In a couple weeks, we will be saying good-bye to the house we call home and off to a apartment. It saddens me because I really grew to love 2-channel in this house since we first rented 2 years ago. The apartment will be torture to me. More so, because I won't complete my crossover mods in time to hear them properly broken in at a "nice" level. I've had even a couple arguments with my other half saying we should just put them into storage until such time we buy our first home and then we can enjoy them fully. I even tried arguing to put the stereo in a bedroom to help eliminate some of the sound from traveling. It will certainly be a low for me. But all wont be bad. The sacrifices we have to make in order to save and start life in ones own paid possessions.
The only nice things about this place is the following:
- Concrete construction between floors and suites
- Acceptable sized room**
**Yes it's finally going to happen. I will finally have a room large enough to PROPERLY set up these speakers. The new living room they will be in is 15x13. The speakers will be on the long wall and the living room is sealed with the exception of a 5' opening into the room. I'm optimistic it will sound great with some tweaking!
This has been stressful as it took two months of searching to find a place but we had to act fast as time was getting near the end of our lease and vacancy around here is around 1% or less. The plan is prep for a house and in 2-4 years... hopefully make it a reality.
The other nice thing about a apartment that I'm actually excited about, is I can get my ears on TUBES! I cant crank music so what better opportunity than to get into Tubes. Be a great time to get my ears on some low wattage class A gear like a Pass Aleph 30!
On to new adventures with this hobby!
