Think his brother in law is no longer in the biz. I'm sure you could order something online.

Just wanted to say your work is amazing! How do you accomplish such professional results as a hobbyist?

Was always handy, so that helps. Also, the right tools are essential. You can't be afraid to fail, if you screw up, do it again, its cheaper if you do it twice than hiring someone. Last but no least, the forum is where all the knowledge is. Pretty amazing, bright people here and very talented.

I ended up having my left knee replaced about two weeks before Xmas - now I have a matching pair. Still doing PT, a few more weeks hopefully, don't have all the flex I need yet. That'll come in time, hopefully.

Trying to scrap up some money to finish out the theater. Still sitting waiting on insulation and drywall. I think what I spent so far getting it to where it is now cost me more than the other completed theater.

My son is now a freshman in high school and is sitting varsity, we're suppose to play in the district championship tomorrow and that's pretty much consumed my spare time since June. Then off to regionals, sub-state and state if they get that far. The team is 27-2 and is now ranked #2 in the state of TN for AAA, but were ranked #1 up until the second lost. He's already signed up for two leagues this spring and another traveling camp in June. They went to a bunch of colleges and played in tournaments last June - including several days at Ole Miss where they played against a pair of seven footers and beat them twice. Pretty proud he's gotten this far as a freshman, should be a great next few years for him if he doesn't get injured. He's close to 6'6" - he turned 15 Thanksgiving week. Only about 160 though.

Hope all is well with everyone!

Great news about your new knee and your son's team! Tell him to hit the weight room hard...my biggest regret as a former college basketball and baseball player. I was 6'5 and 150 when I had my freshman physical. Didn't have the ball handling skills to play the 2, was undersized (under weight actually) for the 3 and forget about the 4 that I routinely played in high school (and dominated at least in my own mind!).

Good advice. I've got him working with a trainer off season, he's really dedicated - he just loves basketball. He was working with him during preseason and in two months he increased his vertical 2.5 inches. I'm hoping he can put on another 20 lbs before his sophomore year.

David(Dgage)has been to a couple up in Virginia and North Carolina. Unfortunately, I have always had work conflicts and couldn't attend. Maybe with three of us in Knoxville, we should look to plan one in 2015.

Hi Bud,

Sounds like I'm pretty close to you in West Knox and would love to meet up with you and Coach for lunch sometime. As far as a GTG, my living room theater is in transition, yeah that's it, as my focus has been on starting a new subwoofer business. But I've helped Coach with his theater and sounds like we're both pretty advanced DIYers. If I can help with anything, PM me. For lunch too.

Here are the subs and stands I built for Coach...his room is so sweet now.
Another Impractical Build for the Masses: One Sub = 126db @ 16Hz

Darin,

Darin, having pinball as a primary hobby is a little weird so you should fit in just right. I was thinking the 4 of us could get lunch sometime soon. I'll send you a PM with a link to the secret handshake and we'll need video proof you've mastered it before we can hang out. By the way, my main hobby is starting projects...if I could just find a way to finish one.
