well that's certaintly right. I brought one home yesterday and one home today. These things are HUGE.

I took one out of the package at work on my curious co-workers and boss's request. They were all in shock.

What do you do with a speaker like that they said? What is the deal with those binding posts? Do you hook them up to jumper cables? etc etc etc. They couldn't believe people put that size of a speaker in their home instead of using them at the local sports stadium! I chuckled because I know quite a few people that do exactly that! It is sorta funny when you think of it. 101dB sensitivity, several thousand watts, in a 20x20 foot room. Overkill, Glorious Overkill.

I have a 20watt t-amp at work. I half wanted to hook that up and play near reference volume in the office off the $20 parts express t-amp. Boy, that would have been good for a laugh!

I'm 100% certain that you will only be able to get one speaker in your car at a time.

They actually arrived today. My mailroom called and said you have two HUGE packages here, and you will need a truck to get them home. Do you have a truck?

I said no.

She sighed.

Ha -- I won't need a truck will I mojave? I think they should stack okay in the backseat of the grand prix laying down right?

I had the JTR Noesis speakers for a couple weeks and someone else in Omaha wanted to hear them next. They shipped to Archaea yesterday and they will be in KC for a few weeks before heading on to Des Moines.

absolutely

JBrax It's really no problem. I've just wanted to be a part of one of these for awhile now. Would it be ok if I pm you my cell # so that in the future I can be contacted and make early arrangements to attend?

sort notice is partially my fault, and partially just the nature of the opportunity. I was notified mid last week that Jeff was going to send the speakers to let them be heard by some of the KC gang, and that I would be the initial point of contact. I am swinging this thing together last minute and initially just posted at avs, but then thought I'd like to share the opportunity with other people and meet more KC enthusiasts! I'm sorry you can't join us this time. I'll try to share future opportunities with more notice!

JBrax I would have loved to come but can I ask why such short notice? I live in Gladstone and have really wanted to be part of something like this but unfortunately with 3 days notice I can't. I have 17 family members coming to my house for Thanksgiving and LOTS of work to do before they get here.
