    Anyone living in the snow/rust belt tried Fluid Film? I have an 8 year old truck and the undercarriage is rusting to sh!t. I've never liked the idea of sealcoating, but this is different. Some good testimonials/videos on the Tube. I applied this today and the job went smoother than expected. Not sure why I didn't do it sooner? This is a weekend and foul weather vehicle for me ... 2011 with 48K miles. Will last me a long time if I can arrest the rust.

    The title track from the new Tool album, Fear Inoculum is a great example of SH:

    The black screen of death - as this problem is also affectionately known as - appears to be wide-spread issue especially after a major update to Windows 10, beginning with branch 1809, 1903, and now 1909. Users experiencing this issue see a black screen before login (with or without a mouse pointer active). http://www.infopackets.com/news/10664/how-fix-windows-10-black-screen-login

    Fair enough. The driver began 'barking' and moderately high volumes. No surround or spider issues are apparent, in fact there's no recognizable defect other than performance.

    Chances vary depending on what is actually wrong with it. I've replaced foam surrounds on speaker drivers (no big deal, a junior-high kid could do it.) I also re-centered a voice coil/pole piece/magnet assembly on a 6.5" Polk mid-woofer. A junior-high kid is probably not going to do that; but a reasonable adult with "mechanical aptitude" can. In short, the "fix" depends on the "problem"; and you haven't said what's wrong with yours. It would "probably" be "worth it" if you value original drivers more than repops.

    That's exactly my thought, I just lacked a resource and wondered about the general cost.

    Chances are good at repairing it at a place like simply speakers. Why not have it ready the next time you have an issue?

    Finally got my replacement honeycomb woofer installed and everything is back to normal. It came shipped with form-fitting styrofoam in the perfectly sized box which is where the suspect woofer now resides. What are the chances of a service repairing this driver? Would it be worth it? I hate to just throw it out because it looks perfect.

    My 2 channel system has been upgraded yet again by a pair of Silver 7t's I bought a couple of years ago and traded restoration of them by Dennis Miller. (He got a great CT-Seven out of the deal!) These things sound fantastic! Listening to Tool's Fear Inoculum right now. Dynamic range is amazing. Detail is to die for. One problem, where am I going to put the turntable, now? Guess I'll have to put the Oppo on a shelf. System is: iPad into Gramofon WiFi streamer, Oppo BDP-105D, TX-11b(recapped by me), 4000t (Bonzoro modded), Silver 7t's(Dennis Miller restored), Tekton Pendragon speakers. Power Wedge 116, StraightWire IC's and Monster Cable speaker wire round out the team.

    The Gundry mod makes a vast difference in SH. WOW! That is the most dramatic effect of SH that I've heard yet. The soundstage expanded beyond the walls. As you, I rarely listen with SH engaged, and I found the effect marginal without the Gundry mod, but on a few recordings with the Gundry mod... Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms Doobie Brothers - What Were Once Vices... Patricia Barber - Cafe Blue Santana - Caravanserai, Abraxas There was another that escapes me now that was very enjoyable. I'll have to listen to some smooth jazz, country, and classical with SH engaged.
