  1. I miss my '95 2-door Tahoe "Sport". Best rolling listening room I ever owned.
  2. Funny story about a Faraday Cage. Back in the 70's and 80's my dad worked for the city of Dayton in the radio dept. They installed and repaired cop and fire dept. radios, radar and other electronics. One day my dad is working inside the cage when one of the cops walks in and asks, "what are you doing in there?" My dad tells him that the cage blocks radio frequencies so he can work on the radio. The cop paused for a moment and then asked, "then why am I able to hear you talking out here?"
  3. Let's see who's really committed to their cause.
  4. The car in space reminds me of the opening to the movie "Heavy Metal"
  5. It’s the very rare Extended Cab Stang-Chero
  6. We call it thinning the herd.
  7. That's how door safety glass breaks. It shatters into a million tiny pieces so there are no large pieces of glass flying around inside the cab slicing everyone up. The windshield is different. It has 2 layers of glass with a layer of soft transparent silicone like material sandwiched in between to keep glass from flying everywhere.
  8. I would be seriously worried if that cat ever crossed my path.
  9. There's a special place in hell reserved just for Mr. Barney.
  10. What kind of a moron lets their puppy ride on the dash?
  11. Three dollar and me love you long time?
  12. It's you that is makiing things complicated by making statements about a topic you obviously don't fully understand. Impedance changes with frequency. Resistance does not. A speaker may be rated at 4 ohms but the load it presents to the amp doesn't remain at 4 ohms at all frequencies. A typical 4 ohm speaker can have an impedance as high as 100 or more ohms at resonance. That same speaker can also dip below 4 ohms at some frequencies. This is why you cannot measure impedance with a DMM. Amps do NOT need to see a DC resistance to operate correctly because they drive a speaker which has impedance, reactance and inductance to consider. A simple DMM cannot take all these factors into account when taking a reading.
