Default My 212 pound baby is on its way.

LOL.
Yeah, I was a home theater nut. This is not my first sub (well not the first over the 100 pound area)
Will be my 5th, I think.
But is by far the biggest as of yet at 212lb 16" with 8" VC.

Copied and pasted from my email.

My truck cost me less than that, and came with a radio/CD player.

I have (and now for sale) an HSU MK2 Piano Black.
Had 3 of these, the nicest one (had to sell when I needed money) was the Rosewood, Piano Black model.
That thing was beautiful.
Had a SVS older model if I remember something like the PB1000.

I doubt seriously I am your age. I turn 79 in Dec.

Don't want no Porsche, altho they are nice. Rather get my '69 VW Bug going, and will if I ever win the lottery.

Oh, did I mention I want a GM 3800 V6, or LS, with sequential dual turbos, in it? Nothing outlandish, around 600 HP will do. I believe that is called a sleeper. Hehehe It'll have a radio too.

Yeah going through midlife, I was going to buy a Viper. But then decided nope, don't need it, would rather get the truck with the V-10 viper engine in it.
Never had a VW bug, but did drive one, and it was a blast to drive, the easiest stick anyone could ever learn on (however I learned on a VERY stiff mustang clutch).
Basically a Porsche is a VW with lock washers and thread locker on all the bolts. gives it just that tad more bling.

Just looked at James bio. Got to love this,
"Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

Anyway, I felt it cheaper and MUCH MUCH nicer to just build a home theater, the sound is better than a IMAX theater, with a damn good picture.
And cheaper than taking family to movies at nearly 50 dollars a pop per person each time, or spending a few nights in a hotel at Disneyland at 1,000.00 per day.
My screen I used for a few years was 10 foot wide by 8 foot. With a 1080p projector.
Had to rewire house to get 30 amp to each outlet, mainly for the multiple amps I use on all separates.

Now I have to do the same with the garage for the shop, but it is probably cheaper for an electrician just to wire in a new panel. Then I will wire each separate outlet.
Panel getting 220 and 110, so for the breakers I will have both options. A small breaker panel, no more than 12 switches. Perhaps a 75 amp, but with the price being about the same, might as well just do a 100 amp panel.
