Why don't you just make 10 a little louder. :wink:

Some music you just can't listen to quietly.

I've always thought that if you really want to hear it - it should be at the ORIGINAL VOLUME.
(My neighbors hate me for that)

Lucky them that I don't have the means to support an accurate repro of an Ozzy or Rammstien Concert.

-He states, drily-

Even Yanni was loud in true form! In all probability the least distrubing music I like is George Winston or David Arkenstone. But I truly believe a quote I can't pin down the owner of - it may well have been Mozart -

"All music is good music - except the BORING kind"

I'm also attracted to a lot of classical music - including the Pachelbel Canon and also the Gypsy Kings, though I must confess I am a Gabacho... :lol:

So you see - I am "ECCLECTIC" as they come.

I was trying to be part of the joke.

"THESE GO TO 11"

Ddog looking at your photo of the dog in the car makes me think if dogs were the ones who invented cars there would be no windshields .

I was wrong about the amp above it goes to 32. 8)
Or 560W in to 8 ohms.

I am going to be tuning up some weed eat eaters and chainsaws soon.
It is about time to start using them.

JACK IT

If the neighbors complain, they were never young

What makes you want to win?
Why do you try when it sucks
Why don't you give in?
THAT is an "AMERICAN"


And you thought you were just being silly....

So when people do not understand your music - there it is

"WE ARE A FREE PEOPLE, TO THINK WHAT WE LIKE"
KMA - I am still myself

My neighbors are far away from my house, from my house I can not see any other houses, so if I can stand the volume they will never hear it.
I could have some friends come by and jam outside then they would, but they would just come by and join in.
8) :lol: :wink:

I got the "FREE" tractor I was working on running last week (2 year old Scotts Deere), now I'm planning to pull the 15 horse out of my 5 year old Craftsman and stuff in an 18 horse Briggs twin with a wide open dual exhaust!!!

I've slowly customised the Craftsman from the beginning, and plan for it to be a small plowing machine...

~The above picture is why the Craftsman tractor is nicknamed "BULLFROG"

Nice wheelie!

I have a neighbor a few miles away that races lawn mowers. I stopped by for a barn sale and they had some hot rod lawn mowers there. They have a bus that says some thing about lawn mower racing on its side. It cracks me up; people will race any thing that moves.

I have been working on my lawn mowers, chain saws, weed eaters and other gear and I am starting to get faster at it, so even an old dog can learn new tricks.
