    Why? I mean just why?

    I guess I just don't get IT.

     

     

    People have always asked the same questions about each other’s hobbies/passions.  My friends and family shake their heads when they see my audio setup.

  2. I’ve had Khorns, and loved them.  That said, I would not try to build them.  IMO, the complexity is not offset by the benefits.  I would build horn or tapped horn subs to supplement your La Scalas.

     

    If you haven’t seen the Volvotreter site, I suggest you check it out.  IIRC, a set of Khorn bass bin metric plans can be downloaded at the site.

    He built a Khorn bass bin years ago to use as a subwoofer but has since graduated to tapped horn subs.  Another longtime Khorn lover who would never make one, or even own one, is the forum’s own Claude @ClaudeJ1.  He may offer useful advice.

     

    I admire anyone with the skill and patience to build a complex Khorn bass bin.  It makes some sense in your situation where used Khorn bass bins are relatively scarce. It makes no sense to me in US.

     

    Whatever you do, please share your process and results.

    Dondero High. Named after one of my best friends(growing up, getting in trouble) Grandpa. What do they do with that building now? Another of my best friends was on the school board when they closed it.

     

    It’s a middle school now, the Bulldogs.  The Royal Oak high schools were combined at what used to be Royal Oak Kimball.  Now it’s just Royal Oak and they’re the Ravens.

     

    A few years ago they named the small street to the south of the Dondero, now Bulldogs, building, “Glenn Frey Dr.”

  4. On Hollywood Squares, when told that scientists discovered new evidence indicating human evolution was much older than previously believed, Jan Murray replied, “They found a tube of Preparation C.”

    when i was in that area, i lived on the boat ... didn’t have a car then, so when we’d go out it was to places within walking distance of where the boat was tied up. 

    the second time i lived in michigan was in grand haven which is much further south than the Soo.  

    someday i’d like to vacation in that area again and see the old sites ... @DizRotus owes me a beer next time I’m in Grand Haven.  

     

    Any time.  The Tip-A-Few is calling.  The 2020 Coast Guard Festival is  July 24 - August 2.  You’d be a guest of honor.  We can hit the Legion too.  A friend of mine on 5th Street hosts a big party.  Stay with us in Birmingham and we’ll go to GH.

    I used those to attach small single drivers (the one below the TV).  The heavy duty brackets from PE allowed the the speakers to be angled left to right, rotated , or tilted to precisely aim them into the mniddle school band practice space below.
