RE: Speaker Mounting 101
The hand - Unfamiliar with those tracks - Will concede the hand and console myself with ZZ Top and Hughie Lewis and the News.

The Sound of Music? Yep a musical (not my taste at all) but Steven cruising in one of his Mustangs wearing lederhosen singing 'The hills are alive.....' at the top of his voice?
You just have to giggle and point.

RE: Speaker Mounting 101
The Song is actually called "Long Time". The "Foreplay" / instrumental part, is the 3 or 4 minute lead into the song itself. I also revel in some REO, and Led Zepplin. Foreigner, Journey, Eagles. All the Greats!


I can picture it now, Steven would look great in lederhosen ! Now if his singing voice holds out we're in great shape! How bout it Steven. Hows your singing voice?

Who knows maybe we got the making's of an Group? Stranger things have happened. Look at what Steven Tyler Has done! Aerosmith another great group, but He definitely proved you don't have to have the greatest voice. Just great songs. JTS 71 Mach1

RE: Speaker Mounting 101
Still laughing at your invitation to Steven!

All good music! Can I get an invite to your next BBQ? I would bring a couple of discs by a bloke who performs as 'Nick Skitz'. He remixes existing songs into extended dance tracks. Even stuff I don't like does not induce 'track skip' in me. His treatment of any song is 'that' interesting.

And back to the plot:
I always go up a size or two in speaker cable - That 'fuse wire' they provide with speakers may be 'adequate' but that is a long way from 'good'.
Probably overkill - I don't care. I did my house speakers and then a friends. They listened to their 'favorite' and suddenly noted that a certain rift sounded 'that much' better. Mind you his car speakers did have the 360* air-gap. Guess how good they sounded!

RE: Speaker Mounting 101
Sorry to disappoint but I don't believe that I have ever sung the sound of music in any vehicle.

And lederhosen - I don't think so. Bib overalls but not lederhosen.

My singing voice - still strong as it gets practice every Sunday and Wednesday.

Hey, but thanks for the invitation.

We only post to inspire!

Bib and brace would mean singing along to 'Working Class Man' then 'Khe-Sanh', Jimmy Barnes &/or Cold Chisel

Hey Steven, I wondered when you were going to chime in. All in the most heartfelt sense of fun! I would have passed on the Lederhosen myself.
