  1. Devin made me a playlist with one of those Tiny I-pod MP3 for the gym. I heard of BVB but I thought they were a teen punk pop band. Man this song is F**kin' killer for working out to. This song sort of sounds like a mix Bon Jovi's rhythm and chanting rear vocals, mixed with A7F's guitar riffs. -Frank
  2. Travis Tollet, the first quadrapalegic to make it up Pikes Peak, passed away today after living with a C6 and C7 fracture that left him paralyzed. Bad deal man. He ended up winning a few UTV championships Well some good news. The surgery was long and they were able to stabilize the fractures remove 3 disks. Next surgery will be to stabilize the rear portion of the vertebrae. The surgeon said the cord is bruised with swelling but not severed. -Frank
  3. Spinal Cord Injuries!!!! Just found out today Lisa's cousin Jarred Williams #949 raced in Baltimore today. Somehow he wrecked and suffered a spinal cord injury. He was rushed to the hospital and "could not feel his legs". Lisa has layman's terms-limited information -as of now. Last bit of info from the family was -he has a C6-C7 injury was rushed to surgery. This tells me the fracture was unstable and there's cord compression. Even with stabilization, there is no guarantee of neurological restoration. All smart ass comments aside please say a prayer for Jarred. This saddens me beca
  4. Back to listening to almost all rock now. Love this band. -Frank
  5. Just bought a Samsung S6 and I'm scared to use it til I get a case for it. -Frank
  6. Funny story, 2 yrs ago I took the kids to Charlie's Steakhouse and told Devin they if someone wants to date her have him take you to a fancy place like this. I told Christian if he took a date to a place like this I'll kick his ass for wasting his $$$. They asked why the difference? "That's just how life is. Devin, if he likes you he'll take you period!". Well since Devin is now single Lisa overheard Devin telling this new kid "I've been to would like to go back to Texas De Brazil". Hahahaha. Wow she actually listens to me!!!!!! -Frank
  7. Since I posted up about setting the Crossfire EQ and didn't get any input I went ahead and started looking at a AudioSource RTA-1 because I am really wanting to have a SQ system. It has a calibrated mic right on the top of it. Yeah kinda corny to buy one for the every day Joe, but what the hell. It should arrive next wk. -Frank
  8. Eyeing a Kenwood M.A.S.K. on Ebay now. 6 Days left. From what I am seeing, this might be the last series before the change to a dual motorized face like the Pioneer DEH-P960MP I had. I'm going for 1 for every year if I can find them. When purchasing these units, I am starting to see a pattern.....no wiring harness in the auction. No lit screen to see lit up. And "No turn" when I receive it and plug in my harness. Maybe still a coincidence. lol. Come on, the cheapest harness is $4.60 or best offer w/free shipping. My bet is this unit does not work. lol. That just bothers me!!!!! -F
  9. Holy Crap! Look at how your board compares to a Older Rockford Fosgate 800a2. 960W x 1 @ 4 Ohm Class ab, looks very similar !!!!! Found this as well. This is claimed. No certificate to visually prove it. Brand New Bare (internal board only) Rockford Fosgate 700s (883 watt rms) I was trying to post this earlier but it said I had less than 5 posts and that it could be spam so I'm just posting the item number so you can check it out: 280161929368. It is just the amp itself with no casing. It is a brand new rockford fosgate 700s with certificate of 883 watts rms. Good for a custom
  10. The subs could also have unloaded because the prior owner may have tried tp play lower then tuning. I love buying HX2's in sealed boxes. I'm always leary of ported HX2's. But that's just me! -Frank
  11. Cool. Those tinsel leads are alittle on the short side if you chose to repair it. If the lead broke at the post you can push the post forward to make up any length loss, or unsolder the leads, remove the nut that holds the post. Remove the post, you'll find the posts are screwed in with a phillips screw. Loosen and spin the post around so the tinsel part of the post is now closer to the spider than retighten the phillips and reinstall the posts. This will give you about 1/4" inch advantage if you need it. I had to do this to the Power Hx2 I had. I reconed it, but it rubbed. when I cut the
  12. Nice score on the subs! People on here will tell you back in the early 2000's these things were awesome. 3" voice coils. 500W RMS. They get pretty loud. I had several of them. I just sold 4 of my D2 version. I installed 2 D4 12s' in my gf's daugther's truck. I still have 3 D4 sitting here right now. One word of advise. check the ohms of the coils as well as seeing that the coils are shiny copper. These things can definitely take a beating so just check to make sure. Mine all read 4.1-4.2 Ohm per coil. Check the spiders as well. If they are alittle depressed that's ok, since they are b
  13. Nah, she'll be fine with it. I'm going to bring the power tower to Play it Again and sell it for $15 or so just to move it. -Frank
  14. Yeah, I should have said semi commercial since the under $500 models super flimsy. This one as you know is solid and didn't vibrate or have the belt hang up. If the motor goes there should be sort of motor that they still make for it.
