  1. Nice bike and 4 wheeler......This is my offroad toy. 2004 Jeep Rubicon with 4.5" Rubicon Express lift kit, Toys By Troy crossover steering, 5:13 gears Warn 9.5TI winch and a whole bunch of armor... Maybe this should be in another thread regarding the members offroad toys. lol Yea, I'am single and lovin it!!
  2. Damn!! That's one hell of a bike! Us older guys need comfort on the highway. I think I only tapped out at 108 miles per hour with my bike when I tested out the max speed. You've got to be a youngster and single to have that ride. LOL I don't think I could ever lift the front tires off my ,800 lb bike even if I had a fat chick on the back.
  3. I have a 2013 Road King Classic with the 103 engine and 6 speed tranny. Bought it used with 900 miles on it. The only mods I did myself were: Vance & Hines true dual header pipes, V & H monster rounds exhaust (live in an older neighborhood), programmer, big sucker air intake with 55 caliber air filter cover, lighted skull horn cover and multiple upgraded chrome accessories. Don't plan on getting a cam as it's just a crusier. Also, installed Motorcyle tunes 5" kicker speakers on the handlebars with Cerviv Vega amp mounted in the left saddlebag and also have Bluetooth capability. May install a subwoofer in the saddlebag as well...
  4. Here is a better pic of this vintage receiver...
  5. Pink Floyd...welcome to the machine. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjzrLmExs3pAhXMB80KHVFrABEQ3ywwAHoECBgQBg&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dlt-udg9zQSE&usg=AOvVaw1CZz194aW9Xs3Oqf-Wcmfx
  6. I have a vintage Marantz SR5100 Gold receiver rated at a whopping 65 watts per channel. The SR8100 was only rated at 90 wats per channel...big wattage in the day! lol The only problem with it is the stereo knob has to be messed with to get both channels to work...probably just needs a shot of deoxit. Can't fiqure out why I can't upload a pic in jpeg format....may have to compress the file?
  7. Very cool site! I already have the Carver bug. I bought my silver editions off the showroom floor in 1991 and took them home the same day. They lasted 31 years before failing and I drive them hard with clean power!
  8. Nice smoker! I have 2 Masterbuilt propane smokers I bought at Lowes. One for the house and one for the hunting camp. I set the temp at 240 degrees which seems like the best temp for outstanding results. I mix apple, cherry and hickory chips together for a unique taste. I fill the reservoir with apple cider vinegar. 3.5 - 4 hrs is the average for babyback ribs. Next is trying out a brisket to see if it turns out good. Which rub do you use for brisket?
  9. Welcome! You will love that A-760X! I have 2 of them set in mono mode and they make my Silver Editions sing beautifully until the ribbons blew last week. Once you refresh the amp, it should provide years of service life. Those pots protruding from the rear for gain control break easy so hopefully they packaged it properly.
  10. Rob and AndrewJohn, thanks for the greetings and info on who to contact for repairs...most appreciated. I'll try and post a pic of my setup...I would love to have those Silver 9T's!
  11. I just joined this site and love the information that everyone shares. My system features a vintage Luxman R117 receiver, ADC SS315-X equalizer, Carver Holography C9, 2 Carver Silver Editions being driven by 2 Carver A-760X amps in mono mode. I also have 2 sets of Bose 301's series IV on front and rear wall. Unfortunately, both of my 48" ribbons shorted open on the Carvers due to old age and magnets falling apart. I'am thinking of sending them both in for repairs but it's very costly...$800.00 for both with shipping. I may just purchase another used set of Silvers or Platinums if they are in great condition and use mine for spare parts. Also, does anyone know where I can get information on how to bi amp these Carver speakers? Where to buy the bi amp kit with instructions, etc. Thanks for any replies.... Tom
