Default Altec A2 VOTT / or how to blow your neighbors away....

Click the image to open in full size.

Got two brand new reconed JBL 2225's coming in a day or two.

Time to get everything up and running........ Except I've got to spend some $$ on my Sea-doo's .......... and that will slow me down a little. Just gave my wife a brand new kitchen so it's only fair to put some effort into dad's stuff now.

Four Altec 515's are next. Those will cost me about 200 each to recone. I think........ Need another amp, a Marshall half stack,
a couple more Titanium diaphragms to get another pair of JBL 2360 / 2446j's running, and maybe a new Roland Keyboard. Though for the money, I really like the new Yamaha MM6 I just bought.

That was my fee for doing the kitchen...........


Can't wait to get it all running.

Default Say what ?

As a matter of fact........ that's only half the room. There are four
JBL 4311 studio monitors (for Dolby 5.1 surround) and 2 of the 2360 / 2446j horns too. The ceiling isn't tall enough to put the horns on top. It's basically 20' x 20'. The other half of the garage is for the 1/24th scale slot car track.

I'm seriously thinking of ripping the roof off and putting a second
story on top of the entire garage. Then I could raise the first
floor ceiling (for the horns to go on top) and get a taller garage door so I can get the 210's out easier. With casters, they are about 7 and a half feet tall. The engineered trusses
alone will cost me more than 6 grand.

But it would be worth it. Double the space........ and the slot car track could go upstairs. The sound system could then have the entire 20' x 40' room. Which would help.

The definitive diagnoses from the absolute authority!

Now, all that is needed is for you to properly dispose of those in a SOTA facility. Unfortunately the only facility in North America that is equipped with a molecular disintegrator that can handle this daunting task is near Seattle. The postage will be enormous, but sound mental health is so much more important that you'll almost certainly thank me some day. Contact me ASAP, so we may begin your recovery!

Best Regards,
Dr. TerryO MDD (Molecular Disintegrator Dilettante)
