    Astronomers See a Star's Final Scream Into a Black Hole Halfway Across The Universe

    A Worthy Antenna

    So...some eight years after I started this thread, I believe I have a worthy FM antenna. There were some signal artifacts at first, but I slipped the antenna UNDER the tuner, so the signal is "buffered."

    I Thought I Was Testing A Speaker...

    I took them to over twenty watts once - tried to be conservative since they were on loan. They were very clean-sounding...but my normal listening levels are more reasonable, at least I think so.

    I Thought I Was Testing A Speaker...

    I Thought I Was Testing A Speaker...

    I got to the point on my Jensen resto/mod where I had all drivers mounted in one cabinet. Things still to do: install acoustic fill, add mass to the rear baffle...and later (maybe) change the lytics in the crossover to films.
