Re: Your best ever car radio?

By the way...the sub from the car is now in the house. I built a custom enclosure for it and it's a part of my PC audio system now. The FET-500 is pushing around 800 watts into it. The guy on Ebay who lost the auction for that speaker was somebody . What would Dr. Bruce have done with it? https://ww...

Re: Your best ever car radio?

YOu say all this without hearing.....Must be great to know it all without actually sitting in the vehicle. There are 12 and 18 speakers systems out there too. Tell us how they sound without ever having heard them. Yep...there are things that physics allow you to predict. THIS is my Guru, Richard Cl...

Re: Your best ever car radio?

Yikes? Built in sub woofer, 10 speakers, great separation and sound....It rocks! Ten speakers? That's a comb filter disaster. Only auto manufacturers do that. Yes...yikes, the idea is to do it with as few drivers as possible: physical arrival time issues cannot be fixed completely with DSP. Ten spe...

Yep, better stay where you are. Serious... It's you guys. (I'm the guy in marpat that you'll never see, the guy way off the trail, who's stealing orchids.) They had no real idea where they were moving to, and still think I'm joking about their local lake effect snow. Bob was chased off his back por...

He did, I was down at his shop last week. The 1954 VW Barndoor Panel was in the garage. Clark at VWoA still has Bob work on the fleet... The Telefunken van? Yep, and the Orange 21 is in his garage too. Watch out for the bears.... The Ellis' are "flatland people" as I like to call them and this is a...

Re: Your best ever car radio?

A 59 used Sapphire radios as stock, not Blaupunkt. They were a popular aftermath option. Those guys are the VW experts... I kinda hate them and their inability to control camber but the radios were neato. The restos for VW of America were all done at my sister's house. What era radios? Sapphire or ...

Re: Entercom hit with ransomware attack

Radio has more than it's share of Luddite morons; this is to be expected.

Back your stuff up and don't use named drives.

Re: How do you measure success?

It's a simple question. Turkeytop seems to understand the concept, others too. For me it's having a meaningful relationship with my lovely wife, happy independent educated children, and enough free time to smell the roses and do good in this world. What does a successful life look like for you? Bea...

He gets hired because he's brilliant but gets fired because he's a tremendous asshole. It's a pattern with John.

Re: Your best ever car radio?

It can sound good. Remember the inventor of FM touted the fact you could tell the difference between the sound of a crosscut saw or a rip saw. I think that qualifies as good. You can do that with a phone... Phones often lack bass response, FM tuners themselves do not. Phones operate in a passband f...
