  • Ocean is not a Standard Audioquest cable. Never heard of them and I have been a Audioquest dealer for over 14 years. Stick with the normal stuff. The Forest is a wonderful HDMI cable. Priced right and ready to go.
  • Napa Valley is where it's at for Cab's. California in general you really can't go wrong. The wine out there is so damn good. Cheap stuff but good quality is Boogle. They make awesome tasting wines at an amazingly affordable price. You can serve …
  • I was also very fond of the OM-5's. I'm sure if you search my old threads I'm sure I talked about the OM series and how well they did theater. We use to power them with B&K and Yamaha.

  • The OM9's are very musical. When powered correctly they can be a real pleasure to listen to. I Installed OM Mirage speakers for years and always thought they where so smooth clear, detailed and warm. They can be dynamic and if you where gonna buil…

  • I will say this, Subwoofer spec's never ever impress me. I have heard so many awesome spec'd subs that sound horrible. I don't care about the name on the sub or the spec's. When I sit down and calibrate a pair of subs into a room, I look for respon…
  • We use to sell Snell, what fantastic sounding speakers. Good luck with the sale

  • These sub's do not perform like a typical in wall sub woofer. They out perform most in room subwoofers. They are truly amazing despite how much they cost. In this Theater we did, we had 2 of them, dude I can't express how damn low they hit. I was j…
  • Bad idea , get on wall models.
  • Cleaning your car that you love is therapeutic in many ways. I enjoy spending the time.
  • Many years ago I strongly considered opening up my own detailing business but there just isn't a lot of money in it. Unless you have an array of car show and high end clients , the money simply isn't there. It's hard word and very time consuming.
  • I hear the rave over Adams products. I really wonder if they are any better then everything that has been made in the last 30 years? I don't go wrong or feel the need for better with Maguire's and Mothers stuff. I do use 3M and some other profess…
  • You get what you pay for. Buy cheap get cheap period.
  • Once you get your car detailed by a professional, it's much easier to keep up on it. Dirt doesn't stick to it like when you have no wax on your paint.

  • Man I know the LSI series is getting up in age now but man, someone is going to get one hell of a deal on a absolutely killer system. Man I wish I had somewhere to put them I would jump right on this. Your price is crazy awesome. Sorry to hear you…
  • The UIW RLS II's I have used many times. I've done some crazy killer theaters with them. They sound remarkably amazing with the right power behind them. I love Def Tech speakers I think they are the very best bang for your buck out there bare none.…

  • Even my engine always looks like this. I wipe it down every week when I wash it. It's just apart of how I do it. I wash , spray wax, vacuum, dust interior clean and condition leather as needed, Clean wheel lips , all door jams get wiped out and or …
  • It's just how I keep it all the time, I don't even like dust or a single bug splat on my windshield. My wife thinks there is something wrong with me as I'll go out into the garage and just give her a wipe down, spray wax, exterior windows or a vacu…

  • Moving is awesome and sucks at the same time. I purchased my home 14 years+ years ago, we built it brand new and I thought then" This is the last time I'm Moving!". As much as I would like a bigger better home , I still basically feel that way. …
  • Wireless sucks. It's a wonder it even works. I would not try to stream video wireless. Go hardwired always no matter what. If you can't get a wire somewhere I'm sure a local Installer can.
  • Thats what I was thinking. After I was told that I told them I would get back to them with a list of things I wanted to do. I'm gonna take my list elsewhere.
