  1. LOL!! After a training class I carry a 1AAA in my back pocket, always. I use it to read the markings on my (stupidly) black Pre/Pro!
  2. Every time I see one I'm thinking, "where's my shotgun!"
  3. All of the insurance plans I've had offered no copay on *legitimate* emergency room visits. Don't miss the billing obfuscation. To be able to just survive on 1/10th of your claim shows me an appalling deceitfulness.
  4. I do not support universal health care. There is a massive immorality in using government power (coersion) to force other people to pay for my medical issues. I also doubt the common trope that we all pay for the uninsured anyway. Many hospitals are not for profit and use charity to help control that. Others can use charity to reduce taxes. How much that affects everyone's bill can never be known. I had an emergency room call for a kidney stone. Hospital billed $11,000; accepted a little over $1000 of which I had to pay none. You should have seen the look I got when I offered $100 for my part. It was like I'd offered the king a crumb. What happened to the $10,000? Perhaps the hospital "lost" a lot of money! With that sort of finance, who would ever know the truth?
  5. Its hard to diagnose this from a distance. it is VERY unlikely to be a capacitor. Move the bad drivers to the other speaker and see how they sound. I predict you overheated the voice coil(s) making it rub but not open. The design crossover point was 800 Hz. You cannot just buy a crossover for a JBL and expect it to work in a Peavey, or anything else, for that matter. Call or write to Peavey and ask for the SP-3 crossover schematic and build the correct crossover or buy SP-3 crossovers used.
  6. You guys are needlessly harsh. You don't have to buy his work. https://sonicscoop.com/2012/07/30/recording-studio-sweet-spot-alex-sterling-upper-west-side-manhattan/
  7. My center channel is a Heresy on its side above the TV, supported by a TV wall mount. It appears to f!oat in the air. Imagine the horns as a water nozzle with a fan spray. That is how the sound will be dispersed. Laying on their side gives a highly localized sound. So much so that Jobeth thought a show was coming only from the TV speakers last night. You'll want minimally reflective surfaces on the floor and perhaps the ceiling, but you won't have to be too concerned about wall reflections. There is no change in the tone of the speaker in the sweet spot, but it is naturally narrow. You will not have to be concerned about the elevation of the speaker relative to your ears, either. You could put them on any of your shelves with good results. I'd do it without thinking. Place tweeters out and toe-in toward your listening position.
  8. At least a few reasonable, valid reasons for using compression. Especially the breath sounds of a singer.
  9. No, probably not. Not at any realistic SPL. I have the Telarc version. Impressive.
  10. Mounted on the back wall will work just fine. Set level with a sound meter.
  11. Open E on a double bass or electric bass is about 41 Hz. Open B on a 5-string bass is about 32 Hz. Kick drums run about 50 -100 and companies are similar. So for music, a Klipschorn has all you need.
  12. Belle Klipsch would be better.
  13. Responding to "cost effective", look at: https://www.parts-express.com/smsl-sa-98e-tda7498e--stereo-amplifier-2-x-160w--230-214 This would be about 40 wpc at a reasonable distortion/FTC rating. or https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-S301BL-Natural-Integrated-Amplifier/dp/B00MXUCN0A/ref=sr_1_6?crid=1XM30EFXL44MI&keywords=yamaha+integrated+amplifier&qid=1562698333&s=electronics&sprefix=yamaha+integrated%2Caps%2C211&sr=1-6 https://www.amazon.com/Grace-Digital-GDI-BTAR513-Integrated-Amplifier/dp/B00PLCMZ8W/ref=sr_1_24?keywords=integrated+amplifier&qid=1562698720&s=aht&sr=1-24
