Hey Alaska,

I don't understand what you mean by losing 80wpc?

When you drive more than 2 speakers, isn't the theoretical net Spl increase on more channels driven making more efficient use of the total watts available in each circumstance? Since the first few watts do most of the work I understand.

Even if it means only driving each channel with a max of 80w x7 vs 160w x 2?

The net output is much increased, no?

It was Sierra Nevada Torpedo. They liked it.

But I'm really the only one in the house that seems to like Belgian beer much. So, I need Peter and Ken to come over more often.

My wife has been making pulled pork in the crock pot (gasp!) and while it obviously doesn't have the smoke component, it's ease of preparation means I get to eat it more often. In conjunction, I've been tarting up bottled BBQ sauce with apple cider vinegar and whatever else jumps off the shelf. Satisfactory!

So far so good on the Bosch dishwasher, btw.

Recently viewed the Zeppelin Celebration Day video and was really impressed with the production.

Cheers.

Hey Tom. You forgot to tell us what colour shorts you were wearing when you dropped the top on your car and drove about town with your hair blowing in the breeze.

OK, now seriously, what the heck would I do with 180 wpc all channels driven when most of the time my power draw is less than 2 watts to make my ears hurt? Well, if my name was Ian I could throw a party on my dock and play music for everyone on the lake, but its not and I can't.

I used to know all those numbers, but really, it doesn't matter. As long as I have a reasonable amount of power and I don't buy the cheapest receiver on the block I'm getting all the power I need for my system to sing.

I actually DID have the top down today. It was glorious.

Sorry I was tardy, Chess. Had to pick up the mower and edger from service. I'm still really happy with that Honda mower even though it only puts out 80wpc.

I'm still happy with my Craftsman although it's quite heavy, which prevents me from mounting it 2-3' above my head.

Heh heh heh... imagining a lawnmower hanging over someone's head makes me laugh.
