  1. Listened to/watched a bunch of Jackson Browne videos last week... Running on Empty, Song for Adam, For A Dancer... on and on. Let my emotions run for a time. Cried a lot. I'll be 71 in June, outlived many in the family. I've tried to reconnect with old friends, but some of it is a lost cause and they are nowhere to be found and probably don't give a chit anyway. Playing guitar more... "For A Dancer" Keep a fire burning in your eye Pay attention to the open sky You never know what will be coming down I don't remember losing track of you You were always dancing in and out of view I must have thought you'd always be around Always keeping things real by playing the clown Now you're nowhere to be found I don't know what happens when people die Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear That I can't sing I can't help listening And I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round Crying as they ease you down 'Cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing Dancing our sorrow away (Right on dancing) No matter what fate chooses to play (There's nothing you can do about it anyway) Just do the steps that you've been shown By everyone you've ever known Until the dance becomes your very own No matter how close to yours Another's steps have grown In the end there is one dance you'll do alone Keep a fire for the human race Let your prayers go drifting into space You never know what will be coming down Perhaps a better world is drawing near And just as easily it could all disappear Along with whatever meaning you might have found Don't let the uncertainty turn you around (The world keeps turning around and around) Go on and make a joyful sound Into a dancer you have grown From a seed somebody else has thrown Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own And somewhere between the time you arrive And the time you go May lie a reason you were alive But you'll never know
  2. Great idea! More should listen to that... My wife and I still go to work. She is a caregiver and normally had a site where she supervised 25 individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Now they are staying in their residences orown homes. She is now at one of the company owned residences with only three individuals. I work at the same company in the IT department, and on overload to get a large number of office staff on vpn connections to be able to work from home. It's been a strain on everyone. If any of our population becomes infected, they probably won't survive.
  3. Perhaps, but listening to how loud or deep a real acoustic bass sounds, La Scalas are still wonderful. How many decades have folks enjoyed them without a sub? They've been around over half a century now. Can a sub get you more low end? Sure thing... but still not required. If they are required. Klipsch needs to sell them as a package.
  4. Such a wonderful album. The bass is really nice through the MWMs, but I was happy listening to it with straight LaScalas, too.
  5. I've been responding from my phone too much.
  6. I think that would be whacked to run the heresy cabs in series. Woofers yes, mids yes... each system. Would the amp not handle them in parallel (4ohm load)?
  7. I will pretty much agree with this. I never used subs with my LS and found them very balanced, however, I lowered the output on the mids a little, so turning up the volume gave me more bass without having headsplitting mids. I love La Scalas! Welcome to the forums, too!
  8. We have no cases in my county in Georgia, but not doing too well in the rest of the state: COVID-19 Confirmed Cases No. Cases (%) Total 1525 (100%) Hospitalized 473(31.02%) Deaths 48 (3.15%
  9. I don't think so. Neumann, Scully, I think Westrex were probably the big names used.
  10. Head of the Psychology Dept. at Covenant College, where I worked in IT, had visited a bunch of churches over in Alabama and done video of a lot of the services and did interviews with church members and pastors. While they did handle snakes, it was not a major part of their services, sometimes not at all.
  11. We have a few churches like that close to Chattanooga. There's a lot more to their services than handling snakes, and not often that someone dies. that photo certainly isn't from any time in recently history.
  12. These came out in 1976... They look to be in really good shape. And it is an Eminence woofer.
  13. These came out in 1976... They look to be in really good shape. The midhorn is an RCF aluminum horn.
  14. An assumption... these used Foster (not Fostex) tweeters. They weren't expensive, but I don't believe they were piezos... might have been though, since this is a two way and you could use them without an actual crossover. Piezos done with a regular crossover could sound really good.
  15. Don't look like Fraziers...almost looks like an RCA Ubangi:
  16. And a death in Nigeria from an overdose of the drug...
  17. Looks like a lot of damage https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/03/croatia-zagreb-rocked-powerful-earthquake-200322080421838.html
  18. Had/have a great pair of Panama Joes, and some very comfy Bjorn. Changed to some New Balance, which were great being all synthetic and surviving our often wet Chattanooga weather. Second pair started having a squeak when I walked, so I can't sneak up on anyone... @ssh How are the Tecovas? Been tempted to get a pair.
  19. Since my wife and I both work with folks with disabilities and often compromised immune systems, we are not attending church, we've been watching the live stream service from the diocese. I realized that by watching online I can fall asleep in the comfort of my own home instead of sitting in a pew and falling over... embarrassing everyone. 😴
  20. I thought (maybe Jim Hunter would know, or even Andy) what the Klipsch pro stuff was made with early on was a marine grade plywood. It would have had better glues and fewer/no voids.
  21. Their smaller pro gear medels are made from poplar plywood, their arrays are made fro fiberglas. I didn't dig any more than that. My much older 4311 bookshelf speakers (now almost 50 years old) are mdf. Solid as can be and I've hauled them all over. Never dropped them or left them in the rain, though. 😉
  22. That would be an excellentt horn, but not as pretty as the wood elliptical tractrix horns that Dave Harris makes. The zxpc horn may actually measure better. You didn't say what horns you are presently using in your cabs.
  23. Just finished reading this article on CNN (love 'em or hate 'em... matters not to me), from former CDC director. Great explanations. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/20/health/coronavirus-response-must-adapt-frieden-analysis/index.html
  24. All the major news networks have mentioned the possibility of these drugs. They have been around for years, are readily available and could be given to someone when they first get tested, before the actual result for a Covid-19 test is known. This way they could be ahead on treatment if they come back positive.
