and somehow became fixtures in the house.
Here's the trick for swaying the wife,
to have washer and dryer sized speakers!
The owner had described the other,
so I was expecting exactly what you see here -
sun bleached, burnt and water damaged wood.
stoagie or roach,
this was a mark of honor not of shame!
Still bummed I didn't meet the guy.

Crisp and airy,
they filled the garage without feeling forced.
Now for the secret weapon.
Our landlord had left a couple almost empty cans of this stuff,
I'm usually suspect of quick fixes,
but this stuff worked wonders on our floor,
as well as an earlier speaker project.
I went big on the stain, wax and some fine steel wool.

So far the 85 wpc kenwood kr-7600 was too much,

The 1972 Sansui has a warm sound,
and just enough power to kick in the woofers.
The 110wpc Sansui 9090 is waiting it's turn though!
