  1. I believe Bob Crites sells CNC Masonite grille frames, as well as fabric. Check out critesspeakers.com. There are searchable posts describing how to stretch and glue fabric to the frames. Good luck. Keep us apprised please.
  2. It may seem cliched, but DSOM is my favorite. The clocks are a favorite also. I once levitated a friend from a sound sleep with that track.
  3. FWIW, DIY is my middle name, but I would NEVER devote the time and materials to such a project for the reason stated by Michael @Schu. Neither would I discourage anyone else from doing it. Most people think I’m wasting time and money fooling with audio.
  4. They look nice, and RandyH is correct about the updates. While true originality would be preferable, they’re still worth the asking price. It would be nice if the original components were available and included, but I doubt it.
  5. When your food comes from a toothpaste tube, that’s not the issue.
  6. Apparently they’re gone, although the listing still says, “Pending.” What could be pending, the results of the seller’s competency hearing? Add a zero and the asking price would still be reasonable.

    Jokes?

    Failure to launch.

    Don’t see this often enough where original networks are left intact and in place when new networks are installed.
  9. I’ve felt that way with all my vehicles after selling the one in my avatar.

    From the listing.
  11. Congratulations. I’m eager to hear your impressions.
  12. Dean @Deang The OP might not understand that Foster and Fostex are the same Japanese company. Fostex does make quality products. I agree completely about listening to them as they are before reversing the “upgrade.”
  13. It took some digging in the owner’s manual, but I was able to confirm the existence of the “Auto-Stop” feature and how to disable it. As others have articulated, I don’t see this as a direct benefit to me, but as a way for Ford to meet CAFE standards and/or emissions regulations.
  14. That was a very good find. Congratulations.
  15. Welcome. Are you also new to this paragraph thing? I would enjoy your well thought out post more if it were broken down into paragraphs. Even though the word count doesn’t change, paragraphs make it visually less intimidating. Comparing Maggies to Heresy is difficult, they’re so different. IMO, the primary differences are the dipole delivery of Maggies compared to the focused dispersion of the Heresy horns, and the inefficiency of Maggies compared to the efficiency of Heresys. If forced to choose, I’ll take the efficient, dynamic, low distortion sound of Klipsch. That’s not to say the I’ve not enjoyed, Maggies, Ohm Walsh, Quad electrostatics, or even Bose 901s, when properly powered and properly set up. NPR’s Texaco Opera Theater was spectacular from my early 901s suspended from the beams of my parents’ large family room and powered by a Dynaco ST400. Nevertheless, I much prefer my Klipsch as my daily drivers. You’ll quickly get a sense of who you’ll take seriously and who to ignore, but it’s all entertaining.

  17. I got the bright idea to go to Del Taco on Tuesday 5/5/20. The drive-thru line was out into the street. It took nearly 45 minutes to get the order. I just relaxed and listened to the radio and slowly worked my way forward. At least I was out of the house.
  18. Most accomplished stick drivers can heel and toe to hold the right foot on the brake while rocking it to the gas as the left foot releases the clutch. An experienced driver can stop on a steep incline and then move forward without rolling into the Peterbuilt on the rear bumper, all while leaving the hands off the emergency brake. I get a kick out of watching local doctors ride the clutches of their Porsches at stoplights because the don’t know the heel-toe technique.
  19. IIRC, manual Subarus had a hill holder feature that kept the brakes engaged after you lifted your foot from the brake pedal until you released the clutch. Sort of like Hurst Line Lock used at dragstrips.
  20. Me too. Even after I figured out what was happening. Carl @CECAA850 what is the repair experience with these systems. How much gas can it save to offset the cost of a starter?
  21. Looks like your very nice looking La Scala AL4s have the best of both worlds: old school plywood, combined with modern networks. Enjoy them, and welcome.
  22. With slightly more than 1,500 miles since purchased new in November, I just realized this 2019 Ford Transit Connect has that auto-shutoff feature in traffic. It’s mostly driven by our salesperson; have to ask her if she was aware of it. On my way to Del Taco for Taco Tuesday, I noticed it start up when I lifted my foot from the brake. I tried to recreate the situation while inching forward in the drive-thru line, but it did not shut off. On the way home I duplicated the shut-off and restart. After moving with traffic for some time, when coming to a full stop at a red light, the engine stopped, the tach dropped to O rpms, until I took my foot off the brake. Making full stops—as I always do😇—at the 4-way stops in my neighborhood, killed the engine, which restarted when my foot left the brake. This is the first such vehicle I’ve driven. Next you’ll be telling me there’s a way to set and maintain the speed with my foot off the gas.
  23. Thanks for the well thought out comparison. I’d be looking for the receipt, but don’t let me influence your decision.
