Haven’t had a day off in like 2 weeks
pushed the amperage/current a wee bit TOO much thru the Pioneer amps and Paradigm tower speakers........smoke, sparks and distortion and ultimate speaker failure...............was playing an old school version of See You In Hell by 80's metal band GRIM REAPER
not pissed off. EPIC EPIC performance..........this is the second set of Paradigm's i've blown out, same song
want to upgrade to McIntosh Mono Blocks anyways......
Well there's your first issue they're pioneers
I've always gone with Polk Audio. Even the lower end t-15 and tsi-100's can handle their own, even at full blast. I think, and please don't quote me on this, they're guaranteed not to blow. The highs and mids are next to perfection. In not sure about the bigger polks for bass, but I used a sub for that.
Nah y'all are doing it wrong. Get you a pair of old Cerwin Vega AT-15's and make sure you wrap the fuses in a protective layer of aluminum foil.
Nah speakers are Paradigms, were $1500 back in the day....,. Amp is pioneer, it’s been rock solid for 2 decades now ( except for the massive cooling fan, I’ve replaced that a couple times)
my dream setup is two 2000 watt McIntosh Mono Blocks, McIntosh pre amp, Kalista DreamPlay CD player and Magnepan 30.7 speakers
but i need about a half million for that..........
I have no idea what y'all are talking about.
You sound like the kids talking about cell phone crap.
But then again, the factory speakers in my 56 Bel Air did just fine with the AM radio.
in my EARLY 20's, long before I started getting hardcore about knives and gear........I was a bike courier. I rode like 200+ KMa day for crap wages. The only goal at the end of the day was food......and BEER and loud music, live shows, or nightclubs.
One of my friends (RIP) was a salesmen at a hifi store here in vancouver. He let me play my tapes and CD's on the Plus $10,000 stereo gear and speakers , after hours.........
it was there that i developed a love of high end sound equipment...$10,000 speakers, $25,000 speakers, pre amps and amps and tube amps the size of apt stoves.......stuff I will never afford but I sure did appreciate.
I reference McIntosh Mono Blocks a lot........ once you have tried to lift one (they are hundreds of pounds......) and once you play classical music thru one and thru a pair of $25,000 speakers.......you get it......
it starts becoming an obsession....
I may never own a set of monoblock amps and huge wall size magnet ribbon speakers.....but that first taste of REAL sound...........consumes me.
If it makes you feel better, I probably will never own them either.
Katsura Japanese maple starting to leaf out
New pouches means a day of reorganization....
Day camp pouch. I attached the work sharp with shock cord since it won't really fit inside. (the esee patch looks at home on it)
Last resort pouch, pretty much a just in case pouch.
Camp bag, just to lighten up my backpack. Not sure it'll fit around my waist but I may get a Janus pouch to attach to it also. Need to get some molle locks and a tek loc to attach the 3 and fire kit.
Stanley Cook set with a variety of coffee and water flavoring.
Footage of the Funeral Procession of Reservist Nathan Cirillo, who died standing Honor Guard at Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier, after being shot by with a rifle by an assailant. The War Memorial / Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier is in Ottawa Canada. Cirillo was (is always) a member of the Canadian Armed Forces.
I met Nathan Cirillo before this horrific attack, though i never knew it at the time. I had truck issues and he pulled ahead of me on the highway and walked back, asking if i needed anything....turns out a faulty fuel gauge was to blame. Cirillo gave me a ride back to the gas station and I pulled out $20 and was about to pay the attendant for fuel.. (pre-pay here). Nathan Cirillo said "I got this man", put his card into the gas pump and bought $20 in fuel for me.
three years later.....Canada lost several Soldiers on home turf.........including Cirillo......standing Honor Guard.
Canada's Highway Of Hero's - Cirillo's funeral procession homecoming.
yea its old footage.....still hits close to home.
nice setup man.....whats the orange LED light?
Thanks. It's a J5 tactical, goes for about $12 on Amazon. 300 lumens, adjustable, and weatherproof. Plus thousands of good reviews.
Damn, that's so sad
i just noticed opinel's logo - two in the pink and one in the stink
Got told by this old timer (for my business he’s old) about how great he is and that if I weld for another 30yrs I’ll never get as good as he is today. These are his verticals. I asked him how he snuck a pigeon into the building to let them **** all over the steel. He didn’t like that too much.
