  1. You got the name correct, just stay around to make sure it disappears. Just don't breath any of the fumes, probably smells like BS and propaganda.
  2. Was really talking about changes in the speaker but your room is probably not right, very few are. Mine is perfect, a perfect mess most of the time, unfolded clothes on the bench, grandkids playpen and toys, but it always sounds good to us.
  3. I didn't know that either, but I guess they outgrew that a long time ago. Those building with the barrels has a strange smell, never seen one opened like in the video. I guess they are picked by hand because the ripen at different times. I was surprised at all the different flavors they make and all the different products they make with the sauce in it, the chocolate with tabasco in it surprised me, never tried it.
  4. That would be nice, but even someone wanting a bike to ride would be good enough, well them leaving here was good enough. Of the 6 two were adults and the last to to go, so some kids got a bike.
  5. Ok I am a little surprised and happy. I got tired of the 6 bikes under the side patio, they were the kids and grandkids so I asked all of them if they wanted them and they did not. So I made a sign that said free bikes and went and put in on the side road which is about 500' away, we live on a corner. I did this yesterday, by last night 4 bikes were gone, the smaller ones for kids. Today the wife drove past the side and someone was loading up the last two bikes which for adults, so she picked up the sign. 6 less bikes in the way around here, I'm happy. I was hoping if someone needed a bike for a kid it would take little to get them working fine. A little air in the tires and some oil on the chains and they would be fine, or disassemble and repaint to make them look new. Just glad there gone, should have done this a year ago.
  6. Could be but in that case it shouldn't play OK for music I would think ? Unless it is only getting the 2 channel signal and you can't hear if the center speakers are not on ?
  7. Call Cory and talk with him, he is an authorized dealer with great prices. @MetropolisLakeOutfitters
  8. There were at least 2 different finishes on top of whatever stain was used. I have a couple sets of Forte 2's, one is OO= Oak oil the other is OC= Oak clear. But one thing I have found over time the Oak tends to slightly yellow and darken over time, it makes no difference if it's oiled of a clear finish. They are almost exactly the same color as those pictures I think you will just have to experiment, as someone said maybe on the bottom. Good luck Below.......... This is Oak plywood stained light Oak with just oil on top of that. The smaller speaker on the top right is a 30+ year old factory Oak finish on a Forte, slightly darker than the 10 year old wood underneath. .
  9. Welcome I don't know anything about soundbars but I think they are separated into 3 parts/speakers as far as the sound goes. To me it sounds like with some inputs the center set of speakers are not playing. Like with the regular home theater if your center is not playing you get very little voices since that's where it comes from. Check in the menus of whatever is feeding the signal to make sure it's set to multi channel, if it is all coming from the tv sometimes different things on the tv can output different signals and this could be the problem. To me it sounds like the bar is not getting the multi signal from all sources. I would start by going through all the menus. .
  10. I hate that part, especially with different types of wood, I need more patience. I really like the colors you picked out, not to dark or light, and makes the grain stand out. .
  11. It's just the get around to it, and going to get some Red Oak to match the bass bins. Of all the woodworking I have done I still do not like making nice 45's, it's not hard it just gets me nervous for some reason. I tend to look at the smallest problem if I built it.
  12. I want to trade with BSM. Then our tree would look like this.
  13. I thought of that same thing a few years ago since my wife does not want cloth over the horn, I didn't want cloth either. I just never got around to doing it BUT after seeing yours I might have to get off my butt and do it ! Very nice and good work on all of it, you definitely have patience. I am definitely not brave enough to vinyl the inside (or outside), it would positively not come out like yours If I tried that they would probably end up with mumps and not the good kind.
  14. Make another post dude, you landed on a bad number.
