What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

It happened to us a while back. The lightning creates a huge pulse on the pump wires (88 feet) and trips the breaker. It didn't hit the pump house pit.

I did not get this today, but we did finally get 9's in the Taurus SHO I tune this past Sunday in Indy.

 

 

If I would have known you all were in town I would have came out to the strip.

Do you have an adequate ground rod in place for your well house?

Well has no house per-si, Locally they use a fake rock cover which is what I have. it is a 2 wire pump with an equipment ground that does run to the main breaker box which does have 2 ground rods.  Investigating Via the internet it seems a LOT of well pump failure comes from lightning and ground rods are not a guarantee they report even surge protectors dont always save the pumps.  Appreciate the thoughts though......................I may put one in closer to the well its like 30.00 and if it saves the pump once its worth while

No breaker tripping here just pump failure. Doesnt affect the wiring at all either. Well is like 80 feet deep in sand all the way down. I almost feel like the strike is hitting the WET ground and reaching the water table thus killing the pump. Sand for soil will allow rain water to go DEEP into the ground.   I tested resistance on all 3 wires the all are the same they all have great continuity. I would think if a surge powerful enough to kill the pump the wires would show some damage.

Fair enough. I've got a ~90ft radio tower, so I certainly see my fair share of lightning strikes on the property. I've got separate ground rods for all of my structures, the tower has its own ground rod, ceramic insulators, etc.

In 1950 after having watched a blue 6 inch diameter lightning ball travel down a 5/8 Inch thick lightning rod cable through a window glass (no damage to the glass) then through a cloths dryer (burned up dead)  and into the basement through the floor to the sewer pipe (tracks) I sometimes wonder about the value of the lightning rods on the roof. I do understand that Mr. Lightning does what he wants whenever he wants.

That would have been cool! Everything was very last minute. We ran in Denver and found oiling issues and lost a motor. The next day, we went to Vegas for a few days and then when we got back, he had a 2-day drive back to Atlanta. From there, he needed a new motor, new clutch, and a few other things. I had plane tickets with insurance and we didn't know until the day before that it was going to be reality. The new motor had not even been tested, but was sent it anyway! It was 2 weeks between events... He extremely determined! 

 

I do look forward to what we do in the future. I am hoping to make this my career and quit my day job. I've been tuning for probably 15 years, but only recently made it a business and feel like I am finally in a position in life to take the leap... But it would be awesome!

My previous subs have been RSW-12 and RT-10D. The JTR is in another league altogether. The only comparison I can make would be when I lived in Japan I had a  Nissan Silvia that made 300whp and was rear-wheel drive and then purchased a 530whp awd Skyline GT-R. Both the GT-R and the JTR were leaps forward in performance over what they replaced. The pressure the JTR creates in the house is simply insane. I plan on getting one more :)

Added another piece to my display cabinet, AKA, the reason my fun-account keeps getting depleted, cabinet. Can’t complain too much, I am loving the hunt!

In those days, tweeters were an add-on attached to an L-bracket by a single screw.  It was easy to knock them out of square.

After a year of research on 2 channel amps, getting my purchase criterion together and budget, I have been chasing a Parasound A23. Several have been available at $850 to $1,300 Canadian to my house. Given my strong preference to buy in person, no deals and in fact none in Calgary. Then, yesterday one pops up on Canada Audio Mart for $650. I jumped and met the seller, a very nice brand new music grad, and got the amp. Young man has a really nice recording studio with all kinds of great gear and instruments. Perfect scenario! It pays to be patient.

 

Edit:  Same guy just posted a completed ACA on local Kijiji and a set of powered Dynaudio monitors.  He must be cleaning house!  He had a set of custom horn fronts and custom 12 inch sub, as well as a pair of "expensive" JBL monitors on stands.  Along with 2 pianos, guitar and violin, plus Hypex Ncore amps (he convinced them to make a set for him!), DSP and mixing boards.  All this behind a door that looked like a closet.  Diffusers and and absorption panels he had made on walls, ceiling and floor.  Not sure what else he might have to sell, but I am pretty sure I saw an older Parasound 6 channel amp in a corner too.  Yikes.

Grabbed a couple new pieces for my cabinet! Any Code 3 fans out there?

I know Code 3 no longer has Star Wars rights but that is a real shame, these things are beautiful!af1868832e741ae55c346268212ad0f8.jpg856ed3f235432163beffe5384be652fa.jpg
