Hi Guy,

Nice to see you over here again, it's been a while. I see you are still active over at the green site.

Nice to see your set up again.

Where is the car racing set?

Why haven't you filled all the 210's with your JBL drivers? (oh wait, you explained that in your thread)

We want to see the whole thing up and running by March.

If not we're going to ban you from this site

Your old pal Cal.

Default Racetrack

Hey Cal,

what's happening? Yeah, I haven't been here in awhile. Just starting to really get back into music. 'Been playing the guitar a little. Thinking about getting my kids a set of drums. Should fit in nicely out there...... What do you think of the huge Peavey MB1 mid-bass horns ? They are HUGE for a set of mids.... I bought them without ever hearing them in the past. Didn't even fire them up when I saw them. The man said they worked fine and he wanted a hundred bucks apiece. Each one has a 12" Black Widow in it, but it takes that woofer and blows it into a horn. Kind of weird.... At first glance, it looks like the largest compression driver you've ever seen in your life. Got them crossed from 125Hz to 1.2kHz. Made the mid-bass very snappy and in-your-face. Sometimes I have to throttle them down 'cause they are so dam efficient. I'm still experimenting, but it's starting to come together. Should be 100% up and running in a couple of months. Might get some TAD 4001's, and now that I've got the Peavey mids, I can try to get some better low end out of the 210's.

The slot car track is gone. I was one month from being officially divorced and I sold it. It's now in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The guy built a business around it and has people pay to race on it.
I miss it bad. It was the largest privately owned track in the world. 240' long. 4 lane. 1/32 or 1/24th scale w/ digital timing accurate to .001 sec. It sat on seven 4x8 tables and no matter what I did, there was no way to get the entire track in just one photo.

Default 210's

The 210 cabinets fit pretty nice under the track eh?

Might as well have tunes while you race............

Default A little warped..........

If I had more room I would have kept the dual 18" sub cabinets,
but my better half said something had 2 go. You can see how tall they are compared to my 4WD Jeep Liberty.

Isn't it amazing what computers can do to an ordinary photo?

I remember the original pic, you're right, that is neat. Is that your brother in-law in the pic?

Default His quack does echo ?

Hey Cal,

yeah it's him. He and my sister were on MSNBC yesterday, and I think they're on some other show today. Did you catch his new series - "Wanted - Ted or Alive" on OLN (the Outdoor Life Network) ??? It was o.k., but not as good as the "Surviving Nugent" shows on VH1 and MTV. There's another "Ted or Alive" coming out soon that looks a little better.

I asked him once what he carries for protection..........

I remember when he lived at his old house, there was a room off of a garage that had something like 28 or 30 15" woofers in JBL cabinets.

And it was not that big of a room..........

It was impressive.
