    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
  3. I consider "White" to be an offensive term. Im Caucasian American.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I zoomed in on the photo and I would steer clear of them. It looks like the shrink tube has pulled off part of the wire which means they may have been under tension which could loosen the solder connections etc. I would just go with 16 or 14 gauge monoprice copper wire.

    I think Jimmy John was just trying to me my sandwich on time.
  8. Its a similar concept but the white needs to be neutral white. The Ambilight was a gimmick with the colors, especially since ambient color around the TV actually creates a psychological effect of de-saturating the TV itself. Here is a really good Home Theater Geek episode where the cover the bias light and other interesting things that can affect TV performance in the room.
  9. This actually ties into Home Theater in an interesting way and is why I always recommend a bias light behind your TV. When you drive at night, the constant cycle of dark then sudden light of oncoming traffic or street lights cause your pupils to constantly dilate and contract which leads to fatigue and is one of the reasons why driving at night is dangerous. The same thing goes for watching TV at night, producers often cycle between light and dark scenes and it causes the same fatigue. By wearing amber glasses and having a TV bias light, it evens out the amount of light entering your eyes to avoid the constant dilation, contraction cycle.
  10. Its about 22 and snowing here in the Springs, will probably get down to about 6 tonight. Good excuse to get the fireplace going.
  11. This is the real crux of the issue. This is absolutely a mental health issue and I believe is partly caused by hormone mimicking chemicals in our plastics and pesticides like Atrazine. What a perfect cover though, instead of an industry coming to terms with the fact we poisoned a generation we simply create a huge PR stunt to normalize the problem. Its absolutely sickening we are allowing and promoting kids to mutilate themselves permanently before they reach an age where they can be trusted to make their own decisions in any other aspect of life. We dont let Schizophrenic people vote twice if they hear voices in their heads, but we allow this insanity in sports?
  12. Here is another shot of CECAA loading it into the van:
  13. Great deal for someone that wants a minimal look or willing to dress them up. https://denver.craigslist.org/ele/d/arvada-klipschorn-pair/6814721653.html

    Wedding Speakers?

    K-Horns would be incredibly hard to move and set up. If you have the manpower, time and experience you could get two Pro LaScalas and build a couple Cinema F-20 horn loaded subs. Make sure you call the local police and have them clean their uniforms so they look nice when they show up.
  15. Its 50 deg here in Colorado Springs and Sunny which adds another 10 deg of warmth. The coldest I have experienced was -25f on a ski trip to Canada. It was so cold the air would burn your lungs without a mask or balaclava. We have a diesel truck and I swear it took at least 20 min to get the glow plugs hot enough to turn the engine over.
