Speaker Slip Covers
In the late 60s my JBL Dorian S12s needed protection from our cat. That was the days of clear vinyl sofa protectors. Ask your grandmother. 😊 I went to a local slipcover maker and had them make 2 flat bottom bags whose inside dimensions were just ... 
Do you past equipment appear in your dreams?
I still have my past equipment. 😊  
Suggestions for testing a never installed, 20-year boxed amp.
Before I powered up my long dormant Pioneer SX-1050 I found a current limiting device on eBay. It used a light bulb to someone limit current. It powered up OK. I then used a multimeter to check for DC on the speaker terminals. Luckily there was no... 
Favorite moment with music in your car.
Late 1998. My client in Italy gave me a new company car. Audi R4. I had a music system installed. One ZZ Top song had such low bass it gave me goosebumps. Had more impact than my JBL L222 Disco towers at home.  
how to remove a woofer from b@w801n

Classical Record Collection Needs New Home
I donated my Dad’s vinyl to my county’s symphony orchestra. They have regular auctions to raise money. People win a 78, keep it for a while then donate back.   
Dog pissed on speaker
In the late 60s my first pair of speakers were JBL Dorian S12s. Our cat liked the grills. In those days grandma’s all had clear vinyl covers on their furniture. I found a shop and had them make me 2 flat bottom bags the size of my speakers. When n...

Do You Buy Speakers Without Hearing Them?
Lates 60s I bought JBL Dorian S12 after hearing a huge JBL system at a Dick Clark concert production at the Chicago Stock Yards amphitheater. I think I did listen to them at Allied Electronics on south Western avenue when buying. Mid 70s I bought...
