as sometimes it seems things
want to gravitate together.
as the actual story can sound tragic,
or even pathetic!
to pump sound in the shop.
For a relatively small speaker,
the sound was amazing.
Deep bass made the parts rattle.
In the Grateful Dead lot in the summer.
Now they don't look as small!
We had a generator
with the kenwood kr-7600 hooked up.
Did I write about this yet?
it was borderline crazy,
attracting deadheads far and wide.
Gotta teach the kids controlled mayhem!
was relegated to shop duty.
Right before xmas I got into a bind,
not gettin reimbursed for work.
Thanks a lot James...
Time for a fire sale!
Tommy T (grey shirt) scooped up the speakers.
Cue sad music...
four awesome speakers :(
and a bunch of miscellany for future posts.
and a fraction was stashed
for at least a replacement shop setup.
and so did these Klipsch KLF-10's.
Got them both down to semi-affordable,
and the Klipsch guy bailed.
more in my budget,
but had weathered woofers.
Cool but I wanted immediate satisfaction.
The ad was terribly written,
not even the proper brand or model.

Super friggin awesome.
This 1974 Kenwood KR-9400 is a landmark,
arguably the first 120 wpc receiver made,
bringing on the monster receiver wars of the 70's.
Now a reason for it's existence.

the VMPS's needed the extra power
to keep up the same db's,
but they sound great!
sound crispy enough.
Wonder if there's a way to modify?
We've got a shop system
that was the same price as the fortes,
and I know Tommy will dig them.
And the wife's happier,
as the house isn't as cluttered!
Gotta be optimistic!
