  1. Best live high energy Rock n Roll band of all time. Saw them at Chicago Stadium in 1975. Billy Preston on on keyboards great concert. Then saw them in July of 78 outside,hot 90s and humid day, at Soldiers Field. Peter Tosh and then Journey were warmup bands, then the Stones came and rocked out. With a little help of some recreational drugs, I swear I felt the energy of the sound system in my teeth fillings LOL!!!! Then saw them again in 81 at the Rosemont Horizon, another great live performance. Saw them again 97 at night in Soldiers Field, with the beautiful lit up Chicago skyline in the back ground, awesome memory. Most recently in 2013, attended their concert at the new United Center, with my son and a whole bunch of 50 to 60 year olds. Great time to share with my son, Rolling Stones GREATEST rock and roll band of all time.
  2. Carl, Happy Birthday to you! Enjoy and go have a good time.
  3. I know exactly what you are talking about when it comes to pumping up the Chorus II's. 1000 watts peak power handling, to me the Chorus IIs are at their best when pushing them with lots of power. I powered mine with 220 WPC Kenwood Basic 2 amp and they were and unbelievable combo. Welcome and like previously said, visit and post often.

    Happy Fathers day

    These Trikes turn differently and MUCH MUCH BETTER! http://can-am.brp.com/spyder/shopping-tools/why-choose-can-am-spyder/the-new-2014-spyder-rt.html
  5. How could you not know the tweeters were not working??? When I go buy used speakers off Craigslist, the first thing I do is put my ear to each component speaker and listen to what is coming out of them.
  6. I am doing well, thanks for asking. I do not get on as much as I have in the past. I do drop in now and then. New job a bit busier then before.
  7. Well for me it is just the opposite. I dim the lights down very low, put on a CD and get into the music. Then after time usually before the first CD is finished, I find myself nodding out and know it is time to go to bed.
  8. I have one in a corner and the other in a partial corner, both are about 2 feet from corner to back of speaker.
  9. Maybe it was the power source which made the KLFs sound so good. Was there a sub woofer involved? I had Chorus II's and powered them with a 220wpc Kenwood Basic M2A and they could produce live concert audio sound. I would vote Chorus IIs.
  10. "Every now and then I know it's kind of hard to tell; but I'm still alive and well!
  11. This is what I use: http://highresolutiontechnologies.com/music-streamer-ii-plus Excellent sound quality Digital to Analog Or this one http://highresolutiontechnologies.com/music-streamer-hd
  12. I replaced a Marantz ZR6001 with a HK 3600. The HK is definitely better musically. For HT they are about the same in my opinion.
  13. Actually if you do not want to break the bank, I think this would do just fine. I have had several pairs of 5.5's and they do rock. I had them paired up with some Chorus IIs and it sounded great. http://www.svsound.com/subwoofers/sealed-box/sb-2000#.UxYpt4WuZII
  14. Or if just over $1500 then http://www.svsound.com/subwoofers/sealed-box/SB13-Ultra#.UxYjooWuZII and a little less expensive but very good http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/uls-15.html

  16. For what it's worth here is a suggestion. Check into a Kenwood Basic M2A amp 220wpc power house that sounds fantastic. I have one and have been using it for the last 20+ years and it has not skipped a beat.
  17. 1968 Chrysler 300 (440 CI 4 barrel dual exhaust) my dad's car when I was in high school 1986 Mercury cougar longest lasting most trouble free car I ever owned and got 30 MPG on the highway A Ferriari Testarossa that I have not ever owned but is my dream car which I will never get unless I win the LOTTO!
  18. The Rolling Stones May 28th of this yeat at the United Center in Chicago. Went with my son and had a great time. My son said the concert was great but the audience was too laid back. I would say the median age of the crowd was in the late 40s to early 50s, maybe that is why they were laid back. Most of the younger crowd got left out because at $250 a ticket in the cheaper seats sort if priced them out of it. Most money I have ever paid for any kind of an event but was well worth it to me.
  19. I second the Harman Kardon AV 3600 great sound music and movies. My son bought a Pioneer Elite VSX-51 and I would take the H/K over it anyday. Just my 2 cents.
  20. DA BEARS!!! How about that Old Man Peyton Manning? What a performance 7 TD passes.
  21. I have the HSU STF-2 and it is a great subwoofer for the price. It is the next sub up from the HSU STF-1. I think you would be very satisfied with the HSU.

    NHL Playoffs

    The Hawks had an unbelievable year and gave me much enjoyment. I knew they were something special in about the 5th week of the season. Coming back down 3 game to 1 against the Wings then the story book game 6 ending against Boston. What a ride. Thank you Blackhawks!
  23. As long as your sub amp has high level inputs. Many new ones don't. He has pre-amp out he can use.
