Good luck with pulling out all the stops :wink_face: !

 

I assume cornnies to be Klipsh Cornwals - although i ADORE electrostatics, there are moment I would "kill" to be able to crank up the sytem above normal levels - just for the fun of being capable of doing it :evil:.

Yeah tell me about it. Sometimes when the wife is away I do have the tendency to make stuff fall off the walls for fun. 100 plus sensitivity combined with high power handling equals super duper loud.biggrin.gif

Yes, those times when the Mrs. steps out can be times of some glorious sound at my house.  She is not much for high SPLs.

Women generally tend to dislike high SPLs - EXCEPT for a very special "species" competing in tournament held in Australia. It is about which woman can yell the loudest - calling her man for dinner. 

 

Winners are in the 120 dB + category ...:eek: !

You'll have to admit, if not for her keeping your gears in check, you'd go Smithsoinian... stuff in every nook & cranny with placards for each. :tongue_smile:

Then again, it sounds more like an indictment for men who try wandering off. :D

It is no coincidence this tournament is held in Australia - men working in vast outback have much better chances of hearing their better halves calling them for dinner if they are loud ENOUGH.

 

But in less acoustically overwhelming spaces than outback it *might* be a bit too much - and can be understood as per your comment above :L3000:.

From "insert attachments", move 7 icons to the left and click "insert image" instead.

 

Cheers! :beerchug:
