  1. If this has already been referenced, I apologize. That said, if you have any interest in autonomous cars, watch PBS Nova season 46 episode 18.
  2. Sorry to report the diaphragms are kaput. That surprised me as they’ve been “safely” stored in the plastic boxes from the Crites titanium tweeters. It seems they were dead when they were taken out of service. Apparently, my memory of them testing OK was faulty. At first I suspected the DVM, but resetting it and confirming it’s operation measuring a 5.6 ohm resistor verified the DVM works and the diaphragms do not. I should have verified continuity and resistance before creating this thread, rather than relying on my geriatric, and apparently faulty, memory. My apologies to @hatrack1971
  3. Ditto. The original spray-head would overwhelm the BUNN filters if making more than 8 cups. BUNN customer service sent two new smaller “slower” spray-heads at no cost. The next size down solved the issue. No more filter overflows resulting in grounds in the coffee. I’ll trade speed for no grounds any day.
  4. Wolverines handled Sparty in Ann Arbor. Now I owe Rich @rplace my extra copy of Thelma Houston’s I’ve Got The Music In Me, a Sheffield Labs direct to disc recording.
  5. Send a PM with your address so I can send your album.
  6. It only took six months for that setup to be spiked.
  7. The Texas Instruments TPA3255EVM and Mean Well 48v power supply are housed in the black case above the pair of iNuke1000dsp amps that each powers a pair of Anarchy Exodus tapped horn subs. The 2-channel system is now totally powered by class-D chip amps. The ability of the 3255. and the iNukes to accept the balanced outputs of a Pono player results in glorious sound in my small basement space. At present, the main speakers are the “Superized” HIPs in front of pairs of TH subs. My wife slightly prefers the HIPs to the DIY Supers inboard of the HIPs and so do I. The efficiency of the HIPs and TH subs prevents the chip amps from ever getting even slightly warm. One knock on iNukes is their noisy fans. To address this I immediately removed the fans. Not once has either INuke been shut down by its thermal protection circuit, even after extended bass heavy selections at relatively high volume. DSOM rattles objects upstairs but the fan-less iNukes soldier on. At idle, the tweeters are dead silent. The power consumption at idle is minimal, heck it’s minimal at high volume, so I often leave the whole system powered on for weeks at a time. FYI, the three DIY Fostex 103 bass reflex single drivers in the photo are for TV/HT sound only. My original plans to share the subs with the HT system never materialized. It’s not worth the hassle to switch the subs from the balanced chip amps to the unbalanced Onkyo AVR. In reality, the HT sound provided by the five (2 rear channels not visible) DIY single drivers is more than acceptable. We would rather have the TH subs provide tight bass for music than explosions for movies. I can’t imagine a return to space heater tube amps. With class-D chip amps replacing tube gear my music enjoyment has increased and my AC costs have decreased. YMMV
  8. Good catch. Anyone know the answer? $1,350 is not a deal for only one.
  9. This would be my choice. May the better team win. This is is an important game for both squads. Michigan just lost at home to The Ohio State Buckeyes and Sparty just lost at home to Penn State, which surprised PSU fan @EmilC who claimed to not know that PSU had a basketball team. No matter the outcome on Saturday both teams will make the NCAA tournament, where both teams could do well if healthy and inspired.
  10. Dave- That veneer is stunning. I believe you posted pics of that before, but another here would be nice. You, Kevin @kevinmi, and @Escher should put your heads together and pick a date and location(s) for the 2020 Genesee County edition of the Southeast Michigan Klipsch gathering.
  11. They both are “old” for sure, but more to the point, both appear to be sold.
  12. Hey Rich. Shall we put a small wager on Saturday’s tilt at Crisler? If Michigan wins I’ll send you a Reg Williamson cleaned copy of this Sheffield Labs direct to disc recording. What would you risk against a Spartan victory?
  13. Here’s a pic from the listing. This quote is from the listing, “(solid room construction's real helpful).“. Perhaps this is too much for the double-wide.
  14. They’re yours. I’ll figure least expensive shipping and shoot you the info. Glad to repurpose these.
  15. I believe Fostex made those tweeters. These seem to be a reasonably good deal for someone with the skill, time, and patience to rescue them.
  16. Tony I replied to your PM.
  17. One pair of Klipsch phenolic tweeter diaphragms as used in Heresy 2, KP-201 and many more Klipsch tweeters that followed the EV T-35/K-77 tweeters, which they DO NOT FIT. They work fine. They will be shipped in the plastic boxes in which the Crites titanium diaphragms, which replaced them, arrived. They will be yours for the cost shipping. Send a PM with your ship to address, including Zip Code; I’ll send you the shipping quote.
  18. No. I went to HS in Portage. I’m sure he played at many Detroit area high schools.
  19. Dantonio’s football success is obvious. I first met him when he was an assistant under Sabin. We were showing our then young sons the MSU campus during a summer when the campus was pretty deserted. The football facilities were closed and quiet. Mark saw us outside and invited us inside. He gave us a grand tour. Our boys were thrilled.
  20. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2020/luke-lachey-208486 Seems Luke Lachey committed to Iowa.
