Very nice. You should write a song with that title - oh, that's right, too late.

WillyBob - BUY THEM!!  I have a pair that I bought for (overkill) rear surrounds and I'm tempted to pull them down and use them for two channel.  I played with them that way for a couple of months (2 channel) before I put them on the wall and I LOVE them!  I'm a fan of the front facing port (I know not all are), but I think they sound wonderful!  If they're on the cheap - GET THEM - I'm confident you will not be disappointed!  And as dtel said - you can sell them if you don't like them.  (Someone will take them!)  Good luck!  Enjoy!!  (think you could use parenthesis this much in one post?) game on!

@280 ea, new

sounded OK to me.  IDK I am trusting y'all to keep me right

 

I would use our burr grinder, but I am not up to hand cranking it at 4AM.  I normally use a braun spice mill. It OK, sort of, if you like a mix of grind/s.

That's what happens when you try to enlarge a tiny photo:mellow:

Oh Ok, for a minute there I thought you went to the Dirtmudd school of photography. :huh:

 

Sorry Dirtmudd, but I thought I was going blind the way you use to take pictures.  :P

I know, I used a iPad a couple of times to post a pic here just because it was so much easier. No matter how still I held it the pic was terrible, and with less light it went down hill quick..

I think SW of Tucson hill folk has a little different meaning to hill folk in some places in the back woods of the Eastern mountains ?

 

Can't talk, from the S part of Louisiana is not what most would consider normal.

I was visiting family in IN. My bro-in-law cautioned me about the "hill folk" when I told him I was going to go fishing at Tablerock Lake. I put my bibs on and had a great time. Even got a piece of homemade strawberry/rhubarb pie.

that's when is sunk in ... I am hill folk

They're great - thank you for asking!
We have a 7.9 earthquake and I somehow sleep right through it!  Only one drawer opened in the kitchen- so we did pretty well.  Granted it was a couple of hundred miles south of us.  It was the entire facebook feed this morning.  Feel like I missed out on a big event!  :-)

I imagine IF you attend this years gathering Carl would be more than happy to show his skills. But I understand that is a Big IF.
