    I do believe that building can be seen from my roof. This is located just South of Charlotte, no?

    Man, that looks just like the dump called Heritage USA that Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker built here in Fort Mill, SC. Eerily similar but on a closer look, not quite.

    I KNEW that was a psyche ward just from the architecture. They all look the same.
    And NO, I've never been inside one!

    The psych ward here in Salem is the one they used for the movie "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest". They recently tore down and rebuilt the buildings, but left one original except they repainted it. The people of Salem wouldn't stand for the "historical" building being torn down. Here is the original:

    Thanks Rick, these apple products seem to flip photos randomly. That picture showed up the right way on my iPad, even in the thread! I had to open the thread on the computer to realize what you fixed!

    These CATV fits perfect for the Class D project. Knowing you, I am pretty the parts are not so cheap inside than the skin.

    Ahh!Theres Rich's next tweak.If it works in his amp I'll give it a try.
    Ahh..Yes. I've seem Rich making a real good move on this 2 channel rig and looks like he is getting a major upgrade with everything. But there is one tiny problem. I don't see any speaker relays in the amp nudies he posted.

    Ideas welcome on that. But for now, the long waiting line array project to begin. I got to order a few of the GR-Research open baffled woofers to see how it copes with the tweets and Markaudio Alpairs.
