    Are these the same as what I heard at your old place?

    I don't remember you hearing a pair of 6311, but these are the same ones I owned. You heard the Mini X.

    I heard those if you had them. I recall comparing them to the minix

    you heard the usher 6381's along with the mini dancer 2 at my house.

    That’s right

    @jonicont.... sorry, but I have to ask... who in their right mind hangs a cutout of a Mustang II on their wall? :p;)

    Custom piece from an artist named Ben Lamb. He does a lot of Rock and movie themed pieces. Also happens to be the bass player for Lydia Loveless. https://www.etsy.com/shop/3rdShiftDesigner/items

    That's the songwriter sitting in the car. It's 3 dimensional

    I liked them about 6" off axis from my ears. I also liked them more when my ears were level with the woofer.

    My ears sit a bit higher than most people when listening. I’m 6’ 3” and sit kinda high up in the wheelchair compared to an able bodied person sitting lower in a recliner or on a couch. ;)

    I will keep adjusting as best I can to get great results.

    These speakers look fantastic. The finish is smooth as glass. They had some smudges and spots on them when they got here but I used Über rinseless car wash, mixed with distilled water, applied with a Chemical Guys microfiber towel.

    Wondering if any of the past owners put a coat of auto wax on these? @vcwatkins @kharp1 Perhaps the original owner Craig got them from on eBay?

    I talked to Dave @daboyz and he just used a damp cloth.

    I bought them used in South Carolina. Don't think the original owner did anything. I generally use a dry microfiber cloth. It's possible I used a bit of the Gibson guitar polish; not certain.

    My preferred placement was a bit wider than usual (probably close to an equilateral triangle) and toed in to a few degrees outside of direct line (a few feet behind listener's noggin). I did not try adjusting up/down and never got around to adding weight.

    Nice rig, enjoy!

    That's a wonderful product, especially on the piano black found on the LSI lineup. m543ukmroi00.jpg

    Hahaha I dont have my glasses on and I thought it said "Pimp Polish"!

    Not to be confused with Pimp Oil. Your car could be clean and detailed but it wasn't complete until you applied some Pimp Oil. gihgekcowrzs.jpg

    Most points scored on a Monday Night game...ever. It was a blast! Mahomes was off a tad and that's one reason they lost. But the LA referees called some BS calls to help the Rams but the RAMS did fight like heck to win too.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