  15. Did some Xmas shopping. Lisa kept bugging me for a treadmill for the past few weeks. Picked up a used Proform Xp 550S from Play it Again Sports for $140! As usual, someone bought this thing and never used it!!! This thing is mint. Original cost was $599.99 in 2000.(equivalent to $847 inflation rate). It's their mid level unit in their line up. It received great reviews on line. I just hope she uses it like the power tower she wanted last year "Babe so I can work out my abs". (Eyes rolling) If I go upstairs right now I know I will find dust on the power tower. lol. Just stoked I got
  16. That "eureka" moment that you realize there is a market for just about anything. CL is killing my Old school pawn shop/Ebay side gig. So I have to look for other ways to have paypal $ to buy on Ebay. It hit me the other day. I went to LKQ to get an antenna base for Devin's truck. My neighbor used bondo to keep the antenna together when he sold it to me. Well, last week it finally broke while Devin was driving. What I noticed at LKQ- there were so many trucks, but very few antennas. "Hmmm, this must be a replaceable item??" Well, it only cost me $2.44. Ebay sells used ones for $29 ship
  17. Scored a Semi-Old School (2001) Kenwood KDC-MP8017. Has the "M.A.S.K" theft deterrent system. Paid $40 with mounting cage. Arrived not working. M.A.S.K systems were notorious for ribbon failures. Purchased and installed a replacement ribbon for $13.00...and she turned on! Had to do research to break the security code. Used Devin's remote. It worked! The only down side is, the particular model is manually opened, non motorized!!! I thought they all were! She only has 1.8V RCA's, but how cares. I like the Bass/Mid/High control, and custom Song/Title naming feature. I don't want dolph
  18. I paid off most of my c.c debt a few months ago. I was sitting on about $880 just to show credit. I thought I was still paying $106 a month. Thinking "Ok, it will be paid off in a few months. Than I happen to see the monthly withdrawal go from $106, to $60, and now $35 a month. I look at the new balance and it was $932.55. WTF?! I have automatic withdrawal?! Discover was just skimming the monthly to go towards interest only. So, I went ahead and paid it off! Bastards!!!!!! Completely c.c. debt free for now at least. -Frank
  19. When working in the ER, this is what I tell my patients. It drives me insane when patients take off their footwear and the aroma starts. "Can I take off my boots?" I tell them "If your feet stink, please leave them on". They look at me like "A$$***e!". People believe it's only the fungus that stinks. They also feel buying new socks, even new boots/sneakers will remedy the situation. NOPE! I won't. It's actually the bacteria on your skin that make the odor that you are not addressing. If my patients do decide to take off their footwear, I *make it a point* and give them the info I
  20. The woofer should be getting most of the power since it has the bigger motor. Most tweeters are rated at 25-50W. Some even at 100W crossovered at X frequency, but the way the crossover is, all those caps, and resistors cut into the power as it reaches the tweeter itself. I'd say 65/35 split. I'm no expert by any means, just giving my 0.02 cents. You can always do a reading on the wiring coming out of the crossover with a DMM. -Frank
  21. I really want to snowboard this winter. 2 yrs ago, I sent $1600 for a weekend in NYC and all we got to see was the lower east side and part of Central Park. That was way too much for a spur of moment vacation. A trip from Tampa to Cataloochee Ski Resort, Maggie Valley,NC would cost $1500 for all 4 of us....and that's driving 12 hrs. Just too much to spend especially with the holidays coming up. It's cheaper to be up there for 13 to see all of NYC....and snowboard. -Frank
  22. Work has been iffy lately. Local hospitals have been hiring new people and signing travel nurses for this coming winter season. Sorta pushing me out of job. I've been picking up shifts out of Hillsborough County to make $$$. I thought it would be a good idea to re-instate my NY state nursing license. "Just in case" Now I'm getting bombarded with calls and emails to do contracts in NYC. I'd love to go back to The Big Apple. Latest offer "$1416/wk with apt/security garage or $2300/wk but I find my own place. $5k completion bonus after 13 wks on top of that!!". Lisa can stay with me
