Love is when she licks your butthole and try's to kiss you and u smack her but she doesn't get mad because she know that nasty and she in the wrong
Fuck me running. Even I wouldnt eat stripper snatch.
I would rather beat you to death with a garden rake then talk politics with you due to your overwhelming ignorance.
A three legged hooker walks into a bar. Yadda Yadda Yadda, I ended up sucking a dick.
When that hooker turns out to have a cock. That's bigger than yours.

Awwwwww, yeahhhh. Plexi time.

 

Clean work!


Saying "clipping doesn't kill speakers" is a half-truth at best. Technically no, clipping itself does not hurt the speaker. But in clipping your amp, you can easily create a situation that WILL kill the speaker. Was the squared waveform the DIRECT cause of the failure? No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

Thank you, sir...It is coming together nicely. Hopefully I'll have the rack and equipment all wired-up this week. Trim panel and subwoofer enclosure to follow...

 

...I do have a lil trick in mind for this install...stay tuned.

Yep, I'm tuned in for the double MASS reveal. That is going to sound incredible.

Looking very clean. You should bring it down to this show:

21st Annual Sanford Sound Show & Shine & 3X NADBL

 

I just may...I would really like to attend some of the local shows/meets. The DIYMA crowd just had a meet this weekend...I didn't go this time but plan to next time. I would really like to meet some good local tuners....I'm pretty good at the install aspect and can tune OK by ear...but I would really like to get into REW a bit more and get a more finite analysis of what's going on. This will be a 5.1 install...I've never tuned a surrounf system before so that will be interesting.

I went to a DIYMA meetup 5 or 6 years back and there are some VERY good builds around. Not so many at the Sanford show but it's a killer show all around and you'll meet fellow enthusiasts in the area.
