  1. Were they singing about the same time big mike got her grammy?
  2. Today I am enjoying the piquant aroma and subtle flavanoids of a mixture of Pikes Peak and S&D Hazelnut fresh ground beans. The aroma fills the house as it brews.
  3. Having a conversation with Rockhound about what I am bringing and I want to broach this idea here. I am hesitant to bring a bunch of stuff for sale or trade because most of the people showing up I figure already have more than they need and might be looking to sell too. Perhaps it might be beneficial to have a list of things people can bring to see if there is any interest in them rather than hauling and hoping.
  4. This is the problem with large sections of wood. Small ones are far less likely to crack over time. Even kiln dried lumber can crack when you start having pieces 4" thick unless you layer it and glue boards together to get there. Once you do the consistent grain pattern is gone.
  5. I will consult my marketing director and see if he can be swayed. Model "T". Hmmm, Model Terrific? Model Transport? Model Twidledee? What could Ford have been thinking anyway?
  6. And mark them up and sell them back to her!
  7. Well look I could have ten different names or just stick with one that is well known and let others be word cops. It just does not pay to keep switching things around.
  8. All kinds of wood have tight grain but you have to go up north for most of it. Now here locally there is very dense wood with small pores and the tightness of grain is not so important with these types. Not commonly available like Red Oak and Walnut though.
  9. When you find out let me know but so many here do this I went along with it and will not be changing the name to MAL. It's like motorboard. I go to the klipsch forum and this is what I read that it is called and everyone here knows what it means. You go elsewhere and the grammar cops regale you with correct versions.
  10. I am saving that one and had not seen this before. Thanks for posting it. That thing is way more complicated than the very basic 904 HF-LF crossover.
  11. My wood choices have been based on Klipsch veneer types in common use. I am rethinking this as I like the endless variety of wood. Good dense wood is a blessing when machining although Walnut seems to cut like butter even though it is not all that dense. Some of the really hard woods I guess can be hard to stain or oil though.
  12. I had some Walnut crotch wood I cut some lenses out of just for the heck of it. Some spalted Walnut also I am going to try one day and on the ridge top there are some Dogwoods I think I can get stuff out of. A pink and cream mottled appearance and really different. You start looking at all the wood out there and wheels start spinning. Mulberry of all things is yellow black and so is Osage Orange. Going to try a set out of Black Locust too this spring as I think it looks good and I have plenty of it well seasoned and I think stable enough to use.
  13. I tend to think the right way is to use something like Audacity to fix the music and not have to change settings for different songs. I look forward to Chris and Audacity 101. Audacity is a required tool in your toolkit for audio as far as I am concerned.
  14. All I can say is hearing will make a believer out of a skeptic. I have a test case here and it is the 904KPT with factory crossovers and then the Xilica and bi-amp. While not dialed in all the way yet the electronic DSP stuff is the clear winner. I fought "unneeded" complications until I built the S-MWM's and will not ever go back.
  15. The problem is with the 510 and DE75. Other speakers work just fine off my system. This was a comment of curiosity thinking of how much improvement there was with the phase plug update on 1132 drivers. The DE75's on the 510's have what appears to be the same phase plug as the old 1132's and most definitely are not the new versions. I figure this is the likely culprit and will work on this aspect first. I look forward to doing so. It will be nice to meet the face behind the comments and help.
  16. Yes. 415 bass bins, KPT 904 LF and 510HF's, KPT 100's and 200's
  17. Hi all, not ignoring but out of town on a job. Back today and achy so I will respond to new comments tomorrow.
  18. I will try this. 402's still needed PEQ's here but they are stellar when set up right.
  19. These are still here? Great opportunity and he who hesitates looses. Can't believe no one from the forum in reasonable distance has not bought these.
  20. Later, heading out for a welding job right now.
  21. I think this is the right direction too when I have time to fiddle around.
  22. Don't know you will have to ask him. SWAG never came up in topic except to contemplate the faces of attendees when they heard the S-MWM's
  23. Will do. The KPT-456's sounded fabulous with crossovers and needed no tinkering. Different horn and that lovely 1132 driver on them though. These 904's are a different animal.
