    F4U-5?
    Oh, I have no idea. It just came across my computer somehow and I thought I'd share it. I kinda dig the photo.

    Tom

    Certainly appears to be some flavor of F4U Corsair, given the wing design :|

    This one is an F4U-4. The one Tom posted is the -5 bird. That would be the last full production version. It was twin supercharged and had nearly 2500HP.

    Does anybody wonder, in times like these, what would Sam say?

    @Tony M I like the design of these NHT towers, I'd like to hear these.

    I like how you can place them straight, and they're already toed in to the correct angle! Perfect!

    I sure wish we all lived closer to one another.

    I do have this pair sitting on the dolly backwards from how they'd be set up in front of you. This is a SMALL set compared to others they made but still sound really good!

    They have the NHT sound signature. Warm. ;) Detailed highs, soft midrange but TIGHT and POWERFUL BASS. B)

    I used to go into a fairly big Pawn shop years ago. In one corner of the BIG room shop was the electronics dept. They had some BIG NHTs with the reg. rectangular shape playing all day long, every day. They had subs on their sides like the ones above do.

    Those BIG NHTs at the Pawn shop filled that shop with powerful sounding music. Even though it was at a low volume, I loved their sound. I couldn't afford their asking price for them the many years I visited that shop.

    Years later, I bought my NHT whole system with a Pioneer Elite receiver off of Craig's list. I have a 12" sub and 2 little bookies and a center channel too.

    I used to think the NHTs were big/tall towers but when I put those JBLs next to them, my memory and opinion was crushed. :s They look med. size now. There is an 8" sub with a rubber surround on their sides. :)

    I think NHT is like Definitive in sound but Def. Tech has a more pronounced midrange. But the rest...pretty even. :p

    My brother owns five of the original NHT Super Ones. He bought them new in the late 1990's I'm guessing. He also bought a Velodyne sub at the same time. He used the five NHT's for front, center, right and rears, as a 5.1 system. I've never heard them. He used them for less than a year, then boxed it all up. No issues with anything. They had a child, moved and never set anything back up. They still remain boxed to this day. Must run in the family. I have two brand new subs both NIB, a Polk 505 and an Epik Empire, both never opened or unboxed. I guess I'm jinxed with subs as the two I have apparently have high failure rates. But I may never know! ;)

    I stated I had a 12" NHT sub yesterday. I was wrong. :s It's a 10".

    I re-arranged my back room some more last night and moved that sub. I thought I'd remove the grill and look at the cone. :o I then measured it knowing it wasn't a 12" cone anymore. I still need to test it again.

    I also have a Polk 505 and Polk PSW111. They both worked last year or two years ago. Now...? :)

    I've had a fantastic older Velodyne powered sub. I sold it to an old co-worker for peanuts. B) I think it was a 12" with a slotted cabinet. That thing kicked butt!
