  1. Not for a 100% electric like my Nissan Leaf! Stop and Go is best, because of regenerative braking! ;-) John Kuthe...

    its cheap, but is it that bad?

    Cheap bass equipment is the common thread. Selling more cheap bass equipment is the algorithm! Facebook is famous for it's Algorithm!! Facebook is really nothing more than an Advertising Medium! Ya wanna piss off Facebook? FBPurity.com!! John Kuthe...

    I remember years ago like early 1990's when on the Usenet newsgroup Rec.Boats.Paddle and people would post about Coleman canoes and everyone would start telling them how much better they could do and I'd be like, Well it beats standing on the shore wishing! John Kuthe...
  4. I got a red Warning tag on Baby II out front that my plates were expired and when I drove her down to Bel Nor to see what was up the other day, all that was running was one of my two Alpine amps, and not the big one running the sub! All I was hearing was my two PHD 5.25"ers and their tweeters up front!! Which sound great but naked without the support of the four 6x9s and the 12" sub! So I lulled Baby II into the three car garage out back, slid the carpeted 4x8 foot sheet of 3/4" ply back to get access to the stereo equipment pits, turned on the stereo gear and it all lit up! So I decided to try checking the two fuses in the back of the big amp, could not pull one out my hand but my tweaking make the amp work OK!! Sub and all!! Whew! Back to sounding GREAT!! The two PHDs really bring out the "front stage" nicely! :-) John Kuthe...

    How to make speakers sound good outside of truck?

    When I had those removable speaker cabinets in my 1969 VW Bug I had two 12V batteries electrically in parallel under the rear seat and I could pull the speakers out on 30 foot speaker wires and play them loud for hours and still be able to start my Bug! John Kuthe...
  6. Getting GOOD QUALITY speakers is the best way to drastically improve the sound you hear. John Kuthe...

    What happened to Car Audio Forum???

    I had some FUN with my inheritance too! Fun's all over now and I GOT the damned Occupancy Permit on this Shared Student Living house I bought, time to get back to work PART TIME to fund myself until I'm 65 and I will see what will be left in Social Security funds! Then I will have my Soc Sec AND student rental income as my retirement income! Pretty smart, eh? :-) John Kuthe...

    What happened to Car Audio Forum???

    Baby II's great! I hardly drive her since I almost always drive my 100% electric Nissan Leaf! But for some things when I DO drive Baby II like I went down to the Saint Francis River when some late Summer thunderstorms brought my fave local whitewater up in the Summertime! Yay!! And I was running the audio system pretty hard! And it NEVER cut out on me! Sometimes stuff overheads a little and I lose my sub from a thermal cutoff. But when it cools off it's fine. And it sounds pretty amazing! And remember at home I am listening to Klipsch La Scalas driven by a McIntosh 2105 Solid State power amp rated at about 105 WPC and the La Scalas are SO DAMNED EFFICIENT they would be loud out of a Walkman's headphone jack!

    What happened to Car Audio Forum???

    I've been in MacinTrash HELL and just got back on my old WinXP Pro PC and my old files, including my old Chrome Browser Bookmark file I had backed up to my hard drive with caraudio.com in the browser toolbar! My MacinTrash didn't have that, it's barely a computer. Or it certainly does not act like one! MacinTrashes act like GODDAMNED PHONE! And it's also a philosophic statement! John Kuthe...

    True, multiple attenuation controls (gain/volume adjustments) will all have their own sweet spots. Start midpoints and work around those by playing with ONE at a time and find the best balance among them. John Kuthe...

    You never really THOUGHT ABOUT PHYSICS??!! You are a DUMBSHIT!! We all exist in this tightly guided socially collective yet individually sensed sensory hallucination we collectively define as "Reality" and YOU never really thought about Physics? John Kuthe...
