  1. This 100% happens. I know a few people who have this exact same story.
  2. I have watched a few youtube videos on these setups and literally every single room had horrible rooms with not even basic sound treatment or positioning. One guy even had these little wooden "room boundary pucks" on poles which were supposed to resonate and block the sound from reflecting off the wall somehow.
  3. This reminds me of how the Soviets got jet engine technology from the UK after WWII. A soviet diplomat came to the UK plant and toured the factory. The Soviets could not figure out what metal they used in the engine so he wore rubber soled shoes which picked up the shavings they later used to reverse engineer the engine components.
  4. At the end of the day, nothing shows off Dynamics like Lindsey Stirling. If you speakers can handle dubstep rumble, a screaming violin and vocals at ear splitting levels you know you have a good setup:
  5. Very nice, I like the proportions of the speaker. It has a certain "No Frill, all business" look to it. How deep do they go?
  6. My apologies for the thread jack but this is obligatory:
  7. I would sand it down to the metal then hit it with some Epoxy Primer then paint over that and you should be good. Here a a decent quality one from Eastwood: https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-black-epoxy-primers.html You need an HVLP gun but you could probably roll it then sand it smooth if you really need to.
  8. It must get tiring for the rider to swing his brass balls on either side of the bike around every corner. Thats impressive stuff. Also, obligatory regarding unnecessarily loud Harley pipes:
  9. I turned a single Industrial Heresy into a boombox a few years ago. I am still waiting for the time I can sneak off into the woods with it when I take my brother camping and play some crazy bigfoot noises or something from off in the distance.

    Tragic

    Imagine being the tradesman out there that knows his slip up with a TIG welder torched a national treasure...

    Any HPLV Painters?

    I ordered this kit and used it to spray Epoxy primer on the roof of my car and it turned out really well. I like that it comes with two guns too. Just put a poster board or something on the wall and play around with the settings until you get the fan you want. That compressor seams a bit small but you can spray a light coat and get it to recharge then spray another etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0046RDW3K/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. I consider "White" to be an offensive term. Im Caucasian American.
  13. Wait, so you are going to fly out and load your Cessna plane with some Heresy's and fly back with them? Thats pretty awesome, PWK would approve.
  14. Great thread! The KG 5.5s are a really fun Klipsch speaker. I did notice you have them very dampened with the Fiberglass. I initially tried that with mine but found them too 'dead' and decided to only line the back panel and something just clicked and they were perfect. I also did the Ti diaphragms and actually did not like them as much as the original phenolic ones. Unfortunately, I damaged one taking it out so I could not revert back and eventually my ears adjusted. The speakers just sounded more 'alive' with the originals. All in all these are great speakers and I found they sound best with Class D amps, especially since they are high efficiency 2 ways and have such an 'Open' sound.
