  1. Not what i meant by that. What i meant was the fuse block melting showed me the short comings of the pvc jacket being soft enough to allow it to compress enough to allow a short to happen. Just poorly worded.
  2. Truth is, most are buying a company brand vs. a CCA or OFC cable. I myself buy welding cable for very specific reasons not related to car audio itself, i went and got the car audio cable with pvc jacket covering it and almost caught my car on fire from a melted fuse block where the jacket almost pressed through on a corner. From that point on i would never touch another pvc jacketed wire again as it can press through the jacket over time on a rounded or square corner, i will use something with a much sturdier jacket that can take some abuse.
  3. When you go to a movie in apple tv you will see the dolby sign with dolby atmos on it along the top row (Genre) EDIT: My whole reason to get the apple tv was to eliminate the dvd collection and have everything stored somewhere else. lol
  4. I have apple 4k tv and buy and rent a lot of movies on itunes and the rentals start at $ .99 and up, they also have low cost 4k movies for sale that change from time to time. They usually change on wednesdays for rentals with a different movie as a weekly special. EDIT: They also have an atmos section of movies to choose from.
  5. That looks totally badass and i bet sounds just as badasss. Which onkyo? I currently have the RZ810 and a coworker has the RZ610, and we both love the receiver. Tons of clean power, but i listen to a lot of music so i primarily use the Luxman R-117 for that duty. I also have a set of klipsch RF82's i use and will one day get the klipsch atmos setup.
  6. Believe it or not, a lot of music is soft clipped which will give a false positive of being hard clipped, and there is no way of knowing unless you see it on a scope.
  7. Are you going off the clipping light on your remote knob? Removing the knob will solve your clipping issue. lol Keep upping the volume until you begin to smell something, that is a sure fire way of knowing 1) it is clipping 2) new subs are breaking in, and smoke means your shit is about to die a horrible death.
  8. Rewire the sub for 2 ohm and try that out and see if anything changes. You have gone back through your wiring and connections, so it is worth a shot to see if something changes, cause if you can't go full tilt @.5 then 2 ohms should be louder and cleaner.
  9. That movie was phenomenal. The live aid concert at the end was amazing.
  10. When the PSU takes a shit just as i was about to start a gaming session and 5 hours away from the PC shop opening.
  11. I think his new amps are going for 8k +, not often you can say someone designs and personally builds in house like tony does. I'm talking about amplifies here.
  12. I would have ripped em all to wave if it could have been tagged, years ago, so i kinda put it off for a long time and finally decided to go with flac's lossless for the ability to tag them. And yes i am back to buying cd's again and buying ones not released in the US is pricey, even though discogs typically have it. Airwave - I want to believe CD costed 52 bux, but it was worth it. Infected Mushroom Viscous Delicious was 45.00
  13. Ripping CD's to my PC, while mp3 is nice, i'm finally going to rip everything in FLAC.
  14. I almost got a pro till i found out they only do 4k games and nothing else, so that was a deal breaker for me.
  15. ^^^ I wouldn't want to know who or what your roomy banged before you decided to try that switcheroo. Putting someone's ass fluid on your dick isn't the brightest idea. Or they could even have had an STD. lol
  16. If it is a closed cell foam, then yes it is water proof. Be careful though as you can alter the sound of your speaker by adding foam directly behind a speaker, think of speaker baffles, great idea but they really do hinder the performance of the speaker. Car audio speakers are meant to get wet, every car leaks water in the doors, it is just a fact of life, some more than others.
  17. My 2001 ford focus had both front and rear cradles rotting out, but not quite to that point, so i did a full suspension replacement along with both cradles.
  18. Even online when you get to lens, the cost goes up fast. I almost said no to the progressive lenses, but said screw it as i'll be wearing them most of the time now. Don't think for a second i wasn't telling myself, you only have one set of eyes, trying to justify spending that much. lol After paying for vision for 7 years i finally thought to myself it is time to use it for a change, and my older glasses i got 11 years ago just aren't cutting it anymore anyway.
