
  13. I'll probably do what I've done for the last 61 years. Go to moms and eat one of her thanksgiving masterpieces. turkey spiral cut ham corn bread dressing with and without onions mashed potatos and gravy collards(my fav) sweet potato casserole brussel sprouts homemade biscuits green beans w/side meat season apple pie cherry pie chocolate cake strawberry cheesecake Time to break out the stretch jeans D
  14. Happy Veterans Day. Thank You to all that have served.
  15. This is Geena. She is a rescue. She was a couple of months old when I got her. Think she's a pitt/sheperd/lab mix. not really sure. An excellent friend and companion. She watches TV with me and barks at every dog that pops up, even animated. Something about Dachounds gets her really riled up. Would not want to be on the recieving end of that.
  16. I am one of two Darrells in my social herd. I got the nickname Big D(6'3'' 2**lbs). Sometimes it's Big Dawg. The other Darrell got tagged with Lil' d(5'8''158lbs).
