Quest center channel speaker, 6 dollars. A little surprising. I knew I had to buy it when I needed two hands to pick it up. The woofer code is 200 so not sure who makes it.

200w rated? Only once...

Saw a KEF kht1005.2 system in a shop today, £80.

I'll be taking the drivers and crossovers from the satellites to make a boombox if I'm not satisfied with the one I'm currently working on.
Wait, who am I kidding. There's always room for one more boombox.

The subwoofer is currently residing under my bed for HT effects - its joining a 12" sealed JBL sub already in there.

Always.

Chris, you're one of those young energetic types, maybe see if you can find who has been given the 200 speaker code, no luck at this end. I have Googled sites like this but maybe I'm not looking deep enough:

More Codes

I'm struggling to find any relevant results from Google on the speaker itself, though the Images results gives one woofer that looks similar to yours.

I'll keep poking around, though I suspect whoever it was is long gone...


I've also recently bought a Behringer 31 band graphic eq, and a Samson Servo 550 amplifier. The latter was ~£90 delivered, so I jumped on it. Similar models (of lower spec) were on buy-it-now for >£100.

7m of aluminium angle, some screws, and a cheapy junior hacksaw.

Heading outside to make some progress with the current boombox.

Not today, but over the past few months....

A Swedish-made Sandvik 225 hacksaw for a couple of bucks at a flea market. Cuts flush like my trusty Klein, but weighs much less and doesn't need a screwdriver to change blades.

A bunch of DVDs from a video store that was closing down, priced around $2 each. Music related films included the documentary "So Wrong They're Right" about 8-track tape enthusiasts, a drama about Muslim punk rockers, "The Taqwacores", and "Roadie", the 1980 comedy starring Meat Loaf and featuring various live acts including Blondie and Alice Cooper.

Behringer Xenyx802 mini mixer, new in box from a garage sale, $25. I've been wondering what it would take to run it from 12V DC.

At computer recyclers in the Big City, an Audigy 2 drive bay module for $15 (front panel S/PDIF I/O, MIDI, 1/4" mic and headphone, RCA line ins, and Firewire), and a backup Audigy 2 ZS for $5.

A one week holiday in the Scottish Highlands.
Did my first Monro in over 30years. Did another and two tops in the same day.
I'm now a mix of strawberry red and walnut brown. Didn't take any sun block with me.
I now know one can get 7 days of continuous sunshine in the north west.
